Donald Trump's big week (Clinton News Network Fake News Alert!)

(CNN)Donald Trump is embarking on the most crucial week of his transition into the presidency -- and, as usual, he's at the epicenter of multiple controversies.

Several of the President-elect's most prominent Cabinet picks will appear on Capitol Hill this week for confirmation hearings that could be brutal. Trump will also hold his first formal news conference since the summer on Wednesday to address potential conflicts of interest that could surround his presidency. President Barack Obama will move closer to exiting the stage when he delivers a farewell address Tuesday night from Chicago. Though the inauguration is 12 days away, the swirl of events means Trump's presidency effectively begins this week.

And as Washington moves closer to a historic transfer of power, Trump is in another pop culture feud -- this time with Meryl Streep after the actress offered a thinly veiled critique of the President-elect during Sunday night's Golden Globes.

Why should they be "brutal?" All the Cabinet picks need to say in response to the Democrat's questions is "I don't recall."

LOL! The "Hillary defense." Then, after the hearings, they can "high-five" their staffers.

“Donald Trump is embarking on the most crucial week of his transition into the presidency — and, as usual, he’s at the epicenter of multiple controversies.” - controversies caused by partisan attack dog media talking heads at CNN

“Several of the President-elect’s most prominent Cabinet picks will appear on Capitol Hill this week for confirmation hearings that could be brutal.”
They will be brutal only because of partisan attack dog media talking heads at CNN
“Trump will also hold his first formal news conference since the summer on Wednesday to address potential conflicts of interest that could surround his presidency”- only partisan media attack dog talking heads at CNN think this is the reason he needs to have a press conference.

“Confirmation hearings: What to watch this week
And as Washington moves closer to a historic transfer of power, Trump is in another pop culture feud — this time with Meryl Streep after the actress offered a thinly veiled critique of the President-elect during Sunday night’s Golden Globes.” - another controversy caused solely by a liberal nut job and reported breathlessly by media attack dogs at CNN.
