Trump-appointed Judge. Sad.
Wow. What planet am I on? Emergency to give a reporter a press pass????
How about NO or you and what army, Judge. Or, as an alternative, no more press conferences?
Trump should just walk out without answering any questions if he is present.
Because the reporter is a Democrat. That's the way things work on Planet Earth.
Good luck with that, judge!
I wouldn’t do it. How would the Court enforce it?
Postpone daily press briefings entirely...until the court case is decided because it’s “under investigation” as per DOJ/FBI SOP, drag it out in court until when ever..or never.
In the mean time daily briefings are available on the
So Reporters are allowed to just scream and yell at the President? That’s ridiculous.
Shut down the entire WH press corp. Period.
Lets see the Federal Marshalls enforce it for the judge.
Just talk to press gaggles and special interviews.
Don’t bother with the regular press beiefings as long as CNN is there.
Enough is enough.
Twitter makes press conferences obsolete.
Trump should just say no and carry on, take it to supreme court, and if it does not work eliminate the briefings altogether
Simple solution - suspend all WH press briefings for the foreseeable future.
Let him in and completely ignore him. Turn the other press against him
no, no, no, No - bullshit!
just letting him back in reinforces this b/s that judges rule supreme, even over the most insignificant crap.
I heartily second x100 Truth29's in post 6.
The White House is NOT a public building if you and I cannot just stroll in when we feel like it.
