  • Comparing Donald Trump And Barack Obama’s First Press Conferences In Office

    02/18/2017 1:16:55 AM PST · by ColdOne · 19 replies ^ | 2/16/17 | Kaitlan Collins
    President Trump defended his performance during his first four weeks in office and criticized the “out of control” media during a hastily assembled press briefing at the White House on Thursday. Here’s how his first briefing as president measured up to Barack Obama’s on Feb. 9, 2009. Trump’s opening statement was nearly three times as long as Obama’s. Trump: 3,547 words. Obama: 1,196 words. And that was before they took questions from the press. Trump’s lasted almost 90 minutes. Obama’s was right at an hour. WATCH:

    President Obama just did some hip-hop level trash-talking, and Hillary Clinton was his target. The Prez took the shot during a news conference from the White House ... when he was asked what the Dems can learn from Donald Trump's huge victory in the Electoral College. He didn't parse words in explaining why he won certain battleground states that Hillary lost. In a nutshell ... her math sucked in states like Iowa -- where she only visited 3 times after the Caucus. This won't be well-received in the Clinton's living room. Truth hurts?

    "Barack Obama Warns Black Lives Matter ‘Rhetoric,’ Violence, May Stop His Takeover of State, Local Police" President Barack Obama is warning his angry supporters that more violence and “rhetoric” by the Black Lives Matter movement could derail his campaign to federalize state and local police forces. “In a movement like Black Lives Matter, there’s always going to be some folks who say things that are stupid, or imprudent, or overgeneralized, or harsh,” Obama told reporters at a Sunday press conference, just three days after an African-American cop-hating racist murdered five police officers who were guarding a Black Lives Matter protest...

    At tonight’s ABC town hall on race and gun violence, the lieutenant governor of Texas confronted President Obama over his reactions to shootings like in Dallas. Dan Patrick––no fan of Obama’s––said after Dallas that hatred against officers and anti-police rhetoric on social media fuels so much rage and hate. Patrick told Obama that cops across the nation do not feel in their hearts that their president is on their side and doing everything he can to protect them. He suggested to the president that he should “consider being careful when there is an incident of not being too quick to...

    President Obama said it’s up to the press to try to expose Donald Trump’s policies, saying Friday that the White House is too serious for a reality television approach to the campaign. “I just want to emphasize the degree to which we are in serious times and this is a serious job,” Mr. Obama said in a brief press conference at the White House, where he was asked about Mr. Trump becoming the GOP’s presumptive nominee. “This is not entertainment, this is not a reality show, this is a contest for presidency of the United States. What that means is...

    Due up at 1635ET, President Obama holds his first post-Scalia press conference. We assume the propaganda du jour will be the imminent need to appoint a new SCOTUS justice... and why anyone who blocks that plan is "peddling fiction." While he is up there, we assume some comments regarding the escalations in Syria will be discussed... and why Russia (and Putin most clearly) are to blame.

    Hours after President Obama announced in a 2014 speech that he was escalating his campaign against Islamic extremists, a number of prominent columnists suggested they knew exactly what he was thinking. Michael Tomasky, a correspondent for The Daily Beast, wrote that "Obama clearly feels he has the constitutional authority to go after ISIS anywhere and everywhere." Gerald F. Seib, the Washington bureau chief for The Wall Street Journal, was equally certain about what "the president calculated."

    President Barack Obama said Thursday that U.S. intelligence and counterterrorism officials have received no specific, credible information suggesting a potential terrorist attack against the United States. He said Americans must be vigilant this holiday season. "We cannot give in to fear or change how we live our lives," Obama said in brief remarks to employees at the National Counterterrorism Center. "We will not be terrorized. We've prevailed over much greater threats than this; we will prevail again." ...

    In a broad-based press conference, President Obama is expected to address everything from climate change and fossil fuels to more mundane threats such as ISIS, Boko Haram, Turkey, Russia, and Saudi Arabia. As you watch the President explain how he is solving all these 'issues', bear in mind his statement from earlier today that the global pact on climate control is "an act of defiance" against terrorism that proves the world stands undeterred by ISIS. Yeah that really showed them, eh?! Note: Live feed in the article ... have a waste basket handy if you chose to watch!
