RUSH: In very measured tones, the president is firing howitzers at the media and the Washington establishment. Ill characterize this later. Lets just JIP it now to get in here while we can.
THE PRESIDENT: doing what I pledge to do. Thats all Im doing. I put it out before the American people, got 306 Electoral College votes. I wasnt supposed to get 222. They said, Theres no way to get 222; 230 is impossible, 270, which you need? That was laughable. We got 306. Because people came out and voted like theyd never seen before, so thats the way it goes. I guess it was the biggest Electoral College win since Ronald Reagan. In other words, the medias trying to attack our administration because they know we are following through on pledges that we made, and theyre not happy about it, for whatever reason.
RUSH: Hes really attacked them here before.
THE PRESIDENT: A lot of people arent happy with it. In fact, Ill be in Melbourne, Florida, five oclock on Saturday
RUSH: He really launched into them.
THE PRESIDENT: and I heard just heard that the crowds are massive that want to be there. I turned on the TV, opened the newspapers, and I see stories of chaos. Chaos! Yet it is the exact opposite. This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine

Leaky leaks are coming from within Intelligence Community.
Everyone is afraid Trump will drain the Swamp People. Trump is now the Swamp Fox!
RUSH: Folks, hes enjoying this like Ive never seen a president enjoy a press conference. Hes toying with these people.
RUSH: Trump is the guy calling them out. Ive never seen anything like this today. I have never seen it. We have wanted Republican presidents all of my life to deal with these people this way, and the only thing we ever got was Spiro Agnew. Weve not seen anything like this, and Trump did it with an air of confidence and self-assuredness. He was not nervous at all. He was having fun with them. He was toying with them. Its like if you got a cat. You know how you get these little laser pointers and you have a little kitten or a cat and the cat goes nuts chasing the light? It will run into a wall.
President Trump was awesome!
Yep, sure was.
Calling the media EXACTLY what it is...Lying sacks of crap!
Just as I’d hoped. AG Sessions is on board. Trump does much better with him around for advice.
A major media meltdown is coming...A room load of media dummies are no match for him. He thrives on confrontation with them!
Give me your best shot media...! I’ll wrap your nuts in a bowtie around your neck!
I just predicted on Twitter so mark it down: before end of Trump’s first term media will be begging Trump for opportunity to do favorable interviews.
Was this a scheduled press conference, or did President Trump walk into the press room unannounced, surpising everyone there?
They will be asking for their balls back before that.
Scheduled. If you have seen it, you need to.
Thanks! Yes, I will watch it tonight. It sounds like it’s entertaining, encouraging, and enlightening.
This press conference is one for the history books. It's exactly what was needed to stop this pile-on by the media since Flynn's resignation.
Thanks, I plan to watch it again myself. :)
The best press conference I have ever seen. The press had their jaws dropped, and then Trump smacked their jaws shut. He took questions from NPR, CNN, BBC and several other antagonistic media reporters. And he gave it to them harder than they could handle.
Now I assume there will be some nasty articles tomorrow. But that would happen anyway. What everyone needs to know is that the fourth estate is just as corrupt and lazy as the other three estates. They don’t ask interesting questions that everyone wants to hear. They ask the same questions that nobody cares about. The common American did not know who Flynn was, and now they don’t care much. But the press has been writing about him for days and is likely to keep writing about him for another week. Which is why we don’t watch their news anymore. Its not news its a vendetta.
