President Obama will hold a press conference Friday before departing on a 17-day Hawaiian winter vacation.
"You can put on your calendar that the president will convene his traditional end-of-year news conference," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Thursday.
The White House said the event would likely come in the afternoon, although logistical details are still being ironed out. It will be Obama's first White House press conference since he addressed reporters a day after the November midterm elections.
The president is likely to face questions on a range of issues, including his recently announced effort to normalize relations with Cuba, as well as the cyberattack on Sony Pictures Entertainment.
On Thursday, Earnest said the hack which is thought to be the work of North Korea was being treated as "a serious national security matter" and that President Obama was considering "the range of appropriate responses."
Obama could also face questions on the recently passed $1.1 trillion government funding bill which he supported despite opposition from prominent Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). The president could also get asked about Russia's ongoing financial crisis.
His once a year “news” conference

‘The _Resident is likely to receive numerous softly tossed questions on a range of issues, and will either outright LIE or give his usual non-answer answers.’

just tell him to get out of town, HE WON'T BE MISSED.
What’s the point of this?
He will suggest the new Congress will be a do-nothing Congress. And he will invite the to work with him on solutions that are completely wrong for America.
Will either of the Castros be attending as co-conferencees or are they being saved for next year’s Kennedy Center Honors?
Guess they’ll be putting all the softball pitchers up front.
I’ve got my year-end response already prepared.
Oh , another Insanity filled , BLAH BLAH BLAH
Will just pile more lies on top of previous lies.
It will be on ESPN?
NOPE, either the Travel channel or the golf channel
Presume you mean all the other hair is real.
“Mr Obama, have you given any thought at all about the 17 day separation that the USSS, Military and NSC staffers will endure from their families during your millions of dollar,taxpayer funded, Hawaiian vacation you are forcing on them for the 7th year in a row? Any thought at all? And a follow up, please. Have you even considered the disruption to the locals living there during the Holiday season? Or because you “won”, they just have to suck it up..?”
does he EVER shut up?!
