That’s Entertainment! Trump’s 75-Minute Tour de Force

Donald Trump, giving press conferences as president, is like a cross between Fidel Castro’s long-windedness and machismo and Christopher Walken’s theatrical presence — and nobody else in the room can compete with that.

This was on display Thursday, when after a week’s worth of his administration being buffeted by a hurricane of negative media coverage — some of it deserved, some much less so — the president turned himself loose in the East Room.

An hour and 15 minutes later, he walked out of what could be described as a smoldering ruin.

    even cynical old campainers agree that trump has made press conferances gold for ratings. and every time his approval jumps several points, I get a kick out of spotting Much Musics alumni JD roberts now pretending to be a dignified member of the press corps, He is basicly unskilled and really not due any recognition other than that given a craven survivor . none of the others have any more claim to respect and both they and Trump know it. Great TV.
