The NYTimes has a transcript.
Stephen Colbert had some thoughts about it:
There were a few choice moments.
Like this one:
In response to a question Thursday about threats to Jewish centers nationwide, President Donald Trump called a Jewish reporter a liar, told him to sit down and later said anti-Semitism was coming from "the other side."And this one:
The exchange kicked off as Trump looked through the room at a White House news conference and asked for a question from a "friendly reporter."
Over the course of the lengthy and bizarre news conference that President Trump held Thursday, few moments crystallized the unusual nature of his presidency as effectively as an exchange he had at the end with April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks.And let's all remember his take on the reporting about this White House:
Ryan asked Trump if he would include the CBC in discussions about his agenda for addressing urban policy. The CBC, for those unaware, is the Congressional Black Caucus, a group of African American legislators that is often a leading voice on the Hill for issues dealing with the black community. Trump appeared briefly to be unaware of what the initials stood for, and so Ryan asked more pointedly.
“Am I going to include who?” he asked.
“Are you going to include the Congressional Black Caucus,” Ryan, who is black, asked, “and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus as well as …?”
“Well, I would,” Trump interrupted. “Tell you what, do you want to set up the meeting? Do you want to set up the meeting? Are they friends of yours? Set up a meeting.”
The leaks are real. The leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake because so much of the news is fake.I'll just leave it at that.
