  • Why hold press briefings when nothing that is said in them means anything? Just lies and deflections. And no sooner than the meetings are adjourned, anything resembling policy is going to reversed

  • Ohh, poisonous snakes are not in danger of extinction.
    And if they were, I would not mind.
    I don't like snakes.

  • The white House press briefing isn't necessary when the president talks to the press every time he exits Marine 1 for 20 minutes or more. Obama just waved and yelled a couple words.

    Trump didn't want to talk to Mueller because he didn't want us to know what he would have been forced to admit.

  • I would compare a Trump supporter to a diehard baseball fans loyalty to a losing franchise

    Neither would change their loyalty come hell or high water

  • Yes, democracy dies in darkness, but so do political parties.

     Beauty is truth, truth beauty, that is all Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know. 

    Good luck with the hideous freaks and lying skanks who make up the NAZI/REPUBLICAN PARTY.

  • Does Trump need a golf caddy?, he doesn't seem to need a White House press secretary after Sarah Sanders quit at the end of June 2019

  • No more press briefing ? So, they don't wanna talk to us ? Good ! I never want to talk TO THEM. They never answered questions anyway.

  • It became a repetitious show with media people who hate Trump trying to get their attacks in. It has dwindled away for that reason.

  • No worries, thousands of species have gone forever in the last twenty years. I'm an outdoorsman, and I can tell you, the majority of insect life is already gone. That has meant far fewer birds. Fewer small animals that eat a lot of insects. But if we didn't have such corrupt, kleptocratic governments, filled with people who are obviously suicidal, someone would be trying to find out what happened to these creatures, and how long the rest of us creatures have left .

  • U Libs can only kick this dog so much, the dog(DJT) will not bite you…What he will do & has done is piss all over your legs.
    For this you can thank Acosta et al.

  • The fake news has been making up stories for years. That will continue up until the extinction of the human race.

  • Who needs a press briefing with a press secretary when you have Trump speaking directly to the media all the time and holding his own press conferences? Just check the White House YouTube channel, WashPost…

  • A question: Why is it that none of the reporters that compose the White House's media members,DO NOT just ask what is important or just vent their frustration of this government out loud??!!! I know. It is in fear of losing their jobs and possibly their careers. SHAMEFUL! Media and national televised news networks, should base their reporting based on facts,the truth and NOT based on ratings or shock value based news!! Believe me, the truth will set you free and I know, at the beginning it will be horrible and very tough however, eventually whoever takes this course, they WILL become the main, most important and believable news Network in the country or perhaps, the world!! Because they are not beholden to any other lobbying group's agenda but their own and the true nature of this country!!! DEMOCRACY!

  • The weakest this government has ever been no people in current held positions long enough to get work done for the American people. Corporate greed is in office now,lobbyist in control.

  • You forgot another reason a species can become endangered: An inability to adapt or evolve.

    The press as a whole aren’t being inhibited from reporting, questioning, etc. Independent media is thriving just fine, so fine in fact the Trump administration tends to place those reporters in front of everyone else.

    Cable news however is noticeably declining in power. They refuse to evolve away from their own political bias and scripted system of communication. Their tactics fail against this new world predator (Trump) who can see through their bullshit and cut it off before it even begins. Unless their species learns how to actually be non-biased in their approach, use critical thinking skills and communicate intelligibly they will all perish.

  • It's stupid videos like this that renews my support for Trump and Republicans.
    Do you really have no idea why Trump would be unhappy with the biased media?
    Try easing up on the soy, boy!!

  • Lmmfao, put faf news media on the endangered species list! America is rejecting you Nazi propaganda machines, don't you clueless journalist wannabes even get it

  • when all the msm can do is lie and play the role of left wing propaganda machines they should become an endangered species, wp, cnn, msnbc, should be at the top of the list.

  • Journalism is dead. Everyone is bias. That's why you see all these news youtubers popping up and getting more views than CNN, CNBC, fox etc.

  • Press Corps brought it on themselves. They don't deserve to have the briefing room. They can continue to get their info from Trump when he stops to talk to them when he getting ready to leave. They are a tiny bit more civil when they have to do that. You reap what you sow, they are getting what they deserve.

  • The briefings by the Marine One on the lawn are much better anyway. I want to hear from the President. Not a middleman.

  • Trump kicks out a press brief nearly every day.
    I like it.
    I hated the other format.
    All those reporters did was grand stand..

  • Remember all those press statements Obama gave? Neither do I… But I do remember him always talking about how transparent he was and the press agreeing.

  • Listen to these comments. Wow! Like liberals only have ever put Trumps’ nose to the grindstone. EVERY President has had to go through this with a free press! Except orange,racist, misogynistic little girls who are always crying that their pigtails are being pulled too hard. He’s so tough, right? But always crying that he’s been wronged, the little hitch.

  • Washington Post trying to be "The Onion". Except you peal back their layers and you cry from disappointment, not humor.

  • Trump pulls the chain and you flush. I doubt you will ever figure it out.
    Not that the truth matters to you anymore.

  • WH Briefings make you lose your mind… How many reporters can ask the same exact question?…literally the same question… after the 3rd time I wanna yell at the TV. I remember when News told you facts and not someones opinion… The good Old Days… just a few years ago…

  • Journalist have a complex and they believe that their 'opinion' should be heard, and they actually think people want to hear it. NO we really do not want your biased opinion, I am human give me facts and I will make up my own biased view..Thanks… and they wonder why the White House don't want to hear the stupid sh*t they spew…. I like to watch the WH briefings, then the next day I read the WP and I'm like was this guy at a different white house? What happened to the other half of the story, the real part and not this guy's opinion??

  • The WP should leave 6 Blank Pages so we can use it for Toilet Paper so that we get our money's worth. We want news, not your sh*t opinion… What is wrong with journalists…jezzz

  • These comments have a metallic sound as Putin's bots come down hard on Enemies of People, so designed before in the Third Reich, in the Stalinist terror, in Mao's Cultural Revolution, and pretty much by every dictator… and would-be Mussolini.

    The Founders (ancient communists in your book) had a different view of the press – which hounded them mercilessly. Trump, Putin, and Kim would be horrified by Jefferson if they ever bothered to read him:

    "The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them." –Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, 1787. ME 6:57

  • Hitler got rid of the journalists and made his own news…for the past 2 years it has been nothing but trump and his goonyness…so what do you expect? He hates them and they hate him.

  • Just put the Washington Post on the endangered species list if truth was are for them to breathe they're strangling their selves and then complaining that they can't breathe and how it's everybody else's fault. Who cares

  • It hasn't really sunk in yet: The entire United States should be on the endangered list – because of Trump. Russia's goal of destroying democracy in America is being fulfilled by Trump and the Republican enablers/supporters. You think it's bad now, just wait. As long as people (and the media) are in denial about Trump's intrinsic threat to national security, things will continue to get worse. You haven't seen anything yet.

  • Sadly the media is loud and vulgar and constantly ask the same question no one in America gives a rat rear about. How about hiring some journalist instead of Democrat operatives.

  • The Trump administration was correct for stopping daily press briefings when we consider the dishonest and bad behavior of the press a behavior that they never engaged in with the Obama administration. Because the mainstream media has a liberal bias and does not like President Trump it is now open season to attack and be unfair so now there will be no more daily press briefings and this is justifiably the right decision made by the Trump administration😑

  • QUIT CRYING…. you dont need a press briefing to show off your stupidity and your hate for Trump… YOU ARE FAKE NEWS.,.. if you would report the truth (Like there is no Russia connection all the DEMS tried to take down Trump) you would still have your briefings… GET A CLUE
