trump kiss 1Finally, after approximately one year elapsed since his last official press conference, President-elect, Donald Trump faced the media and it was not pretty.  Lost in the conversation almost altogether was his plan to keep ownership of his massive international business while insulating him from potential conflicts of interests.

At the center of the ugliness surrounding the press conference was an inflammatory allegation that the Russians had sensitive information it could use against the President-in-waiting.

Hours later, during a Facebook Live discussion, WGSO radio talk show host Jeff Crouere and Bayoubuzz publisher Stephen Sabludowsky discussed the press conference fallout.  Crouere has been an ardent Trump supporter, a former delegate at the recent Republican convention.  Sabludowsky has said he preferred four other republican candidates over all other possible presidential candidates (both GOP and Democrat) but put Trump and Bernie Sanders at the bottom of the totem heap.

Below are summaries of comments by Crouere in this segment of the Facebook Live discussion:

The press conference was very confrontational especially with the CNN reporter (Jim Acosta) who was trying to get a question in after Trump called the network “Fake News”

It was not the same sort of feeling that you get during an Obama news conference which is more of a collegial a friendly atmosphere, this was more confrontational, and it appears this is the way it is going to be.  

I think he's got contempt for most of the media and I think he's found his own way to communicate with the American people through social media and I think that it sounds like that is where he is going to try to do most of his communicating

He's not going to be the type that’s going to back down and he's going to continue to give as good as it gets and that's what we saw today so it was sort of a circus overlooked with the big announcement about how he's defending himself from his business which I think was handled in a pretty thoughtful detailed way with the attorney I'm going up there and making all of those various announcements about what's going to be happening and any of the profits from any foreign government that it's going to be received as hotels and understanding to be donated to the United States Treasury and then of course all kinds of other safeguards so that was reassuring at least in my view and we also didn't get as much attention as I think we should have on the nominees

we had news outlets running with a story that was unsubstantiated it was false it included scandalous and inaccurate information that even the New York Times which is certainly not a Trump fan would not publish in many other news outlets refused to publish as well discredited.

  • A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
