The Trump Press Conference: Words Cannot Describe It, Can They?
(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump gave a freewheeling news conference yesterday. At least, that’s one word for it.
The Washington Post agreed, though other online stories from the Post allowed that it was a “marathon” and “insane.”
The 80-minute media show was memorable by any journalistic measurement. The president discussed serious matters of state, from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s chances for confirmation to Nafta and the tariff war.
But Trump, clearly enjoying himself, also found time to throw shade on the father of his country, George Washington; speculate on China’s respect “for Donald Trump’s very, very large brain” and comment on the prowess of Kurdish militia fighters.
