So, that was...something. In today's press conference, Trump defended his less-than-monthlong tenure as POTUS which has been marked by chaos, legal fights, drama over cabinet appointees, and the firing of his national security adviser as nothing less than stellar. He also announced that there will be a new executive order on immigration next week and an Obamacare replacement in March. But he spent most of the spontaneous presser attacking the press. Viciously. A lot. He originally called the press conference to announce his new labor-secretary pick Alexander Acosta, after fast-food executive Andrew Puzder withdrew yesterday. But it quickly devolved into insults lobbed at Hillary Clinton, whom he is no longer running against, and at the press. He made statements like: "Story after story after story is bad. I WON!" He insulted individual news organizations, like the BBC. He stated his preference for "good" (softball) questions over "bad" (informed) ones. He called any mention of the administration's connection to Russia a "ruse." Our heads are spinning, but we're actually more thankful than ever that we went to journalism school. And we're not alone many celebrities and influencers took to Twitter to express their WTF just happened?! feelings.
