press conference

Here is Nancy Pelosi dismissing a reporter from the Bill O’Reilly Television Zoo Crew, like a boss. “Bill O’Reilly has a quick question for you,” the reporter, who had camera filming his inquiry, began. “He ran into you at the Kennedy Center Honors recently and he said you said you would do an interview with […]

Caving to the incoherent spittle-filled demands of Republicans — especially Texas Rep. Steve Stockman — that Obama rewrite Obamacare but without rewriting Obamacare and take personal responsibility for personally writing bad code for the Obamacare websites, personally, the president held another at-home apology tour today, in which he used lots of awkward analogies (something about […]

Hey, Drudge and Weekly Standard, did anything happen during President Richard Milhouse Obama’s press conference with the Turkish premiere or prime minister or president or whatever? (We are not required to know who that guy is, because AMERICA.) Oh, nothing, he just CALLED OUT THE MARINES? Well that is one way to murder all of […]

The unseen fellow asking Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick whether the Boston Massacre was a “false flag” operation so TSA agents can “put their hands down [his] pants” is apparently Dan Bidondi, a “correspondent” for Alex Jones’s Infowars. Bully for them! Great job, fucking idiots! Because obviously the government did Boston so they can snatch everyone’s […]

President Barack Obama took to the podium in the White House press room to explain that it is not a good idea to shut down the government just because the president has only cut $2 trillion in spending (so far). This seems fair enough, if you are a communist. But the press corps was all […]

In a bizarre “press conference” that permitted no questions, National Rifle Association executive vice president Wayne LaPierre declined to offer the sort of small but sensible concession that many idiots like your Editrix expected in the wake of the Newtown massacre — offering to compromise on the gun show loophole for background checks, for instance, […]

Perhaps you have just watched John Boehner manage to stop himself from weeping through his press conference outlining where we go now, after yesterday’s ceremonial Shitting of the Bed. And you noticed (after of course noticing the ease with which he told fat lies like he was Mitt Romney in orangeface, again) that he mentioned […]

Earlier we brought you the BREAKING NEWS that Senator John McCain is a puckered old asshole, and also why he is full of poo. B. Barry Bamz responded to McCain’s typical slurring of UN Ambassador Susan Rice in his press conference today by going all HULK SMASH and practically challenging McCain and his partner in […]

So here is your video of Luke Russert being an ass to Nancy Pelosi at her press conference announcing she intends to continue as House Minority Leader. Because, surely there are some 24-year-olds who would be really good at Dem Leadering. Doesn’t that old lady know that Gen Y always thinks they get to be […]

So, you know how Willard Mittingston Wigglesworth Romney IV made a very important foreign policy statement about the murders of American diplomats in Libya, which kind of left even Republican foreign-policy experts gobsmacked at its tone-deaf injection of politics into a developing foreign crisis? Yeah, that thing. Well, now. Katrina Trinko at NRO’s “The Corner” […]

Well, Ol’ Barry Obama went out to the Rose Garden to speechify his new plan to kill all white children and let Mexican children have their homes, and then this guy, Neil Munro of Tucker Carlson’s treasured Daily Caller, interrupts him to start babbling something. Obama hates this person but responds anyway. Now people are […]

You guys, we are starting to worry about the Mitt Romney campaign. They seem to be getting a little paranoid, like they’ve maybe read one too many email forwards from Glenn Beck. The event was a double-secret press conference at the solar energy company Solyndra — “double-secret,” obviously, because if the President’s vast army of […]

Did the White House offer Joe Sestak an administration job in exchange for dropping his Senate primary run against Arlen Specter? Very simple yes/no question, “Yes” for “Yes we did,” and “No” for “No we didn’t.” Easy? Guess not. Some reporter (New York Times?) just asked Barack Obama, in a very clear and simple question, […]

Perhaps the best part of last night’s press conference (although there were so many!…??) was that Obama didn’t call on the Washington Post, perhaps because the Post reporter’s question about Alex Rodriguez’s fancy drugs at the last presser was a real toughy. He also didn’t call on the NYT, the WSJ, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, […]

This guy! Presumption Watch etc! Barack Obama has been holding press conferences pretty much nonstop since he was elected, what, 40 million years ago, and since then he has just blah blah blahed all over the press because he didn’t get enough love in his childhood. That is the only reasonable conclusion you can make […]
