It is no secret Donald Trump has had a rather fraught relationship with the press. Sometimes it takes him a while to settle on which lie he’s going with, but in the meantime, the press goes and reports on lies Trump or his press secretary told earlier — or something his staff thought they’d agreed was the official lie. But in his own mind, he’d already moved on from that earlier lie, so Trump gets mad that nobody’s keeping up. Thus, on Friday, he took to Twitter and hinted he might rid himself of those troublesome press briefings entirely:

He doubled down on this later in the day in an interview on Fox, reports The New York Times:

The firestorm touched off by the Comey firing has only reinforced the lesson Mr. Trump has usually taken away from past crises, that only one person was truly capable of defending him: the man in the mirror. It would be a “good idea” to end the daily news briefing, he told a Fox News host on Friday, suggesting that he was considering hosting his own news conferences every two weeks or so.

This is, of course, a completely horrifying idea. As we all know, one of the first priorities of all terrible dictators is controlling the press.

Guess who thinks this is actually a FABULOUS idea? Newt Gingrich! You know, the guy who also thinks child labor is a swell idea. He is so excited about it that he practically erupted into a gigglefit on Hannity last night, just thinking about it:

Gingrich even has an idea for what they should do instead. Rather than taking questions from seasoned reporters well-versed in the topics of the day, they could solicit questions from everyday Americans, then just pick the five best ones to answer. That way, instead of being directly questioned on things like the reasoning behind the Comey firing, they can field questions like these!

“Isn’t it great how Donald Trump is so super great?”
“How does Donald Trump stay so good looking?”
“What is Donald’s secret to having such big hands?”
“How does President Trump deal with the stress of a fake news media that is SO UNFAIR to him? Bubble baths?”

The really sad thing here is that Trump would probably end up giving incredibly stupid answers to those questions as well:

How would you say you’ve made America Greater this week?

You know, nobody thought I could win. But I won a huge victory in the electoral college. You can’t trust anything the lying media say. Russia is a ruse. It’s a ruse. And did you see what a crybaby Chuck Schumer is? What a phony!

But Newt and Hannity are very excited about the prospect of Donald Trump ending all White House Press Briefings — giving all those mean journalists just what they deserve for being so mean to poor Donald Trump! Ha! They will be so sorry they did not write more stories about how Trump is the most handsome and manly man in the world now! Or use their psychic powers to guess what story he was going to settle on three days before he settled on it! Why should they have to hang with people who “despise” them anyway? UNFAIR!

Gingrich also suggested — because he is so generous of heart — that he and Hannity could offer to pay for coffee and donuts at Starbucks for the journalists who, L-O-L, will now be sad and unemployed.

Even Gingrich admitted to the New York Times that it’s basically impossible for anyone to conduct Donald Trump’s press briefings because Trump doesn’t tell anyone what is going on:

The president, said Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker, “resembles a quarterback who doesn’t call a huddle and gets ahead of his offensive line so nobody can block him and defend him because nobody knows what the play is.”

If Trump’s own team has no idea what it is he is doing, how the hell is the press supposed to know? It seems like what Team Trump wants is for the press to just independently come up with excuses and explanations for Trump’s actions and tweets that show him in the most positive and complimentary light possible. Which is not exactly their job.

    The best thing the media could do is simply stop covering or mentioning Lil’Donnie. It would drive him absolutely insane like a small child who needs to be the center of attention.

    • TundraGrifter

      Precisely! He needs ink like human beings need oxygen.

      • Celtic_Gnome

        They could just interview everyone else in Washington about what Donnie says and does and then not give him a forum to answer their responses. His head would explode.

  • TJ Barke

    I’m sick of these motherfucking fascists on this motherfucking America!

  • DainBramage

    Gingrich’s analogy of Trump as a quarterback sounds a young QB who comes into the NFL, gets blasted with injuries and is soon scrambling to get a backup job.

    • Chadwells

      He would be a Manzel type asshole in the NFL….

      If Newt understood how a legitimate government worked, he’d be a dangerous man. At least there’s still some restraint in place, granted, it’s the restraint of stupidity, but it’s still a restraint.

  • Swampay

    I wonder if Trump’s ever considered having actual strategies that don’t change from minute to minute depending on how long it’s been since he was burped? You know, instead of reacting to every little thing like a toddler?

    • Celtic_Gnome

      I saw an article that described him as a reaction engine. There are no plans, no long game, no strategies, just Donnie reacting to the moment with no way to predict how he’ll react to the next moment.

    In Donald Trump’s America, the mere act of reporting news unflattering to the president is held up as evidence of bias, as “fake news.” The media and journalists are slandered as “enemies of the people.”

    OK – I’m bringing this up again. Back in the days when dinosaurs ruled the earth – 2008 – Ole Newt slithered into NYC to kiss Mr. Trump’s ring (or something lower). After their Trump Tower gettogether, they announced a special “Inner City” version of The Apprentice to benefit kids who haven’t gotten a fair shake in life.

    Do you remember all the good work that program has done?

    Is he some kind of vampire or something? I mean he was supposed to be on the trash heap after the failed Contract With America bullshit. We was supposed to be toast after the failed impeachment of Bill Clinton. He was supposed to be finished after it came to light he was a serial cheater and resigned in disgrace as the Speaker of the House. He has failed at Presidential bids and moon colonies. He has failed at policy ideas and making the poor children be school janitors if they want lunch. He is a never ending stream of fail and here he is again with more fake ass ideas and the best defense of DJT he can come up with is the man is like a QB who doesn’t understand how the game is played and will lose the game. WTF?

      They like the feeling of being part of the special group that’s in on the secret no one else knows or will believe, like every one of them is the star of their own personal X-Files: The Redneck Years.

If an Infowars prediction doesn’t pan out, it’s just more evidence of the conspiracy.

      • willi0000000

  • Bill D. Burger

  • Chadwells

    Now Comey says he’ll testify but only in public. I don’t see the logic in that….but he definitely seems to have a plan.

    • TundraGrifter

      Because he knows if he testifies in private the Republicans will do what they always do and selectively leak what he said to make his look as bad as possible.

      There’s absolutely one thing the Trump Administration can’t stand – the bright sunshine of full disclosure. They go for that like a little boy getting his face washed.

      • Chadwells

        By that logic, are you saying Comey is in cahoots with Fuckface?

        Dampnut does NOT want him to testify in closed session. He would prefer public because Comey can’t comment. I’m sure Comey is looking for a little get back, because of they way Dampnut did him dirty.

        • Celtic_Gnome

          I thought he was trying to force them to subpoena him to get around any confidentiality bullshit Trump would try to pull.

          • Chadwells

            That’s what I thought too….there seems to be less Vic to this move.

        • TundraGrifter

          No, I don’t think Comey is dirty. I think he is clean. Completely self-righteous and therefore a serious danger, of course. But clean.

          But the selective leaks the Republicans specialize in can make anybody look bad.

          I’m mildly amused by the right wing nutz claiming Comey was in the tank for Sec. Clinton. They can’t explain (at least in a rational manner) why he discussed prior to the election the investigation into her affairs but not the one into Mr. Trump’s. It would have made all the sense in the world to state they both were being looked into.

          Unless – and this is a big unless – there is so much preliminary evidence against Mr. Trump and his assorted minions and lickspittles that Mr. Comey didn’t want to derail it by discussing it.

          • puredog

            He was in the tank for Clinton because he said “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring charges against her. Coupled with Lynch’s announcement that she planned to follow the FBI recommendation, that meant that they wouldn’t lock her up, ergo, they were in the tank for her.

          • TundraGrifter

            Err go.

            However this goes…i can’t wait to watch!

          • NellCote71

            This. Last paragraph.

    • Wellstone En Resistencia, Coño

      Comey wants to protect himself by doing so. He wants to leave zero chances of being quoted out of context and to have his testimony manipulated in any way. I predict he’s going to be very chatty when he testifies. It seems he’s got nothing to lose at this point.

      • Chadwells

        I don’t think he can reveal much in open testimony! Just because he’s fired doesn’t mean he can just say whatever he wants.

        • Resistance Fighter Astraea

          Josh Marshall posted about what he can actually say. He still can’t share anything classified, but as a now private citizen anything else is apparently fair game.

        • Thaumaturgist

          There’s lines and there’s between lines. He can’t give details but wheneve he says he can’t answer a question, he’s basically answered the question.

          • Chadwells

            Ahhh…optics and such?

          • ziggywiggy

            Yep like when trump answered that it’s not unethical for him to ask if he’s being investigated, and then he says but I didn’t ask. Maybe it would have been a teeny weeny bit believable if he’d put those 2 things in reverse order.

      • Resistance Fighter Astraea

        He still has his reputation and self-image as a man of integrity, which seem to be very important to him according to people who know him.

        • Wellstone En Resistencia, Coño

          My point right there.

          • Resistance Fighter Astraea

            Yeah, I do agree that’s probably why he wants to speak publicly.

          • Chadwells

            In protecting his reputation…I would think he might want some payback for being disrespected as he was.

          • Chadwells

            And I would think it would be far easier to shut Dampnut down in closed testimony rather than open where he can’t say much.

          • Wellstone En Resistencia, Coño

            That’s a strong possibility. He may not be able to disclose classified information but there are ways to disclose metadata related to classified information and still be within the boundaries of disclosure. It has happened before and Comey being a career intelligence man surely knows how to do that.

          • Chadwells

            Ok. I’m starting to see the logic. He can infer a lot, protect his rep by hearing it from him and not being misquoted and the can keep himself at arms length. Masterful!

          • Wellstone En Resistencia, Coño

            Yup. It’s called controlling the narrative and, with that, his own fate.

          • Chadwells

            Say what you want about the man, but he has characteristics to be respected.

          • Zippy W Pinhead

            Plus, there’s nothing stopping him from testifying in a closed hearing afterwards

    • Zippy W Pinhead

      I do- he wants the world to hear what he says, as opposed to having it filtered and spun by the various parties involved

      • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

        I agree with you on this. If it’s done out in the open and streamed, it will hit a global audience. It will be an open testimony, easily viewed by all and unable to be taken out of context.

        • DrBigHead

          Oh, it will still be taken out of context.

          • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

            Of course it will. I was personally told I did not see things I absolutely saw happen live, by people excusing this administration and my own nature compels me to question what I see and hear. So, yeah, they’ll say he didn’t say things he did say and that he said things he absolutely did not really say.

          • Mehmeisterjr

            Yeah, but it will tougher, especially as leaks bear out what he says.

            Hint: Trump is not as smart as he thinks he is.

          • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

            It doesn’t matter that he’s dumb as a bag of dildos, it’s that his followers think he’s smart. There will be people, two decades from now, who will still swear by him no matter the nature of his eventual fall. Like how some people think “Nixonian” is a compliment and that Reagan made the Brandenburg gate fall by the power of his canned speech.

  • Bill D. Burger
  • Chadwells

    Or maybe he is try trying to cover his ass and stay out of it. Very strange.

  • TundraGrifter

    I just learned this. I’m not surprised, of course, but it was still news to me:

    “After a disappointing second place showing in the Delaware primary on April 24, and with a campaign debt in excess of $4 million,[163] Gingrich suspended his campaign and endorsed front-runner Mitt Romney on May 2, 2012,[164] on whose behalf he subsequently campaigned (i.e. stump speeches and television appearances).[citation needed]

    “Gingrich later hosted a number of policy workshops at the GOP Convention in Tampa presented by the National Republican Committee called ‘Newt University’.[165] He and his wife Calista addressed the convention on its final day with a Ronald Reagan-themed introduction.[citation needed]

    “In 2016, Newt Gingrich filed a debt settlement plan document with the Federal Election Commission indicating his 2012 presidential campaign would pay zero dollars toward the more than $4.6 million in unpaid debts owed to 114 businesses and consultants.[166]”

          Thorazine’s nice for a shuffle, Zoloft gives you dry mouth, so no slobber. Depakote, maybe, for drooling more.

          • Unmutual Tetsu Kaba

            Most antipsychotics (thorazine, haldol, etc.) can cause drooling.

          • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

            I guess they can. I didn’t get drooling from thorazine, just the shuffles, twitching and stuttering. I was just listing off the things I have actually been on.

    The only positive thing about Assmouth is that he’s a failed grifter magnet of the first degree. A sensible society would pluck him out of the White House along with every remora from Newt to Spicer to his entire cabinet and drop him on St. Helena (with apologies to the people already living there) and be done with them.

  • Stephen Dare

    Newt Gingrich is like a relapsing cow pox virus in an oncology ward. Still trying to cause harm, despite bigger cancers to worry about.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      You flatter Newtie. He is far worse than cow pox virus but I upcaret it anyway as a step in the right direction.

  • chascates

    Short of invoking the 25th Amendment it would take 51% of the House to impeach a President. To actually remove him from office would take 75% of the Senate to vote to convict him. Unless someone can hack into his communications and/or business records this will take the Democrats taking back control of the House and make significant gains in the Senate.
    Invoking the 25th Amendment would take the Vice-President and 8 of the 15 cabinet secretaries signing a statement that the President is unable to discharge his duties. Which is unlikely to happen. After which the President could fight back which would require the House to decide the matter, in a maximum of 3 weeks. The House would have the authority to appoint a board of experts to decide the matter, whether medical professionals, ex-Presidents, or whatever.

    Start volunteering if you can and contribute money when you can. WE have to take action before Trump can be removed!!!!

    • HorseChestnut

        I believe the 75% was specifically so that it would be harder to actually remove a sitting President.

  • Zippy W Pinhead

    Sure, do the one thing guaranteed to piss off the villagers- cut off their access and make them have to actually work for their stories.

    Sounds like a real winner of a plan, Donnie. It worked so well with the FBI…

  • TheGrandWazoo2

          • Mehmeisterjr

            And yet it makes sense when applied to his future career.

        • nightmoth

          THAT’S the quote he chose for his yearbook? Makes me feel slightly sorry for him. If only he had met some fun nerds who could have turned him onto Star Trek or Monty Python or something. Or just turned him on.

    [Trump Warning to Comey Prompts Questions on ‘Tapes’

    By PETER BAKER and MICHAEL D. SHEARMAY 12, 2017
    Comey declined an invitation from the Senate Intelligence Committee to be interviewed in a closed-door hearing next Tuesday, according to Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the ranking Democrat on that panel.

    But a “close associate” of Comey’s told the Times he is willing to speak as long as he can do so in an open hearing.]

        All out in the open, recorded, and publicly available. There will be no “interpretation” of what Mr Comey says. Good for him.

        • GHERKINS OF RESTIVENESS!

          But just like with Clapper the other day, he still won’t be able to disclose anything classified, even if he’s just a mere civilian now.

          But at least we all get to see the sausage being made, which is a win.

          • JustDon’tSayFlatEarth

            My thought as well. Instead of telling what he knows, it’ll be all “it’s classified.”
            This might turn out to be a fucking puppet show.

    Quick! Someone write a bipartisan bill making it mandatory that the people be well informed of what is going on inside our White House and the dealings of the First Employee, a.k.a. our President (or, in this case, our Personator-in-Chief). It will undoubtedly be vetoed, so we can look forward to another anomaly of this administration: a veto override limiting Presidential power and increasing oversight of the Executive branch. If this administration accomplishes nothing else, it will be to expose and unintentionally help plug, weaknesses in the democratic processes of our democratic republic.

    I watched part of Trump’s commencement speech to Liberty (fake) University, today. He was blathering about how awful the critics are. According to him, the most pathetic thing you can be is a critic. His idiot admirers are too stupid to realize that Dump spends most of his day criticizing other people. Today he criticized critics. Jesus Christ on a Jetski, these people are stupid.

    • efoveks

      It’s the “I’m rubber, you’re glue” worldview usually adopted by those leading an unexamined life. They project, they fail to see that the persons they best describe are themselves. OTOH, it provides the rest of us with insight as to how these people think.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

  • Bub, Zombie of the Resistance

    Do you know what you would call:

    a quarterback who doesn’t call a huddle and gets ahead of his offensive line so nobody can block him and defend him because nobody knows what the play is?”

    You would call him a loser. Also, dead or badly injured. Quarterbacks who try to improvise and work on the fly without their teammates blocking, running and catching for them – without even knowing what the play is – quickly end up being carried off the field on a stretcher. This goddamn brain dead, grifting, worthless fucking greaseball could hardly have come up with a worse metaphor if he had set out to come up with one – at least, one that was meant to show how clever and unpredictable he thinks Donnie is by keeping everybody off balance.

    On the other hand, if you wanted to illustrate how Donnie’s lack of communication and coordination with his own administration is completely hamstringing their ability to do their jobs and actually, competently run the fucking country, the metaphor works rather well. Pretty sure that isn’t what the malevolent, bipedal spawn of a Chester White Hog and Pillsbury’s “Poppin’ Fresh” had in mind though…

          I am far from an expert sportsball guy but Newtie’s sideline analysis suggests that all he knows about quarterbacking or football in general in confined to his current temporary wife’s helmet hair.

    • Lamashtar

      I agree. Acting like secretaries taking dictation is pointless. Cancel those briefings! It would mean those journalists would actually start doing investigating and talking to people.

      (It is absurd to me that there is no papparazzi taking pictures of who goes into the White House. The Russians took a side door to avoid press the other day, and the White House did NOT inform us that Kislyak was going to be there, so the ONLY reason we know is because the Russians trolled us by posting their own pictures, which showed OH YEAH secret Kislyak visit.)

      Also, not having talking heads defending Trump’s viewpoint actually works in the public favor. It slows saturation down, which gives more time to push back the nonsense.

            Ever hear the term ‘divide and conquer’? Cut the shit already.

          • Serai 1

            Clutching their balls at the idea of a woman president.

          • HooverVilles

            Exactly, where were the ~ 90,000,000 people who did not vote?
            Grrrrr. Sigh.

        • Biel_ze_Bubba

          I wonder if they know they can do something about that.

  • norcalOG

    The Pillsbury Doughboy is once again grasping for relevancy. Can’t wait till he veers into discussions of family values.

    • Qntino773

      Oh, he will and with his signature condescending self-righteousness. If our worthless media did its job as journalists, the hypocrite newt would be laughed off of the national stage.

  • Carpe Vagenda

    ? It seems like what Team Trump wants is for the press to just independently come up with excuses and explanations for Trump’s actions and tweets that show him in the most positive and complimentary light possible. Which is not exactly their job.

    Has someone told Dean Baquet?

    “What Team Trump wants is for the press to just independently
    come up with excuses and explanations for Trump’s actions and tweets

    So, Fox “News”? Their walking, talking turd Sean Hannity is on top of it.

    And just when you start to wonder how much worse this absolute shitstorm of a Presidency can get.

    This timely article from Politico reminds us that, ruling out the self inflicted crises that Trump has created, so far there have been no major external or domestic events that have actually required a calm and strategic response and measured diplomatic attempts to gain support from other countries who quite frankly in the future will have no reason to trust anything this fuckwad says.

    It is becoming more terrifying by the day to imagine just how this clown will actually deal with an actual crisis such as a major terrorist attack or a similar international crisis.

      Maybe there have been major crises, but they are obscured by the kakiocracy.

    • TheBoatDude

      He’ll use nukes, first. Then he’ll install a tariff on an uninvolved country. Then he’ll ban people with the wrong color hair…

      • glennisw

        And that will be his response to a natural disaster. How about a foreign policy crisis?

        • TheBoatDude

          He’ll ban climate scientists…

  • CeeQ

    These people. Ugh. Trump can’t fathom that he is the actually problem. He won’t STFU so shit keeps exploding.

    And Gingrich?? Omg please. This bitch would run over small children every hour if he thought anyone would pay him for it. Fuck him.

    Keep going Donald. Shut out the press. I’m SO SURE they won’t band together and have endless headlines about how your WH is tearing down free speech, free press and are a treasonous danger to the Republic. Keep picking fights with people who know where the bodies are buried AND people who buy ink by the barrel. It’s fine. It’s totally fine.

      They are already getting most of their stories from leaks anyway. His press conferences are staged Lie Festivals, so it’s not like the press would lose anything.

  • CATMAN

    Gee, Donny, how long did it take you to come up with the idea that it is much easier to lie in print than in a face to face press opportunity

  • Paperless Tiger

    He said write.

  • Incoming Ham

    If he locks them out they should just make up their own stories. They wont be any more ludicrous than what he spits out.

    • 🛶🗣️ Mr Canoehead 🛶🗣️

      or, y’know, journalism

      • Incoming Ham

        Crazy talk.

    What’s with the ovoid sportball fixation? The fat bastards did it at Liberty U and now Newt. I mean is freakin 6 months to football season.

    • Serai 1

      Ball-clutching little toddlers enamored of war. Of COURSE they’re gonna love football.

  • Tj McGee Wright

    “Perfect accuracy”
    Is this another one of those alternative facts I keep hearing about?

  • Tj McGee Wright

    I’m not much of a sports-guy, but I can certainly picture that image of Team Trump running around the pitch, chaotically every which way, screaming at one and other about the pigskin being on the payroll of the fake media, losing spectacularly and calling it winning.

  • Scooby

    Hey, I’m inaccurate when I’m golfing also.

  • JParkerSD46

    Dear Gnewt: please never use another sports analogy ever again. Ever!, you pasty old ball-sack.

    • anonotwit

      Come on! That’s actually a pretty good analogy. This is more or less what I picture when I think of the Trump administration:

      I looked for a version with neo-nazis in there, but the Internet has yet to provide one.

  • Stulexington

    They really don’t understand what the press briefings are for do they. They allow the administration to get their side of the story, any story out first. Without them the press corps is free and encouraged to do actual journalism instead of give them the benefit of the doubt. Not that there’s much doubt left with this lot.

    They may be rusty from the mutually beneficial relationship but the rust seems to be falling away quickly.

  • Iron Monkey

    Dear Wonkette:

    If you will stop covering anything said or done by Newt Gingrich forever I will give you one million billion gold Ameros.

  • Jeff Mc Donald

    What makes people in a free society think their right to be informed is more important than the President’s feelings? So selfish!

  • motmelere

    I guess we’ll just have to get our POTUS news the Reuters way.

  • phoenix00

    Note to Newt: the quarterbacks that DON’T call huddles? Those are bad quarterbacks on losing teams!

    • mtn_socialist

      So the Grinch is saying that Trump is ineffective and incompetent? I could get behind that.

      • phoenix00

        Inadvertently….. but you know what they say about stopped clocks.

  • IndianaKevin

    Very interesting was Hannity’s lack of objection to the newt’s assertion, “We’re against their profession.

    • TheBoatDude

      Well, it’s not like Hannity is a journalist…

  • mancityRed6

    “resembles a quarterback who doesn’t call a huddle and gets ahead of his offensive line so nobody can block him and defend him because nobody knows what the play is.”
    Gingrich really does not know his sportsball at all.

  • Bitter Scribe

    Rather than taking questions from seasoned reporters well-versed in the topics of the day, they could solicit questions from everyday Americans, then just pick the five best ones to answer.

    This is right out of the Richard Nixon 1968 campaign playbook, when he conducted a series of Q&As with “ordinary Americans” instead of reporters:

    Nixon could appear to risk all by going live while in fact risking nothing by facing the loose syntax and predictable, sloppy thrusts of amateurs.

    –Joe McGinniss, “The Selling of the President 1968”

  • Panika MCD

    please let them do this with a poll. we would all be checking “Other” and adding “can we see the tax returns?” or “why are you such a butt boy for Vladimir Putin?” every once in a while we could all agree to ask about the rotten cotten candy thing on his head just for giggles. I mean, do they really think it’s only journalists who care about this stuff? have they not watched the town halls?

  • Jared James

    The Trump Train is literally trying to lay down some track, somewhere, while the Little Engine That Couldn’t wanders off to see if it can try and fuck an ice cream truck.

  • I agree with Trump.

    It’s not possible for his surrogates to stand up and speak with 100% accuracy…

    Because Trump just makes shit up every time he speaks!
