Donald Trump Finally Gave the Press Conference that Every Republican Wanted to See

Angry Donald Trump
Written by Onan Coca

According to Rush Limbaugh, this past week Donald Trump finally gave the press conference that every Republican had been waiting to see. For months the media (and many veterans groups) had been wondering where all that money that Donald Trump had promised our veterans was. Over the last couple of weeks the questions had been growing louder and more direct, until finally the Trump campaign scheduled a press conference to answer the naysayers. What happened during the press conference will no doubt go down in political media history…

Here’s what the most famous voice in radio had to say about what we witnessed from Mr. Trump.

Well, that’s what you’ve all wanted. That’s what everybody’s been asking for I don’t know how long. That was a press conference. That was a press conference. That was the kind of press conference Republicans voters have been dying to see for who knows how many years.

Say what you will about Donald Trump — how many years have people been begging for a Republican to just once take on the media the way Trump did? All the way from the premise, to the details, to the motivation, he took ’em all on…

Near the end of it a frustrated journalist (paraphrasing), “Mr. Trump, Mr. Trump, Mr. Trump, is it gonna be this way, are you gonna be attacking us after you become president?”

“Yes, it is. Because you are the most dishonest people, political press the most dishonest people I know. You know it and I know it. The press is dishonest, but the political press is especially dishonest.”

And then Jim Acosta, I think it was, CNN (paraphrasing), “Mr. Trump, Mr. Trump, do you object to scrutiny? You seem like you didn’t even like scrutiny, but you’re seeking the office of president of the United States, how do you think –”

“I don’t mind scrutiny. What I don’t like is lies. You can scrutinize me all day long but you set up false premises. You state things about me that are not true. Then you run stories on that. That’s why I’m out here trying to correct the record.” And then Trump says, “By the way, I’ve seen you, you’re among the worst. You’re at ABC, right? You’re the worst. You’re a sleaze.”

Donald Trump’s comments begin at about 21 minutes into the video:
