The Daily GOP ignominious: Trump Presser And CNN Fact Check

Image result for trump camp david presser today
We previously posted the following Trump Camp David presser. The previous post included the suggestion that Trump has gone almost one year without a press conference; why offer up such an event now? The Fire & Fury book and Trump's over the top obvious concern with its revelations.  So what did he do? He drug GOP leadership (with an exception of his Attorney General) on the stage and worked to refute passages in the book while defending a tweet in which he referred to himself as a "genius."

Our specific interest in posting the video is to draw your attention to the first 26 seconds of the presser.  Watch as Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell entered the picture. Does Paul Ryan seem excited and anxious to be on the stage?  He actually seems to signal his displeasure.  Ryan's non-verbals must have been intentional as people who attain his level of congressional leadership surely understand the nuances of oratory as well as non-verbal messaging.  

The full video is linked, here.  Again our primary interest is in the first 26 seconds.

As is always the case, Trump's presser was replete with lies and embellishment and included an outright red flag from Mitch McConnell. McConnell mentioned bi-partisanship in Congress going forward. Well, did the GOP offered an iota of bi-partisanship to Democrats in the Obama Years?  

Trump's presser was carefully crafted around his need to address issues form the Michael Wolff book. As we have come to live each week, lets sit for a CNN fact check of the presser.
