Unreal Moments from President Trump's Most Bizarre Press Conference Yet

"The leaks are absolutely real, but the news is fake because so much of the news is fake", the President was heard saying. He tapes at 6:30pm ET, which can sometimes work to his advantage, but with the Trump administration, it also means that what he has planned might already be outdated by the time he goes to tape.

Trump put forward that his 306 electoral college votes was the "biggest electoral college win since Ronald Reagan". Conway was behind the fake "Bowling Green Massacre" story, a fake terrorist attack that she used to justify Trump's travel ban. And I can tell you, one thing about a briefing that we're allowed to say, because anybody that ever read the most basic book can say it, nuclear holocaust would be like no other. "I love this. I'm having a good time". Number one, I am the least anti-Semitic person that you have seen in your entire life.

But before the U.S. courts blocked it, the travel ban triggered chaotic scenes at airports and mass protests across the country. "And if there's anything good in this it's been watching Trump develop techniques to avoid questions about that Russian contact".

"I'm just a reporter", she told him.


He also referred to Trump's obsession with getting friendly questions and responding childishly when given anything tougher. He said he's not ranting and raving, but again, what president hasn't had to say, 'I'm not ranting and raving?' Who can forget Lincoln's tirade at Gettysburg?

At a short joint press conference during Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit, the president only took two questions.

I'm sitting here at the Paradise Bakery & Cafe at Tatum Boulevard and Shea in Phoenix - a gentle breeze with sun heading out far west toward a new day somewhere, and it's 73 degrees, and with all the rain we've received, the hills are beginning to green unlike I've seen them do since the late 1990's. I'm just telling you.

"Oh, you're a black woman, can you talk to the Congressional Black Caucus?". You know what uranium is, right?


Meyers tore into Trump for almost 10 minutes, taking great umbrage with numerous statements the president made.

After Andrew Puzder rescinded his name for secretary of labor, Fallon said: "We just named our new secretary of labor: Beyoncé". You're like somebody who wants a birthday month. And the other thing, chaos because zero chaos. He doesn't have the media with him like Obama did. "We inherited a mess, such a mess", he said.

Trump as Trump is the strongest chess tactic he has with which to make real change against a vast Establishment that doesn't want change.

When a journalist pointed out that this was inaccurate, he replied, half-stammering, "I don't know, I was given that information".
