    Trump is giving a speech at a luncheon in DC right now and all the press was kicked out during the first few minutes. This guy is quite a piece of work. Cries (and lies) that the press covers him unfairly so he kicks them out of covering a speech. What a great president he is going be.

    Edit: apparently since Trump didn't say on camera that he wants the press out, the title of this thread needed to be changed. The press pooled was escorted out of the event by security after security told them to leave. Hmmmmm, I wonder who gave the order to let them in in the first place and then kick them out?

    That's not what I saw.

    While he was talking about DeVos, the pool camera was seen walking into a hallway/lobby, while streaming. Never heard him even mention the press.

    He didn't. But who did you think told security to get them out of there? You think they just decided to leave on their own?

    I'm sure the freedom of speech defenders who voted Trump will adjust their view though.

    Just watched it again on CNN and they walked out. I didn't see or hear any security tell them to leave.

    Was it all media or just CNN?

    It was a pool camera, one feed that all of the networks were using. CNN didn't mention them leaving or give a reason.

    Bluffing is wearing, knowing at any moment you could be exposed. It's the prospect of answering tough questions from knowlegible critics. It's scary as hell to perpetuate the myth of being knowlegible about world affairs or even at home issues.

    It's sad that more people are excited about the press corp getting the cold shoulder from Trump and not about the actual issues Trump has and has not addressed.

    Yay - the President-elect is giving the middle finger to the media. That doesn't mean crap to me compared to the serious issues already plaguing his Presidency and he hasn't even been sworn in.

    Talk about misplaced focus.

    Actually my concern is MSM not factually reporting the issues. Instead they spin/morph it making it basically useless as an informative source.

    This topic has been in many threads. I see many people excited about the press getting the middle finger. As if that's more important than any/everything else. Convince me that's not somewhat of a displaced focus on what's important right now.

    The guy wants to move the Press Room to INCREASE the amount of press. I think he has a problem with some of the media not all of the media.

    Did Trump kick the press out of a speech or not?
