    Like him or hate him, Trump is the master of media. The media thought that the speech today was to address the birther controversy. but was instead used to show off Trump's military endorsements.

    They were incredibly upset that they were forced into covering him fairly.

    It just shows what a coward he is. Turned tail and ran right after his remarks. Didn't answer questions at this so-called press conference.

    Yeah, and that's a big big blunder on Trump's part. Now that's all they are talking about and fact checking him all over the place making him look like the blatant liar that he is. Which they have done in short burst before. But now it is just one continuous stream. And he certainly will not get the black vote with this half hearted effort. Geez...he spent less time on this then the 49 seconds he spent offloading play-doh in Louisiana!

    Speaking of Trump's lies, did you ever watch that video from the other thread?

    The media were caught vandalising property at Trump Hotel after not getting the story they wanted.

    Looks like the mainstream media are joining the Clinton supporters with the rioting.

    Total blunder. If you aren't seeing how this issue fires up the black community, than you aren't looking closely enough. This kind of stuff motivates people. Total backfire. Unless the goal is to not actually win the job. After all, it does seem like everytime she has a bad week, he comes a long to grab the baton and make her look better.

    I vehemently (lol) disagree. It's a masterpiece in communication strategy.
    He forced the media to listen to 90 minutes of medal of honor recipients say that Trump is the next savior.
    He forced the media to show his new hotel.
    He removed the focus on HRC's resurrection (very important)
    He dodged a possible self inflicted wound by coming out on the birther thing (which could've blown up) without even saying anything. He even looks trustworthy, ready to "fix" a mistake.

    Black vote? Blacks are not going to vote for him because he's nice on the birther issue.

    No they didn't. I'd like to think you knew this and we're just joking. But I suspect you actually believe it. When this stuff gets taken down after an even it often falls apart. Hence the temporary nature of it. Sometimes this stuff falls apart even during the event!

    I agree. Although the media typically loves Clinton, it looks to me like this was just people breaking down the setup after the conclusion of the event.

    You can disagree all you want, but it's not factual.

    First, it was 20 minutes of speech, not 90.
    Secondly, I am not sure why you keep mentioning Hillary's resurrection. By putting the focus back on his false claims, this only makes her look better.
    Third, he didn't dodge a self inflicted wound at all...he ripped off the scab from his already longstanding self inflected wound, made himself look like a stupid liar, and is now bloody all over again.

    How can you say he looks trustworthy in the face of a self created lie? That doesn't even make sense. He just looks like a liar who makes up stories and refuses to apologize for them. Not very presidential. At all.

    So either you are joking or will you admit now that the media did no such thing as comments on your link actually say?

    Looks like the media isn't as stupid as Trump thinks they are.

    All they're talking about is how is how hew blew it with his birther comment while blaming Hillary. Not all press is good press, it's gone both ways for him. Hillary owned the cycle last weekend and look how well that worked out for her.

    Killary’s a pathetic, lying piece of **** who deserves to be in ADX Florence for the rest of her life. As for what Trump did, it was masterful. He bitch-slapped Hillary and the media. Hilarious.

    It was a joke, I'm aware the press didn't start rioting (I thought the Twitter replies would've made it obvious). It was a reference to the tendency of the press to pile on Trump. They might as well be rioting.

    What is in fact hilarious is the video you've just posted with reporters screaming, "Take some questions!" Where are these tremendous reporters when it comes to Hillary?

    No he didn't. To anyone with a brain in their head, he lied again, fled before answering questions, showing what a lying coward he really is. As for Trump supporters....

    Words like "Killary" really give your positions credibility, thanks for helping me to see your objective point of view.

    I could spell it with three k’s to be more accurate if you’d like.
    It was another political masterstroke. Team Killary in meltdown because Trump trumped them. Meanwhile, Killary is finished bitching on Twitter and now is off to Her Chappaqua home for more “pneumonia” rest.

    Shooting yourself in the foot can now be considered masterful? Interesting. Standards really are slipping.
