1. Welcome to today's White House daily #shadowbriefing. Let me first start by acknowledging the crafty work by the Trump campaign in Friday's briefing. In the unroll app, the campaign bought an ad right in the middle of my briefing. Who says their not trying to expand their
2. coalition. Don't know how much it cost but I know this is pricey real estate and I bet you swayed lots of people. Nice job Brad. You're a winner. Ok let's shift gears to talk about all the great things that happened at the G-7 summit. @realDonaldTrump got all he wanted
@realDonaldTrump 3. out of the meeting. He wanted to spend as much time doing Putin's bidding by begging and pleading to get Russia back into the G-7. By some accounts he took up half the meeting doing Vlad's job because Russia's priorities are America's priorities. I understand he's also
@realDonaldTrump 4. to direct Burger King and McDonalds to add Borscht to all of their menus to replace the Chinese chicken salads. Trump also got what he wanted by ignoring "niche" issues like climate change by refusing to go to the climate change session, I understand he was pleading with
@realDonaldTrump 5. Melania to stop staring at Trudeau that way and to stop talking about him in her sleep. It was all very upsetting for @realDonaldTrump and having to sit through the hoax science of climate change would have been too much. On a side not, he's offered to buy Greenland and give
@realDonaldTrump 6. it to Canada for a dollar if Trudeau will lay off Melania. He also managed to avoid any discussion of the Iran nuclear deal even though every other country thought it was a priority. What he did have time for while other world leaders were working on important issues was
@realDonaldTrump 7. was note through twitter the birthdays of several important global players. There is nothing that says I really want to be an international leader than taking time out of G-7 meeting to wish Regis, Sean Connery and Vince McMahon happy birthday. One last not on tweets.
@realDonaldTrump 8. @realDonaldTrump did tweet that all of the foreign leaders remarked to him that the number one issue for them was how the fake news media was dumping on Trump and the U.S. economy. Let me save you all a lot of time in checking with foreign governments. Unlike ours, they
@realDonaldTrump 9. Have important things to do and spending time trying to come up with a clever bi-lingual non denial denial puts the world at risk. No one said that to @realDonaldTrump He just made the whole thing up. It's harmless, no one got hurt so don't read too much into it. Except
@realDonaldTrump 10. from time to time to time, he does make things up. Deal with it. Q. The President seems to be all over the map on China trade deal. Is this just gamesmanship or is he just making things up to amuse himself. A. I'd refer you to my previous answer. Seriously, POTUS
@realDonaldTrump 11. doesn't have a real grasp of the issues involved in trade. The team excludes him from most of the discussions so his tweets are generally just a way to get the team to pay attention to him. And it works, every time he tweets, they all run into the Oval Office all wound up.
@realDonaldTrump 12. The reality is we all know this is a war we can't win. and when I say we all know, I exclude the President. He's still convinced that this is easy and we're making money and the price of his cheeseburgers haven't gone up so what the hell is everybody talking about. And
@realDonaldTrump 13 when it comes to agriculture, he made it clear this week that nobody really wants our crops, they just buy them to be nice to him. So he doesn't see what the big deal is about.
@realDonaldTrump 14. Q. @PressSec clarified a comment about @realDonaldTrump comments about second thoughts on China tariffs. Any response? A. Sure didn't take @PressSec to join the ridiculous lying club. Spicer did it over crowd size, Sanders over FBI buddies and now @PressSec over saying
@realDonaldTrump 15. The President didn't mean what he clearly meant. She was undercut a little later by Larry Kudlow who said the President didn't hear the question. Larry certainly didn't judging by the number of bloody Mary's he appears to have consumed by the time the Sunday shows rolled
@realDonaldTrump 16. around. So, before ever entering the briefing room, @PressSec has entered into a small fraternity, those who are paid by the taxpayer to officially lie for the President. Well done Stephanie. Now let's see you do it on camera rather than twitter.Your boss will love it more
@realDonaldTrump 17. Q. What do you think previous Press Secretaries think of her performance. A. well as a source familiar with one of them, it's not just its embarrassing, unprofessional and dangerous to our democracy, its that its so predictable that it's become boring. Spinning a great
@realDonaldTrump 18. Is an art. Who can forget when Mike McCurry was asked if the President had full confidence in his FBI director and Mike said, the President thinks he's doing the best job he knows how to do. But outright lying is just boring, there's no flair or creativity. So @PressSec
@realDonaldTrump 19. welcome to that infamous club and let us know when you go away so we can start paying attention to the office again. Q. Does the President really believe we should use nuclear weapons to help deter Hurricanes. A. Yes, but only if the Hurricanes are threatening Denmark or
@realDonaldTrump 20. Puerto Rico. Q. He really thinks nuclear weapons should be deployed for this? A. the bad news is yes, the good news is no one else does, except Stephen Miller, the worst news is Stephen Miller believes it. Q. Does the President support efforts to target journalists and
@realDonaldTrump 21. out them publicly with tweets and facebook posts? A. Yes he does. he asked some GOP operatives to do it after losing patience that Don Jr. couldn't get it done. He's got some real good ones and you'll be seeing them on his twitter feed soon. Q. Isn't this intimidating the
@realDonaldTrump 21. press? A. Yes, why else would he do it. It's called the art of the deal. Insult a bunch of people than ask them to bail you out when you run out of money. Q. @potus retweeted something like 35 posts from Judicial Watch. Don't you find that unusual? A. A little bit since
@realDonaldTrump 22. attention span is not normally that extensive. But the real reason is Bill Barr is on vacation hunting big game with Eric this week, so Judicial Watch is the acting Attorney General of the United States temporarily. They're doing a great job.
@realDonaldTrump 23. Has the President seen the pictures of Melania and Justin Trudeau and does he have any concerns? A. If he wasn't concerned, why do you think he's pushing the meme that Melania will be the deal closer with Chairman Kim because she understands him so much. He's freaked out.
@realDonaldTrump 24. He doesn't want to lose Melania to a younger, better looking man and force him back to porn stars, playboy models and anyone with a pulse. This is important, but it's private so he'd appreciate if no one retweets that picture. Seriously, he wants to get rid of them all
@realDonaldTrump 25. That's it for today. Don't forget to listen to @WMM_podcast where we take a slightly more serious look at the issues and are a little less tongue in cheek in critiquing the President.
@realDonaldTrump 25. One last point, Trump got the most important thing he wanted at G-7, making sure next year's was at one of his properties, imagine how much he's going to mark up Macron's room?
