1. We're back for the first Brooklyn edition of the daily WH #shadowbriefing. 169 days have passed and there is no sign that the briefing hostages will be released anytime soon. Today would have been a great day to do one with a bunch of crazy news stories out there, but no go
2. So, let's get right to your questions on this busy day. Q. The President's new Press Secretary @PressSec told the Washington Post that @realDonaldTrump never tells a lie and her proof is he loves his country. Isn't it possible to love your country and tell lies. A. I have
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 3. admit, I wasn't expecting that one. It's some of the best out of the box, sheer crazy, unbelievable, so out there that you almost believe it, spin I've ever heard. So I want to get this straight. Anything he says has to be true because of his love of country. I can just
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 4. imagine all the applications for this. Dad, I didn't do my homework but I love my country so get off my back. Your honor, of course I robbed the bank, but I love my country so I won't be doing any jail time. Makes me wonder, did Jeffrey Epstein love his country also?
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 5. This is so ridiculous that I'm sure Trump came up with it himself. Now, no self respecting, honest public servant would ever say something that stupid and wrong, but no problem here given the source. Q. Followup, so you're saying the President does lie. A. Of course he does
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 6. Have you not been watching, I think the number is over 11k now. By almost any measure almost everything he says is some form of lie or self delusion. You can have an interesting conversation about why and how, but not whether he does it or not. And anyone who denies it
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 7. disqualifies themselves from the conversation. So what's left for @PressSec Well she can retweet the President. She can tweet about what he is doing like, he's in the oval right now on the phone--stop the presses, but that's about it. Now there is always hope for redemption
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 8. @PressSec could always see the light and come clean and #bebest Press Secretary of all time. Actually that's a lie too. Next question. Q. The Washington Post reports the President has told staff to break the law to get the wall built and has promised pardons to all of them.
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 9. A. That story is accurate. Despite the President's lies about already building the wall, he's made clear he can't face the voters without a least building some of it. And guess what, there will be no Peso's bailing this guy out. So he's willing to encourage his staff to
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 10. Commit felonies in order to get elected. Now doesn't that sound familiar. A little like his election campaign in 2016. But here's the big lie and I hope his staff is following this briefing, he's lying about giving out pardons also. If you think he's got your back, you are
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 11. a first class moron. And guess what, you won't have the I love my country defense available to you either. Q. Should Bill Barr as AG be giving money to the Trump organization through his Christmas party. A. Of course he should. He campaigned for the job with a 20 page
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 12. memo on how to keep the President out of jail. He then lied about the Mueller report and shutdown multiple investigations looking the President. But nothing is ever enough for Trump. So think of this as a little Christmas tip to the President. Q. But there are cases in
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 13. court currently alleging illegal profiting by the President. Shouldn't the AG be respectful of that? A. Are you kidding me. He's the President's personal attorney first and AG second. But this may backfire. Trump probably thinks he's gone cheap with this party. He may end
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 14. regretting this one. There are richer guys out there who could be brought in as AG as long as the payoff is rich enough. Q. The President in criticizing @foxnews today seemed to indicate that they have been functioning as state TV, dedicated to his agenda and reelection
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 15. Is that the case? A. Absolutely. Have you watched Fox, they slobber all over him everyday, from the idiots in the morning to the white Nationalists in the evening. But its clear that some executives over there may be sensing a change in the political winds. You remember
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 16. when Rupert Murdoch abandoned the conservatives in London once he knew Blair was going to win. Oh you don't remember that. OK I just told you. But in criticizing FOX, @realDonaldTrump has exposed the relationship for what it is or was. Not sure who POTUS thinks is going
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 17. to replace Fox, but standby for some more info on that soon. Q. Is it appropriate as Puerto Rico is being hit by another hurricane for the POTUS to be hate tweeting at the island and blaming them for the storm. A. It's appropriate for @realDonaldTrump he's the best thing
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 18. that's ever happened to Puerto Rico. He's already warming up his paper towel toss. And remember, he loves his country. Q. Boris Johnson is shutting down parliament to avoid anti-brexit MP's. The President praised him today. Does that make him anti-democracy? A. You bet
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 19. your ass it does. Trump immediately called a cabinet meeting to discuss doing the same thing here at home. He thinks democracy is for wimps, real leaders are like Putin, Kim, MBS and now Boris Johnson. Look for news on shutting down Congress in the interest of loving your
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 20. country. Q. Does the Doral resort have bedbugs? Q. Yes, the best bedbugs in the world, second only to the bedbugs at Mar-A-Lago. That's why he wants world leaders there next year. What better way to run a summit than to make tens of millions and make sure everyone
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 21. leaves with silver dollar size welts covering their body. Those bedbugs love their country by the way. Q. What about Chairman Kim testing new nuclear technology. A. I refer that question to the First Lady's press office. She is handling all North Korea issues from this
@PressSec @realDonaldTrump 22. point forward based on her relationship with Chairman Kim. That's it for today, don't forget to listen to @WMM_podcast --something very special for next week. And remember, next time that cop pulls you over for speeding, tell em you love your country.
