1. Welcome to today's abbreviated edition of the White House Daily #shadowbriefing Day 175 White House briefing held hostage. We'll be short today because we can. Let's start with an update on Hurricane Dorian
2. Because of the unprecedented leadership of @realDonaldTrump Alabama was spared total devastation from Hurricane Dorian. Send your crews down there and you'll see, Dorian didn't lay a glove on Dothan...see what I did there? You can use that for a headline. And how do
@realDonaldTrump 3. we know Alabama was in jeopardy? Well just look at the map the President used. He used his Sharpie to extend the storm area to include Alabama. What incredible foresight and leadership. Roy Moore and the blackface Governor are currently holding a news conference to thank
@realDonaldTrump 4. the @potus. Now I'll take questions. Q. But, the President clearly just drew that himself to cover for his twitter mistake. Don't you think we all noticed that. A. I don't know what you're talking about. It's clearly in the same color ink. Look at it white sharpie and
@realDonaldTrump 5. black sharpie. I'm not sure what your point is? Q. Speaking of deception, why is the WH now saying Marc Short was wrong in saying the President suggested @vp stay at his Doonbeg golf course hours from Dublin? A. Because he did suggest it, in fact order it, but no one was
@realDonaldTrump 6. to admit to it. How dumb can you be. Trump is making tens of millions off these trips, the cabinet is all lined up to stay at golf courses exclusively but telling the truth puts it all at risk. So we're just going to lie. There you have it. We lie, we get caught, no one
@realDonaldTrump 7. cares. Next question. Q. How does the President feel about McConnell saying he'll only bring up gun control if Trump supports it. A. The President has made clear to the Majority Leader that he is a bigger weanie than Mitch is. There no way in hell the President is going to
@realDonaldTrump 8. lead here. That's not the role of the President. @realDonaldTrump lets everyone else walk the plank and then he leave them hanging. Yes, I mixed a metaphor, what are you going to do about it? Nothing, that's what I thought. Q. How does the POTUS feel about losing another
@realDonaldTrump 9. court case on press freedom and suspending press passes. A. The President agrees with @PressSec that protecting well understood norms is of paramount importance and he'll appeal the decision. Q Are you serious, @realDonaldTrump has smashed every norm. A. Yeah, you're right
@realDonaldTrump 10. can't really sell that one. Forget it, we won't appeal. Q. Does POTUS have a comment on Ivanka's suddenly Seymour dress yesterday. A. The President says his daughter is hot and he'd date her if he could. That still stands.
@realDonaldTrump 11. Last question--I've got things to do. Q. Isn't it a huge political loss that the Mexicans are not paying for the wall, the US military and FEMA are? A. @realDonaldTrump sent a bill to the Mexicans today. He expects it to be paid in full within 90 days. If not he'll be
@realDonaldTrump 12. be really mad at them. He may even call them a bunch of names. That's all for today, these questions are all cynical and negative. Not even my lies can counter them today. let's try again tomorrow
