The lapdog media just felt its leash again after eight years in heat.
If there were any lingering questions of how the incoming 45th President of the United States will be handling the press, those questions were answered today.
And the liberal Mainstream Media is not going to like it.
In his first official news conference as the incoming President, Donald Trump sent a clear and strong message; he will not be pandered to or bullied by ANYONE including press hounds who attempted every “gotcha” question feasible to try and trip up The Donald.
Right out the gate, White House correspondents stampeded Trump with questions about the controversial Russian hacking stories, and unfounded allegations Russia had some “dirt” on the incoming world leader. Trump quickly shut them down.
“If they had something on me, they would have used it, just like they did on Hillary…”
In a rare show of empathy for Clinton, Trump continued to say that what John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign manager, said about Hillary was “terrible.” He was referring to leaked Podesta emails during the election race. “If someone would have said about me, what Podesta said about Hillary, I was the boss, I would have fired them immediately.”
Another historic and at times hilarious TRUMP PRESSER (January 11, 2017)
Although the feisty leader condemned hacking calling it “bad” and “it shouldn’t be done” he emphasized what was learned about Clinton in the released email. Expounding on Hillary getting the questions to be asked before the debate Trump exposed media bias smacking them right in the face with their own facts:
“Can you imagine if Donald Trump got the questions before the debate? It would have been the biggest story in the history stories. They would have said immediately you have to get out of the race and yet nobody talked about it.”
Trump also praised Putin for coming out and calling the allegations and unfounded reports completely untrue and “fake news.”
“President Putin and Russian put out a statement today saying the fake news was indeed fake news, that it totally never happened,” Trump said referring to recent unfounded reports that Russia had “dirt” on him.
He went on to say he respected Putin for saying it, emphasizing Russian would have used anything they had against him.
The question revolves around recent unfounded and seemingly unconfirmed stories put out by CNN and BuzzFeed following Trump’s meeting last Friday concerning the Russian hacking report compiled by the CIA. Trump all along has been skeptical of the report and admonished the intelligence agencies if indeed the story was leaked from them.
According to a Fox News report, Trump implied it would be a “tremendous blot on their record” if they did and stood by a tweet likening the leak to the tactics of Nazi Germany.
Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to "leak" into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany?

The unconfirmed report claimed both Trump and President Obama were briefed on unverified information that Russian had compromising personal and financial data that could be used against
Trump. Though the majority of the press refuse to run the story, CNN and BuzzFeed ran it, while BuzzFeed published what is considered the more “juicer crux” of information.
According to an earlier Fox News report, “BuzzFeed published the 35-page document that contained unverified allegations. The news site said it published the document “so that Americans can make up their own minds” about the allegations.”
A part of the leaked intelligence report states Trump’s close advisor, Michael Cohen, was making secretive trips to Praque last year to meet with Russian officials. Cohen has denied that allegation stating he has “never been to Prague in my life,” and can provide proof.
On NBC’s Late Night show last night, Kellyanne Conaway, former Trump campaign manager and now special advisor to the President-elect, pointed the finger at Clinton and her supporters for the “fake news” allegations and also for being behind the investigation from the start, according to a post by the Federalist Papers.
“Well guess what hasn’t happened Seth? No one has sourced it, it’s all unnamed,” Conway answered.
“It also says that Hillary Clinton and groups that wanted Hillary Clinton to win may have been behind the investigation themselves.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation verified Conway’s claim, reporting:
“CNN confirmed that private investigations related to Trump were initially funded by groups and donors supporting Republican opponents of Trump during the GOP primaries, and that once Trump became the nominee, pro-Clinton groups and donors took over the funding.”
Trump summed up the sore losers, Clinton and Progressive left as a conspired attempt to thwart his presidency with the following tweet:
I win an election easily, a great "movement" is verified, and crooked opponents try to belittle our victory with FAKE NEWS. A sorry state!

Prior to Trump’s historic press conference, his press secretary, Sean Spicer, shamed the press for irresponsible journalism:
“It’s frankly outrageous and highly irresponsible for a left-wing blog … to drop highly salacious and flat-out false information on the Internet just days before he takes the oath of office,” he said, referring to BuzzFeed. “The fact that BuzzFeed and CNN made the decision to run with this unsubstantiated claim is a sad and pathetic attempt to get clicks.”
However, during his time with the media, Trump actually showed a little respect for the other media outlets for using restraint:
“I’ve just gone up a notch as to what I think of you,” he quipped.
In his mocking fashion, Trump also teased about questions regarding Putin liking Trump and according the intelligence reports ordered the hacking to assist Trump’s in the election.
“If Putin likes Donald Trump, guess what folks, that is called an asset not a liability,” he quipped back.
The Peace Through Strength President went on to talk about the “horrible” relations between the two superpowers largely due to the failed and reckless Obama policies including the creation of ISIS. As stated before, Trump looks forward to working with Putin on eliminating ISIS and other threats. Although hopeful he and Putin will get along, he questioned whether Hillary could have handled the Russian powerhouse leader:
“Do you honestly believe Hillary would be tougher on Putin than me? Does anybody in this room really believe that? Give me a break.”
