Trump Two-Steps Back Yesterday’s Presser [VIDEO]

It was pretty unanimous that yesterday’s press conference was not not Trump’s best moment as president. It wasn’t the end of days, or anything comparable to 9/11 or Kristallnacht (no, really), but it was definitely cringy.

The reaction resulted in the White House calling an emergency meeting this morning, and then a press conference this afternoon. Let’s say that the president was in damage control mode.


Trump has said this before about the Obama administration’s inaction.

Interestingly, one person who was not flipping out over yesterday’s press conference was Professor Stephen Cohen, Russia expert and contributing editor at The Nation.

“I’ve never seen anything like it in my life,” Professor Stephen Cohen said. “The reaction by most of the media, Democrats and anti-Trump people is like mob violence.”

Earlier in the day, Trump drew bipartisan criticism for questioning the conclusion of U.S. intelligence that Russia hacked the DNC’s emails in 2016, touting Putin’s “strong” denial of the allegations just laid out by Mueller.

Cohen said it’s been common since World War II for the U.S. president to meet with the leader of the Kremlin, “in order to avoid war between the two superpowers.”

“Relation between the United States and Russia are more dangerous than they have ever been, including the Cuban Missile Crisis,” Cohen said.

He said he did not vote for Trump in 2016 but that he wanted the president to meet with Putin in hopes of “walking back conflicts that could lead to war.”

Cohen called the criticisms a “kangaroo court” and that some people are “hunting Trump.”

Now, Cohen is a Russian apologist to a large extent, but I don’t think he’s wrong here. Yes, Trump says and Tweets dumb things. Yes, the presser Q&A ended up being a bad moment. But treason? 9/11? Pearl Harbor? Kristallnacht?


And there was at least one light moment in the presser today. Or, lack of light moment, actually.


Can we all just take a deep breath and have everyone come down from DEFCON 1 hysteria? Is that too much to ask?

    When we have WWIII with Russia will they finally be happy? Rhetorical because we know they can never be happy. Meanwhile ol’ Chicago Jesus aka Dingle Barry is slumming in South Africa attacking Trump (populist right wing billionaires) but without saying his name.
    What happened to the Hopey Changey girls swooning and fainting? Oh…that’s all gone now. What did people expect a wrestling cage match with Trump and Putin?

      What we expected was that he would support his own government over Russia. It wasn’t asking much but once again, he couldn’t rise to the level and do the right thing.
