Limbaugh on Trump: ‘This Was One of the Most Effective Press Conferences I Have Ever Seen’
Breitbart ^ | 16 Feb 2017 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 02/16/2017 1:31:34 PM PST by detective

Thursday following President Donald Trump’s press conference to announce his pick for Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh applauded Trump’s performance on his nationally syndicated radio show.

Limbaugh while the media still won’t warm up to Trump, it was what his supporters wanted to see, which was a willingness to tout his achievements and take on some of the claims from the media.

Rush is right.

President Trump gets an A+ for an excellent, extremely effective press conference.

And this was with the media trying to sabotage him.

The Democrats and media will never figure out that their hysteria will result in more Trump voters.

It was the greatest press conference I’ve ever seen. This country has been waiting 200 years for a President with the guts to stand up and say exactly what Trump said today.

If the Gipper was “The Great Communicator”, The Donald is “The Supreme Communicator”.

This was a masterpiece. He told the media what they should be doing and wasn’t nasty about it. He even had the press laughing at CNN.

No teleprompter and no earbud to his minders. In fact, I’ll bet he doesn’t have minders like that other guy, Wasshisname.

This guy is a master.

Trump, in his press conference, on his inauguration discussion with Putin:

“The conversation was classified, so I’m sure everybody in this room has read it.”

LOL! Classic.

Was listening to Rush as he JIP'd the President's news conference. In addition to being the best political commentator ever, his live analysis was spot on, as usual.

Rush used the word "improv" to describe Trump's style. That's exactly what Trump does, and he's extraordinarily good at it. He sneaks these little comments in that are hilarious, but you have to listen carefully. Trump is a statesman, orator and stand up comic - all in one!

I agree. President Trump was brilliant. I wish all Americans could watch it.

It will be interesting to see how the mainstream media twists and smears it.

The defining moment to me was when Trump told the room what their headlines would be> that he was ranting about the press—and that they wouldn’t headliine any of the real issues or things he tallked about that were actions on behalf of the country..

The press conference was hardly over when the first reports on the internet sites of the MSM were exactly about the ‘rant’ on the press.

It’s all about them, not about the good things for the country.

Recall, the other guy would panic if the teleprompter went awry. The other guy NEVER, or maybe only a couple times answered contentious questions with multiple, disbelieving folloup questions. The other guy, in 8 years, never had the hostility Trump has had in the first month.

Acosta having a melt down, media proving the Presidents point, and even asking if Acosta was related.

So now the media can;t say only questions off the conservative media.

It is depressing to see how this POTUS is surrounded by enemies. His friends, and there are plenty, should show their support for him more openly. What is of grave concern is that, because of the constant infighting he has to endure, his personal agenda for MAGA is falling behind of schedule, that is: infrastructure improvement program and energy independence program. Those who are still waiting for an upturn in the job market should understand that they have the MSM and the RATs to thank if they have to wait another jobless week at home. Make your displeasure known at the ballot box in 2020.

FINALLY a Prez that doesn’t creep around lightly, cringing, begging for approval.

He manhandles them like a hockey coach might.

I listened Rush. I agreed with him that it was brilliant. Mark Simone is filling in for Hannity;he is effusive in his praise for how well the President handled the media. Medved thought it was a disaster. I don’t know what happened to his brain.

One of the telling things that will connect with Americans. When the president remarked on the hatred on CNN. (And I’d say, the View, MSNBC, and a lot of other places). Pure hatred of the president and his supporters.

The media is out of control with their hatred for Trump.
They deeply resent Hillary’s loss, which has clouded their
minds and thinking. They can’t get over it and move on.
Many of these people sound like broken records.
