Skip to comments.Trump's Press Conference Leaves Reporters 'Shaken,' 'Rattled'

Independent Journal Review (IJR) collected a few unintentionally hilarious Twitter responses from journalists who reported being shaken by President Donald Trump’s aggressiveness in an extraordinary press conference Tuesday that was centered on questions about the weekend’s violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Vanity Fair reporter Gabriel Sherman was actually physically ill: “I am totally rattled by that presser. Chest tight, stomach queasy. Feel sick”:
Perhaps he should have his testosterone checked. It seems seriously depleted. But then, he does write for Vanity Fair.
Magazine editor David Lytle tweeted his empathy for Sherman: “I vomited on election night. Today, I bawled for 20 minutes. The stress and anxiety brought on by a threatening president is overwhelming”:
NBC’s Chuck Todd reportedly said on the air that the press conference gave him “the wrong kind of chills.”
“Honestly I’m a bit shaken by what I just heard, and I suspect it’s not just me,” he added.
Yahoo News editor Garance Franke-Ruta accused the President of “defending the nighttime white supremacist protest at UVA with torches”
CNN’s Brian Stelter echoed this concern, saying that “Trump risks sounding like a spokesman for the Unite the Right rally right now”
Trump claimed that “both sides” were to blame for the violence in Charlottesville, meaning the white supremacists and the “alt-left” radicals. That fair and balanced approach wasn’t what the left-leaning media wanted to hear.

Media snowflakes. Pathetic.
They’re just viscerally reacting to having their narrative blown out of the water.
When #ImpeachTrump is the top trend on Twitter, you know Trump is doing the right thing for America, and that liberals just hate it.
I haven’t seen the fake news industrial complex freak out this bad since election night. They’re getting desperate and vicious.
I see they have their latest talking points coordinated!
Poor widdow snowfwakes
Gee, Press Snowflakes.
He’s just looking at blame from both sides now
What’s so un rattling that Antifa and blm get called out also?
Things you WON'T see in the lying liberal lamestream media.
Spoiler Alert: None other than the SPLC identified the guy and his ties to alt-left wing organizations!
What about the fault of the police stand down?
Antifa showed up armed with batons, bats, socks full of stones, balloons full of urine and feces and no license to demonstrate.
Whatever the demonstration was supposed to be turned into a hate whitey melee.
The Russia nothing burger has expired and been throw out. Now MSM will obsess that Trump is Hitler and all his supporters are Nazis.
This is the Left’s new shiny object.
The Media are bullies. The first time a bully gets punched in the face, being rattled is usually what happens.
There you go, Trump MAGA. Look what he’s done for the panty industry. How many of these reporter “guys” had to replace their panties yesterday?
Odd, odd... and the same press was so in love with Obama. They lost their objectivism.
Trump was right, plenty of blame to go around.
“I’m literally shaking.”
I had to switch the news this morning, Fox had on two “viewpoints”, both of them, the Dem & the Rep sat there crying and wiping their eyes at how disappointed that Trump took the side of the white supremacists.... what news conference were they watching? The rep guy had the forlorn, sad faced, mouth turned down, wiping his eyes with a tissue...... puke
“Shaken” and “rattled”? That’s so disingenuous.
