Retweeted by Ashley ParkerFor those asking, here's @PostBaron's statement on the latest White House dust-up w the media —> AND SERIOUSLY: "Basically, all I've done is keep my promise." —TrumpIronic Trump is calling for named sources in the media, when his own aides just demanded anonymity to push back on a story they didn't like.Trump just bashed WaPo's Flynn story that cited nine sources, says they're made up. Truth bomb: The sources were real. Flynn resigned.

But when they saw us, they switched to 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 and said, "Go press!"
@SoDak_Soldier Hey! What's your email? Pence press corps here in Brussels — wanted to say hi (in person).We choose to take that as a compliment... A loyal best man convincing a confused bride that the wedding must go on after a bachelor party gone awry... Pence: Shadow president or mere shadow? @michaelbirnbaum and I report on his trip abroad. Memorial. Dachau Concentration Camp. Dachau, Germany. 1,354 days until the next election, so Trump gets started with a boisterous rally of Florida fans.

"I wouldn't say Secret Service was thrilled with that — but know our people," Trump says, after summoning an eager fan onstage."I want to go back to having an out-of-sight role," Michael Flynn told @nickschmidle. That ambition proved illusory…

@ambchrishill Hi. Ashley Parker from the Washington Post. Trying to reach you for a story, please email me:✈️✈️✈️ darkness my old friend when you call an Uber at 4:30 am and say you're going to "the White House," everyone thinks you're insane and refuses to pick you up.Great @shearm @maggieNYT @GlennThrush piece that sums up the spectacle that was today's Trump presser.
Updated: Trump claims he 'inherited a mess' at sprawling, grievance-filled news conference. W @WPJohnWagner."Presidential id" got cut. "Festivus" made it in. I'll take it. My story w @WPJohnWagner on Trump's presser. from @WashingtonPost and Storied Media Group: Will @AshleyRParker be played by @EllenPage?
Retweeted by Ashley ParkerTrump's news conference today was the verbal equivalent of his brash and impetuous early morning Tweet-storms., that was a doozy of a press conference. Our first take version for the web--> and prayers to anyone who has to pick a headline from this presser.
Retweeted by Ashley ParkerTrump to the media: "The public doesn't believe you people anymore. Now maybe I had something to do with that -- I don't know." #TruthAnd in response to publicly stating false facts, Trump responds: "Well, I was given that information."'s obsession w the front page seems only to rival that of reporters and editors themselves, and maybe Sen. Schumer.Normally Trump seems to relish bashing everyone. But today he seems subdued, not even delighted to brag about his 306 electoral votes.Trump seems to acknowledge that his first month isn't going great -- and then immediately assigns blame: "I inherited a mess."Nice, behind-the-scenes tale of good, old-fashioned reporting, by @marianne_levine, on how she got the Puzder tape.
And correcting my typo: PUZDER withdraws his nomination for Secretary of Labor. from Andy Puzner, on his decision to withdraw. withdrawing, WH official confirms.Town Hall and Christian Broadcasting Network.

He was on a beach, at a resort in the Dominican Republic. Pence? The Vice President was in the dark for two full weeks over the Flynn scandal. Pence sits above the fray — but at what cost? @costareports and I go inside the ongoing saga w Mike Flynn. latest w/ @AshleyRParker: Pence remains above the fray, but is he outside the inner circle?
