    So, the story is that Donald Trump hired a bunch of Russian hookers to piss on each other and makes no mention at all of him beating off? Heh.

    Memo to the left: you're doing it wrong.

    Were you really "all in" nyjetsmets89?

    I mean if a tweet alone could suddenly make it hard for you to sustain your "all for supporting" attitude towards the prez-elect, then with all due respect that claim of support sounds tenuous.

    Original post too long.

    The top 10 key moments

    ■ Mr. Trump said that after his briefing on Friday with American intelligence officials, he now thought Russia was behind the effort to hack his election opponents. “As far as hacking, I think it was Russia,” Mr. Trump said.
    ■ Later in the news conference, Mr. Trump wavered slightly when pressed. “But you know what, it could have been others also,” he said when asked why he had been so critical of American intelligence officials.
    ■ He harshly criticized the publication of unverified reports that claimed Russia has salacious information about his behavior and finances. “I think it was disgraceful, disgraceful that the intelligence agencies let any information that turned out to be so false and fake to get out,” he said. Explaining his Twitter post comparing the United States to Nazi Germany, he said of the leaks: “That’s something that Nazi Germany would have done and did do.” Mr. Trump added that BuzzFeed is “a failing pile of garbage” that would suffer the consequences for publishing the uncorroborated report.
    ■ Mr. Trump said he was untroubled by the intelligence reports that have been made public, which said Russia preferred him over Hillary Clinton and that President Vladimir V. Putin ordered the election meddling to benefit him. “If Putin likes Donald Trump, guess what folks: That is called an asset, not a liability,” he said. He added that a strong relationship could allow the two nations to work together on difficult international issues.
    ■ When asked whether he had a message for Mr. Putin, Mr. Trump said: “He shouldn’t be doing it. He won’t be doing it. Russia will have much greater respect for our country when I am leading it.” He added: “There’s no reset button. We’re either going to get along or we’re not.” But he did not address a question about whether he or anyone on his campaign staff had had contact with Russia during the campaign.
    ■ Mr. Trump swatted away allegations included in the uncorroborated reports. He said he instructs aides any time he goes abroad to ensure that there are no cameras spying on him. He also added, apparently referring to a detail in the report about supposed sex videos with prostitutes, “I’m also very much of a germophobe, believe me.”
    ■ Addressing the topic the news conference was supposed to cover, Mr. Trump said he would not divest from his vast business holdings as he takes office. Instead, the president-elect will turn over the operations and control of those holdings to a trust controlled by his eldest sons, Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr.
    ■ Mr. Trump said that he had considered letting the Affordable Care Act implode on its own and letting Democrats take the political hit he said would follow. But he said he had decided on a more forthright strategy: repeal and replace “almost simultaneously.” Mr. Trump was short on details, but clearer in his intention to try to keep Democrats responsible. “We don’t want to own it politically,” he said.
    ■ The president-elect said he had asked David J. Shulkin, a current under secretary at the Department of Veterans Affairs, to lead the agency. Mr. Trump said his team had interviewed “at least 100 people” in the search for a secretary.
    ■ Near the end of the news conference, Mr. Trump got into a shouting match with Jim Acosta of CNN, who tried to press the president-elect into taking a question. “Since you were attacking our news organization, can you give us a chance?” Mr. Acosta asked. To which Mr. Trump replied: “Your organization’s terrible,” and “don’t be rude,” before dismissing the request once and for all: “You are fake news.” (CNN was the first to report that Mr. Trump and President Obama had been briefed by intelligence officials on the uncorroborated documents, but the network did not publish them.)

    HA. I completely forgot about the whole Birther Fake News nonsense made up by Trump...

    White House invokes birther claims after Trump bemoans 'fake news'

    The White House on Wednesday hit the incoming Trump administration for its lack of transparency, urging it to release more information to rebut claims it says are false, such as reports about the president-elect's supposed entanglements with Russia.

    Obama spokesman Josh Earnest said that's the approach the White House took when confronted with false allegations that the president was not born in the U.S., charges advanced by Donald Trump himself.

    "There were a wide variety of the president's critics who were suggesting and propagating conspiracy theories that somehow the president was not born in the United States," Earnest told reporters.

    He pointed out the administration released a hard copy of Obama's long-form birth certificate in 2011.

    "All of you could look at that piece of paper and verify for yourself to be convinced that the charges against the president - that were lobbed against the president - were false," Earnest said.

    "The incoming administration has chosen a different approach," the spokesman continued. "They've not been transparent."

    The comments showed the White House has little sympathy for Trump's complaints he's been unfairly targeted by the news media and intelligence community over his stance toward Russia.

    During a news conference in New York, Trump angrily dismissed reports that top U.S. officials are looking into an unsubstantiated dossier alleging his campaign officials were in touch with Moscow about how to defeat Hillary Clinton.

    He likened the leaks to "something you would expect to see in 'Nazi Germany.'"

    "It's all fake news, it's phony stuff, it didn't happen and it was gotten by opponents of ours and many of the other people, a group of opponents that got together, sick people," Trump said.

    Earnest said Trump could dispel those rumors - and better address conflict-of-interest questions swirling around his businesses - by taking steps such as releasing his tax returns and other internal documents.

    "There's ample evidence they could marshal to make public to refute those claims, those accusations they say are baseless, but refuse to do so," he said. "That kind of secrecy only serves to sow public doubt."

    So if Trump responds by 2019 it should be adequate?

    Celebrities Stick It To Donald Trump With Dramatic Rendition Of ‘I Will Survive’
    Should be our new national anthem TBH.

    At first we were afraid, we were petrified, kept thinking this was yet another mashup of celebrities dramatically reading lyrics to a famous song.

    Actually, that’s exactly what this is, but there’s something about a video compilation of this year’s Oscar front-runners belting out “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor ahead of Donald Trump’s inauguration that captures the sprit of this political moment.

    As part of W Magazine’s Best Performance Issue, stars like Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Amy Adams, Ruth Negga, Chris Pine, Taraji P. Henson, Matthew McConaughey, Mahershala Ali, Hailee Steinfeld, Dev Patel and more gathered to perform everybody’s favorite fight song.

    “[It’s] the antidote for a still-grieving Hollywood, many members of which were outspoken Hillary Clinton supporters over the past year,” W explains. “And a few of whom have found themselves on the unfriendly end of Donald Trump’s Twitter account.”

    Watch the full video above.
