The most surreal presidential press conference ever

Read the transcript here.  Trump is ranting at the media in ways that make extraordinarily clear how big and self-centered a bubble he lives in.  I cannot recall a weirder presidential press conference.

It is hard at times to remember that this strange White House reality TV show is in fact our reality.

I'm heading out tomorrow for three weeks in Europe.  I think I will do my best to avoid American news during that time and instead focus on art, food, culture, and doing my best to stay positive.

These days, staying positive in America is quite the challenge.

Surreal is right! I have never heard a press conference so weird. One person described it as a 'Trump stream of consciousness'. Frightening.
