My rant for the day.

I am sick and tired of news people saying and writing "The White House said, the White House told them what they could say"and on and on. The White House is a building, it does not speak. Say a name, if you do not know the name of the person speaking then go to the top, say Trump. He asked for it, give him the blame. The buck stops with him.

We never know WHO in the White House is saying these things.

My guess is that Kelly is the one running the country more so than Dump. Dump has to have his "executive time" y'know.

Good rant. The news outlets need to learn "Trump speak". Say it in terms that is not ambiguous.

But a consortium of individuals. I have no problem with an otherwise anonymous statement from the White House. Peace.

It's group think. Trump may not even be in on it. There is no single individual that you can identify.

to give a press conference. Alex Nitwit cut away to listen to Nancy Pelosi, but as soon as Annie Kuster, head of the opioid initiative got up to the mike, MSNBC went back to interviewing the Republican they had on the show. Don't they know press conferences are held because people want the public to know something???????????????????

it's pretty obvious "the White House" has to "speak" instead of the incompetent buffoon who is supposed to be president
