1. Most Presidents got on the chopper before it started the engines.

They wanted every word the president said to be understood. The chopper noise is a wanted distraction because trump cant speak in full sentences.

5. This has been my pet peeve ...just amazed that

Press goes along with it and doesn't demand a quiet room. Yet he purged the press corps so you may just have lackeys now. You can't tell me it is the only time of day he can ever talk. We can't hear questions or follow up allowing him to riff freely.

Interesting that former prezs didn't do that. Btw...got corrected by someone - not copter rotor noise...it's the generator that supplies power for copter.

What amazed me was zooming in on his face...you can see the pancake makeup.

2. Next to his tweets, this is his most effective propaganda strategy.

Because he only answers questions on the subjects he wants to talk about and ignores the rest. Very effective.

8. It is !!! He said something telling about a press corps

member once. "Not worried, will just shut off his mic". So obviously somehow he is shutting off the mics now. Is the press that scared of him they won't expose this?

3. I think he started doing this so when he fucks up with a really telling statement

he can later say he didn't hear the question.

4. He got rid of the White House daily press release so he can control all news

Everything he does is staged for maximum effect so the chopper noise, the people standing in line behind him waiting to get into the White House, his statements, the questions he chooses to answer and the insults he hands out like candy are 100% deliberate. They are designed for maximum obfuscation, confusion and to simply jerk the press around. They are designed to give him just one more platform to use to maximum benefit. They are his in person live version of tweets.

10. Yes...even throwing off an appearance that he is being whisked

Off to an urgent Pentagon briefing when he is probably going golfing somewhere.

11. Ha! Ya, thought I had a major scoop when I saw

The rotors weren't moving. Like scam helicopter noise. But then someone said it's power generator noise for copter.
