Y'alls hero, being the sulking little bitch that he is.
I don't think that Trump actually enjoys being President. Of course, he likes the *idea* of being president - the adulation, the power, the attention and so on. However, I strongly suspect that he doesn't like the day-to-day work.

What Trump likes is the opportunity to thrust himself into the public eye, to be the centre of attention. This is why he enjoys political rallies so much. I'm sure that he'd enjoy being president much more if it was basically a figurehead, monarchical position.

A court rules the President has to allow r.soles to question him. Unbelievable!

Drain the swamp.
The reporter tried to ask Trump questions about what was happening to the army that he'd sent to the US-Mexico border and what was happening with the much-vaunted caravan of migrants, now that the mid-term elections were over. Trump repeatedly brushed him off and dodged the question. The reporter was trying to do his job and get the President to answer the question. White House staff then tried to take the microphone away from the reporter because you can only ask two (or three?) questions each. He didn't consider that he'd got an answer to his questions so he held on to the microphone. The White House then revoked his press pass.

Frankly, I prefer the freedom of the press, to the freedom of the President to ban a journalist he doesn't like...

It was a press conference not a one to one interview. If he did not like the answers tough. His time ran out. That’s the way these events work.

John Kelly is out - although this was rumoured for quite awhile. Does this mean the family members return to front and centre again? (Kushner, Ivanka, et al)

Trump chief of staff: Speculation mounts over job

"Speculation is mounting over who will be US President Donald Trump's new chief of staff after the man believed to be the top candidate said he too was leaving the government. Nick Ayers, chief of staff to the vice-president, will reportedly return to his home state of Georgia. The 36-year-old was seen as Mr Trump's main choice to replace Gen John Kelly, who will depart by the year's end. But the president appeared to dismiss the idea he had wanted Mr Ayers. 'I am in the process of interviewing some really great people for the position of White House Chief of Staff'"
