Sean Spicer Appears To Call Turnbull 'Trumble' In Press Conference

If it weren't such a serious subject, the irony would be downright hilarious.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the event was a reminder of national security threats.
"It's not a Muslim ban". This was not correct ― plenty of Republicans had spoken of both previously.
During the campaign, Trump said that he would take a more aggressive approach to combating terrorists than Obama did.
"I think for eight years they got away with it".
Mr. Pena Nieto's scheduled trip to the White House was cancelled once the Mexican president reaffirmed that his country would not pay for a wall along the United States' southern border. That all seems pretty clear.
"I am not going to be drawn into a fight with the USA president", Mr Pyne said.
Political correctness should be a main priority for all American citizens. Remember all that chest-thumping at the Republican National Convention over how bold and fearless the GOP was to use the term "radical Islamic terrorism"? There are certain things that we may, we may not fully understand when we come out.
The ban order was issued on Friday. He did, however, put quotes around "bad" and "dudes".
Security expert Dr. Bessma Momani at the University of Waterloo also said the travel ban has no benefit to national security, calling the countries which were targeted arbitrary.
He added that each offered "thoughtful inquiries on subjects that their respective audiences care about" but "Spicer did not offer straight answers to any of the questions" with no chance for a follow-up.
"Maybe we will. The bottom line is we started with the seven countries that have previously been identified, did a 90-day review". Last week, Spicer was unable to say whether Trump would keep in place President Obama's 2014 executive order barring anti-LGBT employment discrimination among federal contractors.
"It is extreme vetting", he said. White House Spokesman Sean Spicer did not confirm the statement and neither did he deny it.
Tapper took issue with Spicer's attempt at linguistic gymnastics. Trump tweeted, in response to all the rampant confusion: "Everybody is arguing whether or not it is a BAN".
On January 27th, you'll recall, Donald Trump held a joint press conference with Britain's prime minister, Theresa May.
"There is potential for remote questioners to make meaningful contributions to White House press briefings - the first four certainly tried - but, so far, that does not appear to be what the White House really wants", Borchers concluded. "It's not a Muslim ban, but we were totally prepared". It could be hours, days or even weeks before it comes to their attention, but I will be sure to let you know if it does.
As NPR's Domenico Montanaro points out, there are big differences between the George W. Bush 2001 NSC and Trump's, namely that Bush didn't allow a "chief strategist" in meetings.
Spicer continues to insist "it's not a ban".
The problem was that Spicer did not offer straight answers to any of the questions. "We condemn this attack in the strongest possible terms". Such an order is "not a legitimate use of presidential authority", a policy-making expert told Quartz. Trump's senior adviser Kellyanne Conway later suggested that Spicer simply had "alternative facts".
Why did Donald Trump run a campaign that was all built on the negative? As you roll them out, will you be communicating more completely with the media for the kinds of information they need?
