Trump Had Paid Staffers Stand And Cheer At Press Conference
In case you missed it, here's the full video of President-elect Donald Trump's first press conference since the election.
Watching the event, I thought it was odd to hearing cheering (and jeering) during a couple of moments. It turns out Trump had paid staffers stand at the back of the room as a sort of "greek chorus" to provide moral and vocal support. #odd
It also appears that the only media outlet to receive a reserved seat was the white nationalist website, Breitbart, which close Trump advisor Steve Bannon ran for many years.
And then, of course, there was the very uncomfortable back and forth that occurred with CNN's Jim Acosta which included Trump yelling, “I’m not going to give you a question. You’re fake news.”
