President Trump's press conference yesterday was easily THE news of the day.
Folks from all over the political spectrum couldn't turn away.
Thank you for all of the nice statements on the Press Conference yesterday. Rush Limbaugh said one of greatest ever. Fake media not happy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 17, 2017
Far-right talk radio's Rush Limbaugh called it "one of the most effective press conferences I have ever seen."
CNN’s Jake Tapper described it as “unhinged” and an airing of grievances à la Festivus.
Then there was this reaction on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" today:

And, of course, the late night comics had a field day:
Jimmy Kimmel: “Except for ‘Fox & Friends,’ the president is extremely angry at the news media. Apparently, he spends a lot of time watching people talk about him and it gets him riled up. Would someone unplug his TV and take his phone away before we all get blown to smithereens here?”
Stephen Colbert: “It was a robust one hour and 17 minutes long. That is beefy. So beefy, you could eat it with a fork. But you’re going to want to use a spoon to get every drop of the crazy.”
Trevor Noah: “We had a really nice show planned for you — very civil, very calm — and then, in the middle of the day, Hurricane Trump happened. Again.”
