A White House reporter on MSNBC stated that President Trump’s Monday press conference was “unlike anything” he had seen under Obama, calling Trump the “great disruptor.”
On “MSNBC Live With Katy Tur,” the host asked, “Let’s start with Mitch McConnell, because that’s the reason this news conference happened. Tee two of them had lunch today. Give us a little insight about what they talked about and what they hoped to get done going forward.
The reporter, Peter Alexander, answered, “Well, to be clear, this President we have described before as the ‘great disruptor’ and this was certainly unlike anything I have seen in my time covering the White House under the last President, this wouldn’t have happened where the press would be waiting for Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the Press Secretary, to deliver her remarks and take questions in the briefing room.”
He added, “We just received a call literally saying go out to the Rose Garden right now, the President is going to be taking questions. That doesn’t happen typically. This President obviously likes to sort of overwhelm the narrative by addressing so many topics at once, which makes it even so difficult, I think, to digest all the headlines that he made.”
