    Listen to his first sentence. He very clear said if Putin elects Trump, then goes back and revised his statement.

    At least I'm pretty sure that's what I heard. I'm on mobile right now but give me a min and I'll go back and watch the vid.
    He said "likes" not "elects"

    If Putin likes Donald Trump. I just listened to it a few times because I thought he said elect at first too, but he doesn't.

    Oh I see what you're getting at. The first time around, I'm hearing elects but it's actually likes. Looks like you're right about this. Still, it sounds any awful lot like elects if you ask me.

    It is pretty cringe-worthy watching:

    Ahahaha fucking shit, Trump is an idiot. It's hilarious on so many levels, and the journalist is standing there screaming like an idiot as well. Like, you're not going through dude, give up. As inappropriate as this whole thing is, he actually was talking over his colleague that Trump gave the question to.

    Congrats to US on your new president, hell at least I get to say I didn't have a choice about mine.

    yeah honestly the cnn reporter was just plain rude, but trump, instead of handling it like an adult decided to call him fake news and made a scene bigger than the reporter could've ever done.

    this is hell

    No, you are wrong. Here is the exact quote, word for word: "If Putin elects Donald Trump, I consider that an asset, not a liability." Watch the video.
    Give it up, he said "likes" and everyone but you heard that. It's not like it's much better, but non the less.

    I clearly hear it as "likes" and the official transcript on New York Times reads the same:

    Do you accept that part of the finding? And will you undo what President Obama did to punish the Russians for this or will you keep it in place?

    TRUMP: Well, if — if Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset, not a liability, because we have a horrible relationship with Russia.

    Dude, he said likes the first time. I've re-watched the same clip 5 times because yeah, it's a little mumbly, but on my TV with loud speakers, he said "likes", not "elects".

    i look at it like this. trump has the potential to fuck us up on a global scale, pence has the potential to fuck us up on a local scale. it's up to the individual to decide which one is worse.
    If something has to get ruined, I'd much rather it just be us and not have the rest of the world suffer because of the poor decisions of a small portion of the American people.

    As for impeachment, the only way I see it sticking is if public opinion swings so heavily against Trump that the Republican Congress will have to do it to save their own skins. It's certainly possible if more light is shed on the Russia angle and people don't just forget about it, in addition to his already abysmal approval ratings.

    The CNN reporter said that at the beginning of the conference Trump had already made an indication that he wasn't going to accept any questions from CNN.

    Please point me to an instance of a previous president flat out refusing to reply to an outlet in a White House press conference.

    QUESTION: ... since the ’70’s has had a required audit from the IRS, the last place to release them, but as president sir...

    TRUMP: You know, the only one that cares about my tax returns are the reporters, OK? They’re the only who ask.

    QUESTION: You don’t think the American public is concerned about it?

    TRUMP: No I don’t think so. I won, when I became president. No, I don’t think they care at all. I don’t think they care at all.

    That's true but if Trump really starts to tank the GOP ratings hard, they might impeach him when an opportunity to arises and salvage what they can with Pence as president whos more workable.

    This really is going to turn into some President Camacho bullshit, help us.

    No he wasn't in any way. You don't get to just scream at the person giving the press conference, you're either addressed or you aren't. Otherwise you're disrupting the event and making it harder for your colleagues, that's rude as fuck and no one is going to thank you for it.

    Not defending Trump in any way though, he acted like a retard throwing toys out of the pram there. It was inappropriate as shit.

    It was reasonable in a... personal level, yes. I completely understand his frustration, but it was unprofessional to behave in such a way. It's against the rules set for press conference-type events, it doesn't really matter if Trump broke it first.

    Exactly why it won't happen, if republicans haven't proven it already, they don't care about anything besides their own job and their agenda.

    Unless there is a video with Trump stabbing someone in the back, he won't be impeached. We are just straight up fucked.

    I personally think that the CNN reporter got too heated and shouldn't have made such a scene, but Trumps response was equally as much if not more childish and not to mention concerning. The way Trump treats the press is mortifying.

    What was the line that Trump said during his campaign? Something along the lines of "if I shot someone on the street, I wouldn't be supported any less" or am I remembering something else?

    The US government has a lot of people in whom Trump has deadly enemies. If there is a strong indication he'll actually jeapoardize national security, he'll meet with a tragic accident. Unless he gets the military and alphabet agencies entirely on his side, anyway.

    It was way more childish and concerning. If you don't accept questions from press you don't like - that's no press-conference on its own, but the way he addressed the reporter is just mind-bogglingly terrible on top of that.
