Update: Things started off angry…“For all the talk lately about ‘fake news,’ this political witchhunt by some in the media…is frankly shameful & disgraceful…. Highly irresponsible for a left-wing blog… to drop highly salacious and flat out false information on the Internet.”

As we detailed earlier, in what is sure to be a fiery event, Trump is set to host his first press conference since being elected President at 11AM EST this morning. Will today’s press conference be another political “rick-roll,” as CNN’s furious Jake Tapper described his last event at Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C., or will the anxious mainstream media finally get their shot at peppering Trump with questions about Russia, conflicts of interest and/or whatever the other “fake news” de jour is? Given that Trump outsmarted the media at pretty much every turn during the 2016 campaign cycle, we have our guess as to who will emerge victorious after today’s event.
