Critic’s Notebook: Trump’s Press Conference
Echoes Death Throes of  Watergate

It was a rambling, bellicose affair that will be studied by psychology students for decades to come.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump’s press conference to announce Alexander Acosta as his new nominee for labor secretary turned into an extended psychodrama, the likes of which we havent seen since Richard Nixon during the death throes of Watergate.

.

Its frowned upon for members of the psychiatric profession to deliver armchair analysis of public figures, but Trump is not making that temptation easy to avoid. During his rantings and ravings, you expected white-uniformed figures to burst in with a straitjacket and a rubber net.

.

After spending the briefest amount of time extolling the virtues of his new nominee  we learned that Acosta was a great student  Trump quickly pivoted to  what else?  himself.

.

He proceeded to deliver lengthy infomercial about his administrations accomplishments, citing the incredible progress in the last four weeks and having apparently become a believer in the accuracy of polling  citing a Rasmussen poll citing that he had a 55 percent approval rating. He failed to mention Pews 39 percent rating and Gallups 41 percent, but then again, those are probably fake polls.

.

This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine! he boasted, indicating that he really needs to find a better mechanic. To be honest, I inherited a mess. A mess! he claimed, although his definition of the word clearly differs from, lets say, reality. We have begun the monumental task of turning the government over to the people, he declared, which is true if you only mean people worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

.

Naturally, his main topic of discussion was the fake media. The press has become so dishonest that if we dont talk about it were doing a tremendous disservice to the American people, Trump said to the very media he was denouncing. The level of dishonesty is out of control, he told the reporters, who were no doubt wondering if theyd entered the Twilight Zone.

.

His arguments might have carried a bit more weight if they hadnt been accompanied by a slew of lies, such as when Trump boasted about his Electoral College win. We got 306! he crowed. It was the biggest Electoral College win since Ronald Reagan except, as several reporters pointed out minutes later, it wasnt.

.

In response, Trump resorted to his usual excuse: I was given that information. Ive seen that information around, he said, inevitably passing the buck. It was a very substantial victory, do you agree with that? he asked the reporter, who could only acknowledge, Youre the president.

.

Among the accomplishments he touted was his game-changing rule that says for every new regulation, two old regulations have to be eliminated. But while that sounds like a good strategy for cleaning out your closet, it doesnt exactly inspire confidence when it comes to the federal government.
