Jesus. WH's Flynn comes out and threatens Iran. Leaves. They give 1st q to Skype seat, a pre-canned question has NOTHING to with Iran.

Right so to get a question in via Skype you have to lob a dixer or a "softball?" (As one Canadian followers told me they're called there.) pic.twitter.com/w3srrvEo5G

Sean Spicer's happy to have Skype in the press room so he can talk to radio stations and so Trump can watch live pee-pee shows after hours. pic.twitter.com/p1m5h29rOn

Do reporters have to promise to pander to get Skype access to the White House press briefings?

Most of these Skype seats are just cheerleaders for Trump.

These Skype questions are pure propaganda!

These Skype questions from Trumpanzee "journalists" are a motherfucking joke.

I bet the actual reporters there are loving the sycophantic softballs being lobbed at Trump's press secretary from the giant Skype screen.

So Skype seats are basically just an opportunity for Spicer to serve talking points through conservative journalists?
