I have zero idea when the presser will derail, but it will be derailed, as President Dick ad-lib’s his prepared remarks, and as the President Moron takes questions from the media.
Here are some likely questions to be asked.
As you now are aware the peaceful protests in Minneapolis have turned into riots escalating over night. One escalation caught on tape was the arrest of Omar Jimenez, CNN reporter, during his live broadcast.
In the course of clearing the streets and restoring order at Lake Street and Snelling Avenue, four people were arrested by State Patrol troopers, including three members of a CNN crew. The three were released once they were confirmed to be members of the media.— MN State Patrol (@MnDPS_MSP) May 29, 2020
Jimenez spoke with CNN’s New Day shortly after his release from custody.

The governor of Minnesota Tim Walz (D), apologized and took responsibility for the arrest of the CNN reporter and Crew.

And the breaking news that the former police officer from Minneapolis involved in the death of George Floyd has been arrested.
The ex-Minneapolis police officer seen in a video with his knee on George Floyd’s neck before the unarmed black man died this week has been taken into custody by state authorities, according to the commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety. https://t.co/Zfl1gQIOBc pic.twitter.com/EVoAeqHtPX— CNN (@CNN) May 29, 2020
Also the President Dick’s on-going feud with Free Speech via Twitter. Wherein Twitter held President Dick to the same terms of service as it does the rest of the world, finally, and President Dick reacted by throwing a tantrum.
Bloomberg Quick Take.
Upon Request here is former Vice President Joe Biden addressing the riots in Minneapolis.
