100 Days Press Conference

I watched it live, but thought it was relatively unremarkable... though it's a constant revelation how much different it is to see our current President take questions than our last one. No cringing, but the occasional wish for him to "Just. Spit. It. Out." though for the most part I appreciate how clearly thoughtful and deliberate he is.

The only noteworthy exchange was the "Wait, let me write this down" when the New York Times reporter asked him a fairly stupid People-esque question with multiple parts... and then actually wrote it down an then proceeded to answer each part. Pretty funny and kind of cool. Except for that question, I thought the press did a fairly decent job for a change.

Here's the video if you want to check it out:
