#1 My hope.....Chief of Staff John Kelly proceeds Sanders prior to the next presser to make the following announcement to the assembled WH press corps:

"If I could have your attention please. I have noted some ill-treatment and harsh rhetoric dirercted against Ms. Sanders in many of these press briefings. Ms. Sanders works for me and speaks for the President of the United States. One more instance of abuse against Ms. Sanders or anyone working for me by this body and the briefings will be immediately cancelled for six months and replaced with hard-copy press releases. This is my first and last warning. Do I make myself clear?"

#3 I just don't understand. If I mocked my teacher or otherwise was a disruption in class, I was either sent out to the hallway or to the principal's office. Why some of these media reps still have a seat at the daily press conferences is beyond me.

#4 Jim AssCosta does regularly make a clown of himself and illustrates just how biased the press is.

#6 My mother made sure that we kids stopped acting like this when we were about 4. She's still available if the press needs a little sort-of gentle training.

#7 The media don’t think Sanders should be "choked," they just want to "wring" her neck.

The fact checker is clearly correct, except for the just modification. To wring someone’s neck comes from a method of killing chickens and other small animals: If you wring a bird’s neck, you twist it like a wet cloth in order to break its neck, killing the bird. Choking, however, can be used merely to subdue rather than kill, making the howling hordes of the press look worse after the correction, rather than better.

#9 When you wring a chicken's neck you're not choking it (heh). You're BREAKING it. So Sanders was being charitable in interpreting "wrining her neck" as "choking".

#10 Should have read all the comments -- trailing wife said it before I did, and better.
