In these remaining days, he has use of the White House briefing room where he can make a statement and walk out. Or he can make the use of the same venue , make a statement and then take questions. That’s freedom of speech too. I hope he does the latter. And we all know he won’t do that.

I think Alfred Hitchcock is running things for the next few days.
