Trump cracks media jokes to reporters' kids during Halloween Oval Office trip

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked if the White House's position on the women who accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct is that they are lying.

"I can not believe the media produced such handsome children", the president said, repeatedly, likely leaving them confused. "What pisses me off is that the guy is president", she said.

Trump has one of the most antagonistic relationships with the press of any politician in recent memory, often railing against "fake news" from his Twitter account and complaining of unfair and biased coverage. "Beautiful, she's Japanese, I'm going to be in Japan in two weeks".

Like a benevolent uncle, (sitting behind an alpha male boardroom desk), the president handed out the chocolate with the heartwarming, confidence-building aside "Well, you have no weight problems, that's the good thing, right?"

"I can not believe the media produced such handsome children" he told the children, dressed in costumes, as their parents - the media - stood outside.

Asked by a reporter on Friday whether it "was the official White House position that all of these women are lying", Sanders said, "Yeah, we have been clear on that from the beginning and the president has spoken on it".

Trump complimented the members of the press corps, saying they "did a good job", then pointing to their kids, specifying he meant with them, not with himself. Trump told the children to take as much candy as they wanted and gave the kids extra candy to give to their friends. "So you take out whatever you need".

These are lovely, wonderful children.

"So how does the press treat you?" "Fog will fill the air, and the trees and south facade will be lit with different colors throughout the night".
