'Holy Christ, I just swallowed a bee!' Ford exclaimed through a coughing fit as he reached for his water bottle.  In video footage of the press conference which has since gone viral, the bee is seen buzzing around Ford's face seconds before it dives right into his open mouth.   The premier took a swig of his water, quickly composed himself, and joked that video would cause a buzz.  'I'm good. He's down here buzzing around right now,' Ford reassured the crowd, pointing at his stomach. 'He has a lot of real estate!'

    BOSTON (CBS) – About ten protesters pushed their way past security at the Massachusetts State House Wednesday morning. They went by the DCR Rangers just after 10:30 a.m. while Governor Charlie Baker was having a news conference in the library on ending the state’s school mask mandate. They did not enter the room. According to the State House News Service, the protesters were upset about COVID restrictions and the State House being closed to the public. “Shortly before 12:30 p.m. all protesters departed from the State House. No arrests were made,” State Police spokesman Dave Procopio said in a statement. The State House has been closed to the public for 23 months because of the pandemic.

    President BidenJoe BidenBiden says he didn't 'overpromise' Finland PM pledges 'extremely tough' sanctions should Russia invade Ukraine Russia: Nothing less than NATO expansion ban is acceptable MORE on Wednesday bemoaned the partisan divide currently playing out on cable news channels across the country and predicted a drop in ratings in the coming years.  "One of the things I find fascinating is happening and you all deal with it every day and it will impact on how things move is that a lot of the speculation and the polling data shows that the cables are heading south," Biden said during a press conference from the White House. "They're losing viewership."  Biden called out Fox News specifically saying the conservative news network was "okay for awhile but it's not granted and a lot of the rest are predicted to be not in the mix in the next four our five years."  Biden added that many cable news viewers have "put themselves in certain alleys" and observed that the vast majority of the media-consuming public seeks out news sources that reaffirm their political worldviews.  "Again, I'm...
    London and Moscow (CNN)Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that the ball is in NATO's court when asked about increasing fears of war in Ukraine during his annual press conference on Thursday morning. In response to a blunt question on whether Russia will invade Ukraine, Putin said: "How would the Americans react if on their frontier with Canada we deployed our missiles ... it's a question of security and you know our red lines." Putin was addressing the build-up of Russian forces on the Ukrainian border over the past few months. He said that it was simply a response to NATO's expansion towards the east and that he would continue to act in Russia's interest. "They just deceived us blatantly. Five waves of NATO expansion. And there you go -- they're now in Romania and Poland, with weapons systems," Putin said. Russian President Vladimir Putin holds his annual press conference at the Manezh exhibition hall in central Moscow on December 23, 2021. He added that Russia does "not want any military action" but pointed the finger at the US and...

Watson denies any wrongdoing.

    If President Biden makes good on a recent White House promise that he'll field questions from a roomful of reporters for the first time this coming Thursday, he will be doing so on his 65th day since taking office. Saturday marked the 60th consecutive day the nation’s 46th president did not do a news conference with the White House press corps. That stretch has been marked by several near-misses of interactions with the media: On March 3, for example, Biden appeared ready to handle some questions from reporters during a virtual news conference with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, but the video feed of the event suddenly cut off. "I'd be happy to take questions if that's what I'm supposed to do, Nance," Biden said, just before the event suddenly ended. On March 10, Biden was just a few feet away from reporters shouting questions while visiting a hardware store in Washington, D.C., but the president's aides quickly stepped in, The New York Post reported.

    REPUBLICAN Texas Rep Louie Gohmert’s tooth appeared to fall out during a press conference in what has been dubbed as "crowngate". The 67-year-old was talking to reporters about US involvement in Afghanistan at the House Freedom Caucus press conference in Washington DC, when his upper gnasher seemed to fall onto his tongue — before rolling it about his mouth.  5Texas Rep Louie Gohmert was addressing journalists when his dental woe began 5Gohmert then shut his mouth and seemingly tucked the tooth under his tongue Credit: CSPAN 5He then continued on as if nothing happenedCredit: CSPAN The dental debacle unfolded in the middle of a sentence.  Gohmert then shut his mouth to seemingly tuck the tooth under his tongue and soldiered on.  After the incident he clarified on Twitter what had happened.

    Trump campaign senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis unloaded on the media during a heated news conference Thursday, accusing reporters of failing to serve as “unbiased jurors” in the court of public opinion while reminding them their personal views are irrelevant. Trump’s legal team held a press conference in Washington to provide an update on ongoing legal challenges related to the presidential election. Ellis stepped to the podium and started by scolding a reporter who shouted a question directed at Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, who had just finished giving lengthy remarks. “Excuse me, we’re not up to the questions at this point... we’re not at the questions at this point,” Ellis reprimanded the reporter before launching into her comments about the media.   TRUMP LAWYER JENNA ELLIS: WINNER OF TRUMP-BIDEN RACE WILL BE DETERMINED BY COURTS — WE DON’T KNOW YET WHO WON “What you have heard, I’m sure, in the fake newspapers tomorrow will be one of two things. Either there was not sufficient evidence that we presented, or we spoke too long,” Ellis said. “What you’ve heard...
    Not even Vincent LaGuardia Gambini could successfully litigate the groundless voter fraud cases being brought to various state courts by President Donald Trump’s campaign. But that isn’t stopping Rudy Giuliani from trying — by summoning the spirit of the titular lawyer from the ’90s comedy classic My Cousin Vinny, no less. In an utterly bizarre sequence during a Thursday news conference in Washington, the former New York mayor channeled his Big Apple compatriot, actor Joe Pesci, in an effort to claim that Trump campaign representatives were stationed too far away to meaningly observe the ballots being tallied. (The Pennsylvania Supreme Court rejected this claim on Tuesday.) Giuliani invoked a famous scene from the film in which Pesci, playing the part of lawyer Vincent Gambini, questioned the eyesight of a witness by moving to the rear of the courtroom, and asking her to count how many fingers he was holding up at that moment. But the reference itself wasn’t good enough. Giuliani actually began acting it out. “How many fingers do I got up?” Giuliani said, in a gruff Brooklyn...
    A former Sri Lankan fisheries minister chomped on a raw fish at a Tuesday press conference as seafood sales in the nation have plummeted over coronavirus concerns. “I am making an appeal to the people of this country to eat this fish. Don’t be afraid. You will not get infected by the coronavirus,” Dilip Wedaarachchi said before biting into the fish. Last month, the Central Fish Market outside the nation’s capital, Colombo, was the site of a major coronavirus outbreak that led to thousands of countywide infections. Since then, fish sales — and consumption — in Sri Lanka have plunged. Tens of thousands of tons of fish have gone unsold. “Our people who are in the fisheries industry cannot sell their fish. People of this country are not eating fish,” Wedaarachchi said at the news conference. With Post wires  Filed under Coronavirus ,  fish ,  sri lanka ,  11/18/20
    California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday received the flu shot during a live news conference, heeding advice health experts have stressed for months as flu season this year coincides with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. “I’ve done this every single year, as long as I can remember,” Newsom said, according to a local news station. “It is a simple thing to do and getting a flu shot is a safe thing to do.” “By getting a flu shot, you’re protecting yourself and you mitigate the impact that what some have referred to as the ‘twindemic’ of a potential second wave of COVID-19 transmissions and the flu happening concurrently putting stress, putting pressure, on our hospital system, draining resources and impacting the quality care that all of you deserve and expect of our health care delivery system,” the governor said, per KERO-TV. Health officials are urging all Americans to receive the flu shot before the end of October. “Healthy adults, including pregnant women, should get the vaccine as early as possible (pregnant women are not only at particularly high risk of...
    On March 11, when the NBA shut down its games in light of several positive Covid-19 tests and kicked off a rapid-fire series of events and news items that would trigger nationwide lockdowns, Denver Nuggets coach Mike Malone had a few words of wisdom for how he planned to spend his time away from the game:  “I’m probably going to drive up to WeldWerks Brewery in Greeley, Colorado, get some Juicy Bits, get on my mountain bike and figure out how we’re going to move forward,” he told the Denver Post and other media outlets at a news conference. Words of wisdom — and words that could have come from just about any Colorado resident with a penchant for local craft beer and getting outdoors. Weldwerks, after all, has become one of the state's most popular breweries over the past few years, based partially on its flagship, Juicy Bits IPA. The shout-out, of course, delighted the staff at Weldwerks, especially since the NBA and its arenas are so closely associated with the nation's familiar industrial light lagers, rather than craft...

    President Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a White House press conference at 5:00 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday. The president is likely to address this week’s peace deal between Israel, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. Members of the media expressed more interest in other topics during a briefing earlier in the afternoon with White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, focusing almost exclusively on the coronavirus pandemic. Centers for Disease Control Director Robert Redfield told Congress shortly before McEnany’s briefing that he believed face masks were a more effective countermeasure in battling the virus than any vaccine that could be developed in the future, undermining comments the president made during a Tuesday evening forum with ABC News in which he questioned the efficacy of widespread mask usage. “There are people that don’t think masks are good,” Trump said the event. Other issues that may arise include a proposed deal between Oracle and China’s ByteDance to share control of TikTok, the latter company’s video-sharing platform. Trump signed an executive order in August to eject the platform from American shores by September...
     President Donald Trump will hold a news conference at the White House beginning at 5:15 p.m. EDT. on Thursday night. The briefing comes after Trump’s escalated his attack on mail-in voting during an interview with Fox Business, during which he blamed Democrats for the stalled negotiations over a coronavirus stimulus package. Trump also touted a peace deal forged between Israel and the United Arab Emirates as a “diplomatic breakthrough” earlier on Thursday and claimed, “I wanted it to be called the Donald J. Trump Accord but I didn’t think the press would understand that.” Former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris also called for a national mask mandate as the coronavirus pandemic continues during a joint campaign event Thursday, which Trump may comment on during his briefing. During Wednesday’s briefing, Trump promised a massive cut to the federal budget, but later that night, a senior White House official confirmed to Fox News’ John Roberts that the president would not be attempting to kill the main funding mechanism for Medical and Social Security.   Watch above, via The White House.

    DENVER (CBS4)– Protesters gathered outside Denver Mayor Michael Hancock’s news conference on coronavirus on Wednesday morning. They chanted “Stop the sweeps” so loudly that people inside the meeting could barely hear the update. (credit: CBS) Hancock discussed Denver’s reopening amid the coronavirus pandemic, along with other issues like increasing testing, continuing to wear face masks and concerns with those experiencing homelessness. The mayor’s update quickly turned into a discussion about another public health issue – homeless encampments. (credit: CBS) Those protesting believe the City of Denver isn’t doing enough to address the health issues concerning those who have set up tent cities across Denver, claiming that making them move actually makes their risk for coronavirus worse. The encampment at 13th and Clarkson has become quite large in recent weeks and residents of that part of the Capitol Hill neighborhood are concerned about safety and health risks associated with the camp at Morey Middle School. (credit: CBS) Hancock said the homeless sweeps happen because the City can’t allow people to live in those unsafe conditions which is a public health threat...
    After video surfaced allegedly showing a group of Chicago police officers “lounging” in a congressman’s office as looters ransacked nearby businesses, Mayor Lori Lightfoot called it an “embarrassment” and pledged to identify the individuals and hold them accountable. Lightfoot displayed still images, said be to taken from the video, at a news conference Thursday, standing alongside Rep. Bobby Rush, whose office was where the incident happened. She said the images show the individuals taking a break in Rush’s office while small businesses were looted and burned -- and while their fellow officers were outside “getting bottles thrown at their heads” by rioters. “That’s a personal embarrassment to me,” Lightfoot told Rush during her remarks. “I’m sorry that you and your staff even had to deal with this incredible indignity.” Chicago police did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment, but the department’s official Twitter account retweeted the livestream of Lightfoot’s news conference Thursday afternoon. Rush said his campaign offices had been burglarized at the beginning of June, during protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody...
