On Thursday, President Donald Trump held an unscheduled press conference. The purpose, it seemed, was to announce his new pick for labor secretary, Alexander Acosta, one day after Andrew Puzder withdrew his nomination for the position.

But after a minute or so of talking about Acosta, Trump launched into a nearly hour-and-a-half long rant in which he harshly criticized at the media, told a series of blatantly incorrect "facts" about how popular he was, and went off on Hillary Clinton.
