Trumps succeeds in changing the frame
At press conference, Trump successfully used two anti-Trump memes, "fake news" and "Nazis" in a way that effectively neutralized them.

I tweeted that after Trump’s press conference.
I was reading through Scott Adams’ blog this morning, and came across his post about Trump’s use of “Nazis” to describe the intelligence agencies, and I see that he agrees with me, although his blog post is full of mumbo jumbo about “3D persuasion.”
Since Wednesday, in the mainstream media there was outrage about how Trump dared to call our patriotic intelligence agencies “Nazis,” even though liberals themselves used to call the CIA Nazis.
Yes, remember a time when liberals loved Russia and hated the CIA? How that has reversed!
Also, we see that the mainstream media has gone cold turkey on using the term “fake news,” a term they fell in love with two months ago because they thought that by using it they reduced Trump’s legitimacy.

Hopefully, the next step in Trump’s reframing will be to turn the word “racism” against the liberals.
