A verbal tussle with a CNN reporter, the President-elect's denial of everything in a dossier purported to detail Trump's involvement with Russia, the claim that Congress will repeal and replace the ACA very soon, that's for starters.

Larry Mantle and guests analyze Donald Trump's first post-election news conference.

Guests:

Jesse Byrnes, associate editor for The Hill

Matthew Rosenberg, reporter for The New York Times covering intelligence and national security
