Donald Trump's first press conference as President-elect (and first since July) was on January 11th, and it was a bizarre spectacle. The theater of the absurd was complete with a terrifying verbal accosting of CNN reporter Jim Acosta, an intermission with a lawyer who had to explain things for Trump, and full prop table.

The PEOTUS called the press conference to address the conflicts of interest inherent with assuming office while keeping his businesses, and it turns out, he isn't really going to.

Having said that the proof was in the folders, people were naturally intrigued to find out what was inside.

And it looks like...nothing at all.

He literally had people go to Staples or unload all the printers in Trump Tower. He thought this would work.

The apparent stunt seems strange and misguided to begin with.

And there's more! According to Politico, Trump also apparently brought in a fake audience to applaud as he blasted the media!

It's like when your friend is in a sh*tty play they make you go and applaud to make them seem popular and try to get others to do the same.

He also lied about a whole bunch of things, like the unemployment rate, his "lack of" dealings in Russia, and the Carrier deal.

While he will soon sit in the Oval Office, his real seat is on a throne of lies.
