Big picture: This was Trump's first press conference since winning the election, and it showed.

The shiny object: Trump again clashed with the press, calling BuzzFeed a "failing pile of garbage" and refusing to answer a question from CNN reporter Jim Acosta. That stemmed from BuzzFeed publishing an unverified dossier claiming Russia sought financial and personal leverage over Trump.

The news: Answers on his business, the Russia hacks, a name for VA Secretary, and timelines on the SCOTUS, the Mexico wall and Obamacare.
