    Trump presser...BBC News...another beauty

    Does "Trump presser" mean "Trump conference"?

    And "another beauty" is the euphemism of "another b*h"?

    =--------------------
    First of all, I congratulate the BBC reporter at the Trump presser who simply said “thank you” when Trump sneered “BBC News, that's another beauty”… anyhow, BBC is saying there are multiple sources claiming Trump is compromised with these sex tapes and business deals (attempted bribery?). And of course, with such compromising intel on Trump, Trump is likely getting blackmailed by the Russians and then went all in with collaborating with them on the hacking, at least with the leaks

    I would assume that "presser" is journalistic jargon for "press conference".
    By sneeringly saying "That's another beauty", Trump was indicating that he thought very little of the question he had just been asked (whatever that was).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Or perhaps another media organization he has a low opinion of. We all know how he feels that the New York Times, Washington Post, and CNN are "overrated" and have been "very unfair" to him. So he may feel that way about the BBC as a whole if the reporter had not yet asked a question.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Sometimes you'll hear 'that's a beauty' meaning that's a good joke, but frequently used sarcastically. I would take it to mean that he was saying that the idea of BBC News (as a whole) was a joke.
