Mumps can also be spread by speaking in a crowded space for an extended period, or from coughing in close proximity to others.

It was a press conference like none other. US President Donald Trump denounced his critics in an unhinged media gathering yesterday, complaining that he inherited a mess, and slamming reports that his administration was constantly in touch with Russia as "fake news." Trump said he has never seen more dishonest media than the political media, and he touted his poll numbers and his election victory over Hillary Clinton. The conference lasted an hour and fifteen minutes, and is being described by some as an unprecedented moment in American political history.

Spicer appeared to be unaware that he had misstated the PM's name, continuing on about the two country's shared commitment to close cooperation in addressing challenges and problems. The Press Secretary has been mocked on social media for his numerous flubs, including a statement earlier in the month where he referred to Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull as "Malcolm Trumbull." |
