Having talked to many people in the field including my husband. This is the deal here.
They filmed him alone and added the press afterwards. Then composites the whole thing, sloppily I might add. The idea was to hide the obvious green screen superimposition of the mics with the Newsroom banner that is always at the bottom of the screen. Except the hill got the raw footage abd does not use banners. I am also pretty convinced that is not what he actually said because no one walks to a microphone to say "not at the monent" fool you might as well just keep walking to your helicopter ride.
