If you've never seen The American President it was written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Rob Reiner. It's a political movie with a romantic comedy subplot as the President in the above clip had to finally address his Republican rival for the presidency as there was a looming presidential election in this film.
Basically his romantic comedy subplot became an issue. President Andrew Shepherd played by Michael Douglas was taken by this beautiful environmental lobbyist in Sydney Ellen Wade played by Annette Benning. After a rather tough meeting where he somewhat intimidates her playfully he figured out how to ask her on a date. He wanted her as his date to the state dinner with the President of France - who was not at the time of the film's release in November 1995 Jacques Chirac.
So the public is taken with the idea that America's bachelor president who was also a single father is actually dating. People start taking positions as to whether or not a president should be having "relations" with a woman in the White House. The Republicans seize upon the president's girlfriends activist past. Hell there are newspaper clippings of her presiding over a flag burning.
So when Shepherd arrives in the White House Press Room he had lost Sydney and other aspects of his agenda is going up in smoke. Seemingly the Republicans have him on the ropes until he gives this briefing to the press resetting the agenda. For many years Shepherd was the Democratic president that I wished we had instead of President Bill Clinton who did have relations allegedly in the White House (and I don't know all the details but the name Lewinsky sadly will always be connected with him).
