Who would have guessed this, eh?

The press hasn’t been kind to Donald Trump—and that isn’t its job. That job is to cover the news in a fair manner. But as the Columbia Journalism Review reported in October, campaign-finance disclosures show that those who work in journalism gave $396,000 to the presidential campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Mr. Trump, with more than 96% going to Mrs. Clinton.

    “He’ll soon find that one of the most entrenched forces that object to any change affecting them is the White House press corps.”

    And if they’d been paying attention instead of giving Obama an 8 year long blow job they’d know that Trump doesn’t give a fuck about them.

  3. “He’ll soon find that one of the most entrenched forces that object to any change affecting them is the White House press corps. As last week’s meetings with the media showed, a clash is coming.”

    How many divisions does the White House press corps have?

    The public wants to know what the President is up to. If he tweets/YouTube’s what he’s up to, that’s the problem solved. What are the Press Corps adding to that? Sure, they’re going to hate that people will just follow Trump or get updates via The Hicksville Post twitter as quickly as WaPo and NYT, but what can they do about it? Write nasty articles? Is that going to make any difference?

  4. Ah ,but look at the diligent & ceaseless work they did, on Trump’s behalf, to get him elected. You couldn’t buy support like that, But if you did? $1b+?

  5. The White House press corps (with a terminal ‘e’ to be added in due course) badly needs Milo Thingy to be hired to brief them. Badly.

  6. May I suggest that press briefings be given in the garden (with the White House Press Secretary wearing a nice Canadian or Siberian coat in winter months?
    [I have a nice coat, bought in Siberia, made in Canada, for wear in Siberian winters – for the last decade I’ve used once a year when acting as a marshal in my club’s cross-country race]
