President Elect Trump, starting off on the right foot

As Trump Leaves Press Behind for Steak Dinner, Incoming Admin Already Showing Lack of Transparency


In a highly unusual move, President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday night left his Manhattan residence without notifying the reporters covering him or giving any indication of where he was going.

The maneuver seemed to deliberately limit access to the media.

So, the media that treated him first like a side-show and then when it looked like he actually had a chance, like a pariah, is distraught that he is not kissing their asses? Really? LOL!

With his Tuesday night actions, the Trump Administration is shaping up to be the least accessible to the public and the press in modern history.

It only feels that way to the press because they have been wearing blinders for the past 7 years. They have not cared what the Obama Administration has been doing. They have been too blinded by the halo they put on his head. They are singularly incurious when Democrats are involved.

A week after the election, Trump hasn't yet held a press conference, the longest any recent president has waited to speak to the press. That continues a weeks-long drought that's been going on since mid-summer, when Trump last answered questions from the press.

Funny, I don't recall this same level of angst when Hillary was not holding press conferences for dozens of weeks.

Trump has also refused to travel with the press corps since the election, a continuation of his campaign practice of flying in a separate plane from the media that covered him.

Again, good for him. He is not a Democrat President Elect. He won't get the fawning, fan-boy treatment so why should he subject himself to that? No sane person would.

The media covering the president-elect have also not yet been offered briefings on his transition efforts, which was a typical practice for past presidents that allowed the public to keep apprised of the details of the new government.

Again, why should he? So that the press can start attacking his every decision and highlight every mis-step (or just make them up when they can't find them)? The press has shown that he will not be treated fairly. Why should he go out of his way to help them?

The press have and are going out of their way to call this the "most divisive" election and a "contentious" election. The left is rioting in the streets. The left is beating up people. The left is burning down buildings and blocking traffic. THAT is what is making this divisive and contentious. Funny how when Obama won (twice!) despite how racist this country was reported to be, there were no riots, no burned down buildings, no blocked highways. You don't think that conservatives "felt bad" that the other guys won? The only difference then versus now is that then the media's (and left) guy won and now the media's (and left) gal lost. Trump is not the problem, Racism is not the problem. The left and the media are the problem.
