The same media, that never stood up to Donald Trump during his run to the White House, is now mad that Trump is not giving them access.
Trump spent his entire campaign trashing the media at every turn and the media continued to hand him the mic to do just that.
Yesterday, Trump traveled to the White House, but he did not allow the press to cover his visit.
Now, the press has decided to speak up.
The White House Correspondents Association president Jeff Mason released this statement: The WHCA is "deeply concerned by President-elect Donald Trump's decision to reject the practice of traveling with a 'protective pool' of reporters for his first visit to Washington since the election. In addition to breaking with decades of historical precedent and First Amendment principles, this decision could leave Americans blind about his whereabouts and well-being in the event of a national crisis... Not allowing a pool of journalists to travel with and cover the next president of the United States is unacceptable."
How could the media not see it coming?
The same media that helped in a big way push Donald Trump into the White House. The same media that covered his rallies from start to finish and gave him an open mic to bash the press. The same media that watched as Trump ruined their credibility and said nothing.
The media only cared that they were making millions of dollars and getting huge ratings.
They never looked at the end game.
Now, Trump has them on the outside looking in and that can't understand why?
Ask yourself, does Trump need the media now? Can't he just use social media to talk to the people? Why put himself through press conferences?
He can still go to Fox News at anytime. He can go on Fox and Friends, or Hannity and know he won't have to answer a single tough question.
Donald Trump has castrated the press. At this point he doesn't need them and so he's ignoring them.
Do you think the American people are going to stand up and demand that Trump let the press in?
No, because the American people don't like you, they don't trust you and they surely don't believe you.
Blame Trump all you want, who you should really be blaming is yourselves.
Time to look in the mirror gang. You made this happen. You created this.
