(autoplay at link) In Trump’s America people who want to know what the president wants them to think he is up to will have to subscribe to TrumpTV.
Where is President-elect Donald Trump? That was the question for much of Thursday during Trump’s first visit to Washington, D.C., as president-elect.
Trump and his aides refused to allow reporters to travel with him to D.C. Thursday, breaking decades of traditional press protocol and setting a frightening precedent for coverage of his administration.
“We are not being provided any information or access by the Trump transition — they are not even responding to emails from me — so I will forward information that the White House is providing that is of interest,” a reporter from Politico, functioning as Trump’s “protective print pool,” wrote Thursday morning.
Get used to it. (That’s protective press pool, in case anyone is wondering.)
The White House Correspondents’ Association criticized the move, saying such a decision could “leave Americans blind” in the event of a national crisis.
I assume leaving Americans blind is the idea. How else are they going to get away with all of the scams?
