Point One: Who is your president now? He looks, sounds and acts like the president. What's Obama doing today? Probably golfing.
Point Two: Has any other president elect made such a statement at this point in the transition process?
Point Three: He is making this on Youtube, not on the main stream media. Already, he is setting the ground rules for bypassing the MSM filter, which Reagan was a master of, and which served him very well. Given the MSM's clear prejudice, this is exactly what he should do. If he pulls this off, he will show the way for every other politician. The MSM has to be frightened by this, as it hits them square in the jaw ( note, I'm avoiding the obvious joke here - give me some credit!).
Point Four: He is telling the MSM, to their face, that it's war. Props to Breitbart for saying this truth so early on. There will be no nuance, no pointy headed analysis, no commentary. He's going direct to the man and woman at home, sitting on their sofa, wanting to know what the heck the new guy is going to do.
Maybe this has something to do with it. War! They are his prisoners and it's the firing squad for them.
"Donald Trump scolded media big shots during an off-the-record Trump Tower sitdown on Monday, sources told The Post."
“It was like a f–ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.
“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.
“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added.
“Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room.”
The American people were tired of nice guys like Romney and McCain, and hired a brawler. But a smart one. They got what they wanted with Trump, and more.
