It’s going to be a long strange trip, these next four years — at the very least.
The immediate press reaction to President-elect Donald Trump’s press conference was classic misdirection.
Listening to CNBC and Bloomberg Radio, the conversation centered on Trump’s Putin/Russian answers, in the context of the BuzzFeed false report.
So he said it was “fake news” but these commentators spoke as if the BuzzFeed article was true and how he failed to provide evidence that he had not contact with Russia.
So it appears the knives will be out for Trump and his policies.
I don’t think Trump helps his cause by calling out some of the news organizations such as CNN as a purveyor of fake news.
This will be cited by the White House after the inauguration as to why POTUS is using Twitter to speak directly to the American people.
Some fights are not worth it, and Trump needs to put this behind him so his administration can move on with the issues at hand.
