Trump Describes The New York Times With One Simple Word

The latest round of White House staff shake-up stories has prompted a change in how President Trump’s team handles the media, shifting away from engaging in issue debates with reporters to a blunt yes-no approach.

Insiders said it is driven by Trump who was angered by a New York Times story predicting a staff shake-up that included dumping spokesman Sean Spicer. It was headlined: Looking Like a Liar or a Fool: What It Means to Work for Trump.

“Fuck the New York Times,” Trump said. “They’re not our friends. We’re never going to win them over,” he added, according to a Trump insider.

The change was most notably seen in Spicer’s latest White House briefings. Where he used to battle with reporters, he shifted to saying little beyond policy statements. For example, in a short eight-minute Air Force One gaggle, he referred to earlier statements six times.

The news is scripted and censored. The days of investigative reporting is gone. The reporters of today are nothing but teleprompter readers and tabloid idiots. If any of them ever had an original thought, it died of loneliness.

They should take all their pens and pencils away form the press. Give them crayons so they don’t harm themselves or the Grownups in charge.

Some of those SO CALLED reporters haven’t got enough brains to pour piss out of their boots. To listen to their questions is more like listening to six year olds at best. How in the world they keep their jobs is beyond me.

They should cancel the live press briefing and email them a bullitin with the news once a week and let them chew on that To sit and watch the snarkey reporters asking Shaun the same questions over and over hoping to get the answer they want is insulting and exasperating. They don’t deserve the courtesy of their own briefing room in my white house. It’s 90% fake news anyway and the other ten percent is a litany of insults to the president and his family..
