Donald Trump went out for a steak dinner with his family on Tuesday and didn’t alert the media, so they freaked out and are attacking him for “Lack of Transparency.” Media analyst Mark Dice breaks down the absurdity of their claims in the video below.
Maybe he thought they had no room for dinner after swilling cafe lattés at their computers all day.
Will they next shriek their complaints that they weren’t there to breakfast with him?
“Every president and president-elect in recent memory has traveled with a pool of journalists when leaving the White House grounds. News organizations take turns serving in the small group, paying their way and sharing the material collected in the pool with the larger press corps.” (NBC, Nov. 16, 2016)
Wow, what could possibly go wrong in that kind of mass communication?
No one needs the help of Hillary Clinton-advocated “fact finders” to discover that Trump wasn’t “leaving White House grounds” but only Trump Towers, where the media constantly describes he’s “holed up” rather than just living there.
Joining in on the whiner’s club crescendo was Journo-in-a-pantsuit Brian Williams, chief anchor and managing editor of breaking news coverage for MSNBC, who returned to the wolf pack after being caught, red-handed in his 2015 lying scandals.
“President-elect Donald Trump emerged from his New York skyscraper Tuesday night for the first time in days, moving about the nation’s largest city without a pool of journalists on hand to ensure the public has knowledge of his whereabouts.”
Oh Good Heavens, who forgot to drop the Hansel and Gretel bread crumbs, making The Donald easier to find!
We the People not only know where he is, dudes and dudettes of the the press pool, but where he is going.
“The president-elect spent about two hours dining with family at the 21 Club, a restaurant a few blocks from his Trump Tower residence. Journalists were only aware that Trump was leaving home when they spotted a large motorcade pulling away from the building, including an ambulance with lights flashing. (NBC)
That would do it!
“The movement was a surprise given that Trump’s campaign had already called a “lid” – a signal to journalists that he would not be venturing out in public for the rest of the day. The practice is meant to ensure that journalists are on hand to witness, on behalf of the public, the activities of the president or president-elect, rather than relying on secondhand accounts.”
