Trump Kicks Ass And Takes Names

Donald Trump’s media summit was a ‘f—ing firing squad’

It was long overdue.

From the NY Post:
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.

A second source confirmed the fireworks.
Liars. He called them all deceitful liars. They were all major media bigwigs, network top executives. And he chewed them out, insulted them.  Called them unpleasant names, this to people who surround themselves with ass kissers.

They all must be thinking along these lines, "This guy has has about 25,000 investigators and a bazillion forensic accountants he could unleash all over my organization if he wants. And he's pissed at me; plus the guy who he is appointing as Attorney General also hates my guts and his people own both Houses."

This is perhaps Trumps preemptive strike against the media blitzkrieg that they are preparing. He's letting them know that his name isn't Bush and that if they unleash their hounds on him he will respond.
Trump spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway told reporters the gathering went well.

“Excellent meetings with the top executives of the major networks,” she said during a gaggle in the lobby of Trump Tower. “Pretty unprecedented meeting we put together in two days.”
Ahh, wasn't that sweet of Kellyanne. I like the way she used "unprecedented" to describe a  future President, the most powerful man in the world, bitch slapping a group of unsavory people. About time too.

Man, I hope that's how it went.

I hope Trump told them that he is going to haul them into court every time they make shit up about him.

F ya

He doesn't really have to haul them in, just go directly after the story and liars. Court would be a last ditch, but I can see that being used fairly. Add in refusal to offer access, giving that only to real reporters, not agenda mongrels. All good.
