Newt Gingrich Positively Giddy Over Trump Maybe Kicking Journalists Out Of The White House – By Robyn Pennacchia / May 13, 2017
It is no secret Donald Trump has had a rather fraught relationship with the press. Sometimes it takes him a while to settle on which lie he’s going with, but in the meantime, the press goes and reports on lies Trump or his press secretary told earlier — or something his staff thought they’d agreed was the official lie. But in his own mind, he’d already moved on from that earlier lie, so Trump gets mad that nobody’s keeping up. Thus, on Friday, he took to Twitter and hinted he might rid himself of those troublesome press briefings entirely.
He doubled down on this later in the day in an interview on Fox, reports The New York Times:
“The firestorm touched off by the Comey firing has only reinforced the lesson Mr. Trump has usually taken away from past crises, that only one person was truly capable of defending him: the man in the mirror. It would be a “good idea” to end the daily news briefing, he told a Fox News host on Friday, suggesting that he was considering hosting his own news conferences every two weeks or so.”
