From the Hill:
“He still needs us more than we need him,” Lemon said of Trump’s strategy with the media.
"Listen, I’m not a news executive. But if I were, I would say I would not cover his tweets.”
Lemon said doing so would lead Trump to hold a formal press conference, because “he hates being ignored.”
Trump, who has not held a press conference since July, has used Twitter since his election to announce Cabinet nominations, make foreign policy pronouncements and attack Democrats and the media.President Trump destroyed that bromide this year.
He does not need the press. He won without them.
The tail is trying to wag the Big Dog.
President Trump is in no danger of being ignored. He is the president of the United States, the leader of the free world, and the most powerful human on Earth.
In July, he stopped courting the press when he realized they were a hindrance to his campaign. He no longer needed them to get his message across.
President Trump won despite 90% of the stories about him being negative, many of them Fake News.
President Trump won despite John Podesta rigging the debates. Does anyone really think Anderson Cooper or Martha Raddatz were not willingly coached?
President Trump won despite all the fixed media polls.
The media failed the American people this year by turning into an open propaganda machine that misled and misinformed the public.
For the past year-and-a-half, almost all the press has viewed President Trump and many of his supporters as deplorable.
President Trump should not reward Don Lemon and those like him with his time.
