[Redacted]'s Presser: The Media Has GOT to do Better




I admit it, I had fun watching. I was fascinated. I couldn't believe what an ass he was making of himself.

But then, I already KNOW what a threat to civilization Captain Chaos represents. I'm not "his" audience.

And little by little, I began to notice what WASN'T getting asked.

No questions about getting us sucked into war in Syria.

No questions about emoluments.

Nothing about the future of the >Redacted< Foundation in the state of NY.

Nothing about the effects of trade and immigration policy on agricultural businesses.

Nothing about the manifest incompetence and lack of qualifications among so many of his staff and appointees.

Nothing about the $9/million per month travel costs the taxpayers are picking up for his family members (as opposed to $10 million a YEAR for Obama.)

Nothing about the ACA and what his Administration is doing to work with Congressional #GOP on their vaunted "replacement" plan.

No one pressed him for details on the "jam tomorrow" tax plan that's gonna be 'so tremendous.'

Instead, the media got rope-a-doped into discussing their second-favorite topic: themselves. And their relationship with the Administration.

And he had that shit-eating grin, poking a stick into their cage, making them look like a bunch of yappy little dogs at the dog pound.

Seriously, media. I am disappointed.

Y'all have GOT to do better. The stakes are too high to get suckered like this.

irritatedly,
Bright

4. What about the whole thing that happened in Florida

last weekend? That was pretty sketchy! I'd like to learn more about that.

Keeping track of all of this is starting to feel like a full time job!

5. Or the role of the State Dept and Tillerson in foreign policy with NSC in disarray.

Especially since >redacted< nixed Abrams, and there seem to be NO pending appointments at the deputy level...

Sheesh, I can't believe how many important balls the media dropped while they were chasing the ones Captain Chaos threw to distract them.

frustratedly,
Bright
