Give ’em Hell

At last. At long, long fucking last.

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.

“The meeting took place in a big board room and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said.

“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.

“Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room.”

The stunned reporters tried to get a word in edgewise to discuss access to a Trump Administration.

Access my ass. How’s this for access: no special privileges, no WH press room, no perks, not even so much as a cheap, broken-down coffee machine. Stand out on Pennsylvania Avenue with the rest of the tourists and try shouting your ill-intentioned gotcha questions over the fence. And until you swinish propagandists can rediscover what the words journalism and reporting are actually supposed to mean, it stays that way.

THERE’S your fucking “access.”

  1. Presidents have kowtowed to the media waaaayy too much since FDR figured he could play them like violins.

    ‘Bout time someone had the cajones to stand up and call them the whores they really are!

    Journalists my fat old caboose.

  2. And if they want to follow the Pres on a visit some where, let’em buy a F*****g ticket on a commercial carrier.

  3. I couldn’t stop laughing for about half an hour when I first read about this, even though it was predictable; and it ties back into why they hated Donnie to begin with. He owed them NOTHING. Pretty hard to influence someone when you HAVE NO INFLUENCE. Some of the comments seen still send you into convulsions…
    ” well, He could have asked them to leave thru the window…”
    ” Only thing missing, was using them to demonstrate the ED-209…”

    and someone asked, boy, would have been something to be in the elevator riding down! I think I said ” yeah, the Urine Stench would be strong though….”
