If you listen to the media whine, you’d think President Trump was over at the National Archives snipping the First Amendment out of the Constitution so that he could flush it down a toilet back at the White House.
And yet, and yet. Why do the navel-gazing media never report that this is by far the most accessible president in modern history? He even exceeds Bill Clinton, whom I covered, and who was constantly in search of attention, particularly in the waning days of his presidency when he knew it would soon be over.
Not only did CNN’s Jim Acosta, who was correctly thrown out of the White House for not being able to obey simple rules of decorum, permitted to ask three questions at Tuesday’s briefing. But both the Washington Post, which is relentlessly biased against Trump in its coverage of the president and Politico, which is just a little less relentlessly biased in is its coverage of the president, got exclusive interviews with Trump.
Meantime, he pretty much never steps outside the door of the White House without answering reporters’ questions. Never seen anything like it. Not to mention a lengthy press conference earlier this month with dozens of questions.
First Amendment seems pretty safe, despite all the bitching and moaning.
