Take on the White House's freedom from the press

You know you've lost the high ground when China mocks your government's lack of freedom of the press. Today our executive branch started their attempt to break one of the cores pillars of our democracy, the press keeping our government accountable. But Trump, a psychopath who used to call tabloids disguised as his own press secretary, doesn't feel like he needs to be held accountable to anybody. Today they cut CNN, The New York Times, Politico and The Los Angeles Times out of a gaggle with Sean Spicer which I've never heard of before today but sounds about as much fun as having a threesome with Sean Spicer and Mellisa McCarthy, but still it reeks more than the aftermath of that threesome would. Punishing the press for pushing too hard is Nixonian but with a guy who, unlike Tricky Dick, loves the spotlight, it's that much more odd. Trump has always believed that all press is good press, but I guess when that press is coming close to revealing that you are Putin's cabin boy, you better start fighting

Wasn't it only the LA Times/USC poll that consistently had Trump leading over Clinton in all the pre-election polls? I'm surprised that Trump has forgotten that.

Actually, I'm not surprised. That dude has the attention span and accurate memory recall of a gnat with ADD.
