Take on our president's war on the press

The freedom of the press is under siege, our president who hasn't had very many press conferences is threatening to eliminate the near daily press briefings given by his press secretary. This is a classic example of Trump using one example, his team's inability to stay on message and conflates that with his desire to not give the press access. This is the danger of a man who overreacts, has no self control has never met a crazy thought in his mind that he hasn't said.
But we are in a place in time where this is acceptable. Trump shuns his obligations of transparency, he acts like a juvenile, he lies, he cheats and he cries about being treated unfairly. He's a ten year old shoved in a 300 pound old man's sloppy body
