Liberal journalists took eight years off during Obama’s presidency. They didn’t ask him tough questions and they acted like guard dogs when anyone else tried to do so.
Now, under President Trump, they think they’re so important that the future of the country depends on them being able to ask Trump tough questions. He keeps going around them and it’s driving them bonkers.
At a press conference with Benjamin Netanyahu this week, Trump took questions from conservative news outlets and the liberal media freaked out.

Angry ABC in ‘Open Hostility’ at Trump for ‘Shutting Down’ Free Speech
The journalists at ABC on Wednesday erupted in “open hostility” to Donald Trump, accusing the President of “shutting down part of the First Amendment” by not calling on network reporters at a press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Jon Karl, Cecilia Vega and Matt Dowd repeatedly whined about the “conservative” questioners who were chosen, lamenting that the preferred narrative of the liberal media wasn’t highlighted.
In the post-press conference coverage, Vega ranted, “I want to tell you about the open hostility right here in this room. You know, I’m sitting right here kind of in the middle of the pack of a number of journalists, mainstream reporters, if you will, and there is open anger in here about the fact the President did not take any real questions about the issue of the day.” …
ABC analyst Dowd increased the hyperbole, stating that Trump was dismantling the First Amendment:
This is two democracies, two important democracies in the world and basically the President of the United States is shutting down part of the First Amendment by not taking certain questions that are going to be any way antagonistic.

Now compare that to the questions Obama got over the years:
And these people want us to take them seriously now?
Who do they think they’re kidding?
