This may be a sign of things to come. The media’s coverage of Trump has been awful so far. And it looks like it’s going to get worse. This report is so dumb.
As Trump Leaves Press Behind for Steak Dinner, Incoming Admin Already Showing Lack of Transparency
In a highly unusual move, President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday night left his Manhattan residence without notifying the reporters covering him or giving any indication of where he was going.
The maneuver seemed to deliberately limit access to the media.
The only way the press eventually ascertained his whereabouts was after a Bloomberg reporter, who happened to be dining at the 21 Club, tweeted a photo of Trump and some of his transition team in the Midtown steakhouse.
Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks later told NBC News. “He is having dinner with his family.”
This came after Hicks had told his press pool the day had ended, and the only indication of his departure was an unannounced motorcade. Trump’s communications team did not respond to emails from the pooler requesting guidance.
With his Tuesday night actions, the Trump Administration is shaping up to be the least accessible to the public and the press in modern history.
The press learned nothing from the election.
They have become a parody of themselves.
And of course, they had no problem in 2008 when Obama did the same thing.
With no scheduled public appearances Obama has done his best to avoid the traveling press corps and the dozens of local media members, paparazzi and others trying to snap a photo or shake the hand of the man who will be President.
Where were the calls for transparency then?
Hypocrisy, thy name is Media!
