Trump Speaks to the Times

He’s bellowed about “Fake News” and pointed out the chief culprit, the New York Times. Yet, for some inexplicable reason, Donald Trump just sat down with a number of the Times’ henchmen and gave them an interview.

Even moreso he talked some dirt on supporters, notably Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Trump, sadly, does not seem to brook any disagreement with him; even from major supporters.

Trump doesn’t grasp that Sessions is an interface between Trump and Washington’s denizens. He’s the one telling those people that Trump isn’t that bad and that they should work with him.

Trump just played into the ogre stereotype Washingtonians and the New York to Boston corridor have of him.

What does Trump get from speaking to the Times? They are not going to let up on their undermining and peddling of leaks and lies. He’s a fool if he thinks they’ll change their stripes over this favor. Why give them more ammunition?

He should freeze them out. Render the millers of Fake News irrelevant. How better to make the meisters of Fake News obsolete than to ignore them? Now he’s just fed the trolls…

Now expect a sit-down with the WaPoo and then a round with CNN and the network news…

Mr. Trump, you’ve wanted your supporters to ignore the MSM and those attacking you, we’ve done that. Now we see you having lunch with them? What gives?

Pitching your disappointment in Sessions to members of the cabal seeking your scalp seems a little odd. It looks like what many expected of Trump – if elected he’d revert back to being a northeastern liberal and disappoint those who got him into the White House.

Trump demands loyalty yet seems to have little himself. Jeff Sessions’s endorsement of Donald Trump was the single most important endorsement Trump received. It was the one that made Trump palatable for many conservatives and a lot of Republican leaders and soldiers.

Had Sessions not endorsed him, he would not be president.

I have to say that I am a little disappointed in Trump over this move.
