Isn't it time for the press to stop covering Trump? let FOX have all the fun. Send only one.

Never cover another Trump rally or presser. Just send on person (pool person). The view of an empty room would send a start message to the nation and the world. Trump can only perform for an audience. Stop giving him the audience. Cover the news coming from WH using Trump's tweets.

and want to have camera there. Maybe they should have one camera, one camera person, and no reporters there. Only meltdowns would make the news.

If Sanders or Trump refused to answer the previous reporter.

They would say they answered it and be politely called out for lying.

And asked the question again.

while IQ45 is focused solely on playing cat and mouse. The WH press is not be fake, and to get that designation from a news organization is a plum prize and the reason it is NOT fake. They have risen above thousands of colleagues...not going to give that privilege up any time soon.

Kind of like...What would happen if a press conference were called and nobody came? Sadly, they are all in the same game. For a strike to happen, you need a union of some kind.

They need to stop hanging onto his every inane utterance. If no-one any pays attention he will hopefully stop the entire farce. He's not worth covering.....treat him like the 2-year old that he truly is; ignore his little fits of tantrum. Please.
