Trump Administration May Evict the Press from the White House

We knew it would happen.

According to three senior officials on the transition team, a plan to evict the press corps from the White House is under serious consideration by the incoming Trump Administration. If the plan goes through, one of the officials said, the media will be removed from the cozy confines of the White House press room, where it has worked for several decades. Members of the press will be relocated to the White House Conference Center—near Lafayette Square—or to a space in the Old Executive Office Building, next door to the White House.

"They are the opposition party," a senior official says. "I want 'em out of the building. We are taking back the press room."

1. He needs a room for his special parties with the rubber sheets.

I expect Vladdie will show up before Valentines Day with the hookers and blow.

2. Put them in a basement

or whatever S&M dungeon he decides to build there. That way they're more comfortable while they go fuck themselves.

3. They forget who they work for

This ain't a dictatorship as much as Trump would like it to be.

5. You have to go by what Kellyanne Conway said

"We owe you goons nothing."

That's the opinion they have of the press and you can expect them to act accordingly.

12. Trump only owes the presidency to them. IF they hadn't given him hours and hours of free time,

he would not be where he is today.

6. This is blatant fascism

you know he's going to try to make a two-tier press. The very fact that members of the press are considered the "opposition party" is itself blatantly corrupt, especially considering the way that both CNN and yes MSNBC have tried to move to the right in this campaign.

I do not think they would be so blatantly stupid as to give Fox News the comfortable chairs. No why think Trump plan to do is to go ahead and skip the media altogether and deal directly with Breitbart and twitter on the Internet. This will make things very easy for Trump as it means that he will have less chances to get in front of cameras and look stupid.

8. Maybe this will make them get off the computers and do some real journalism. Their hero has kicked

to the curb and they are scratching their heads about what to do. The POS is a dictator and maybe now their reporting will reflect that.

11. Maybe they will start to actually act like the opposition party now. Wouldn't that be refreshing??

13. How long will that last when we the people start circulating

more lies than he and Brietbart can keep up with.

We'll have him and his wife in bed with hookers and animals peeing on each other until he will WANT to get it straightened out, he will need the press.
We can make up better fake news than Breitbart.

Let's make that fake news go viral.
