“That’s such a racist question.” Trump to @Yamiche. The way Trump is treating black reporters is… whew.

I think it’s stunning and outrageous and it seems to be spiraling out of control. When I think it can’t get any worse it does. He can’t seem to tolerate being challenged or any negative press, something every President has had to endure. Those are my thoughts. https://t.co/VTmS525iwt

Our free press is under attack. We need to stick together! Walk out together next time. That would send a powerful message and remind POTUS he needs us. https://t.co/MY25GNeqhB

Could ONE reporter ONE time say to Trump when he complains the press is negative and hostile (as he's doing right now), "Sir, its because you LIE and we have to report that. Don't lie and we won't be so "negative". ONCE please?

The media is not the enemy of the people. The freedom of the press is protected by the Constitution. Presidents never enjoy pointed questions from the press, but President Trump should respect their right to ask them and respect Americans enough to answer them. https://t.co/JY3eAwX8RH

"You can't do them simultaneously, by the way. Just think, if somebody said 'Oh, you can do them,' no you can't. Cause if they're doing that, we're not doing the other, just so you understand." — Trump

Just saw the video of the president saying “didn’t want the embrace” while gloating over GOPers who lost. It was a creepy, mean-spirited thing to do, but Republicans are mad at me and Max Boot? We’ve both been a lot more graceful than the present was today. Low bar, I know.
