I do not know why the White House reporters are complacent when Trump makes a statement that is

hypercritical or false during question and answers. For an example, today Trump talking about immigration an chain migration why didn't anyone say, Mr. President you are against chain migration but that's exactly the way your in-laws are able to reside in this country. Are you saying that they should leave? And also before you married you wife she entered the country illegally twice. When Trump said he is under audit why don't they follow up on the question by saying Mr. President, every Presidential candidate has release his or her tax returns since 1968 and you have been saying since 2016 that you are under audit, when your former personal lawyer asked you for a letter to prove that to the public before the election you could not produce one. Can you clear up this issue today by just releasing the letter from the IRS to show the American people that you are truly under audit?

8. Now that is what I am talking about

 

Want to win back some of the lower educated voters? Then we need to get tough.

Joe six pack has to fill out tons of forms for everything. They will have no sympathy for the orange shit stain having to release taxes.

2. Because you have to show the office of the pResident respect...

 

if you don't, he might start releasing stupid cartoons of Joe Biden on Twitter or something even more idiotic.

3. Because he won't give a straight answer, then he'll retaliate.

Like he did with Jim Acosta. It doesn't matter that it didn't work, the point is to make their lives difficult.

6. exactly. the integrity of the media then is a function of the integrity of the white house.

if the white house treats all reporters fairly and doesn't retaliate against tough questioning, then they will ask the tough questions.
which is pretty much what happens when democrats are in the white house.

when republicans are in the white house (and donnie fraud has turn it up to 11), they do retaliate, so reporters quickly learn to throw softballs and let someone else at the paper write an editorial if they feel someone has to be critical. then again, donnie fraud sometimes even retaliates for *that*....

9. Excellent points.

In theory, the media should operate with integrity. FOX, not really being a news outlet, is the exception.

7. Also his first wife was here illegally too, probably-

And was not a citizen when the Scions were born.

Plus of course he has hired (and stiffed) dozens of undocumented workers, clearly preferring them to citizen workers.

Not that his koolaid drinkers care about him being hypocritical.
