Wow! Donald Trump’s Media Summit Was a "Fucking Firing Squad’

From the New York Post:
Donald Trump scolded media big shots during an off-the-record Trump Tower sitdown on Monday, sources told The Post. 
“It was like a f–ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter. “Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said. 
“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added. 
A second source confirmed the fireworks. “The meeting took place in a big board room and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said. 
“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said. 
“Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room.” 
The stunned reporters tried to get a word in edgewise to discuss access to a Trump Administration. “[CBS Good Morning co-host Gayle] King did not stand up, but asked some question, ‘How do you propose we the media work with you?’

Not shedding a tear for MSM. They were horrible toward Trump 100 % of the time during the election. Surely, they can take what they have dished out. Payback is a bitch. I think he is letting them know that they need to fairly report the facts or they will totally lose access to him.

I sure hope that's how it went.

Too bad he didn't discuss 'baseball' with them.

That's a great scene. And at first I thought, well they don't deserve that.

But then I thought about it a bit more, and I realized these people know more than we know. It's pretty obvious to us that Obama and Clinton have committed Treason. So these "Journalists" are Treasonous pieces of shit too. Absolutely complicit.

Yeah, maybe they would have deserved it.
