The liberal media has been throwing longwinded and pathetic hissy fits over their treatment by the Trump administration in recent weeks.
President Trump has never been a fan of the mainstream media, even as Candidate Trump, and now that he has assumed the role of Commander in Chief, he has been able to reign in their undue sphere of influence.
It seems also that the proverbial government apple does not fall far from the tree, as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has taken it upon himself to ban the press from his private plane. While being badgered by the writing press about his decision, Tillerson retorted with an unabashedly glorious response.
“Tillerson was asked by an IJR writer about what exactly he plans to do now that the media has been barred from the world-traveling plane — and he responded perfectly, saying: ‘I spend my time working on this airplane.’
“The Daily Caller reports:
“‘The U.S. diplomatic press corps was deeply angered when the Department of State announced it did not intend on bringing any members of the press corps aboard the secretary’s aircraft. “The State Department Correspondents’ Association is disappointed that Secretary Tillerson chose to travel this week to North Asia without a full contingent of the diplomatic press corps or even a pool reporter,” the group said in a statement.'”
“Tillerson defended his action, saying, ‘There’s this long tradition that the Secretary spends time on the plane with the press. I don’t know that I’ll do a lot of that. I’m just not … that’s not the way I tend to work. That’s not the way I tend to spend my time. I spend my time working on this airplane.’”
Many in this offshoot of the press corps were obviously accustomed to being treated a little more lightly during the old Obama days, when putting on a good face and delivering a killer sound bite were more important than governing a peaceful and prosperous nation.
