Trump has motivated me to work on my video editing skills. This is the first fruit of my labor. It basically just strings together some TV clips with some thoughts of my own intertwined.
It isn’t anything special, but I wanted to try and make a few points.
Trump definitely mocked the disabled reporter. Before his impression, he says “you’ve got to see this guy”.
Meryl Streep discussed her concerns at the Golden Globes and Trump responded on Twitter.
Instead of conducting his press conference in a way that would make Meryl Streep appear like an “out of touch liberal” who is a sore loser, he gets in a shouting match with a reporter from CNN and wouldn’t allow him a question. It’s like a kid poking you in the eye on the play ground and then running before you can react.
Trump demonstrates no humility, and I worry that he could never see himself as having done wrong. He has done nothing to bring people together and still rubs his victory in the face of others.
He shows no signs of talking less as President.
I end by drawing a comparison with Nixon who hated the media as well. Trump will have to be very careful as President as his relationship with the press is already strained.
