“There’s been a lot of talk in the media about the responsibility to hold Donald Trump accountable,” Sean Spicer said. “And I’m here to tell you that it goes two ways. We’re going to hold the press accountable, as well.”
The first war under Trump’s presidency is with the press and it’s escalating. It’s not just floating the idea that the White House pressroom may move. It’s not just last week’s pre-inaugural press conference where Trump labeled Buzzfeed and CNN “fake media.”
It’s not just his latest tweets criticizing celebrities who don’t like him, or dismissing the millions of women (and men) who marched to protest his presidency on Saturday (Jan 21).
These incidents all raise a serious question: what’s going to happen to the First Amendment with a bully in the pulpit?
