    Fixed that for you.

    The MSM brought this on themselves. They sold fiction and half-truths right up to the Hillabeast's defeat, and now they attack the POTUS for everything.

    The funny thing is, should Trump actually do something terrible it will likely go unnoticed as the press has cried 'wolf' far too many times.

    And you have something backwards: its not that Trump supporters hate the press, it is that people who hate the press have flocked to Trump.

    And the media refuses to learn.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

      It's just that he's choosing the wrong battlegrounds; inauguration turnout, voter fraud, ...

      This results in media which otherwise be neutral thinking that he's an idiot, making them less inclined to believe anything he says, and more inclined to be blunt in saying that he's lied to the public.

        'Fraud in large amount has yet to be proven.

        Why is it so important to him, he was elected.

        Is it to hard for him to believe that Clinton won the popular vote?

        Same goes for the crowd at the inauguration.

        Doesn't he get the idea that a lot of people didn't vote for him. That many don't like him and enough the despise him? He isn't acting very mature if these things are taking up so much of his and his staff's time. He is now the President. What more does his personality need, wedding rings a declarations of unending love?

            Well what's worse for Trump is that the media doesn't have to do anything but sit back and report the news, letting his own words - and those same pictures - stand on their own.

            It's not even a case of them handing him the rope to hang himself: he's happy to braid it together himself.

              Journalists aren't lamenting these developments at all. They have a president railing against them when they feel they have a pretty unassailable position. He's feeding them more content while painting himself into a corner. If the media was bringing this onto themselves, then they're going to be more than happy to keep doing it in the future: they want four years of Trump acting like this.

                Putting multiple agencies into a media blackout, barring them from issuing any press releases or other updates to the public, all while lashing out against the media in general will not bode well imo. He lost the popular vote to one of the worst politicians of our time, there's a lot riding on his performance here.
                The vast majority of Americans will vote for their candidate of choice, regardless of what they say or do. That is a universal truth for the American political scene: liberals and conservatives are both motivated, first and foremost, by whatever badge a politcian wears on their lapel
