Donald Trump starts the morning by proposing to throw the media out of the White House

Donald Trump floats a simple proposal to start the morning.

It’s a very neat equation. Anything negative about Trump is automatically “Fake.” So rather than have Sarah Huckabee Sanders run out every day and face, you know, questions … wouldn’t it be simpler to just take away the media’s credentials? Except, of course, for Fox News and select alt-right websites. Free up some space for the Enquirer.

Considering the facts only beginning to spill out about Michael Cohen and the millions that “Essential Consulting”—a company with no advertising, no web site, no office, no employees, no product—somehow managed to pull in from Russian oligarchs, foreign corporations, and American companies with business before the Trump White House, this would seem like the ideal time to bring down the Trump Curtain.

Or better yet, in the interest of getting out all the non-fake news about the Cohen situation, please send Rudy Giuliani out to explain why people were paying that money to Cohen and where it was getting “funneled.” He could even start with a visit to Sean Hannity.

In the meantime, Sarah Huckabee Sanders will continue to produce the “best information available.” By which she means lies. And this seems like a day that’s going to require enough of that “best information” that the reporters should wear hip waders to the briefing room.
