    If God Forbid I was on his staff, I would recommend he not have press conferences, because he sounds like an asshole when he speaks. But the idea that he is accessible is quite fantastic.
    Maybe in America press conferences have gone the way of policy papers.

    Trump is trying to modernize the joint.

    And after Obama and Hillary....

    Trump is an Angel.

    Somehow I don't think you're going to be able to convince too many about that, even though it may very well be true.

    I'm wondering in what kind of America press conferences and policy papers are a bad thing, but being a juvenile on twitter is a good thing? Modernize the joint? Have all modern people lost the ability to express a thought or expect a cogent answer to a question?

    These Trump fans will forgive anything, SAD.

    Government accountability to the free press is a cornerstone of democracy. It comes as no surprise that you are glad it has gone.

    No it's because the big baby can't answer questions correctly.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    He’s also more accessible than any modern president, Page said. That not only means in talking to reporters but giving daily windows into his temperament of the moment via those mercurial tweets.

    Politico:
    https://www.politico.com/story/2017/...porters-243845
    Jonathan Karl, the ABC White House reporter, had a surprising comment after Monday’s impromptu press conference by President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: “I have probably had more opportunities to ask questions of President Trump over the past two weeks than I had of President Obama during the last two years of his presidency.”

    Another idiotic thread about a dishonest media outlet about the minutia that nobody cares about.

    Trump is much more accessible to the press and thus to the people because he wants to be, because he is better.

    OH yes, CNN makes up stories about Trump not holding End of the Year Press Conferences. You are doing yourself a disservice if you actually believe that.

    Just because he is accessible does not mean is he telling the truth AKA answering questions properly.
