But you're voting for someone with thin skin and has shown that he will block the press every chance he gets. So you really come off as a hypocrite bringing up such topics.

At least he does press conferences, unlike Hillary.

Which he's turned into a circus act. They're not really worth anything if you don't answer questions, you might as well not do them. But then again no one would be paying attention to him.

Oregoropa are you going to respond to Headache's comment? You said media limitations was one of the things that made Woodrow one of the worst presidents ever, but Trump is doing the exact same thing? Bit hypocritical mate

Can't respond to things where there is no response that will make sense other than admitting that the candidate is a dangerous fraud

Everyone has noticed that Hillz is rising in the polls since last Tuesday, yes?

By the time the convention rolls around it's going to be the Fall of Saigon in the GOP.

Yes, because fascists hate privately owned industries.

There is a difference between being selective of who you want at a press conference which Trump is doing and what Wilson did which was basically suspend freedom of the press and arresting journalists who didn't agree with his guidelines.

This is not the 'exact same thing' mate.

I didn't respond to Headache because it's a lazy comparison.

Trump may not want Jorge Ramos rudely disrupting a Q&A (like he did last summer) but he's not going to pass a law that would have him get arrested and imprisoned.

"Selective", that is some fabulous spin.

He's pulled credentials, he's walked out of debates, he's had journalists physically removed, and yelled at others. Not only is this not presidential, but it is absolutely a 1st amendment issue. It may not be jailing them, but removing journalists that got under your thin skin is abridging freedom of speech.

Yeah, I have to suspect that with more power won't come more responsibility, for Trump.

I assume the only reason he isn't pushing for actual legal repercussions for the press is because he doesn't yet have the power to

And It's his first Amendment right to call a reporter a sleaze. The public's trust in the media is at an all time low. What you may see as disqualifying actually endears him to John Q. Public. Just not anybody in this forum.

Yeah, if Obama called a Fox News journalist a "sleaze" you'd find it endearing eh?

But nice avoidance of the other actions

Obama said in a RollingStone interview that Fox News is destructive to America. Granted most people in this forum would agree with him. Outside this forum more people watch FNC than the other cable news outlets combined. You may call them morons but that's John Q for you.

Speaking of avoidance. How about you go first? Since you ducked my point that at least Trump has press conferences as opposed to Hillary who hasn't held a press conference in over 180 days.

Yeah that's pissweak from Hillary.

But I'm not sure you can say Trump is better because "at least he holds press conferences". They're not press conferences if only supportive media are allowed in to ask questions. That's a PR exercise, not a press conference mate.
