President Trump’s war against the media is going full nuclear. On Thursday, he really laid down the gauntlet and blasted the media to an almost unrecoverable degree. How will this relationship recover?
It was heinous.

See that. What kind of monster have we elected that would treat the media thusly?
Just watched tRump enter AF ONE…it didn't even turn around and wave to the people and staff on the ground. First time since JFK.

Of course, Twitter took a moment to point out how ridiculous the whole episode really was.
Someday, I hope our fragile republic can recover from the indignity of Trump's failure to wave from Air Force One, or something.

How will the country survive?
We’re entering dark days, America. Who knows what other atrocities against the media’s sacrosanct traditions Trump might desecrate next.
