10s of millions are following Trump and the number grows each day. This is far far far far higher than the viewership of the MSM and circulation of the NYTimes & WaPo.

So why does he need the Press & MSM to filter his message?

Trump officially with 20 million Twitter followers. MAGA!

The press is there to record his movements on camera for the public to see. That won't work with twitter.

So. Trump tweets "this is what I'm doing and anyone who says otherwise is lying," and everyone is supposed to just say, "okie-dokie. if that's what he says, it's good enough for me!"

I know there are a lot of people in this country who are stupid enough to think this is a good idea, but most Americans still like to have the complete story.

Annnnnnd, now we throw it back to WaldoKitty, the Queen of Fake News, to chortle about the unreliability of the press...

So Twitter replaces the press pool? Uh huh.

Have you thought about writing Trump a letter to tell him to fire his press secretary?

The MSM press is a VCR and DVDs have just been invented.

The Trumpettes don't need no stinkin' press. Or the right given to us under the First Amendment to have a free press.

They are more than happy with their hero flying off the handle and tweeting whatever comes into his head every time he gets butt-hurt about something.

Trump's tweets don't replace the press. They can do whatever they want to do. The difference is Trump doesn't have to be invited by networks to explain or defend himself. In other words, MSMS is just made irrelevant. That's what bugs them. They are no longer king makers.
