LOL! Well this will certainly improve his media coverage!

Ask Nixon what is the one thing he would have done differently.

This is why people feel he is similar to Hitler. A truly self-confident honest US leader would not be encouraging such unAmerican juvenile behavior from the pitiful GOP. But Hitler would be proud.

Trump and his cabal are destroying the USA.
Hillary lost, Trump won. Get over it and find a new hobby instead of wallowing in self pity.

Trump Allies Target Journalists Over Coverage Deemed Hostile to White House
By Kenneth P. Vogel and Jeremy W. Peters

A loose network of conservative operatives allied with the White House is pursuing what they say will be an aggressive operation to discredit news organizations deemed hostile to President Trump by publicizing damaging information about journalists.

Why not? If every single thing someone else has said or done in their entire life is fair game for them to report why should they not be subjected to the same?

Well, then they can investigate the investigators and so on and so forth. And it's never ending. Most of us aren't subject to the scrutiny of a president, Senator, or Governor.

Where was the gnashing of teeth and hand wringing when the Obama administration was spying on journalists?

You are correct - Trump has a 1st Amendment right to express his opinion but he is treading on thin ice. The American people are not dumb and if he starts attacking the journalists on a personal level they will see it for what it is, someone acting like a tyrant rather than a leader. They will only take so much of his unprofessional conduct.

All Presidents have hated the press because it is always critical of the President. Despite what is said here, this has been true of Democrat and Republicans. The press hounded the hell out of LBJ. The better leaders roll with the punches. The wanna-be tyrants try retribution but it tends to backfire.

Whatever happens I have faith in the American people to see what is going on.

The media has tremendous power I would suggest a journalist falls into that category.

Oh come on, even people in the media will admit Obama was treated with kid gloves above and beyond the typical bias afforded Democrats.
