Hillary Clinton held her sixth press conference in three weeks today, while Donald Trump has gone into hiding and hasn’t taken questions from reporters since July.

Sopan Deb of CBS News pointed out Trump’s dodge:

Trump is avoiding the reporters who know him best. The Republican nominee avoids the embedded press who are covering his campaign, and instead can be found hanging out on one network in particular.

Donald Trump has vanished from the Sunday public affairs programs, but he did do a taped interview for Fox News’s Media Buzz:

Trump is back to doing his weekly with Fox and Friends propaganda segment:

Trump’s consistent schedule on media is a Monday morning appearance on Fox and Friends, and Wednesday chit-chats with Fox News pal Sean Hannity. Trump does more talking about taking freedom away from the press than he does talking to the legitimate political press that has been assigned to cover his campaign.

The shift is clear. Hillary Clinton is behaving like a president by making herself available to the press, while Donald Trump is hiding from the people who know his campaign best.

The hide on Fox News tactic has become popular with Republicans who can’t handle difficult questions. Even more so than Sarah Palin, Donald Trump wilts or self-destructs when faced with any serious questioning.

It is interesting that part of Trump’s debate preparation appears to be to hide from media scrutiny. It seems like a recipe for disaster. Trump is already trying to work debate moderator Lester Holt by complaining that the debates are going to be unfair to him.

The Republican strategy for the homestretch of the presidential election is to keep Trump away from any media that might ask him a difficult question. While Hillary Clinton is behaving like a person who could be the next President Of The United States, Trump is hiding, and hoping that he can win in November by laying low and being coddled by Fox News.

It is a strategy that is destined to fail.
