Times Responds to New Trump Attack That They Will Cover News ‘Without Fear or Favor’

Donald Trump took the opportunity, in what is becoming an all-too-familiar site for our president-elect, to attack The New York Times this morning in a tweet:

The Times had reported Tuesday that Trump’s transition team is in total disarray. One result of this, according to the Times, is that “Prominent American allies were in the meantime scrambling to figure out how and when to contact Mr. Trump.”

Trump then went on a twitter rampage bragging about all the phone calls he’s taken from foreign leaders:

The Times, not feeling like fools at all, but standing by their story, has now responded

This is our president-elect, having already threatened to sue the Times and still obsessed with what the media is saying about him. Do you remember how outraged the right-wing media was when President Obama addressed Fox News’ false reporting directly? They were outraged.

Yet here is Trump not only mentioning the Times but obsessively attacking it on twitter on an almost daily basis. This is a foretaste of what we can expect over the next year, a president outraged over every slight, real or imagined.

One wonders how he will find the time to govern between unhinged tweetstorms and three days a week spent at Trump Tower.
