Trump Drops the Hammer on NBC Reporter: You're Worse than CNN!
This week's news has been crappy, I'm calling it. So this is a welcome distraction. Trump was talking to the press when one reporter, Peter Alexander of NBC News, asked Trump a Russia-related question (question below). That's when Trump mounted his velociraptor with the laser-shooting headgear.

Hashtag no regrets.
If the press attacks a president, it's fine for that president to fire back. No, it's not okay for a president to demand certain networks be taken off the air. It's not fair for a president to single out news for unfair legal action. But fair ball when some pushback is warranted.
