      Trump Follows up Press Conference with Bizarre Media Survey


      President Trump's press conference was a feisty and bizarre affair.

      The New York Post went so far as to call it the wildest show on earth.

      For an hour Trump sparred with the media, rejecting reports that his presidential campaign had been in contact with Russia and labeling the leaks real but the information fake.

      Moments later, Trump's campaign sent an email to his supporters imploring them to fill out a Mainstream Media Accountability Survey to defend against the media's "hit jobs."

      Did the media unfairly report on Trump's controversial travel ban?

      Does the media properly fact-check before publishing their stories?

      Was Trump's bombastic approach an effective way to, quote, "deliver our message straight to the people?"

      It's unclear what the survey is actually meant to accomplish since the questions are framed in such a subjective light.

      For example, one question asks: "Do you believe that if Republicans were obstructing Obama like Democrats are doing to President Trump, the mainstream media would attack Republicans?"

      The survey does not mention the heavy media coverage of Republicans blockage of President Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.

      For all the talk of media distrust, one member did seem to enjoy Trump's press conference.

      Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh called Trump's performance "masterful" for its improvisation and tone, declaring it "just what the doctor ordered."

      The president has since given Limbaugh a shout-out.

          If this performance, coupled with the proposal to use the National Guard to round up Mexicans, does not result in Trump falling to Nixonian levels in the polls I will have lost confidence in the American people.

              No disrespect to clowns are meant but after I read --> "Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh called Trump's performance "masterful" for its improvisation and tone, declaring it "just what the doctor ordered." --I wanted to burst out in song, with a single tear rolling down my face.

              Send in the clowns.
