For the second time in a week, president-elect Donald Trump has abandoned precedent and traveled without the "press pool," a small group of journalists assigned to cover his movements. The move Tuesday night has spurred a strong backlash.

"It is unacceptable for the next president of the United States to travel without a regular pool to record his movements and inform the public about his whereabouts," the White House Correspondents Association said in response."
A.k.a. “ Lying Leeches”.
One can only imagine how incensed they’ll be when they find out Nerd Prom’s been called off.
Unacceptable to you. His supporters couldn't give a rat's a** that he left behind a gang of tools who worked in such a biased manner for his defeat in the election.
What about all the things that Obortion O did without the press pool?
Apparently there is no one in the Media who realizes that running against them is one of the reason Trump won.
LOL! Wassa matter gang? No free lunch?
Parasites. They belong outside in the cold. Their days of ‘power’ are over................................
Screw em. They tried to screw you. The Media just lies anyway Trump doesn’t need them. I LOVE WINNING!
He said he wasn’t going to telegraph his plans.
Like he cares what the MSM thinks of him.
He’s not going to get kid gloves treatment from them no matter what he does or doesn’t do.
Trump relishes nothing better than showing them how insignificant they are.
there. fixed it.
They really expect Trump to keep treating them like a bunch of privileged characters, don’t they? Not to worry. If there’s news, Steve Bannon will make sure it gets reported. :-)
Hitlery didn’t have a press conference in what, 289 days, and not a word written about that?
I hope he does this 2-3x/ week, from now on. Get the lib scumbags used to it.
To whom? The attention whores in Big Media?
To hell with 'em.
Because its critically important that reporters watch exactly how Donald Trump eats a steak.
The press hasn’t intentionally done him any favors, why should he do them any?
Obama Breaks Protocol Leaving White House Without Press Corps
Published April 10, 2010
WASHINGTON President Barack Obama quietly breached years of protocol on Saturday morning by leaving the White House without the press with him.
About two hours before reporters were supposed to be in position to leave with the president, Obama left the grounds of the White House. Members of the press were told he was attending one of his daughters soccer games in northwest Washington, D.C.
The White House press corps traditionally travels with the president anywhere he goes, inside and outside the country, to report on the presidents activities for the benefit of informing the public and for historical record.
After Obama left, a press aide hastily gathered members of the media who happened to be at the White House early or working on other matters. They rushed to a van and left the White House to catch up with the president.
Too late. By the time, the press van appeared to arrive at the presidents location, the press was told he was already departing. Time to go back to the White House.
Reporters and photographers didnt have a chance to see him or his vehicle to verify his presence at any location.
Although nobody outside the White House or the press may have noticed, Obama broke years of tradition.
