Twitter SAVAGES Reporters Sucking Up To Trump At Ridiculous Mar-a-Lago Party (TWEETS)

Over the weekend, President-elect Donald Trump posed with several reporters at a holiday party hosted at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Mediaite reports that quite a few well-known journalists such as CNN’s Jeremy Diamond, NBC News’ Hallie Jackson, and Politico co-founder Mike Allen, were in attendance at Trump’s private party, where they had an opportunity to engage in off-the-record chats with the president-elect.

At some point during the evening, Allen posted a photo of Trump posing with the journalists in attendance on his Twitter account. In the caption, he described Trump as “relaxed and chatty.”

However, as you can imagine, Allen’s post did not go over very well with many in the Twitter community.

While it’s understandable that the press would want to build some sort of rapport with the incoming president, Trump represents a unique challenge. He stands firmly against the First Amendment unless he or one of his supporters are exercising it. He’s also done more damage to the reputation of the free press than any other U.S. president.

In other words, his agenda is crystal clear. He wants to replace journalism with propaganda, replacing objective journalism with sources like Breitbart, Fox News, and Alex Jones. Unfortunately, he’s been more than successful convincing a large chunk of the U.S. population that his word is gospel and everything else is “fake news.”

For a journalist to smile and pose for pictures with Trump may be a necessary evil to facilitate mainstream press access to the president.

However, it’s a double-edged sword because it also lends legitimacy to a man intent on destroying the very ideals the people in that photograph have dedicated their lives to.

There is a real concern that the “normalization of Trump” is adding fuel to the continued rise of violence and white supremacist ideals.

Are people on Twitter overreacting sounding the alarm? Time will tell.
