There were fireworks at the Trump Tower on Monday, and that was inside the building.
As we previously reported, a number of TV news executives and personalities, from CNN’s Jeff Zucker and Wolf Blitzer to CBS’s Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King, gathered at Trump Tower in Manhattan on Monday to — they thought — talk to president–elect Donald Trump about “the access they would get to the Trump administration,’ the New York Post reports, adding, “but instead [the TV news executives and personalities] got a Trump-style dressing down.”
The story says, “‘It was like a f–ing firing squad,’ one source said of the encounter. ‘Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said “I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,” the source said. ‘The meeting was a total disaster’….”
A second source told the Post, “Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars.”
Notes the Post, “Trump spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway told reporters the gathering went well. ‘Excellent meetings with the top executives of the major networks,’ she said during a gaggle in the lobby of Trump Tower. ‘Pretty unprecedented meeting we put together in two days.’”
