Sean Spicer: Media Lack ‘Respect’ For New President

Sean Spicer, a top aide to Donald Trump, this week accused reporters covering the president-elect of failing to “treat him with the respect he deserves.”

MSN noted that Spicer, a strategist for the Republican National Committee, is in line to become the next president’s White House press secretary. He told The Hill that the media have ridiculed Trump since the real-estate mogul announced his presidential bid.

“There’s some positive aspects here and there, but largely it still continues to not treat him with the respect that he deserves,” Spicer said. “I think for a lot of folks inside the beltway, and inside pundit-world, they don’t fully appreciate the understanding that he has of where the American people are. They continue to mock him in ways, when it frankly just shows the lack of understanding of that they have of where the American people are and what they think.”

The spokesman’s comments reflected Trump’s ongoing war of words with the media. Throughout his campaign, the president-elect taunted reporters by calling them “unfair” and “dishonest.” With Spicer as his press secretary, Trump apparently has no plans to make peace with major newspapers and television networks.

As evidence of his disdain for the media, the president-elect had not held a press conference in more than five months until Wednesday’s scheduled question-and-answer session with reporters.
