UPDATE: Does President Trump Really Need a White House Press Corps? Part II

A few days ago I posted a bit of heartfelt bit of fluff that advocated disbanding the White House Press Corps

The White House press corps is an anachronism.  It's is really just a throw back to the days Franklyn Roosevelt.  Admittedly that press corps had manners and knew it's damn place.  The President treated them like the pigs that they were.  He fed them scraps and kept individual pigs in suspense as to whether or not they would be going to the slaughterhouse.
Now the pig thinks it is the equal or better of the swineherd and feels quite entitled to tell him how good he is at...well not just pig keeping, the modern press sow thinks it's an expert on everything.
Mister President Elect...Throw the pigs out.  
When newspapers were the only game in town they were needful.  You had to use the press to get your word out.  Your word would be filtered, augmented and criticized but it would more or less get out there.

Now it won't in any serious way.

Your word will be spun, folded and mutilated which means it is all pointless. 
President Elect Trump you will face a kind of resistance that Bush could only dream of, there is no point in treating your devout enemies as your dearest friends.
You simply don't need them.

I am now wondering if someone on Team Trump reads the Dark Herald.

From the the NY Post.

Donald Trump scolded media big shots during an off-the-record Trump Tower sitdown on Monday, sources told The Post.

“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. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added.

A second source confirmed the fireworks.

“The meeting took place in a big board room and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said.

“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. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.

“Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room.”

The stunned reporters tried to get a word in edgewise to discuss access to a Trump Administration.
This a rainbow unicorn farting out winged kittens so far as I'm concerned. They need him waaaaay more than he needs them and in their deepest and most terrified little hearts...they know it.

Trump should not only not give them an inch back.

He should smile to them each morning, grab their cheeks and tell them how beautiful they are...

While he gets ready, and sharpens the legislative tools to dispatch of them.
