O’Reilly: Not Since Nixon Has the Press Been ‘So Determined to Bring Someone Down’ http://bit.ly/2jFVIAd  (VIDEO)

Well the incoming Trump administration is certainly giving themselves a head start on their way to being the most corrupt and least ethical. Check this from a Politico piece:

It was clear Trump won’t be turning over his tax returns, at least not soon (“The only ones who care about my tax returns are the reporters”). He won’t be putting his assets or company into a blind trust (“I have a no-conflict-of-interest provision as president”). He won’t condemn Vladimir Putin (“If Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset, not a liability”). He will begin building a wall with Mexico as fast as he can, even if Mexico isn’t paying for it at first (“What’s the difference? I want to get the wall started”).

Plus, foreign governments will stay at his hotels and pay big bucks in violation of the Constitution.

What else do we expect the press to do? Trump is giving the media a gold-plated invitation to investigate his activities.

Give it some time. Sooner or later even the GOP is going to get fed up with his act and won’t come to his defense. Give it some time.  He is asking for it.

Jeff Bagwell walked 1,401 times as a ‘Stro, Craig Biggio 1,160 and Lance Berkman 1,040 of course.
