WJLA, a local ABC affiliate and the Daily Caller, a conservative online news outlet were called on but neither asked President Trump about what he planned to do about his national security adviser Michael Flynn, who has been accused of speaking to Russian authorities before Trump took office.
So of course the mainstream media jumped on President Trump like an ISIS jihadist on a goat, saying that he was choosing favorites in order to avoid being asked that question.
The New York Times reporter Peter Baker tweeted: "By handpicking reporters, Trump manages to get through a news conference without being asked about Flynn." Obviously Baker forgot to mention that all U.S. presidents handpick reporters. All presidents.
Now you can see why President Trump didn't call on The New York Times. It was a smart move and a hearty LOL.
