Jake Tapper: Trump Presser an Airing of Grievances, It Was Festivus

‘He talked about Jim Acosta more than he talked about Alexander Acosta’

Jake Tapper: Trump Presser An Airing Of Grievances, It Was Festivus (RealClearPolitics)

JAKE TAPPER: He talked about Jim Acosta more than he talked about Alexander Acosta. He talked about Hillary Clinton more than he talked about Alexander Acosta. He spent the first part of his remarks talking about accomplishments that he thought the media, the fake media, whatever he wants to call us, were not paying enough attention to. But then instead of focusing on his accomplishments and offering an optimistic, positive view of what he's doing for this country, it was an airing of grievances. It was Festivus. It was complaints about the media. At one point he said, 'the leaks are real, but the news is fake,' which doesn't make any sense whatsoever.
