Wall Street Journal’s Dan Henninger: President Trump Taking On His Opposition Via Twitter Is Like Taking On 10,000 People In A Bar Fight

"The President will not take criticism easily, he doesn't take it lying down, he likes to crack back...the President with his twitter account does speak out to millions of people but in terms of his opposition, he is like a guy in a bar taking on 10,000 people in the bar ... there are all these other people who hate him that are on twitter... Initially, the press would get upset, they would be in a press conference with Sean Spicer, there would be crack back, they would fighting with him over being called the fake news, the fake media. I think they have come to enjoy it. I think they are using Trump now when he does this sort of thing, teeing him up as a kind of entertainment...to get ratings. They have turned him into a dancing bear because they know their audience and readers love this stuff, they are being entertained by it so they are egging Trump on, give us more, give us more, come out and perform for us. I think that is the kind of thing he has to come to grips with, he is not their dancing bear, he is the President of the United States and is in the White House because so many people agreed with him it's time to put America first again and make America great again."

(Henninger) The President will not take criticism easily, he doesn't take it lying down, he likes to crack back... he is like a guy in a bar that's in an argument, he is going to take everybody on. Here is the problem, the President with his twitter account does speak out to millions of people but in terms of his opposition, he is like a guy in a bar taking on 10,000 people in the bar in terms of not just in terms of the main stream media, there is the media, there is the television stations

(Henninger) The opposing party, there are all these other people who hate him that are on twitter

(Kilmeade) Comedians.

(Henninger) Comedians. The galaxy of people, the order of battle is so lopsided against Donald Trump I sympathize the way he wants to crack back sometimes but he puts in motion so much opposition that it kind of engulfs his presidency and pushes off the things that ought to be concentrating on. Initially, the press would get upset, they would be in a press conference with Sean Spicer, there would be crack back, they would fighting with him over being called the fake news, the fake media. I think they have come to enjoy it. I think they are using Trump now when he does this sort of thing, teeing him up as a kind of entertainment

(Kilmeade) to get ratings.

(Henninger) To get ratings. They have turned him into a dancing bear because they know their audience and readers love this stuff, they are being entertained by it so they are egging Trump on, give us more, give us more, come out and perform for us. I think that is the kind of thing he has to come to grips with, he is not their dancing bear, he is the President of the United States and is in that White House because so many people agreed with him it's time to put America first again and make America great again.
