For a supposed enemy of the press, Trump acts oddly . . .

In his willingness to give and take with reporters. From the White House:

During today’s press conference, President Trump took 68 questions—from 35 different reporters. By contrast, former President Obama took 22 questions from 10 reporters during his press conference following the 2010 midterm elections.

CBS’ Major Garrett put it crisply: “There is more access to this president than Obama . . . We see him and interact with him and punch in questions with far more frequency.”

ABC News Political Director Rick Klein agrees, saying President Trump is “above and beyond, far and away more accessible” than our previous two presidents.

It’s something I have found obvious and striking for some time. For someone who beats up on them, he is sure good to reporters, better than others, including especially Obama, and not just in this mid-term presser business.
