At the Washington Post, Callum Borchers calls Trump's kvetching about the media unrealistic and out of touch. He argues Trump is being scrutinized just as much as any leader of the free world should be. Of course the press doesn't cover the president the same way they cover a game show host or real estate magnate.
For three decades, Trump was covered through various soft-focused lenses: reality TV star, beauty pageant owner, football team owner, golf course developer, professional big talker....How could anyone be truly surprised that the president or a major-party nominee for president would have to go through the media wringer?
While 90 percent does sound high, the president's detractors say he deserves it. What has he done to warrant positive coverage?
When you give your kids White House jobs, fly to your private golf course every weekend, fire the FBI director who is investigating you, and then give away security secrets to Russian spies? Your media coverage is generally not going to be positive.
#SpecialCounsel Trump says no president has been treated worse or more unfairly. That's because no president has ever behaved this badly.
