President Trump’s video town hall on Fox News last night from the Lincoln Memorial had former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau lamenting that President Trump has a grand total of one media outlet at his disposal:
Watching this Trump/Fox interview: I can’t imagine being in a political party that has an entire propaganda network at its disposal.
Do GOP staffers even prepare their bosses for Fox interviews?? No hard questions. No gotchas. No follow-ups. Nothing even remotely challenging.

Er, who wants to tell him?
Imagine being this self delusional.

Right?! It’s hard to imagine Republicans having only ONE TV network sympathetic toward them while the Democratic party enjoys at least 5 TV networks, PLUS all newspapers, magazines, social media platforms, academia and Hollywood actively pushing out its propaganda! https://t.co/gjFbeirhZj

REMINDER: Leftism is a religion of domination. They want everything. They own 95% of the television news, and all they see is the 5% they can’t control.
And they see the networks they do control and the 5% of content that isn’t outright campaigning for Democrats, bothers them. https://t.co/sjCaJp5Kcd

I cannot imagine the irony deficiency required for a member of the Obama White House to tweet "I can’t imagine being in a political party that has an entire propaganda network at its disposal." https://t.co/L8jmuM8Xex

Having any remaining bits of self-awareness surgically removed must have been a requirement in order to work in the Obama White House.
Ah yes, remember when Obama was subjected to hard-hitting press questions like…"what do you think Republicans will be sipping and saying next year?" Or "what hard things do you want to tackle at this point?" Or "are you ready to call yourself the comeback kid?" https://t.co/dzC2XIAKe0

And remember the “what’s enchanted you the most” question for Obama?

Yea, under the Obama administration, it was the entire media complex at the President’s disposal. https://t.co/XrU3uPV2iQ

Really?? You couldn’t imaging having (cnn) an entire news organization dedicated to your party? That’s pretty rich

Favreau’s competing with Ben Rhodes for the most facepalm-worthy take of the day.
