Hostility between Trump and media only intensifies during first year

The hostility with which President Trump and the news media regard each other has only intensified during his first year in the White House, even as the president engaged in an unprecedented level of interaction with reporters.

Mr. Trump allowed pool sprays and other events that usually would be relegated to photo ops to become impromptu press conferences. He responded to more than 500 questions from reporters during these encounters, according to a tally by The Washington Times.

His walks across the South Lawn to and from Marine One routinely become question-and-answer sessions with reporters along the rope line. He has taken questions there on 13 occasions, responding to 42 questions during a single session in October.

    Re Professor Patricia Sykes reviews:
    Don’t do it. there is no rhyme or reason to her grading. Studying for her so called quizzes (actually exams) is SO difficult. The amount of reading she assigns is unreasonable and don’t try to disagree with her in class. Save yourself the trouble. sign up for another class. In other words stfu sykes.
    Hope that kid wasn’t paid. I didn’t get paid for cutting the grass, mucking out the barn, bailing hay all day, cutting and splitting firewood weekends, etc .. and I was only 10.
