Calling them the English equivalent of "Lugenpresse", aligning millions against them, narrowing down the whitelist to a tiny handful of handpicked far right brownshirted brown-nosers and then demanding that the intel community perform as an ad hoc Ministry of Truth, why that's a surefire way to go about it, by cracky!

PS: Just what IS IT you have against the Fourth Estate EDUCATING people?

Kind of like what Breitbart, Infowars and Fox News have done for the right

The basic problem with a Trump presidency is that he thinks he can do it the same way he runs a business -- giving orders, secrecy of operations and total control. I doubt he has the temperament necessary for politics.

And not even a real business where there are constraints and protocols but a family business where one guy calls all the shots and sends his family members out as emissaries to get his decisions implemented.
And no, he hasn't got the temperament or mindset to run a huge bureaucracy.

Is it too soon to call this social experiment that CONservatives have foisted onto America, a failure? coffee

I think Flynn was just the first act of the intelligence community in retaliation for Trump attacking them. I think it may be repeated many times. Just goes to show you: Don't screw with the spooks. They are 1000 times better at it than a dope like Trump and they probably have dirt on every one in his administration.

Now several of his nominees have failed or dropped out of the confirmation process even with a sympathetic Republican majority in the Senate. Think Trump just picked really bad nominees? Or did the spooks leaked information to selected Senators?

Trump has a penchant for making enemies of what should be friends.
