    They're free to ask, he is free to answer however. And ya, they are [ussies pay] who will say that to uncle Joe but won't to Trump because he might say something that gets his fans to act. The independence of the press doesn't compel anyone to respond the way the press wants.

    I want tough questions but gotcha questions or softballs is all we seem to get anymore.

    I’m having a hard time buying that the press is afraid of Trump. They’ve been ripping him to shreds ever since he came down that escalator.

    Some might be hesitant to get into a back and forth with him, because few are going to be able to handle that.

    The press doesn't want to get in a battle of one liners with him, but if they're say they're "scared of his people" they're just shit stirring chickenshits.

    To his face, they are in my opinion. That's all it is, I may just think they don't ask him the right (substantive) questions either.

    Trump drags people into a shit talking contest and he's great at those, I agree

    But that’s them being afraid of immediate humiliation, not the eventual retaliation of nutjob followers. If that were a valid concern, there’d already be bodies everywhere.

    I didn't say killed. There are many people who have been harassed and had their lives upturned by overzealous folks. Those two ladies in GA sued and won over it, for example. But a journalist would have to just eat it.
