The fall out from media bigwigs on the receiving end of a smack down of epic proportions from President-elect Donald Trump continues, with several participants whining to The New Yorker about how mean Trump was.
Four executives who attended the off-the-record meeting are quoted without being identified and if there’s a common theme in the remarks, it may be the liberal application of f-bombs.
“I have to tell you, I am emotionally f***ing pissed,’ said one of them. “How can this not influence coverage? […] After the meeting today, though – and I am being human with you here – I think, F*** him!”
The source said it would take days to get over the experience.
“I know I am being emotional about it,” the individual said. “And I know I will get over it in a couple of days after Thanksgiving. But I really am offended. This was unprecedented. Outrageous!”
A second individual said Trump had changed little since being elected.
“He is the same kind of blustering, bluffing blowhard as he was during the campaign,” the person said.
A third attendee said Trump’s behavior was “totally inappropriate” and “f***ing outrageous,” the magazine reported.
And while Trump reportedly did not raise his voice, he was relentless in complaining about how poorly he was treated by the media, according to The New Yorker.
“It was all so Trump,” another attendee said. “He is like this all the time. He’ll freeze you out and then be nice and humble and sort of want you to like him.”
“But he truly doesn’t seem to understand the First Amendment,” the source continued. “He doesn’t. He thinks we are supposed to say what he says and that’s it.”
The feedback from the executives contradicts Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, who said the meeting had been “very cordial, candid, and honest.”
