New York Times White House reporter Maggie Haberman proved again how narcissistic journalists can be with her latest attack on President Trump.
Haberman took to Twitter Wednesday to whine about how the president’s schedule shows how he just wants to “stick it” to the White House press corps. The reporter’s problem was with a 7:30 a.m. call time on Thursday for the out of town press pool in Florida where Trump is spending the Christmas holiday.
The president left the White House Wednesday afternoon, headed to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach where he will spend Christmas with his family.
A press schedule for Thursday, Christmas Eve, was released by the White House press office and gave some information about Trump’s schedule of activities which includes “many meetings and calls.”

“As the Holiday season approaches, President Trump will continue to work tirelessly for the American people. His schedule includes many meetings and calls,” the daily guidance and press schedule read.
Reporters like Haberman were triggered by the notice.
“A way to stick it to the WH press corps he hates is a 7:30 AM call time on Christmas Eve for a currently empty public schedule,” she tweeted in response, as if Trump’s plans revolved around her and the media.

Others also joined in with puzzled comments about Trump’s actual schedule.

After receiving criticism for a “scorched earth” set of actions Mr. Trump took before going on vacation, his schedule includes an unusual note reassuring the public he’s still governing.

Jason Miller, senior adviser to the Trump 2020 re-election campaign, summed up the press reaction.
And with these 23 words, heads exploded, ice caps melted and lives were changed forever.

The president has spent the last four years battling with a contentious and back-stabbing liberal press that has gone out of its way to make him look bad at every turn. But on Wednesday, he signed the “Fallen Journalist Memorial Act.”
The memorial will “commemorate America’s commitment to a free press by honoring journalists who sacrificed their lives to that cause.”
Meanwhile, whining reporters who complained about the early call time and Trump’s schedule got an earful of well-deserved backlash on social media.
There are U.S. troops all over the world, many with young families, who will not be home for Christmas. I think the WH press corps will be okay. https://t.co/fEqfAxjkBN

Maggie and the WH press pool haven’t missed a paycheck all year and complaining about having to ‘work’ one of the simplest jobs available.

People who’ve never missed a paycheck, who spent the year lecturing people to stay home and shut up as they went broke, whining about someone having to show up to their overpaid job early is my favorite Twitter. #Caring https://t.co/lPj7Mm3MYX

I’m sure people have more difficult jobs and are away form their families for other reasons. Let’s not act like the WH press core are victims-they’ll be okay.

Is she really complaining about literally doing her job, which gives her access to the most powerful office in the world?

The ultimate example of journalists who live in the DC bubble:
They think having people show up for work at 7:30 is an insult so awful she tweets about it, expecting hugs.
