Podcast: Tension Escalates Between The Press And The President

White House Correspondent Sarah Westwood and Senior Writer Mary Katherine Ham recap Donald Trump’s marathon of press conference on Federalist Radio.


Sarah Westwood, White House correspondent at the Washington Examiner, joined Mary Katharine Ham on Federalist Radio to give some insight into the White House briefing room and media groupthink. They recap Trump’s attack of the media in Thursday’s press conference and how he addressed the few policy questions that were asked.

“I think the press underestimates how little they are liked and trusted, and how much people enjoy watching them get a little bit of their own medicine,” Ham said.

Westwood explained how Sean Spicer has broken press conference protocol and why members of the media are upset. “It’s had the effect of changing up the kinds of questions we see in the briefing room, which is whatever the trending topic is that day,” she said.
