If you believed from the beginning that Donald Trump was going to “a total disaster” for journalists, you were right.

If you urged people to give Trump a chance, believing he wouldn’t be what his harshest critics said he would be, then what are you saying now?

Within hours, the Trump administration sent one powerful message to journalists and then followed it up with another.

These actions are inconsistent with what the office of the President of the United States should stand for.

These actions are consistent with a man who is out of touch with reality.

These actions are inconsistent with American norms.

These actions are consistent with a man who has disdain for a free press.

These actions are inconsistent with the First Amendment.

These actions are consistent with authoritarian rule.
