Ingraham: Trump Press Briefing Remark 'Part of Cat-And-Mouse Game' With Media
Laura Ingraham said President Trump's remark about possibly curtailing daily press briefings is the latest volley in his cat-and-mouse game with the media.
Ingraham, a conservative radio host and founder of "LifeZette," added that eliminating daily press briefings and replacing them with sporadic presidential pressers would be a dream come true for the media.
"It's part of this cat-and-mouse game. This is what he does with people," she said.
Ingraham said the remark, made to Judge Jeanine Pirro ahead of her interview with the president on Saturday, should put the media on their heels.
"Americans [will] say 'that sounds like a great idea!'," she said.

She added that the press should be "celebrating" such a move - if it were to happen - because of the high ratings the major networks received when covering then-candidate Trump's public remarks.
"Getting Trump out there every two weeks would be a dream [for them]," she said.
