Donald Trump had what you might call a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad meeting with major news networks on Monday, and while the conversation was off the record, some participants have since leaked that the sit-down was "like a f—ing firing squad" with anchors going in thinking they would discuss "the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down."

The New Yorker reports that "in the presence of television executives and anchors, Trump whined about everything from NBC News reporter Katy Tur's coverage of him to a photograph the news network has used that shows him with a double chin. Why didn't they use 'nicer' pictures?"
