The Trump administration brings new surprises every day and a former Canadian politician finds it shocking.

Perrin Beatty served under former Prime Ministers Joe Clark and Brian Mulroney holding many cabinet posts over his political career.

We asked him for his thoughts on how President Trump treats journalists.   

He finds it extraordinary adding the media provides a public service to help us separate fact from fiction. 

Beatty says when we denouce the media as being false and dishonest we lose something important.

He says by doing that we discredit one of the last sources to distinguish between what's true and what's not.

Beatty says at your peril you predict anything to do with President Trump.
