On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” columnist Charles Krauthammer stated that the media coverage of the reported disarray in President-Elect Donald Trump’s transition is “remarkably over the top.”

Krauthammer said, [relevant remarks begin 2:45] “I think the coverage is slightly over the top. In fact, it’s remarkably over the top. First of all,…historically, there’s nothing unusual about not having made an announcement after one week and one day. Second, the Trump campaign has been described as in disarray since about January, and he won the election. third, I don’t think there’s any question that if we come to Inauguration Day and we don’t have, say, a Secretary of Commerce nominated, the foundations of the republic will not be threatened.”
