Trump vs Media.. One important consequence..

It appears to all of us, that Trump spends a whole lot of time dealing with the "fake media." Someone reports this, then he has to tweet that. The media criticizes him on something, then a response that is equal or stronger needs to be made by Trump. Since there is lots of criticism, (it goes with the job) there needs to be lots of tweets and responses.

Trump seems to be spending a whole lot of time tweeting and responding to criticism of the press and his critics. That is very obvious. What is important is that the time he spends doing this, and being mad about this, could be spent dealing with problems, learning about problems, and coming up with solutions to potential problems. Problems that the country is facing, or could be facing. This in my opinion is far more important than tweeting and responding to critics.

1. I LIKE him being distracted & doing nothing.

Any policy he came up with would be very destructive, there is no problem he would not make infinitely worse just by his hate filled gaze. What you wrote would be very true of any normal person, but drumpf is light years away from that. He's a force for destruction, division and theft, that is all he does is hurt us, hurt democracy and hurt the world. I wish he'd go to sleep for the rest of his term, that is the only time we're safe.

3. Unfortunately, he and his minions are doing quite a lot. All damaging, of course.

It's not just the *many* judicial appointments. It's not just the tax scam. As a Rolling Stone article from late last year put it, "And, for all his high-profile legislative belly flops, since assuming office nearly a year ago hes managed to do an incredible amount of damage to the environment, health, education, civil and labor rights entirely outside of Congress."

It's only gotten worse since then. There's now talk, for instance, of rolling back protections for coal miners and endangered species.

Oh yeah, there's also that whole turning the global order upside down thing. And a massive, massive amount of corruption.

2. He's a moron

He defers to his Republican handlers to make policy. He just throws poop at the walls and watches TV.
