Trump's ability to drive the news needs to be countered. Now.

He'll have the nightly news people with him on Thursday as he visits the border. He'll have his skin head buddies backing him up, literally.

Armed Services or some such congressional committee needs to immediately hold hearings about Border security and the role fencing and walls might play. The hearings need to be open and on TV. Now.

Depending on people to feel bad about people not getting paid and losing their jobs is not going to work. The GOP and Trump do not care about people. Those that might care will be looking to the Democrats to cave in order to get them back to work.

The visuals are key, and a hearing with experts explaining how ridiculous a border wall would be as opposed to more up to date methods could get the conversation back to some grounded reality.

I'm not that optimistic about where this wall fight is heading.

1. We need to stop watching the coverage. We need to make the networks lose money.

5. Yes. There needs to be a national boycott #TurnoffTrump'sLies

Until the MSM stops airing his lies, looping his lies, quoting his lies, soft pedaling (i.e. "discussing" his lies), and
video suckering the public with clips of his lies, our only recourse is to simply turn it off.

3. I was thinking about this today..why

not a campaign to news networks to stop leading every hour with the latest Rump fiasco..each host should begin with a story about what the democrats are doing, then go into the Rump story. I really am so tired of every hour leading with another Rump story. Put him on the back burner now!

4. turn it off and tell them why

Trump's record of lying is clear. TV keeps giving him a free megaphone to spread his lies, just as they did in the primaries to catapult that unfit, vicious, liar to the front.
