And stop repeating his propaganda ,and attacks , and outlandish statements he uses to redirect attention with. I turn the channel when they show him , or his statements, or twits. I refuse to watch any programs that continue to do this.

Is the talking heads at Fox News can’t get trump to hang up the phone, when they want him to go away.

It’s about time!!!! Trump has used these tricks until the entire political forum has been done by tweets. They are short bites that feed extremism. The media has made a god out of this petty little man and it is past time for them to stop carrying water for him.

The tweets should have been wholly ignored except to discuss as a part of a larger story. Instead we get to hear them parrot his stupid daily. I know the guy was "elected" president, but seeing what he was about should have been enough for the media to slam on the breaks. His tweets have never been fit for consumption by anybody in the general public. Nobody except the certifiably insane and the willfully moronic. Trump is an internet troll come to life and ignoring him would have gone a long way towards legitimizing him from the start.

Since when are the ravings of a drooling lunatic treated as respectable news? Let the PM cable news shows have printed quotes available if anybody is interested; otherwise, let trump continue playing with his own shit at the White House until he's removed.

Might be the best way to shut him tf up, and stop the distractions and gaslighting.

Too bad they couldn't see a few years back, but I'll take now. Trump lives for a news cycle, don't give it to him. 99 percent of his tweets are bull crap, and I have never read them because I'm not missing anything.
