For John, BLUF: The Donald could not exist without the President and the Press. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This item from Ms Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist pretty much sums up the current situation with regard to Mr Donald Trump.
"When It Comes To Donald Trump, I Hate Everyone". Here is the sub-headline.
I hate Donald Trump, people who love Donald Trump, people who hate Donald Trump, and media who cover Donald Trump.Looking at those who hate Trump she has this:
The media, powerful corporate lobbyists, and the Democratic Party wanted something over the will of the voters. Perhaps Obamacare was the most dramatic legislative example, but time and again elite institutions extend their giant middle fingers to people, running roughshod over them. The size and scope of government grows through an administrative state that is evermore confusing and complex. We tell people they can keep their doctors, when they can’t. Courts gratuitously rule against the people. At some point you can’t be surprised when people are just fed up with playing the game according to rules always working against them.And, she seems to especially hate the "media who cover Donald Trump". They accuse Mr Trump of being dishonest and are themselves dishonest.
If you hate Trump, that’s fine. But have the decency to hate other deserving people, too.
