The Media Is Failing Us

I swear to Maude the tone of the coverage of Donald Trump makes me more despondent every goddamned day. It isn't just that the political press is comprehensively failing to adequately cover Trump's authoritarianism; it's that they are seemingly gleefully reveling in the chaos. It's all just a big game starring internationally renowned reality teevee star Donald Trump as the U.S. president.

To wit:


"A Jubilant Trump Prepares for War with Mueller."


It's cool how the media just doesn't even talk about Donald Trump like he's president.

To avoid talking about how the president behaving this way HAS CONSEQUENCES FOR THE NATION.
