While dire situations are evident around the world, the U.S. media is fixated on destroying its president for a host of absurd reasons. Who can take the former “exemplar and champion” of democracy seriously anymore?
If Donald Trump told Michael Cohen to pay hush money to Stormy Daniels about a one-night stand a decade ago, that, says Jerome Nadler, incoming chair of House Judiciary, would be an “impeachable offense.”
This tells you what social media, cable TV and the great herd of talking heads will be consumed with for the next two years—the peccadillos and misdeeds of Trump, almost all of which occurred before being chosen as president of the United States.
“Everywhere President Trump looks,” writes The Washington Times‘s Rowan Scarborough, “there are Democrats targeting him from New York to Washington to Maryland … lawmakers, state attorneys general, opposition researchers, bureaucrats, and activist defense lawyers.
“They are aiming at Russia collusion, the Trump Organization, the Trump Foundation, a Trump hotel, Trump tax returns, Trump campaign finances, and supposed money laundering.”
