      They should focus exclusively on legislation he's pushing for or getting passed, and ignore his Twitter feed. And like you say, focus on the rest of the administration and Congress and such. They do cover that a bit but it does get lost in all the fluff. Which is the point of the fluff, I'm sure.

    Exactly...stick to facts and reports on what he is doing. Good or bad...mostly bad. Stop taking the bait and burying important issues in a deluge of stupid meaningless knee-jerk responses to everything he says.


Facts are kinda pointless to his supporters though. Any negative (albeit, accurate) thing that's said about him or his policies he either brushes off as fake news, as bias, or both, and the people who elected him gobble it up.



Ironically, how many of his supporters define "fake news" is pretty much what I do not agree with. That is what it has always been for Trump but it is a major problem.

That and many know that he is lying but do not care.

Alternative facts, fake news and so on. They are pretty much a cancer to any rational discussion. We are no longer having debates on the best course leading to a given outcome. We are arguing over if a problem is even real or not.

Arguing if the fire is real with somebody while it rages around you is not a good use of time.
