The Media Needs to Get its Shit Together

A big reason why Trump was able to rise to power so effectively was because the media spent so much time focusing on his obvious personal flaws and failed to dive deep into his actual politics. A vote for Trump was easy because his politics were simple: Make America Great Again. He didn’t need details, because who doesn’t want to make America great, and for those who don’t care about the personal stuff, attacking him on those points just made him stronger. This is Trumps greatest strength, his sleight of hand, and the media falls for it again and again.

Trumps latest focusing on the size of his inauguration crowd is no different. At the end of the day, this is really trivial crap; it does not matter how many people were at the inauguration, and it does not matter how many “alternative facts” are used to prove it. What does matter is the actions his new administration is working on, as well as the rest of the Republican party, for example:

Did you know the Republican Party is proposing a bill that the US pull out of the United Nations?

Did you know that Trump signed an executive order eliminating the rate cut for mortgage insurance for first time home buyers?

What is Trumps plan for exiting the Paris Climate Accord? 

What is Obamacare being replaced with?
