    Re: “Pres. Trump must continue his confrontation of the media and his other critics . . . But his frank reprimands of the media must be factually correct and impeccably logical.” Judging by the results of Trump’s unorthodox news conference today, I don’t think that’s true. Trump was winging it, as usual, and still managed to put the mainstream press in its place and drive its commentators crazy while successfully countering their claim that his administration was in “turmoil”. His approval ratings continue to tick upwards. As long as both Trump and the mainstream press continue their current behavior, Trump will continue winning. This isn’t Watergate II. Trump is no Nixon.

    This is an interesting article. It starts out saying critics of President Trump claim a significant part of his support comes from "a frighteningly ignorant, bigoted, and distinctly inferior America." I agree with those critics. Clinton had it right to call them "deplorables".

    I gets interesting, though, when you point out that they portray every single decision the president makes as an outrage worthy of national protest. I had this same thought when I heard of indignation at the increased immigration enforcement. I actually think it's a good thing to enforce the laws on the books, even though I think immigration laws are really bad. I had a similar thought regarding the indignation toward the Education Secretary. I didn't see anything outrageous there.

    I agree these critics of the president are doing the country a disservice by treating every policy they disagree with as a huge outrage.

      Most of it is being pushed by the left (sorass/obobo and clintonia) because they have lost power big time...I see them as a cornered rattlesnake.

      I disagree with the rhetoric of his supporters being deplorable...most were highly educated making a distasteful decision in the hopes that at least some of the swamp we call DC would be drained.

      I also think it's a good thing that we are holding him to his promises...shoulda been doing that all along.
