    ...and it's Trump.

    So basically, in a White House where everybody if forced to compete for attention and even then Trump doesn't listen to anybody, this is the only way to get things done.

    Opinion piece from a liberal rag. We might as well be reading Infowars.

    Oh come on. Infowars? There are no aliens or Illuminati in this story.

    It's analysis. And lord knows, Trump needs analysis.

    This is all so much fun. Every day there is new fodder for the late night comedians. The latest italian addition has made it even more fun. I can not remember an administration like this before. Maybe now they are going after the Chief of staff they might lay off the AG. Did not realise Steve Bannon was such a Gymnast

    One has to wonder what this Administration will do if they had a real crisis to deal with.

    I would agree, except -- Trump does get his information from the TV. He watches hours of TV news and opinion shows every day. When he says he knows more than the generals, it's because he has absorbed hours of military punditry. When he says he knows what the people really want, it's because he's watched hours of call-in shows. He spends more time glued to the set than he does talking to any individual face to face.

    So yeah, it is far more effective to get a slot on Fox News in order to tell something to this man than it is to attempt to talk to him directly.

    :D Please don't paint the devil on the wall :eek: -- and anyway they already do have real crises to deal with, they just haven't hit the fan yet. Beyond health care, some of which debacle's effects are not immediate, the debt ceiling looks like a prize winner for the "crisis" tag in the fall if these guys cannot even get their appropriations bills setttled. We'll have continuing resolutions passed for shorter and shorter lengths of time, and at some point one of them will point to an imminent collision with the current ceiling. And Trump will tweet something distracting that day.

    And of course there is probably going to be a severe popcorn shortage in the USA. :rolleyes:

    But I know what you mean about other sorts of crises. We need Mother Nature to be kind to us this summer. And we need every head of state on the planet to have a nice summer vacation and come back still inclined more to beach reads than to social media experiences offered by our own Dear Leader.

    It's quite logical actually. Trump probably does pay attention to the TV more than a lot of his staffers. He doesn't strike me as the type to want to change or listen to bad news/advice that much.

    Technically, it's not a rag. They don't print a paper. But, thanks for playing the ad hominem game.

    I'm actually disappointed that he fired the Mooch. That guy was worth at least another week of comedy.

    Yeah but the little old ladies who watch evening news... and are revenue for the providers....

    Anyway the networks were running out of asterisks for their chyrons.

    This happened so fast it's like we could sort of think we made the whole thing up in an idle daydream.

    When Trump sits down for awhile this afternoon he'll be sad. Boxed in by a general who actually means to run the place like a boot camp, and Trump's just another recruit? Wonder if Kelly took his phone away yet.

    The Mooch was doing better in ratings. He had to go.
