The Left's Dilemma
My liberal and Democratic friends are still foaming at the mouth about Trump, six months after the inauguration. While world leaders like France's Macron have come to terms with our election, half the voters here have not. Of course what Macron realizes is that the world is potentially a dangerous place, and what North Korea is up to is much more important than who is Trump's press secretary. It's even much more important than who Donald Jr. met with before the election.
Unfortunately, the ratings driven media would rather profit than inform. Thus, cable news is still reporting on SNL sketches, rather than threats to our security. In their mind Trump and his administration is both the enemy and their bread and butter.
I suppose what really astonishes me is the superficiality of this obsession. Trump has become the news, instead of current events. While I'll concede that Obama was cool, and Trump is not, what does that have to do with our economy or security?
