People were curious as to what the president is so sure the news is lying about.
From Puerto Rico to Rex Tillerson to the tragic mass shooting in Las Vegas, it’s hard to keep up with which story the president is even accusing the media of making up. And how airing footage of his visits to victims is some kind of lie.
It seems like maybe he just doesn't like to see footage of himself?
For a man who has never, ever worked as a politician before, and now holds the most difficult political job in the country, he has seemingly no patience for being considered less than perfect at this. He seems to think it’s the fault of the news media that selling condos is easier than giving an inspiring speech to a hurricane ravaged country.
It honestly just seems like he wants to turn the cameras off.
Being president requires being able to show up and provide comfort and leadership on camera to people experiencing a tragedy on a moment’s notice. It’s not an easy thing to do, especially for someone who’s never done it before, so it seems like Trump’s number one priority is getting rid of that whole part of it.
Some disagree that Trump is doing a good job at this.
The president claims he is sober, having had a brother who was an alcoholic. While it’s hard to know if anything he says is real, it’s safe to say that if it is, he might be missing out on the best way to avoid reality: dulling it with chemicals.
Others are embracing the tv show style presidency.
Like it or not, the president is a reality TV star. Which is probably part of the reason he hates reality so much. Reality has very poor production values and very little story to it. So Donald’s war might just be about wanting to make reality more… watchable?
But that wasn’t all…
