Presidential historians please take note: the 45th president of the United States felt the most insulting way to end his message to the nation was to criticize Morning Joe as a ‘bad show’.
Alternative fact: this is the most brilliant marketing campaign that MSNBC has ever conceived in its 20-year history.
It has become acceptable in the media to question Trump’s attachment to the facts or to assert that this isn’t normal.
These are polite euphemisms.
Trump isn’t abnormal: he’s behaving like he’s untethered from reality.
The effects extend far beyond the fate of the Trump presidency and the reputations of all who work for him.
