Open Thread: Donald Trump Does Thing. Whatever.
Another day, another chapter in the misadventures of our MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL president, Donald Trump. What did this day bring? Well, it is a video, that he tweeted, of him wrestling the CNN logo to the ground.
Sure, why not.
Now, people are doing the whole "Oh, he's promoting violence against the news media!" thing with this. And sure. Fine. What else is new? But what we really have to consider here is who even made this video? Obviously it was not Donald Trump. Certainly he couldn't get it together to do that himself. So he had to like, go to someone else and ask them to make this video for him, and then that person was like "Yes, in no way is this a bad idea. I will get right on that!" Which either means that this person really hates him, or is just as ridiculous and exhausting as he is.
It is probably the latter, as according to a report from The Washington Post, everyone else in the White House thinks this war with the media is him doing some form of "winning," but that they'd prefer he focus said war efforts on his feud with CNN:
Some White House advisers said they were frustrated that the Brzezinski feud — which continued to unfurl throughout the day Friday with accusations and counteraccusations — overtook the president’s fight with CNN, which seemed in their eyes to have clearer villains and heroes.
We're pretty sure the Mika Brzezinski feud had VERY CLEAR heroes and villains. Just not the ones they wanted.
All theories are welcome, in this, your OPEN THREAD.
