Could people stop hyperventilating every time Trump does something stupid and odious that he is fiendishly deflecting from something else, also stupid and odious, he did? Because he’s not.
a) Trump is lurching from crisis to crisis. He and he and his Administration are currently a raging dumpster fire.
b) Deflecting from something horrible by doing something horrible is not a long-term strategy for success.
c) Everything Trump does needs to be attacked. Attacking on one front doesn’t mean attacks on other fronts have stopped or lessened.
d) Saying this is somehow a super-devious scheme on Trump’s part grants him way too much undeserved power.
Continue fighting, we’re winning.
