The press still doesn’t get Donald Trump. He’ll say something outrageous and when challenged, he will reinforce whatever he said. The press will make that a headline: “Trump Doubles Down On . . . .”
Why is this news? When has Trump ever backed down? It’s as if the press is asking, “Can you believe the stuff this guy is saying?” Really? The real question is, “Can you believe the press is still falling for Trump’s moves?”
Trump’s goal is to dominate the headlines. Giving him a headline for doubling down on a previous outrageous statement just makes his job easier – he doesn’t have to come up with a new one.
This is all the evidence you need to see that the press is still Trump’s bitch.
