    Don't disagree with you in general.
    But remember- cable news is still just TV looking for ratings. The public hasn't shown a great appetite for in depth discussions of topics- isn't Fox News the highest rated 'news' program now?
    You want in-depth discussions on serious topics? That is rarely covered by the news in any format- more likely to find that coverage either on various PBS programs or the New York Times.

    I wish he was more measured (less cringe worthy) at times and I agree...:wink_2:

    You are deliberately minimizing who Donald Trump is. He is a non Politician who is shaking the foundations of the political elite which is best thing that could have happened to this country. You are focusing on that silly Twitter thing that didn't even exist a few years ago. Now all of a sudden Media can't put together a show without analyzing a f*kn Tweet.

    This works for me, give it a try. I never go on Twitter. I focus on actions, policies, and results. I'm happy. :113:

    Are you happy with breaking kids away from their parents? Are you happy that the president is a racist? Are you happy with a president who demeans law enforcement agents for political cause?

    Donald Trump is a very, very astute politician- he is not a particularly good President- but he is a masterful politician.

    Don the Con has chosen to communicate to his followers- and even announce his agenda on Twitter.
    That by itself is not a problem- but his tweets demonstrate what a fragile little bully he is- allowing his wounded ego to influence so many of his decisions.

    This thread is not about that though- so this is my last post on Don the Con- rather than the topic- I welcome a discussion why there is not more in-depth coverage of issues.

    There’s a crisis happening in the country and the everyday person doesn’t have a clue it’s happening. Given some of the responses I’ve seen to this post, Trump haters don’t care about much of anything if it doesn’t involve hating Trump so I’m sure they’re loathe to know about the horrific reality of human trafficking and how this modern day slavery has supplied sick serial killers with an endless supply of victims.

    It’s a huge problem. People, mostly women are disappearing and in many cases no one even knows they’ve vanished. Females are dropping off the face of the earth bc they either were victimized or felt they needed to sell their body. The ones who aren’t being killed are truly suffering in every way imaginable. The murder victims of this specific populace is estimated to be in the tens of thousands in a matter of years, but I guess Trump is WAY more important than spreading
    awareness about the mess of tragedies littering the nation. While woman are suffering atrocities whilst being hunted by psychopaths, so-called “feminists” are fighting against imaginary problems related to Trump. It’s enough to make one violently ill.

    Serial killers find prostitutes easy prey: Column

    75 women have been strangled or smothered in Chicago since 2001. Most of their killers got away.
