Looking the US media, it's all about Trump. The man's just a bloody nuisance of the highest order.


How do you attribute the nuisance to Trump?

I think the media is annoying, for going on and on and on and on about Trump. First hes faking that hes fine. Then hes faking that hes working while he has Covid. Then when he drives around smiling and waving, hes a mad man because he could make the driver sick. Then he looks short of breath after climbing a flight of stairs... and is also putting the white house residents at risk.... even though you won't spread Covid when you don't have symptoms.

74 year old man gets Covid. Beats it in 3 days while still working. Thats definitely a ground breaking story. But the media makes it out to be a billion times worse than it actually is. Sadly, thats how media makes money. Fake news, sells.

Is it really Trumps fault, that he couldn't even fart loudly without the media making a big fuss about it?

That man has worked about as much as he's paid taxes.
PS Scribbling a big fat signature with a big fat crayon on a blank sheet of paper isn't work for the CEO of a corporation, let alone the chief executive of a nation in crisis. (Neither is offering big fat virus-laden kisses to everyone.)
Yes, Trump has faked/does fake pretty much everything he's supposed to have done/be doing - except harm.

Yes. He's wheedled and bribed and blustered and ranted his way in front every camera he possibly could, for decades.
But also : Yes, the media have fallen for it more than they ever should have. But they can't be faulted for reporting on the man with his big fat demented finger on the nuclear button.

The facts, the matters of public record, speak for themselves. Let me quote Max Boot, a conservative and former Republican on the nuisance in chief:

Trump is on track to be the first president since World War II to see a net loss of jobs during his term. Even worse, he has presided over the loss of 214,000 lives and counting from covid-19. That’s already nearly four times the U.S. fatalities in the Vietnam War, previously the nadir of presidential bungling. Even now, after having contracted covid-19 himself, Trump refuses to take the pandemic seriously. He keeps promising it will magically disappear of its own accord while holding rallies practically guaranteed to spread the disease.

As if that weren’t reason enough to vote for Biden, there is also the fact that Trump has abused his power; he was even impeached for doing so. He has trafficked in racism and xenophobia. He has incited violence. He has kowtowed to dictators and trashed our alliances. He has welcomed Russian attacks on our elections. He has locked children in cages. He has called for his opponents to be locked up. In sum, Trump has made a strong case that he is the worst president in our history...

Fact checking, not opinion pieces, can also amply prove that he has lied at least 20,000 times to the American people, that he has championed ruinous environmental policies, made thousands of slanderous attacks on people of integrity, made crude and misogynistic attacks on women, undermined the research of dedicated scientists, attempted to subvert our nation's postal system to suppress votes, and violated the constitutional separation of powers.

Boot asks a good question.
