A BBC reporter said it so well:

Quote:
He (Trump) has shown time and time again that he views politics as performance art; another reality television competition where the more drama and conflict there is, the better.

Candidate Trump belittled his Republican opponents - Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and company - then shrugged it off as part of the game. He turned Hillary Clinton, whom he had once praised and buddied around with at his wedding, into a "crooked" caricature who should be shipped off to prison.

He portrayed the media, and CNN in particular, as cartoon villains that he can rhetorically beat into submission.

The "box" IS NOT IMAGINARY.

This is what you don't get.

Here on DTT we are nobodies. We can call names, we can post silly pictures, we can be as big an asshole as we want and in the end it means nothing.

People all over the internet can do the same.

But we are talking about the freaking President of the United States. This man is supposed to represent the best this country has to offer. When other people in other countries see our President they are supposed to think that this is what we aspire to be. This is the primary duty of the President.

This part of the job is harder than it has ever been. With 24/7 news channels. A world where everyone is carrying a connection to almost every other person on the planet in their pocket. Maintaining the "air" of Presidential decorum is harder than ever. But that is part of the job!

Trump doesn't even try! His hard core followers APPLAUD him when he fails at it. We are so fucked.

This fucker IS an embarrassment !!!!!

You know there was a meme of Bush asking people if they missed him yet ?? I have to say he was light years ahead of this fucking narcissistic moron.
We had an embarrassment in the White House for 8-years (Obimbo), and we're still trying to recover. When a news organization (supposedly) is caught in successive lies they are "fake-news" and should be treated accordingly. Trump's humorous video pretty much summed up what most people think of CNN. To the Lefties he's an embarrassment but, for the rest of us he's a breath of fresh air. Freedom of the press is a two-way street. When journalistic integrity has lost all notions of objectivity, those being attacked have every right to respond in kind.

AMEN!! Great post....but there's more and I find it extremely troubling. This has become a JOKE to Trump's base. They find his juvenile behavior/antics entertaining and simply don't give a damn. In fact, their reactions (like we've seen here on DTT) have created a pom squad.
The presidency is no longer considered serious business or ANY business. It has become team sports, fantasy football, the World Series of laughs. The competitions thrive on how often the president can shock, stun, astonish, cartwheel, spin, confuse. It's professional wrestling and we all know the rules: they can be changed, disregarded, made up on the spot or broken at any time.

That's problem number 1. Problem number 2 is that even though Trump still appeals to his base, Trump isn't even TRYING to pull in Independents or others who were disillusioned during the campaign--the 50% who didn't vote. To me, that demonstrates a disturbing reality: "I don't give a crap about you."

When did we become a country where the president flagrantly disregards 50-75% of the country/voters?? We should be reminded that Trump got 26-27% of the votes and THOSE are his base. What about the rest of us??

The fact that Trump felt this was necessary or appropriate is the issue. The RW bitched and moaned about how Clinton and his dalliance with Lewinsky brought a the office of the President to a new low (and I agree) but now want to ignore (or worse, praise) Trump for all the shit he's done since being in office is just the highest order of hypocrisy. This is THE WORST level of hypocrisy in American politics that I have ever witnessed.
Oh wow you are a real piece of work, what about the childish antics of the left and the Russia B.S that he had to spend time on? I think what he is doing is awesome. He is responding and showing the people that he will not sit back and let the left try to define his Presidency with their lies.

Are you seriously stating that he carried 37 states and only 26-27% of the vote?

What childish antics of the left?? Do you mean our first amendment rights? Our shame at the antics of our President? Our disgust at those who (like you) are thrilled at his behavior...mostly because it upsets us.
The Russia B.S.?? Are you referring to their meddling in our elections? Or the investigations that are on-going?
AND you think Trump is doing an awesome job? WHY? Because he's acting like a petulant spoiled brat? That's awesome?? Would you have said the same thing if Obama acted like that?

You are right about ONE thing. Trump has defined his presidency--after five LONG months--the Trump presidency is the mockery of the entire world.
