Donald Trump’s epic meltdown, explained
Mr. Trump as everyone knows has been under attack since he stuck his head out in the Republican primary of 2015/2016. First he was laughed at . Then his supporters were attacked as kinda lacking in university level intelligence. Former president Mr. Clinton said Trump was running a fact free campaign which today is resonating with the media as most online journalists are today writing about his near pathological fibbing. Even the Toronto Star got in on it: they had him up to 30 lies a day as they assisted us with their fact checking before he was elected president. And while in the primaries then running for president he continued to be lambasted with those literary epithets: racist and sexist.
Generally he wore whatever terms media painted him with. He is known as a liar, a sexist, a racist and because of his virulent sexism and racism and his terrible campaign style was always having a terrible week, resulting in epic meltdowns like the one reported on October 15 by Mathew Yglesias for Vox.
False news and fact checking have become a media preoccupation; again probably because as Mr. Clinton put it, Trump ran a fact free primary campaign (nice alliteration like “fat free” maybe). Another charge that sneaks into journalists’ criticism of everything Mr. Trump says is that he is illiterate which recalls the above mentioned learnedly literate journalese of media critics who habitually characterize him with their literary epithets: racist and sexist.
” Andrew Mitrovica is an award-winning investigative reporter and journalism instructor.”
who says that his fellow journalists likely feel that
“Trump.., is too profane, garish and illiterate for their delicate liking. Hence, his lies are too naked, too nasty, and too far beyond the pale.”
