another pet peeve about the media

trump tweets some bullshit and they report, "the president believes...."

bullshit. the president said, tweeted, accused, alleged, what-have-you. this assertion that trump believes what he says is dangerously normalizing. he's projecting, lying, just spewing. what he believes is that he's always gotten away with everything all of his pathetic life and he should get away with it now. by any means, but least of these would be the truth, because he knows well that the truth will NOT set him free.

shit he tweets doesn't have to be shit he believes. they must know that by now.
