trump is a troll. we (including media) need to stop responding to his tweets seriously.

the best response is "yeah that troll. whatever."

"Trump calls for closing the border." "Trump calls for stripping media of Pulitzers."

This is TROLLING. These are TROLL statements. He says what he thinks will entertain his goon followers and own the libs.

Certainly it is gross that twitter continues to allow this abusive troll and his spawn to slander, threaten, target, harass and bully people using their platform.

But there is no need for the media to have a 45-minute panel about "whether or not Pulitzers can or should be stripped."

He's practically forgotten what he tweeted 3 minutes after he tweeted it. Why is the media still talking about it like it was a policy pronouncement from Abraham Lincoln.

1. He's a troll in both senses of the word.

He's an internet troll because he likes to stir shit with his tweets. He's also a troll in the tradition of Scandinavian folklore because he's big, ugly, stupid, dangerous and can be weakened by exposure to light.

3. Not just his tweets. His speeches. His rallies. His budget proposals. His press conferences.

Nothing he says is worth reporting if your purpose is to relay useful information. Everything he says is meaningless, because it is either untrue, or he will say the opposite five minutes later, or both.
