Spectacle - trump and the MSM

Merriam-Webster

SPECTACLE noun - spec·​ta·​cle | ˈspek-ti-kəl also -ˌti-kəl

Definition of spectacle

1a : something exhibited to view as unusual, notable, or entertaining
. . . . . .(especially : an eye-catching or dramatic public display)

b : an object of curiosity or contempt
. . . . . .(made a spectacle of herself)

to sum up: Trump is a spectacle and the media loves spectacles. I suppose these days, to the media, "regular" news is boring and doesn't generate money or an audience.

4. That is the exact word I have been using for the past two years!

I'm glad someone else sees it for what it really is.
