125. Media should act in unison

but they won't. I mean, Fox, of course, will be up Trump's butt regardless. But the rest of the media, the real media, should just stay away. By ignoring his tweets. By ignoring his speeches, or just giving a summary of them when reporting:

"Trump, in Michigan today, gave his usual speech about invaders from Central America, about the love he shares with Kim and Putin, and also made the same baseless and absurd allegations he's always made about voter fraud, Hillary's emails, and blah, blah, blah. The mostly passive audience began drifting away before he was 2 thirds of the way through the speech which consisted of all his usual bromides, caveats, persiflage, and self-praise."

That would suffice because it is an apt description of every damned ranting-monologue Trump has given in every venue since he launched his first campaign for the Presidency. And it would give the real media the time to focus on the baby jails in southern Texas, the tax fraud Trump and his family are guilty of, the criminal acts of the right wing, pro-fascist governments in Europe and Brazil, the phenomenon of murders and mutilations of women in Pakistan, the rising waters endangering virtually the entirety of Bangladesh, the loss of the great barrier reef in Australia, the general collapse we are witnessing in the Earth's environment caused chiefly by man, the dangers posed to civil society by governmental tolerance of anti-vaxxers, the apparent plans by China to set up a military base on the far side of the moon, to name just a few "off the top of my head" items.

Let Fox continue it's Trumpian propaganda, and let C-Span put up the full videos of Trump's "speeches" in case anyone really wants to watch.
