Not sure what to make of Dan Rather v.2019, but in any event, he has an opinion too, about "Trump Fatigue", and for worse or more worse, Trump has definitely been in the news and in the comedy skits and horror stories and real-world disasters, 24/7. If it's good it's because he's the most stable genius since Einstein invented the wheel, believe him, terrific guy.... Anything bad? Hillary did it!
OK, so: I think Rather is right to talk about how the "fatigue" is sort of a blunt weapon which can be part of any "strategy", but Trump of course is incapable of anything like a "strategy" beyond "Feed Me... Love Me.... Tell me how smart I am... send me love letters.
But I don't think we should ever
speak of the human being Trump - the shell of Hell
. It's just so persistent! Meanwhile...
It is his handlers, sycophants and parasites who fuel his vitriol, enabling him, translating & justifying his sub-human tweets & infantile acts into "what he meant is.." Executive functioning (like dealing with facts or logic) is supported by staff while feeding his delusions via flattery and Fox (and mutual friends). It's all good theater after all, reality TV. How's it working? "Terrific. You wouldn't believe it..."
That said, here's Dan Rather. It's very short, only a few paragraphs, on Reader Supported News
. There are only two comments now, but I think they fairly well cover the spectrum of opinion & reaction.
Besides, nobody has any ability to focus today, TMI constantly disrupts thinking and memory, and in the end, facts are fantasy.... Eh?
Why such a vulnerable populace? Ongoing PTSD in the U.S. since the last election and with every new day getting lower than the last prior record for evil, vindictive destructiveness, from deep in the bowels of swampy crime and corruption "like you've never seen"!
On a positive, hopeful note, I do agree with Rather that (as in Woodstock 50 yrs ago) "we need to feed each other". Resist. Or perish.
Rather writes: Beware fatigue. It is easy to say, of course, much harder to achieve. Memories jump to mind of fourth quarter huddles with my high school football team and a coach exhorting us to dig deeper.readersupportednews.org
