I used to love listening to President Obama, whose addresses to the nation were reasoned, elegantly phrased, and formulated to make we citizens of a diverse republic actually think.
I don’t listen to Trump, except the short clips on CNN of some of his more outrageous moments, like the unhinged press conference in Trump Towers after Charlottesville. I actually can’t stand to see or hear him — I plan to read analysis of what he had to say on Afghanistan, but not his actual words.
I turned on the CNN town hall with Paul Ryan for a few minutes — he’s not worth listening to either — except that Jake Tapper’s expression was priceless and I wouldn’t have wanted to miss that.
How about you? Are you still in the cohort of “Trump’s our president and we want him to succeed” or were you a Trump supporter to begin with — or do you do what I do?
Love to hear.
