Media Obsessed Trump Attempts to Discredit Press Before Bad News Strikes

Donald Trump’s routine is so obvious and transparent it’s barely worth calling out. His game is clear: Discredit the press before the really bad press hits.  

It’s no coincidence that during the same week The Wall Street Journal added a jaw dropping addition to the Russia story, Trump went on yet another media tirade. Trump’s strategy of constant distraction and misdirection also happened on the same week that the health care bill details are being worked out and Trump’s bogus “election integrity” commission begins to attempt to collect information on voters in all 50 states.  

During the week of June 26 to July 2, Trump trashed the media on twitter 15 times. He then went on another insecure rant during a speech on July 1. USA Today reports that Trump has tweeted the words “fake news” ten times more than he has tweeted about immigration policy and the phrase “build a wall.” 

That indicates what is painfully obvious: That Trump’s goal of discrediting true information about his time in the White House is more important than anything else.  If he can get his followers to believe that news about him isn’t true he can dull the impact of negative news that is certain to come.
