Hooked on Trump


Erick Erickson has a post up over at The Resurgent suggesting that the press have become addicted to Donald Trump.

Reporters are the addicts stealing money from their mom’s purse for a hit of their drug. It is an exotic one called Trump. … They need a twelve step program, but I fear the fix is too strong. And like meth addicts, even their faces are changing as they pick at their skin and more permanently scowl. This is unhealthy.

In order to begin working a twelve-step program of recovery, they’d have to admit that they are powerless over Trump and their lives have become unmanageable. They haven’t hit bottom yet.

Well, of course! Back in the ’60s when I was working in broadcasting, the film crews (this was before portable video tape recorders) would get back with their evening reels, and decisions would have to be taken (choices are taken not made) about which film to develop first. Big car crashes or other disasters would always get processed ahead of the Metro Council meetings. NBC is sticking with an ancient form which has the advantage of also supporting their anti-Second-Amendment narrative.
