Every time Trump insults the national media, the public is made to endure a lecture on how important reporters are, how meaningful their place in society is.
But at this point, it’s like seeing someone from work posting selfies on social media. We get it.
Trump hasn’t done a single thing to limit press freedom, though he has shown a personal delight in overseeing the inevitable emotional breakdown every time he calls the media “fake.”
Everyone else watches this play out, mildly amused and entirely indifferent to how invalidated Trump’s insults make reporters feel.
People are too busy with their own jobs to worry about the media’s.
