I’ve never been as consistently and relentlessly mistaken on any subject as I’ve been on Trump. I thought he’d start invading the second he was elected. I thought he’d immediately, well, eventually, well, now for sure, would recognize the Crimea as Russian. I thought he’d let Putin start another invasion of Ukraine or of somebody else. I thought he’d start a global economic crisis.
I was wrong. We were all wrong, many times over. This doesn’t mean he’s a good president, far from it. The fellow stinks. But we are all constantly wrong about what he will do. And to avoid recognizing that we can’t figure it out, we try to make a lot of hype over ridiculous, silly little things like payments to some Playboy prostitute or some sad Russian whore of zero import.
The question is: are we all constantly so wrong because we don’t get real information or real analysis? Are fake news a real thing, maybe?
