Why the attacks on Trump’s character don’t land

From Derek Hunter at Townhall:

Liberal journalists are all too happy to “fact check” everything the President says, no matter how insignificant, as if flooding the zone will somehow bring about a critical mass that turns off support. What it really does is drown out all of it, and the petty nature of most of it leads the larger issues to be dismissed as well. Trump declaring he won the Electoral College in a historic landslide isn’t important to anyone, it’s the equivalent of stretching the size of a fish you caught. Yet it’s presented alongside other substantive falsehoods as if it’s the same as saying, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” It’s not, by a longshot.More.

Reality check: Exactly. Legacy media are so out of touch that they don’t notice that most people just don’t care about the stuff that freaks them out. Just think what the Canadian media will be like when they get their Trudeaupian grants to stay operating? Really, it won’t matter if they’re as crazy as a bag of drunken jumping beans. Which means they might as well be so.
