fwiw even Southern California was solidly Clinton in '16 and I think it was narrowly Obama in '12. it could elect Republican governors tho, and maybe Senators in midterms.

Someone pointed out to me that Trump's attacks on the news media are the accumulation of 35 years of grievances of how he was treated in print or TV or whatever, like those tweets stem from him being mad at people poking fun at his hair in the 90s.

i'm sure that plays a part, but also like it's pretty much his last resort given the blatant level of corruption, crime, wrongdoing, lies, etc. there is no real coherent excuse for any of it, so you kind of have to go with the simple and all-encompassing "fake news! not true! lying media!" which all of his supporters get and agree with by now.

where DJT is right and the people who try to reign him in on his staff were wrong, is that the constant twitter tirades, repeating lies and attacks, works pretty well, at least with your base of support. consolidating a base of support within your party is important if you don't want to be challenged, investigated, impeached. the Mueller investigation is getting less and less popular, and Trump is cruising with Reagan levels of approval from Republican-identifying voters.

Yeah he's winning. And the laughs we all had after the Lester Holt interview seem like 5 years ago.

Eh they got all branches of govt locked up after the 16 election even the dumbest Republican on earth would be enjoying monumental support. Let's see how popular he is if we take the house and Senate back and can't get anything done

eh, maybe, but this reason from the man himself seems more likely:

Lesley Stahl: Trump admitted mission to "discredit" press
CBS "60 Minutes" correspondent Lesley Stahl has revealed a candid remark made to her by then-presidential candidate Donald Trump in 2016. Stahl told a group of fellow journalists at the Deadline Club Awards Dinner in New York City earlier this week that Mr. Trump had admitted his consistent attacks on the media were meant to "discredit" journalists so that negative stories about him would not be believed.

If you think “instantly” and “all the time” make that a nonsequitur, I guess you’re not familiar with a little concept called the ETERNAL NOW

especially when it's not even used the same way. dem's might use it sarcastically (or intentionally) for news that is in fact not true, while a lot of times republicans use it to dismiss news they dislike.

if the latter uses it that way, they prob think the former is using it that way too, and not actually pointing out it is in fact not accurate.

The thing that annoys me the most about "fake news" is it was originally meant in regards to the blatant lies Trump kept telling before the election, then he took it and forced it to mean the opposite.

edit: I see that's been covered.

Trump just retweeted the article about our galaxy being twice the size it was 2 years ago and equal to the size of Andromeda. And added "You're welcome."

the issue is Republicans learned a long time ago they can shape policy and win elections by blatantly lying and creating dumb soundbites. it dosent matter if something is true or not. if you say it in front of a camera and broadcast to a low information base that actively rejects science, reason, and critical thinking they will vote for you.

the other issue is democrats are completely spineless and will spend all day trying to pick apart the logical fallacies of a raving lunatic who is appealing to a base entirely on primal impulses.
