It could continue its recent Trump-bashing and be critical of the president's disjointed press conference. Or it could enjoy the show, which was more circus than substance.
It chose the latter, linking to Michael Goodwin's detailed description in the New York Post of how Trump as Circus Ringmaster "bought himself time" yesterday. Here you can read it.
Elites may have rolled their eyes about Trump's unique approach to establishing his thought leadership. But, as Goodwin observed, his loyalists had their belief in him reinforced.
After all, America has split in two. After the press conference, traditional Trump followers probably forgave him for the chaos associated with Michael Flynn and Andrew Puzder.
Tomorrow, the president will be holding a rally in Melbourne, Florida for those loyalists. When political leaders are in the soup, it's standard operating procedure to hold a rally. That goes back to Roman times with its bread and circuses.
For those still struggling to decode Trump, there is a new book - "Trump Revealed: An American Journey of Ambition, Ego, Money, and Power." It's by two The Washington Post investigative journalists - Michael Kranish and Marc Fisher. Here you can order it from Amazon.
According to that book, from the get-go, the Trump family were socially abrasive. The authors bring out the example of his father wanting a favor from a neighbor. That had to do with better television reception. When the father didn't grant a favor in return, the neighbor shut down the deal. As for the young Donald, his grade school teacher, Charles Walker, described him in 2015 as having been a "little shit."
In Trump, the nation is not likely to find a person who loves people. And that's that.
