Hopeless

The mainstream press, of course.  Two headlines in the Washington Post today about Donald Trump humiliating himself in front of a miserable 32 year old dictator:

"The summit was a triumph of Trumpian stagecraft. The media fell for it."

And as if deliberately trying to prove the truth of that comment, here is the current lead story in the Washington Post:

"Trump-Kim summit yields hope for breakthrough but no guarantees"

What it actually leaded was an utter collapse by The World's Greatest Deal Maker, and a gigantic loss for the United States, but God forbid that the Washington Post or any other mainstream news source should say that in clear language.  The media fell for it, all right. 

Nobody is making the media "fall for it," of course.  They are falling for it because that is what they are paid to do, and if it destroys the country in the process, so what, as long as the checks don't bounce.
