President Donald Trump is a master manipulator of language — and the media. Using the digital bullhorn provided him via Twitter, Trump aggressively seeks to not only push his pet issues but also works to frame them in ways that often benefit him and elide actual facts.
Barack Obama said he used cocaine in high school and the press didn’t care. So why the angst against President Trump for taking hydroxychloroquine? If the remedy is useless, so what? Why do they care?
