Most of us can relate to this Trump business, we just have to put it in perspective. You're at work and you get a new manager, or a new co worker. You're part of a clique and you know how the job works, you all get along, you may bend the rules or take advantage of how things are set up. Then along comes the new guy and he is a threat to your comfortable little world.
What do you do? You either try to get him to go along with how you want things done, to your advantage, not necessarily the company's, or you try to force him out. You sneak around and report on his mistakes, send memos to corporate, undermine him every chance you get.
So that's whats going on here. Just remember that we're the share holders and customers of the company that is the United States Government. And what these people are doing is to benefit themselves, not us.

Because without the media, he would never have gotten any attention.
45 cannot live without attention.

Really, now...
No President has ever been treated worse than Donald Trump?

Someone has comprehension problems, that's for sure.

But it isn't you or me, or anybody we know- it's the guy with an orange face.

If a new manager showed up and started lying about things that we could all clearly see, accused the previous manager of wiretapping him, passed on company secrets to our competitors, ...

This is truly one of the most direct and clear sentiments I have seen here ...

... of a fascist mindset.
