Trump addiction?

Cable news gets the shakes faster than a wino in the drunk tank when Trump doesn't tweet.

No it isnt!

Writing a story about the Dead Heads who traveled around following the Grateful Dead shows wasn't the same as being a Dead Head. No one had to be a Dead Head to read the story.

In fact, the story informs only the folks who were never Dead Heads. The Dead Heads already knew everything about the Grateful Dead and the music they made. They followed the band around because they knew what they would get in every show. They were all big fans.

The folks who were never Grateful Dead fans never went to the shows, so they had no idea of what going to a show was like.

The band loved the Dead Heads, but they never played a show just for them. Anyone could buy a ticket to one of their shows, so the band always played for everyone in the crowd. The band always chose the best mix of their music that made the crowd the happiest. Some of it was well-known, some new, and some was made up on the spot.

The story wasn't about Donald Trump. It was about his most faithful followers. It was written for all the folks who are not his most faithful followers.

Understand the difference?

No reading comprehension I see.....


The OPs article was about trumps followers, got it, my comment was about the OP having to follow trump so closely that he/she can find and post articles that are from useless websites that nobody else has.....


Sorry I had to make it kindergarten easy for you, but I've been having to do it for a lot on your side lately.....

I have many liberal friends, some are very wise and intelligent, good people that I hold thoughtful discussions with. Same with my conservative friends.

If someone cannot hold a reasoned conversation and add any value at all, it's the best and most logical recourse.

BTW, some Trumper will be here shortly to chortle how it's the rest of us who are addicted to Trump because we took notice when he forges his weather maps, etc.
Well, you do come onto this website every day to write several things about Donald Trump. If that's not an addiction, then what's an addiction?
