Donald Trump’s crass response to the death of legendary journalist Cokie Roberts has turned into a social media feeding frenzy.
Twitter, for instance, is awash in criticism of the president for his statement that Roberts “was never really nice to me … but I respect her as a professional.”
You see, this response and its seemingly callous nature plays right into the president’s playbook. Much of the country is now talking about him and not necessarily about the accomplishments of the journalist who gave so much of her professional life to furthering the cause of the craft she pursued with dignity and honor.
Here we are, yapping and yammering about Donald Trump. I admit to being part of the crowd that is disgusted beyond measure at this man’s continuing lack of empathy.
