But some are beginning to catch on now, Shane Goldmacher and Eli Stokols of Politico seem to.
From their story in Politico:
Donald Trump's first two weeks have been a frenetic sprint that has unsettled Washington and left a rattled world wondering what’s next.
Trump's White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is the provocateur who has engineered the historically disruptive opening gambit of executive orders, diplomatic upheaval, Twitter attacks and continuing attacks on the media.
The strategy? To send one deafening message that rings louder than all the seeming commotion: Trump is bringing a sledgehammer to the status quo.
“People want change,” as White House spokesman Sean Spicer said this week. “President Trump is delivering that change.”Now of course, this is not news.
President Trump's stirring inauguration speech promised the same, uncompromising uprising that he campaigned on.
Trump wants change.
The American people want change.
And they are impatient.
More from Politico:
“Remember when Trump and Clinton talked about stamina during the debate? Turns out it was a question for the rest of us,” said Ann Marie Lipinski, curator at the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard. “You can’t walk away from your phone without fear of missing something significant that’s just transpired. None of it feels like normal figuring out. It all feels like a traumatic condition.”Ha ha ha.
Journalists and their indoctrinators at Harvard want a safe space.
Suddenly reporting is work and it is not fun anymore.
Trump is doing three things: 1. Doing what he promised -- fast, 2. Overwhelming his critics, and 3. Making them look like banshees who constantly shriek.
His enemies in the press are calling Time Out. He pushes full speed ahead.
The reaction overseas is a delight as well.
European Union leaders went so far as to describe the United States now as a “threat.” European Council President Donald Tusk wrote in a blunt open letter that Trump was “seeming to put into question the last 70 years of American foreign policy.”Duh.
America will no longer pick up the military tab for Europe.
Uncle Sugar is saying no.
But mainly, the press, the rioters and all the other Democrats are protesting, while President Trump actually does things.
Trump’s team has sought to use such Democratic rhetoric against their opponents. “You can't even — there is no gradation of hysteria,” Conway said on Fox on Thursday. “It’s everything makes them cry and scream.”
At the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, the president positioned himself once again as the healer of what he described in his inaugural address as a state of “American carnage.”
“The world is in trouble, but we're going to straighten it out, okay? That's what I do. I fix things. We're going to straighten it out,” he said, with full 206 weeks remaining in his first term. “Believe me.”We shall see how this works out in the mid-terms.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election is covered in a sequel, "Trump the Establishment," which will be published in paperback on Tuesday.
