The Gospel According to Donald
WASHINGTON -- Did you see the widespread news reports that President Trump likes to get a "propaganda document" twice a day filled with nice stuff about himself? Supposedly, it is material that aides have culled that makes him look good. Sometimes it is a chyron screenshot with a line he would like. Sometimes it is a positive news story. Sometimes, a supportive tweet. Sometimes, if they are out of positive things, which I bet happens a lot, the staff will throw in some photos that flatter the president.
I'm not sure if these reports are true -- some staffers deny it -- but I hope it is. We want President Grump to be happy and content. What I'd suggest is that aides get more creative with their positive news. We all know the president doesn't check things out real carefully; why let truth stand in the way?
