Trump’s Personality

Trump’s policies must be differentiated from Trump’s personality. His policies are (generally) good, his Cabinet excellent, but the press — both here and abroad concentrate on his personality, which would give a hedgehog a better reputation.
Bad press, regardless of what you think of the press, has a grinding effect on policy. It sucks the oxygen from airtime that could be given to policy. For example, the Republicans on the Judiciary Committee of the House are moving rapidly to reduce frivolous lawsuits. That is huge, and we have all read about a single disabled person using a single attorney to file hundreds of lawsuits against small businesses on minor infractions, knowing the business will settle rather than go to an expensive lawsuit.
