Finally, an anonymous regular reader, not seeking any fame at all said so well, “The media needs to leave this alone, let him deal with the consequences and quit showing him so much on T.V.” Yes, enough already.
OK – I’ll leave this alone, too! It’s all a bunch of hot air anyway, and way overinflated.
