Diogenes’ Middle Finger:
We perceive scandals only as long as they are projected onto us, and this has never been truer than it is now. Particularly in the case of DJT, where the media diverts all other news to the back burner in order to disparage and delegitimize the Commander in Chief.
They hold a controversial or infuriating stance in our faces until such a time as they find another, larger, more salacious carrot to dangle. It’s all an act and due to the nature of the theatrics, we often don’t hear about or care about the final results. We are truly only concerned with the impact that the accusations have at the political level. Such was certainly the case when it came to Stormy Daniels and her accusations against Donald Trump. As the legal proceedings draw to a close, exoneration for the President has arrived once more.
