NRPLUS MEMBER ARTICLE I t is often said these days that if any other president — Obama, Bush, Clinton — said the things President Trump says, we would be much more upset.
Of course, it is true. We would be more upset if other presidents had said the things Trump says — because they might have meant those things if they’d said them.
Journalists, those hyper-verbal strivers whose words count so much in their lives, struggle to cover a president who says so much that means so little.
