    ” ‘Hey. Mr. President, did you see this story in Politico? Here’s a copy of it.’ ”

    “there’s one form of media President Donald Trump consumes to a surprisingly voracious degree, despite the widespread assumption that he’s not much of a reader: the printed word. At a time when the newspaper industry has lost at least 2,000 jobs nationwide since Trump was elected, and a quarter of its total jobs since 2008, Trump’s ink-stained reading habits are striking.”

    “Ivanka has “never stopped” feeding articles directly to the president, said one person close to the White House, who added that early on in Trump’s tenure, she particularly used to enjoy “bombing people out with newspaper articles.””Every morning before dawn, according to current and former White House officials, Trump has four daily newspapers — the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post — delivered to the White House residence.” “a legal box full of newspapers, magazines and other printed materials, a vessel often simply known as “the boss’ papers,” ““He’s not a fan of the New York Times or the Washington Post but he never misses a day reading them,” said a person close to the White House. “And if he doesn’t read them that day, he’ll put them in a box and read them a few days later.”” ““He would literally sit on Air Force One for, like, 12 hours and go through stacks of newspapers,” marveled one former senior administration official. “It was amazing how religious he was about his newspapers.””
    “Trump loves positive coverage, critical pieces hold his attention longer”

      LOL I seriously doubt he spends 12 hours reading newspapers, when would he have time to watch Fox and Friends and sending all those tweets ( which are hard for him because of his teeny tiny hands).

      It’s an exhausting, pointless conversation that serves no true function, and time is wasted when spent explaining why telling people of color to “go back” whence they came or baselessly claiming that black public figures are corrupt is deeply racist. But the conversation has provoked me to revisit author Toni Morrison’s 1975 keynote address at Portland State University where she outlined the responsibility of artists and scholars to tell the truth, the true purpose of racism and what underlines the motivations of racists.

      Rs: Racism, Russia and Republican servility. By relying on these, Trump hopes he can do exactly what he did in 2016: Run up margins just high enough in Midwestern swing states to win the Electoral College, even though he’s likely to lose in the popular vote.
      As Heather Digby Parton has argued at Salon, this isn’t just an eruption of racist rage from Fox News Grandpa. Trump’s team is leaning into this as a deliberate electoral strategy, to “make this the most divisive election they possibly can,” in hopes of inspiring the base and demoralizing the opposition.”

      “To be sure, the Three G’s aren’t entirely gone from Republican politics. The evangelical vote needs whipping up and Trump is providing plenty of that when it comes to attacking LGBTQ rights, protecting the gun lobby and undermining women’s rights, which is all “God” was ever really a euphemism for. Vice President Mike Pence is still heavily promoting those lines of attack, and Trump can periodically be counted on to offer insincere claims of piety and half-baked defenses of “Second Amendment rights” to help those efforts along.”
