What Are We Not Talking About When We Talk About Trump?

May 7, 2018

We live in a big world and we're focused on one small speck in it named Donald Trump. 

Comedian Michelle Wolf blasted some mainstream media companies at the White House Correspondents Dinner last weekend for their obsession with President Trump. 

There’s a ton of news right now, a lot is going on, and we have all these 24-hour news networks, and we could be covering everything. Instead, we’re covering three topics. Every hour is Trump, Russia, Hillary, and a panel full of people that remind you why you don’t go home for Thanksgiving. 

She concluded by reminding us that "Flint still doesn't have clean water."  Oh yes. Flint.

This is our third all-calls Monday. We have no guests scheduled. It's just you and Colin and your comments.

What should we be talking about? What would we be talking about if we weren't talking about Trump? Is there a way to keep an eye on Trump and still expand our national interests to areas that have little to do with Trump? 

Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.
