Someone (I think it was on Washington Week in Review) noted Trump's frenetic "quick, look over there!" tactics, which are designed to get everybody agitated about some other issue when one becomes inconvenient.
So what happened to the Senate hearings on Russian hacking? Last I heard, there were 20 more witnesses to be called, but I haven't read anything about this since the end of March.
News outlets seem to have dropped that story like a hot potato, instead chasing after the stories about making Syria and Afghanistan go ka-boom and the recent nyah-nyahing by Mike Pence and Rex Tillerson on the lotline between North and South Korea.
I worry that in dealing with a president whose tactics are distract-and-distort, the press is developing a sympathetic case of attention deficit disorder.
What other stories are fading that need to stay on the front burner? Obama's alleged bugging of Trump? Paul Manafort's involvement with Russians? Mike Flynn's ditto? Disruptions and expenses caused by Trump's inability to stay home? Broken campaign promises?
