This is Not the Behavior of An Innocent Man

This is not the behavior of an innocent man, but I don’t think the President is guilty. I think he is prone to rash judgment, impulsive behavior, and like an addict must want help before allowing himself to be helped. Right now, President Trump does not want help even though he needs an intervention.

Maybe the President Understands the Public Better Than The Talking Heads Do

According to Bloomberg’s polling, the media is giving 75% of its attention to the Russia investigation and only 6% of Americans think that is the most important news of the day. 35% of Americans think healthcare is the most important news and the media is giving that only 4% of its attention.
