IN LOVE WITH CONFUSION
Best-selling author and talk radio host Eric Metaxas believes that the press deliberately chooses not to understand or accept President Trump’s style of communicating or use of language, parsing every single syllable.
“I think that the secular mainstream media has willfully insisted on reading him that way,” Mr. Metaxas told PJ Media.”They’re almost in love with being unable to understand him.”
The practice does much, the author said, to drive dangerous polarization, or rob Americans from hearing good news about their nation. He also suggests Mr. Trump wield his folksiness with care — and predicts he’ll do just that.
“I remember the viciousness toward Ronald Reagan — it was vicious. I remember the viciousness toward George W. Bush,” Mr. Metaxas added. “None of that can even compare to the way Trump has been treated by the media.”
