I’ll wait here until you return.
The other day I highlighted this tweet that I thought was very perceptive and plays well with Spock’s thesis:
I’m sort of serious. The job of the press will be to get information about Trump. Trying to get anything FROM him is a fool’s errand.

I think we need some dogged journalists to go around Trump and get into his record. For instance, Andrew Kaczynski went into the way-back machine and found this:
(CNN)In a series of interviews in March of 2014, Donald Trump singled out Russia as the United States’ “biggest problem” and greatest geopolitical foe.
Trump’s comments more than two years ago, which came in the wake of Russian incursions into Crimea, offer a sharp contrast to the Russia-friendly rhetoric he has employed since launching his presidential campaign.
So, what happened between now and then? That’s where we need to focus. His team are experts at Gish-Calloping, so we need to throw everything at them, salad-shooter style. Spocko’s right: you have to have multiple lines going all at once.
