The President is such a special snowflake that he can't stand to hear or read or see bad news about himself. So Republican National Committee and White House staff (the latter funded by taxpayers) prepare a special folder for Trump to peruse twice a day filled with, as the article details, "screenshots of positive cable news chyrons (those lower-third headlines and crawls), admiring tweets, transcripts of fawning TV interviews, praise-filled news stories, and sometimes just pictures of Trump on TV looking powerful."
There's nothing wrong with preparing digests of media coverage for Presidents and other politicians. That's been going on for decades.
What is wrong is the practice of shading the truth so that it's only a oxygen-starved bubble filled with happy horseshit. Trump needs to know the truth, not just sugar-coated tripe.
It speaks volumes about a man that he's so insecure, he can't stand to hear or see anything negative about himself. This is something a mentally unstable dictator would do, not the leader of a democracy.
