Poor ladies at Fox News. They're sad that Trump may not be on the TV as much, since he (allegedly) was putting an end to the daily
torture briefings filled with lies and anger and partisanship. Katie Pavlich asked Melissa Francis about it on an Outnumbered segment, and you'd think she was a Baltimorean on the day Cal Ripken retired.

Now, THAT is an actually accurate statement. This IS a totally different "president." One whose only priority is helping his shattered ego limp along until the next high/rally/briefing. And if it ends up killing citizens along the way, or in service of that high, so be it.
I gotta say, though, this entire soliloquy probably sounded better in the original Korean.
