Years ago, I noticed that in US public discourse, it's normal for all sides to be wrong.
Take Trump's decision to not retaliate against Iran for shooting down a reconnaissance drone.
Another pattern I notice is the hubbub about what Trump did or did not do gets more attention than whatever Trump ended up do or not do. This is the part where Trump can mess with the media.
Now these media types who are used to be able to see via leaks what exactly is going on in the administration are losing it.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
