I'm starting to think that Trump really doesn't need to do anything to distract from his policies. There's a whole lot of dreadful things that happened last week (see below for a summary of some of it), but what's REALLY got everyone up in arms is that someone was ejected from a United flight.

Not saying the United thing is OK; it's not. And certainly not saying the we can't be upset about this outrage when there are other outrages. But given that I found NO mention on FB of, say, the elimination of funding for the forensic science commission, the fact that Trump's chief terrorism adviser expressed support for a violently anti-Semitic organization, or that Trump signed an EO to revoke the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Act.

I did see a few mentions of the destruction of the filibuster & subsequent installation of Gorsuch, and some discussion of the bombing of Syria, but neither of those got anywhere NEAR as much attention as United Airlines.

So... what's up with that?
