Campaign 2016: The world’s in turmoil, and we focus on the trivial

To the editor: You hit it out of the park on this one.

As Donald Trump uses his weapons of mass distraction, and the news cycle peddles furiously to keep up, Trump’s version of the National Enquirer is our new standard for the center of political gravity.

Climate change? The World Health Organization estimates tens of thousands of additional deaths and damage from human-caused climate change. Weather extremes and sea level rising beyond the normal range are predicted to cost this nation trillions of dollars.

Trump’s answer. Boring! Let’s get to the really interesting stuff, like how long it takes for Clinton to say something about fainting. Trump plays us like a fiddle.
