The Man Behind the Curtain

People: Trump is amping up his tirades against the media for the purpose of discrediting the free press in the minds (such as they are) of his supporters. Why? Because he knows damn well that evidence is going to come up to link him to Putin, to show that he is compromised by Putin/Russia and therefore can't be trusted at all, even just due to that one reason--though there are so many other conflicts of interest when it comes to Trump, too--to put the interests of the United States first. In the case of Russia, we are talking about an enemy foreign power run by a murdering thug KGB dictator. Trump's allegiance seems to be to said murdering thug and not to the United States of America. That's what he's trying desperately to distract you from realizing.

Trump running around demonizing the press is a tactic that he, and all fascists and wannabe fascists use to control the people.

Think of the Wizard of Oz. He had and used a lot of smoke and mirrors to deflect from people seeing the tiny-handed (couldn't resist) man behind the curtain, who really didn't have magical powers and couldn't deliver on anything he promised. But at least the Wizard was "an old Kansas man" with a good heart. Trump does NOT have a good heart. And we are all definitely not in Kansas anymore. So don't be fooled by the smoke and mirrors.
