In 2018, Can We Please Dial Down the Coverage of President Trump’s Tweets?

Here’s something I wish we’d see less of in 2018:
I get that when the president says something, it’s news. But Donald Trump’s random revenge tweets really don’t rate coverage anymore, and certainly not front-page coverage. Just wait a day or two. If this turns into something truly newsworthy, like members of Congress agreeing that we should raise Amazon’s shipping rates, then run with it. Until then, it’s just more of Trump’s aimless blather, intended to keep people talking about him, not the president of the Unites States truly proposing some kind of policy change. Ignore it.
