“What Trump fundamentally understood—a lesson that I worry still has not been fully absorbed by the political mainstream—is that, in the current news era, attention matters far more than credibility.”

Exactly. And the media on the left made Trump. The harder MSNBC pushed their rage machine against Trump, the more it just confirmed what people who already felt disowned by Democrats (the working class) had been feeling for the past decade. If the Dems had any guts and brains they’d seek the center again and ditch the dumb patois of woke identity politics.
