Letter to the Editor | Can't see Trump in heroic situation

I still am laughing at the anti-media joke in a recent letter, the one about how the press would report a heroic act involving the president. The joke is especially funny because it imagines Trump doing something for someone else. Preposterous! The real kicker would be if he did something heroic.

Imagine the media take if a respected senator of his own party died: "Trump Disrespects American War Hero."

Sorry if that joke flopped, but it isn't the first time a joke failed. But it is at least the second time Trump has done that.
