On the upcoming Stephanopoulos interview…

How many Republicans — how many Trumps supporters and advocates — were alarmed when they learned that the president agreed to a thirty-hour interview with George Stephanopoulos?

Remember, a gaffe by a Republican echoes in the canyons of the media indefinitely, whereas a gaffe by a Democrat whispers into the ether of empty space, never to be heard again.

If the president wants to ensure his defeat in 2020, he should continue to grant up-close-and-personal access to his adversaries in the mainstream media.
