What I think happened with this incident, is that Congress is in


recess right now. So, there's not much for the media to report on, except for the hurricane. As Gateway said, there's been non-stop, 24 hour coverage of this for the past week. Trump likes very much to be in the media spotlight, and the more hurricane news, the more he insists on being front and center. That's why he pushes this issue about Alabama.
Trump and the media have a symbiotic relationship. Cable news needs ratings, and Trump's ego requires that he is always on display, always insisting that he is right.
Imagine if cable news placed their focus on Democratic candidates on the road and campaigning vigorously, with new ideas and new approaches to solving problems. That would be so much more informative for the American people. But instead, Trump insists on this silly argument, and cable news obliges him. So, no one wins, except Trump. -- B4E
