rump craves attention the way most of us need air. He has to be at the center of chaos and controversy. He covets high ratings. He needs an audience that’s mesmerized by his outrageous tweets, his incendiary insults, his keep-them-guessing asides, his over-the-top story lines, his petty vindictiveness.

So suppose the crowds stopped roaring? Suppose we all stopped reacting to his every taunt and jeer? What would happen if we no longer paid attention to his tweetstorms and tantrums? What if the media and the rest of us focused only on the real news – decisions actually made by Congress, the courts, and the Trump administration? Policies actually put forward?

He would be a showman without a show, a barker without a crowd, a provocateur without anyone provoked.

Who would have thought that you could destroy my beautiful wickedness!
Worth a try, isn’t it?
