The news cycle of the past week or so has been a boone to Trump and his running away, as far and as fast as he can, from the media attention to the special counsel's investigation of his Russian affair(s).

In the past week the headline news has been:

The Roy Moore sexual misconduct stories;

The Al Franken sexual misconduct stories;

The passage, by the Houe of Representatives, of so-called Tax Reform bill;

The trip to Asia to gather support for harsher sanctions against North Korea;

AND

Just for good measure, the removal of the of the ban which prohibited American hunters from murdering elephants for sport and trophies.

The last item on this week's media menu is the Mueller Investigation.

If this keeps up, the media and the public will have forgotten what the special counsel was appointed to do and what the investigation was all about, as the sex laden controversy over the Alabama special Senate election swirls around the issues and images regarding the prospect of seating a molesting predator of adolescent girls.
.
The only thing that sells better than sex and nudity is "sexual lewdity".

All I can say is, as far as priorities go, it is incumbent upon us to not be distracted despite the errant sticks the media is chasing like a dog on a walk through the woods....

FOLLOW THE MONEY!

Keep your eyes on where Mueller's investigation is going and what tricks Trump will attempt to pull in an effort to derail and debunk the work being done which may expose his involvements and entanglements with Russian money interests which are essentially the equivalent of the interests of the Russian government...

FOLLOW THE MONEY!!!

Errrrmmmm...

Okay, I'm all for following the money.  In fact, you missed one...

Senate bill includes tax break on private jets

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/360785-senate-tax-bill-...

That said, there is absolutely nothing wrong with paying attention to BOTH the Trumpish shenanigans being played out in Washington D.C. AND all of the disclosures and, hopeful, prosecution/censure of men in BOTH parties who commit sexual assault...

@Amy;  Re the Tax Reform Bill:

The house voted to eliminate the deduction for state and local taxes but retain the deduction for the corporate expenses in relocating their business (YOU GUESSED IT) off shore, out of the country....

So much for "America First"...

Their tax plan creates jobs......In China!

Of course, none of this is headline news.

We subsidize offshoring. Great.

Hard to say which of the changes in the proposed Republican Tax Rape is most draconian, but one of the most deleterious is the tax on tuition waivers for grad students and removing the interest deduction on student loans. Then again, an educated populace is not in the best interest of the Republican Party.
