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;
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...
