10. Not to beat a dead horse, but it's the news media's job to "ask for details about his claims"

And ask and ask and ask.

No need to relitigate here the reasons why the media has failed so spectacularly in their one and only task. But it goes without say that they have allowed the door to stay wide open to let in notions of "fake news", alternative facts, conspiracy theories and idle claims.

It gives the Flat Earth Prez the opportunity to control the discussion....and 350 million of us.
