What passed for "presidential" during the last three administrations (Clinton, Bush, and Obama)? And didn't the media consider itself the arbiter of what was presidential during those and most other administrations? I remember the media referring to Nixon as a sort of emperor, to Reagan as a buffoon actor who slept through his terms.

The battle (or love relationship) between the President and the Press has always existed and has always been rather stupid. And the Press has usually been the mirror image of what it accused the President of being when it criticized his foibles and proclivities.

As you've pointed out, the Trump era is more entertaining.

The real things go on, quietly or otherwise. We have to pay attention. The MSM tends to deflect from reality and drift into its own self-serving interpretations.
