Agree it's bad, but not strange, it's precisely what Trump regime has been extremely good at: controlling the conversation, setting the limits and terms, defining the framing and getting most of media, pundits, et al to play along. Something @GeorgeLakoff@twitter.com keeps pointing out.
“free speech” means forcing others to listen to you?
“draining the swamp” means massive government subsidies for corporations?
“liberty and freedom” means building a giant wall around people and sending ICE to abduct them?
Now who’s really Orwellian...
