The best thing reporters, news organizations, TV pundits and so on could do is stop referring to Trump as President Trump. They should relentlessly refer to him as Donny or Little Donny. Fight fire with fire.

Won’t do a thing, they couldn’t care less what we call them.

Best thing reports etc. could do is to stop normalizing lies
Call out the lies, correct the disinformation, expose the disinformers, etc.

Call out that need for demonizing others and that absolutist superiority that masks a pathetic insecurity.
Call out the mentality that any malicious lie is simply their Free Speech Right.
etc., etc., etc., . . .

Question the “too much is never enough” mentality that drives this society we are trapped in.

And so on and so forth.  cheese

I disagree. They’ve done all that. If facts and truth don’t matter, then calling them out doesn’t matter. If they value absolutist superiority and demonizing others, then calling that out just emboldens them. The thing that strikes home every time though is, hate to say it, name calling. It sucks but it works. So play his game…Donny, Little Donny, over and over and over from every side.

Media has been attacking Trump with much worse than milquetoast names for 2 years now, and they have nothing to show for it besides their own damaged credibility.

Remember Trump has been dealing with the media head on for something like 40 years - he’s indestructible.

This was discussed a few weeks ago.

Then you missed my point entirely. They’ve attacked him with things that unfortunately don’t seem to matter. They need to handle Donny the way Donny handles them, and everyone else. At every press briefing every morning at the WH, if every reporter when asking Sandy Pants Huckabeebee a question referred to him as Little Donny, or Donny, then Donny himself would get so mad. And Sandypants too would say that’s disrespectful. And they could reply, so it’s respectful to call Rubio Little Marky, etc etc. Is that respectful Sandypants? Day after day of this and both Sandypants and Donny would be pushed beyond their limits and melt down.

I got your point, and its not going to work.

Referring to Trump as “little Donny’ won’t have any effect whatsoever - they may as well call him “poopyhead” or something. Nothing the media throws at him would make him “melt down” - he’s immune to that.

The fact is, Trump can handle the media much better than they can handle him; not to mention a limpwristed name calling strategy would make media look even more ridiculous to the public than it already does.
