Donald Trump isn’t helping.

From last week’s post:

Decades ago, I conceived The William Tell Show in response to the pain I heard on the airwaves in the world of talk radio. If we can cast aside all theories, opinions, beliefs, ideologies and value judgments, and attend instead merely to What Is, we may be able to begin from a state of agreement.
What Is is indisputable.

Until now, I’ve paid no attention to Trump’s tweets.  It’s clear that I could spend all my time deconstructing them according to the guidelines of Free Speech Handbook.  But this is not my only task in  life.
