CNN's Stelter: Do You Feel That Us In The Press Are Meeting The Challenge To Keep Up With Trump?


Reporters always try to make sense of the president's behavior. It's a natural instinct. But right now, there's no sense to be made. He's just swinging wildly, hoping to land a punch.

If all this is too much to keep up with, well, that's a challenge for us here in the press. Do you feel that we're meeting that challenge? "The Time Magazine" has depicted this really well. This was a cover of "Time" Just one month into the Trump presidency, February 2017, Trump in the center of a storm.

Well, time updated the cover, here you see the water is rising, it's getting stormier as crisis and scandals engulf the White House. It's a great metaphor because we're also all drowning in news, there's been this hyper -- hyperactive, chaotic news cycle, with allegations of corruption, accounts of the president's fury, all of them filling the front pages every day. Even some of his defenders say he's in increasing legal jeopardy.

I mean, take a look at some of the stories we don't have time to cover. Today, this is the only time today I'll mention Paul Ryan, not running for re-election, and all of these other stories that otherwise would probably be the lead of this program.
