It dawns on me just how good Trump is at changing the subject. I used to think Kellyanne was good but Trump is MUCH better. The last was really the best. All the talking heads are concerned with insurance and premiums. The right started this and the left jumped right on the bandwagon so, right now, the debate is what is going to happen with health insurance. My own thought is that this should be about HEALTH CARE!

We have been watching this magic occur with some regularity. When a question approaches any kind of subject which the right might not like Trump goes off and its gone. An instance is 10 days ago and Trump accused Obama of bugging his phones (now being poorly walked back by the White House). I will leave it up to the reader to figure out what that was distracting from. I only wonder what they will come up with the next time they want to change the subject as the subject of wire tapping will fade back, along with all the rest, in a bit)

Distractions only go so far. They soon blow away in the political winds. Change the subject all you like...it will keep coming up time and again until answers are found.

That was a little more than a distraction.
