"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

It would be horrifying, except....

...no one is paying any attention to him.

Have you heard about this in the news? CNN, CBS, MSNBC, NPR, anybody?  Maggie Haberman didn't note any major publication reporting on it. If not for Rupar's Twitter feed, I wouldn't know about it.

There's something to be said for not spreading this noxious bullshit; then again , this is the POTUS. His staff shouldn't ignore him either, but their excuse is avoiding criminal liability themselves. When the press is ignoring the POTUS because his statements are insane, what does that say about the state of the Presidency?

Or the state of journalism? This does seem rather anodyne, even for the Grey Lady:
