Love him or hate him — and to be clear, I hate the guy — Trump won the day yesterday.

The body blows continue. Pundits are justifiably pounding Trump for his branding leaks real and news fake. Also Ret. Vice Adm. Bob Harward, a former U.S. Navy Seal, Trump’s choice to succeed Mike Flynn as National Security advisor, rejected the offer, calling it a shit sandwich, and Trump continues to be called out for his alternative facts and thin skin — but Trump’s base is still feasting on the red meat tossed their way yesterday. Trump reminded them that campaign Trump is the same as President Trump.

While Trump’s overall approval rating is, according to Gallup, at 41% — a full 21 points below the average at the one-month mark for a first term President, that number is still higher than the 32% of Americans who say they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media. 32% is as low as it has been since Gallup started polling on the questions in 1972.
