What’s the real issue?

For the past four or five days I’ve been hearing criticism of President Trump’s comments re: the state of New Hampshire. You know, the drug-infested den.

I find it amusing and certainly a sign of our times that controversy surrounding this statement has centered not on its accuracy but on its coarseness, meanness, and presidentialness. What a meanie, say most in the media, and many from the state that literally mentions death in its motto.

How about: Is New Hampshire a drug-infested den?

Maybe it is.

(Shrugging emoji.)

And I think that’s the place to start.
