For all the talk of "national security" and terrorism fears since 9/11, it's clear that nobody on the teevee actually worries about their personal safety. Trump makes a big boom boom and they get excited. It's just a movie, something happening over there. He brings us to the brink of war (maybe, who knows) in North Korea, which would likely lead to 10 million+deaths, and they get drunk on the drama.
As fucked up as the cold war era was, I remember that people took this stuff seriously.
