Modus Operandi

Time for truth, Donald Trump literally admitted to Lesley Stahl, that he continually attacks the media, in order to discredit and demean journalists, to ensure no one believes the news reported about him, it’s his modus operandi. Trump has realigned the gradation to the meaning of the expression, “Don’t kill the messenger.” The expression is believed to have originated in 442 B.C. with Sophocles, or believed to have been originated during wartime when dueling armies needed to exchange messages. Some believe the expression originated to protect pigeons that carried messages well before PETA was even established, while others believe the expression originated with royalty, as Kings and Queens would kill messangers who delivered news they didn’t like. When things are repeated, people tend to believe those things. Guess it depends on what you believe. Nonetheless, Trump’s M.O. has lost its mojo, as truth has eclipsed belief.

modus operandi [ˌmōdəs ˌäpəˈrandē, ˌmōdəs ˌäpəˈrandī] noun; a particular way or method of doing something, especially one that is characteristic or well-established; the way in which something operates or works.
