CHICAGO (CBS) — The death of Osama bin Laden is good for so many reasons. One of the best reasons is that it’s knocked Donald Trump off the front pages.

For five nights in a row now, we’ve shut up the Trump foul mouth and the TV talking heads yapping about voters liking what Trump says about Barak Obama’s college education.

Until bin Laden was killed, the media was non-stop Donald Trump. Oh, how rich and smart he is. Hardly a word about the thug that that he is, declaring bankruptcy four times because, he says, “I know how to play the bankruptcy laws.” Hardly a word about what a boor Trump is, blubbering about China, “Listen, you mother-bleepers, we’re gonna tax you 25 percent,” and, about race: “I have a great relationship with the blacks.”

Until bin Laden was killed, the media was lamenting that Donald Trump was getting too much attention, now being most responsible for giving him the attention. 

The best way to shut up Donald Trump is to shut up ourselves.
