  1. I watch one soap. GH om ABC. It has been interrupted so many times over this man and now nights. Stop the madness.

    • Unfortunately, he is still the President and when the President requests time to speak to the public, the networks have to give it to him.

      • Most have been in the daytime because of press meetings knowing the reporters are going to ask question over something he did. Not him speaking. Can’t we get that on the news?
