What have I missed today?

Today, while heating up my lunch during the 5 minutes I had to get between lab and a meeting with a professor, I asked 2 other classmates standing nearby “did Trump do anything while we were in lab?”

Sure enough, he had signed executive orders to resurrect the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines.

My face dropped.

The second classmate then said “ugh…I was getting so tired of having to watch the protests on the news!”

I just looked at her, not knowing what to say next.

I think she was trying to sympathize. That’s the problem with this whole situation to you???

That’s the problem with this whole situation to you??? That they are on TV? Is it an inconvenience? Do you think that was the goal the whole time–to get on the news every day? Did you want newer news? Are you upset there will be more protesting? Do you want the news to focus on something else? Just what else would you like them to report on? Are there other happenings across the US we should be reporting on more?

Please explain.
