"a rudimentary concept of avoiding the spotlight until people forget"
Seriously, the public has a really short attention span. (Remember the Fukashima Plant? Yeah, me neither, that's old news.)
All you had to do was show up on time for awhile and no one would have remembered, but the fact that it continues to happen is troubling. I know supporters like to down play tardiness like it's no big deal, but I see it as a very basic part of being a responsible adult. If you can't do the basics, how can we trust him with the complex decisions.
Being on time is not that hard to do when it's important to you.
Other media outlets are running this story, so I guess WWAY is not only one that sees this as news.
