Ross said what is unusual is that the actions of President Donald Trump's administration are "so public," which he blamed on the news media being "intensely focused" on Washington, DC.
"Frankly, a lot of the media folks can't get over the fact that President Trump in fact is the president, is going to be the president for eight years, I hope, not just four," Ross said.
Ross also said he didn't believe the president's controversial use of Twitter was a distraction from the administration's core goals.
This week, Trump came under criticism for a long series of Twitter comments criticizing NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem prior to games.
Trump didn't appear to be moving on from his complaints about the protests.
Late on Tuesday U.S. time, he said on Twitter that even Jamaican Olympian Usain Bolt "showed respect for our national anthem."
Trump included an undated video of Bolt standing during the U.S. national anthem in the middle of a live television interview at an unidentified sporting event.
Critics noted that Trump appeared to be focusing on the NFL spat rather than a growing humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico, which was struck by Hurricane Maria last week.
Trump then responded with tweets that focused primarily on Puerto Rico's "broken infrastructure" and "massive debt."
