Stop feeding the trolls

I think Obama agrees with me about not feeding the trolls, and in fact pushes the point even further: the troll constituting Donald Trump was fed like a foie gras goose by the news operations desperate for eyeballs and clicks.
I don’t want to spend too much time on The Donald. Following your lead, I want to show some restraint. Because I think we can all agree that from the start he's gotten the appropriate amount of coverage befitting the seriousness of his candidacy. Ha. I hope you all are proud of yourselves. The guy wanted to give his hotel business a boost and now we are praying that Cleveland makes it through July.
We'll never know what Trump's motivation was in seeking the Republican nomination, but Obama's guess is better than most---running gives you endless amounts of publicity which can help your business. If so, Trump didn't count on two things: first, that the publicity he is getting, and the views he endorses in order to get more, might be bad for business, but second, that the massive amount of free publicity he is getting via news coverage seems to have secured him the GOP nomination.

As a result, many are praying that the US makes it through 2016.
