The dump Trump movement is in full swing and the synergism between the GOP establishment and the media is a staggering example of the Washington cabal looking to secure their place at the trough, and Chris Matthews tingle up the leg at this year's identity politics candidate, Hillary Clinton.
Sure, Mr. Trump has made mistakes, but the gotcha interviews, the anchor smirks, the stories based on false premise and the behind the scenes maneuvering for delegates could well sink the businessman.
It's hard ball for sure and you have to be ready to compete. Ultimately, as Trump kept winning, media amused with the spectacle had to step up and they did. Watch an afternoon of CNN, MSNBC and even FOX and you'll be swamped with negative imagery, quotes twisted and straw man controversies with lots of response.. Like the latest canard about a third party candidacy, like it makes any sense for the frontrunner to go there and the oft overlooked impediment of ballot access and the deadlines passed or about to.
Next thing you know they'll trot out a fireman to claim Trump is picking on him.
