Not defending Trump here for sure but things like “Grab them by the …” campaign were very well…

Timed scandals are a tried and true tradition in politics, going back to the elections of the 19th century when calling your opponent “the spawn of a prostitute” was typical campaign discourse. And it’s Trump, so anything he does is guaranteed to go viral. But the fact of the matter is that he did say what he said, he did not deny he said it, and there wasn’t a cabal of evil reporters plotting in their rooms about how to sell something that never happened. More like a newsroom full of reporters who were tripping over themselves to air the footage and talk about it to meet their ratings quota.
