A lesson of the Trump candidacy
One of the lessons of the Trump candidacy is that we’d do better if the press weren’t so nitpicky of candidates who are competent, who can do the job they’re running for.
Such an imbalance in this campaign. Hillary is willing to respond intelligently to your gotcha questions. The other guy is the exact opposite. If you get too close to something he doesn’t want to talk about he gives you a juicy crazy quote and you report on that instead.
Now that you know a candidate can do this, you have to try to cut the ones who don’t a little more slack.
