Great insight. I think the popularity of Trump and Sanders shows the public is sick of the staus quo — a Jeb Bush is no different to a Hillary Clinton, they represent entitlement, privilege and self serving snouts in the trough old school politics. The public want change and the media attacking Trump personally and over-paid actors endorsing Clinton just reinforce to them they need him more. As Stevens says above, asking him questions of substance eg Bill of Rights and the political/legal process would have been a better approach. Unfortunately it seems the media is using ‘Trump bait’ for their own purposes (clicks, views, ratings) and at the same time reinforcing in the people’s minds, “this is why we need to vote Trump”.
