In the annals of political reportage, I thought perhaps we’d hit bottom last week with this: a fake journalist interviewing a fake presidential candidate about a campaign that will never exist.

Umm, no Dad, he is all nonsense, all the time. He has a few valid points about America’s image and business standing around the world but so do a lot of people. Other than that, his platform is basically, ‘Hey I’m Donald Trump and, worst case scenario, I get to say that one time I ran for President”.
