Reality Show

Some people think Trump should be disregarded as a reality show performer. But I am haunted by the lines from a Sting song: 

"You could say I'd lost my belief in our politicians
They all seemed like game show hosts to me. "

A lot of our press is devoted to treating the presidency as a reality show. It's often remarked on that journalists like to treat political campaigns as if they were horse races, personality contests, searching the footage for moments of drama to feature for the camera.

And so I don't think that the fact he's a fast talking camera hog is really the reason to dump
The Trump.
