"Donald Trump"

I get - and sort of agree with - "covering Donald Trump as you would cover any other president." But if President Obummer (or even President Bush) behaved this way, "normal coverage" would not be like this. Manufacturing a "president" by just writing him as fiction is not (entirely, anyway) normal coverage. Sure there are always elements of this. Covering the pageant as it is meant to be seen, as scripted, not as it actually was. But that's always bad! And it isn't always "normal."
