Response to Sophiegirl (Original post)

3. This whole thing was a COMMERCIAL for his hotel.

He said outrageous things that he knew would get major audience attention, and then he blew it--by affronting the media themselves.

The network chiefs were knowingly going to air a cynical, free, fucking commercial. Their reacting to Trump 's insult to their own importance by refusing to put his commercial on TV is hardly an act of principle.
