David Waldman makes it to the end of the week, with Donald Trump spiraling out of control, further into deception, dishonesty, dumb-assery, and of course rising in polls. David annotates the latest Trump Campaign press release: 

“In 2011, Mr. Trump was finally able to bring this ugly incident to its conclusion (NO) by successfully compelling President Obama to release his birth certificate (NO). Mr. Trump did a great service to the President (NO) and the country (NO) by bringing closure (NO) to the issue that Hillary Clinton and her team first raised (NO). Inarguably, Donald J. Trump is a closer (NO). Having successfully obtained (NO) President Obama’s birth certificate when others could not (NO) , Mr. Trump believes that President Obama was born in the United States. (Who the F cares)”

Armando calls in for a discussion of ethics, and competence, in journalism.
