1. can you imagine obama (or any black man) or hillary (or any woman) talking like trump?

running for president and getting anything remotely like the favorable media coverage trump has received?

for the moment, the media is finally less than favorable in their treatment of him, though they're less pointing out his flaws and more pointing out his low poll numbers and reaction to them.

if he picks up in the polls, he'll be the comeback kid and the media will fall all over him again.


no drama obama has consistently been mr. cool precisely to avoid the "angry black man" stereotype (well, that and the fact that cool is no doubt natural to his personality), and hillary has similiarly walked a line because women have to look tough without being, you know, well, there's a negative stereotype for angry women as well.

but an angry and mean and insulting rich white man, especially republican, somehow that's normal and ok and not in the least unpresidential.
