SAM STEIN: What struck me about the defense of Donald Trump wasn't -- well, I guess it's is this. It's that people are going out there and saying if he just, you know, stuck to script, if just read off the teleprompter, if he just is more seasoned as a politician, this would be fine, as if, and implicit in that, his actual world views are OK, we can stomach this so long as he acts well.
