TONY SCHWARTZ: Chris, you're setting up, as I've heard you in the last ten minutes, a false equivalency. This is the problem I think in the media, is that they're treating Trump as if he is a legitimate candidate for president of the United States. There is no way he is. No more than my two-year-old grandson would be a legitimate candidate for president. And if the media treated my two-year-old grandson as someone who could be president, that would be scary. But when they treat Trump, who has no attention span, who has only a profound self-interest, who has no experience, and only has his inflated confidence as a qualification, it's terrifying. It's terrifying.
