We will be able to’t do the rest about CNN or different media shops giving the GOP frontrunner airtime.
We will be able to do something positive about ensuring he does not win once more.
Focal point at the selection. Act accordingly.

Because the interview ends, Jake Tapper, as ever, is eloquently summarizing how cheating and racist and crass Trump was once and the way the target audience laughed alongside.
The query then is: why did CNN give him a platform to do all that? #CNNTownhall
