The mainstream media knew exactly what they were doing when all they did was give trump all of the love and support over the other 16 republicans candidates. Candidates who were more qualified and experienced to serve than Trump.
The media knew all along the issues in Trump's past. The issues with his taxes and that he would be unable to be a discipline candidates. It played right into their narrative, which is to show how great a candidate Hillary Clinton is and how horrible the GOP is and they have done an excellent job thus far.
However, the media is miscalculating the depth of the anger felt by millions of American people. That anger isn't just at the bureaucrats in Washinton, but also at the media because the American people recognize that the media manipulates things for their own gain, and like those in Washington the American people are tired of being lied to and taking advantage of. Trump may very well become the next president of the United States if people continue to miscalculate the extent of anger felt by the American people.
