If you've somehow managed to completely avoid the bizarre media frenzy surrounding Donald Trump's increasingly baffling presence in American politics, then good for you. The feeling of not knowing exactly which level of assholery Trump has achieved at any given time is, without a doubt, a very rewarding kind of bliss. At any rate, Trump is still a highly publicized participant in the Republican circus.
