Trump’s attacks on Alicia Machado demonstrate he’s easily controlled – Ezra Klein, Vox
When you’re up against someone with a short temper who brags about never backing down from a fight, you can make that person dance like your little pet monkey. Which is exactly what the Clinton campaign has done.
… imagine that this wasn’t a presidential campaign. Imagine it was the Trump presidency. And imagine it wasn’t Hillary Clinton trying to bait Trump into attacking Alicia Machado, but ISIS trying to bait Trump into attacking Iraq, or Vladimir Putin trying to bait Trump into breaking with NATO, or Angela Merkel trying to bait Trump into isolating the United States before a key vote at the United Nations, or China trying to bait Trump into giving them an excuse to assert their claim over Taiwan.
