That was the conclusion of a commenter on AZBlueMeanie's post at Blog for Arizona. Meanie wraps up his analysis of Trump's popularity and the role of the media.
"The Donald" has disrupted and divided the conservative media entertainment complex and the Tea-Publican Party.
This is not necessarily something to celebrate. Larry Wilmore from The Nightly Show cautions, If Trump Continues To Rise In The Polls, The Joke Might Be On Us:
After showing one Trump supporter saying that people had better be careful about making fun of Trump because he very well could become our next president, Wilmore told his audience, "This is the part that actually scares me." He continued.
WILMORE: It would be easy for me to stereotype Trump’s supporters as dumb, stupid voters who aren’t paying attention to issues and just reacting emotionally, but it’s possible they could just be like the Joker and just want to watch the world burn.
But that’s why the Republican debate is so important. If the Joker wins tomorrow and becomes even more popular, and continues to rise in the polls, the joke just might be on us.
Here is the comment.

Trump is the result of dysfunction in both parties. Having returned from a vacation where I asked cab drivers, bus drivers, mid Western residents, hotel clerks, etc. — who they were supporting for president — the overwhelming majority said Trump. Believe that Trump is only supported by Tea Party Republicans at your own peril.
It can't happen here, my a$$.
