[Content Note: Bigotry.]

It's pretty terrific (ahem) how members of the media are suddenly interested in talking about how dangerous Donald Trump is now that he's won something.

Now he's not the hilarious entertainment with which they've been delighting themselves for months, but a potential president whose wretched policies might personally affect them.

You know, some of us have been pointing out that Trump is dangerous for months.

Because his rhetoric of bigotry is harmful, whether he wins an election or just stands in front of a microphone.

Of course, that didn't much matter to the privileged gatekeepers of the media who aren't the targets of his identity-based obscenity.

It should have.

And maybe if it had, he wouldn't have just won a primary with 35% of the vote.
