Trump trolling for fun and profit

Byron York, Washington Examiner

For some in the media and politics, Trump derangement is more than a syndrome. It is a business — show business. It is a way to expand one's audience and gain influence.

On the politics side, trolling the president can raise the profile of even the most marginal group. Trump trolling can lead to what (#NeverTrumper) Liz Mair experienced — more visibility, more influence, and more money. And in the media and politics business, that's good for the bottom line.
