Why do we Keep Debating Trump's Dumb Ideas?

ay what you want about his flimsy policy knowledge, his unadulterated blurting and his intolerance for facts -- and I've said plenty -- but Donald Trump is a master at setting the agenda.
Every couple of weeks he spits an idea into the ether -- usually of the same gelatinous integrity as most loogies -- and it magically finds itself regurgitated by every cable news program, late night show, campaign trail press gaggle and American dinner table.
The latest? Campaign rival Sen. Ted Cruz's eligibility to become President.
Before you rush over to Google, don't bother. Cruz is totally eligible to become president. But that hasn't stopped us from entertaining Trump's newest spitball as a thing to "Discuss" with a capital "D".
A brief tour of Trump's previous talkers reads like a syllabus from Faber College.
There was the week-plus we spent debating what he meant when he said blood was coming out of Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly's "whatever." He ultimately claimed "nose."
Then there was the time we almost didn't at all believe him when he said he was talking about Carly Fiorina's "persona" when he said, "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?"
