Chuck Todd: Problem With Trump Is "He Doesn't Play By Set Of Rules"

He doesn't -- he plays by his own set of rules. He'll say whatever. He'll go on any platform to say it.

MICHAEL ERIC DYSON, GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY: What Rachel has suggested is that she has embraced an African-American culture, black identity that seems to run counter to what her parents desire...

CNN: ISIS "Understands Western Culture Better Than... Muslim Leaders," Sends Simple Message: Attack

KIM DOZIER, CNN: I was just at a conference of Muslim and mideast scholars trying to figure out the same thing. Why are so many of their young people being attracted to ISIS?

Krauthammer: Mainstream Media Who Wish Republicans No Good Will Lavish Trump With Enormous Coverage
