As a side note: does it seem like writer are taking it as a challenge to link everything to Trump? The story is easy enough to make interesting without invoking him. There are a ton of things to do a deep dive on, too! Like the epidemic of undisclosed promotion or the ridiculous amount of VC money thrown at ridiculous products.
