What I found amazing watching Trump's festivities was that he knew what was going on and played it so well. There are a couple of things that he struggles in doing, but creating reality TV isn't one of them. The family pause at Lincoln's foot was something that couldn't have been scripted better. If there's one thing that Trump can overcome, it's the negative PR that he may have brought about himself. Don't be surprised that he's going to spend a lot of time trying to fix that.
