If you're going to stage a photo op that you'd like your campaign to insist is not a photo op, then you've got to at least give it a try. Donald Trump spent several hours in Baton Rouge Friday, and even thought this was a "no press allowed," totally "nonpolitical" event, pool cameras caught every second, including Trump telling supporters he was just there to "help out," and the sum total of time Trump actually did spend "helping out" by posing for pictures while half-assedly unloading Play-Doh from a truck:
Forty-nine seconds it took. Forty-nine seconds for Trump to tire of pretending to help unload Play-Doh from a truck. Just be glad Palin wasn't there, she'd have tried to use the Play-Doh to fix somebody's house. Or just eaten it.
