This is the question every Donald Trump apologist needs to answer, courtesy of James O'Brien.
Keith called James to try and deflect attention away from Trump and on to his rival Hillary Clinton. But James took series issue with his reasoning and asked him this incisive question.
“I’ll tell you what you can help me with.

“What, in Keith in Colchester's mind, actually pops up and says yeah but, that slightly complicated e-mail exchange regarding the nomination, as if it is if in any way on the scales that that would balance out all the stuff I've just listed - I'm fascinated to know your psychology?”
