By insulting other people? Please, he has to have MORE experiences and respect for other people before he decides to run for president, and besides, I don't think he has what it takes to become president, sorry, Sharon.:(

On Amy Schumer, and why everyone takes criticism so badly on the internet.
In this installment of the Illipsis, Jay Smooth looks at the very human tendency, especially among comedians, to respond to criticism defensively.

+Jay Smooth The curiosity of how well you'd be able to take your own advice is powerful, but I've just discovered your work and don't have any actual criticisms. I promise you I'll extend you the compliment of holding you accountable when you show your fallible side. I only hope I can manage it with the grace you just did for Ms. Schumer.
