First of all, I hate to get political. But this just has to be said. The media has made a mockery of democracy in the 2016 US elections. Truthfully, it's quite simple to understand what is happening. The media is feeding people with what they want to consume as opposed to what they need to. Donald Trump sells. So you find Trump everywhere. People love consuming news on/about him. And more consumption leads to more revenue as far as the news networks are concerned.
