The Inside Skinny on Obama's Condemnation of Trump

A very well-connected politician friend responds to my guess that Obama's strange statement against Donald Trump was actually a gambit to shore up support for Trump against Ted Cruz:
I half agree with your speculation. I do think Obama called out Trump intentionally and wisely - and that Obama knows he helps Trump by doing so. But I don’t think blocking Ted Cruz per se is the goal, simply building up a man (Trump) who (by any conventional standard) is unelectable is sufficient motivation. Sure is a wild election.
