President Barack Obama on Friday urged voters to judge Republican Donald Trump’s candidacy not as “entertainment” but by asking themselves whether his proposals and pronouncements are plausible and detailed.  

With Trump’s opponents having bowed out of the race for the GOP nomination, Obama seemed to open what could be a six-month conversation with voters by reminding them that “this is not entertainment, this is not a reality show.”
