Is Trump the administration's new enemy in chief?

Senior White House adviser David Plouffe says real estate tycoon and prospective GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is displaying "sideshow behavior" in questioning President Barack Obama's American birth and respect for the Constitution.

Plouffe said, "There's zero chance" Trump would be "hired" by the American people as president. Plouffe's comment, a riff on Trump's business-themed reality TV show, came after he was asked on ABC "This Week" about the tycoon's recent swipes at Mr. Obama.

For some reason, this administration loves to get into celebrity feuds with people they should ignore, first Limbaugh, then Beck, and now Trump.

It really is beneath the dignity of the office.
