This year's Emmys feels like it was sorely focused on Trump. Typically, the Emmys are meant to award excellence in the television industry, but this year it seems that the Emmys made politics their focus. I get that Trumps antics are funny, but does he ALWAYS have to be the center of every joke? Because...
