Politics Panel - "Let's troll Bernie & Hillary supporters"

Hughey Newsome, Bold.global/Move-On-Up & Donna Smith, Progressive Democrats of America & Bryan Pruitt, RedState all join Thom. The Raw Story is reporting that on the anonymous message board 4chan - someone posted a message called "Let's troll Bernie and Hillary supporters systematically." The writer explains that he or she posed as a Democratic voter and trolled supporters of both candidates to deepen democratic divisions. The troll wrote "We need to take advantage of this. This is Trump's gift. If we're serious about a Trump presidency we need to start infiltrating their conversations in order to sow more division. I'm talking systematic and long-term mischief." The user then started brainstorming Twitter hashtags to help troll Democratic voters like hashtag BloodOnHillarysHands and #HillaryKillsPOC. Is this a new norm in our political discourse - to plant trolls who will drag the conversation down and away from issues?
