Mr. Obama avoided uttering Donald Trump's name. But the billionaire's demand after the Orlando massacre that he should resign as president for refusing to use the term radical Islam has clearly enraged him. So there is no magic to the phrase 'radical Islam'. It's a political talking point. It's not a strategy. From Donald Trump, a tougher-worded response, to question the president's patriotism.

And it's a particular sore point for Hillary Clinton, who was at an ongoing scandal over her personal email server while she was secretary of state. So this just brings all that back to the circus.
