“The Donald Trump of the Left; Larry Lessig may have the most distorted views of what the presidency is.”

Seth Masket at Pacific Standard:

Overall, Lessig seems to be treating the presidency as a symbol, or simply a bulletin board on which to attach his reform manifesto. The presidency may be those things (and has certainly been used as such by many others before Lessig), but it’s also an actual job. Lessig has displayed no interest in holding it. His whole campaign is a gimmick, and this does his reform ideas no favors.
