We were looking for the wrong inflection point

President Trump said he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and still count on his base’s support. Media, politicians and longtime political operatives predicted again and again that THIS (whatever the outrage of the day) would be the final straw. Not repealing Obamacare as promised? Nope, that had little if any effect. Equating neo-Nazis and anti-Nazi protesters or endorsing Roy Moore or siding… → Read More

Another blow to Trump’s self-enrichment scheme

> The General Services Administration “ignored” concerns that President Trump’s lease on a government-owned building — the one that houses his Trump International Hotel in Washington — might violate the Constitution when it allowed Trump to keep the lease after he took office, according to a new report from the agency’s inspector general. . . The report does not recommend that Trump’s lease… → Read More

Morning Bits: Trump foreseeably trapped

President Trump hits a foreseeable pothole. “The partial government shutdown is inflicting far greater damage on the U.S. economy than the Trump administration previously estimated, the White House acknowledged. President Trump’s economists have now doubled projections of how much economic growth is being lost each week.” Only he is to blame. When Trump retreats, it’s foreseeable the Islamic… → Read More

Barr was dead wrong on one key point

Attorney general nominee William P. Barr generally acquitted himself well during the long day of testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. He gave the impression of someone who is his own man, unlikely to comply with the president’s orders, if any, to interfere with investigations. He stood up for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, contradicting President Trump’s… → Read More

What Kasich can do to help

Republican John Kasich is now the former governor of Ohio. That means he’s got time on his hands. According to reports, he signed with United Talent Agency and will join either CNN or MSNBC soon. Every speech or interview he gives likely will be interpreted through the prism of 2020. (Does X mean he is running as a Republican? An independent?) Frankly, before seeing how President Trump fares,… → Read More
