  • Bergstein: Trump And The Courts

    As a candidate, Trump displayed a shocking misunderstanding of settled constitutional values. On one occasion, he suggested that flag burners go to jail and lose their citizenship.

    Rasmus: Is Trump Really President?

    Is it a presidency where he makes his late night calls to his moneybag friends, like the billionaire Mercers and others, to find out “How am I doing guys’’? while the rest of the representatives of the economic and political elite run the show?

  • Boardman: Trump Inaugural “This American Carnage” Annotated

    Is there any possible truth in this promise from a candidate who lost the popular vote, the vote of the people? What mechanism has Trump even hinted at that would provide for greater local government control anywhere? Trump’s determination to cut back on regulations is designed to empower corporations, not local governments, and certainly not individuals

  • Winship: Donald Trump’s Mission Creep Just Took A Giant Leap Forward
