Trump-Netanyahu: Bully’s ball

Trump-Netanyahu: Bully’s ball

When Donald Trump met with Benjamin Netanyahu last week, it was a love fest. Any online dating site could have picked up the great affinity between the two men. They are hands down the two most obnoxious, arrogant leaders of any country that calls itself a democracy.

Senior Trump appointee fired after critical comments

Once estranged, they reunite over a White House meal with Cuba on the menu

President Trump broke bread with Senator Marco Rubio this week. It was a strange change of events when one considers that during the presidential primaries, then-candidate Trump and Sen. Rubio traded insults on the campaign trail, but then traded endorsements in advance of their successful runs for the presidency and reelection to the Senate.


The White House mess

The White House mess

Donald Trump sold himself to voters as a successful businessman who knew how to get things done, a no-nonsense manager who’d whip government into shape. He’s showing himself to be about the most inept, disorganized, sloppy, incompetent president in recent memory, whose White House is nearly dysfunctional.

In less than a month, the Trump administration’s actions have unleashed a widespread wave of outrage and protest. Trump’s crusade against immigrants and refugees met with a harsh response.

The Ugly American[i] on his throne

Last week Donald Trump launched his version of the Manhattan Project against the U.S. Constitution. This week he went after allies. His stupidity lies in the fact that both the Mexican president and the Australian PM represent the side of the political spectrum in both Australia and Mexico that favors a cozy relationship with the U.S.

This is the winter of America’s discontent

We are 12 days into the Presidency of Donald Trump, and we have had to endure more disruptions and tumult in our government than has been seen in a long time. Mr. Trump and his team clearly have a strategy to strike hard, strike fast and strike often.


The week Trump stood the constitution on its head

The week Trump stood the constitution on its head

During the electoral campaign, Donald Trump promised to ban Muslims from entering the United States. Last Friday, on Holocaust Remembrance Day the president took a giant step toward keeping his promise. With this action he sowed the kind of chaos, fear and anguish across the nation terrorists can only dream of creating.


Trial balloon for a coup?

Trial balloon for a coup?

This weekend was the trial balloon for a coup d’état against the United States. It gave them useful information. Trump’s decision to keep all his businesses made it fairly clear from the beginning that he was seeing this as a way to become rich[er].


Shame on you, Jared Kushner

Shame on you, Jared Kushner

Since it was Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, himself who brought his family’s Holocaust legacy into the political fray, it feels fair to force him to confront the way in which he is now party to inflicting his grandmother’s suffering on others.
