Robert Reich: Trump’s Presidency Is Over | Opinion

“You’d be forgiven if you hadn’t noticed. His verbal bombshells are louder than ever, but Donald Trump is no longer president of the United States.”


“By having no constructive response to any of the monumental crises now convulsing America, Trump has abdicated his office.”

“He is not governing. He’s golfing, watching cable TV and tweeting.”

Shining sunlight on Trump’s idiocy is the best disinfectant – The Washington Post


“Timothy Klausutis is right: His late wife deserves better than a president who has cynically seized on the tragic circumstances of her death at 28 and “perverted it for perceived political gain.” President Trump’s unfathomable cruelty in suggesting that then-Rep. Joe Scarborough had an affair with Lori Klausutis, an aide in his office, and murdered her almost 19 years ago, is sickening.”

“Her husband’s anguish over what he described as the “constant barrage of falsehoods, half-truths, innuendo and conspiracy theories since the day she died” is palpable in the letter he sent last week to Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey, imploring him to remove Trump’s tweets about his wife.”

‘I’m Sure for American Women, This Is Frustrating’ – The New York Times


“For the past month or so, I’ve been doing a lot of reporting on Joe Biden and Tara Reade, the former Senate aide who is accusing him of sexually assaulting her in 1993.”

“Frankly, the story is a tough one to report. Memories are hazy. There were no eyewitnesses. We have yet to find documents, including the complaint that Ms. Reade said she filed with a Senate office. (That complaint detailed only harassment — not assault, according to Ms. Reade.) And as Ms. Reade insists the assault occurred, Mr. Biden denies anything happened.”
