Danziger: The Buck Stops…Somewhere

This week Trump tried to blame the misconduct of his former national security adviser Michael Flynn on the previous administration (which fired Flynn before Trump hired him). Because, as Danziger observes, nothing is ever, ever, ever his fault.

Danziger: A Commitment To Public Self-Service

Danziger can’t help but notice the self-dealing and grasping attitudes that permeate the Trump White House, since they infect everything from “ethics” policies and the entertainment of foreign dignitaries to the administration’s new tax proposals. Of course, Trump is a lot smarter than someone like Lincoln.

Danziger: One Day In The Life Of Alexei Navalny

With growing dissatisfaction in Russia over Vladimir Putin’s corrupt regime, his most prominent critic and political opponent Alexei Navalny can expect to be thrown in prison again — precisely as drawn by Danziger.

Danziger: If The Shoe Fits

With Bill O’Reilly’s departure, his big grimy boots are being filled by Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson — whom Danziger doesn’t seem to consider a great improvement.

Danziger: Lost At Sea

To Danziger, Donald Trump is someone whose naval command should be limited to the bathtub (or perhaps the hot-tub at Mar-a-Lago). The risks of losing an “armada” are much too high.

Danziger on sanctuary cities

Danziger: You Can’t Fight City Hall

To Danziger, the operative word in the phrase “sanctuary cities” is cities — and he frankly doesn’t expect the mayors of tough towns like New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Los Angeles to knuckle under to a clown like the attorney general.

Danziger on health care

Danziger: It May Kill You First

Danziger is looking forward to the next iteration of the Republican replacement for Obamacare — although it can hardly be as much fun as the last one.

Danziger on deported Dreamer

Danziger: What Happens To A Dream Deported?

Danziger knows that ever since Donald Trump vowed not to deport the immigrant “dreamers” protected by Deferred Action of Childhood Arrival — as he did — they were inevitably doomed. Now one of them has alleged that he was deported last February, and is suing the Trump administration in federal court. And he judge who will hear his case? Gonzalo Curiel, calm and cool target of a racist verbal assault by Trump last year.

Danziger: We’re In Deepest Kimchi

When Donald Trump sends Mike Pence to deal with the North Korean nuclear threat, Danziger worries — and it’s impossible not to worry about these ill-informed weenies in control of the world’s security.

Danziger on O'Reilly

Danziger: That’s A Lot Of Hail Marys

Abandoned by advertisers shunning his sexual harassment cooties, Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly is on “vacation” — and Danziger sees him at the Vatican, seeking absolution for his sins. That’s a lot of Hail Marys.

danziger law and order

Danziger: That Good Ole Law ‘N Order

Why would Danziger suspect that Jeff Sessions, who has sworn to uphold the Constitution, would wink at police beatings of unarmed citizens? Perhaps because the Attorney General instantly set to work subverting every effort to reform local police misconduct. That’s why.

Danziger on Bannon and Manafort

Danziger: Swamp Things

With Paul Manafort long ousted from Trump’s inner circle, and Steve Bannon apparently headed toward the White House exit, Danziger foresees an ominous partnership between these practitioners of dark politics.

Danziger on trump's military

Danziger: He Bombed Again (By Opening His Mouth)

Having served in the U.S. Army, Danziger stiffened — like so many other veterans — when he heard Donald Trump refer to the nation’s armed services as “my military.” Barack Obama once used the same phrase, but somehow it sounds different when uttered by a megalomaniac.

Danziger on NATO obsolete

Danziger: The Art Of The Deal Redux

Danziger can’t help but notice that in his latest flip-flopping pronouncement about NATO — it’s “no longer obsolete” — he sounds like a used-car salesman touting a rusted-out vehicle. The western military alliance may not deserve that comparison, but he does.

danziger on bannon ouster

Danziger: Leaving So Soon?

Like everyone else, Danziger has heard those rumors about the imminent ouster of Steve Bannon, Trump “chief strategist” and fascist wannabe — who has picked an unwinnable fight with the President’s family. What kind of strategist does that?

April 12, 2017
Danziger on McConnell and Putin

Danziger: Russian Dressing Down

Having spent the past many years doing maximum possible damage to American democracy, it’s easy to imagine — as Danziger does — that Mitch McConnell would resent the Kremlin butting in. That must be why he kept the Russian hacking a secret last year.

Danziger on War and kushner

Danziger: The Best And The Brightest

Following Trump’s military strike on a Syrian airbase, his clownish administration has taken us to the brink of war — with the wise counsel, as Danziger observes, of his Harvard-educated son-in-law Jared Kushner. Doesn’t that make you feel safer?

danziger on the nuclear option

Danziger: They Bombed The Senate To Save It

Like everyone else who isn’t a politician, Danziger is bemused by the Senate Republicans’ decision to further curtail the traditional filibuster — the “nuclear option” they piously profess to regret, because it will permanently diminish the institution. But extreme partisanship now trumps any such truly conservative qualms.
