Trump Quietly Signs Russia Sanctions Bill

Trump signed the bill without cameras, sending out a statement later in the morning saying that despite his belief that parts of the measure were unconstitutional, he was signing it into law for the “sake of national unity.”

Why Trump Could Never Be A Putinesque Strongman

What did Vladimir Putin think he was getting? Is it possible that he mistook an egotistical buffoon like Donald J. Trump for an apprentice strongman? If so, he badly misunderstands America. It’s not simply Russia with better plumbing. Granted, Trump himself lacks the self-discipline for autocracy. But he also lacks the servile population.

Trump Forces A GOP Retreat On Russia

Obama was vilified as a Russian patsy for actions that don’t remotely approach what we know Trump and his circle have done. Today, all but a few congressional Republicans avert their eyes and swallow their tongues.

Trump’s G-20: A World-Class Presidential “Kayfabe”

At the White House level, the U.S. doesn’t have a foreign policy. Trumpism is best understood as a cult of personality with a world-view rooted in WWE professional wrestling, where race, ethnicity and tribal loyalties prevail.

By the time you read this, the historic meeting in Hamburg between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will be over and — notwithstanding the propensity of both principals to lie their asses off — we will know something about what transpired. But as the Morning Joe crew noted earlier today, Trump’s behavior in the hours […]

Did Obama “Choke” When Kremlin Attacked Our Election?

Fewer than two months ago, on May 10, 2017, President Trump invited two Russian diplomats into the White House to celebrate his firing of FBI Director James Comey. Having boasted on national TV that he’d removed Comey as a means of relieving pressure from the “fake news” investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential […]

Was Trump Cabinet’s Loyalty Ritual Funny — Or Scary?

To the Wall Street billionaires, politicians, and captains of industry who surround the president, loyalty equates with obsequious, sycophantic praise for Trump himself.

Danziger: Backasswards Back Channel

It isn’t easy to identify with Jared Kushner, the young master of the universe whose “back channel” to Russia has left him in the FBI’s clutches. But Danziger thinks Putin just might sympathize.

Report: Kushner Met Secretly With Russians, Proposed Covert Back Channel

FBI scrutiny of Kushner began when intelligence reports of Flynn’s contacts with Russians included mentions of U.S. citizens, whose names were redacted because of U.S. privacy laws. This prompted investigators to ask U.S. intelligence agencies to reveal the names of the Americans, the current U.S. law enforcement official said. Kushner’s was one of the names that was revealed, the official said, prompting a closer look at the president’s son-in-law’s dealings with Kislyak and other Russians.

Danziger: And When I Touch You, I Feel Happy Inside

Poor Donald Trump. All he wanted to do was hold his wife’s hand — and she slapped his paw away in public. But as Danziger would remind him, at least he still has Putin.

GOP Majority Leader Told Colleagues In 2016: “Putin Pays” Trump

“There’s . . . there’s two people I think Putin pays: [California Republican Rep. Dana] Rohrabacher and Trump,” said House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy at a private meeting of Republican Congressional leaders last June. When his colleagues laughed, McCarthy added, “Swear to God.”

Danziger: His Ignorance Is Timeless

Whatever vanity impels Trump to talk about Andrew Jackson, Danziger considers his remarks about the Civil War indicative of deep and dangerous stupidity.
