Trump Administration Has No Plan To Reunite Immigrant Families

  More than 2,300 immigrant kids have been taken from their parents and scattered across the country by the federal government, and President Donald Trump seems to have no coherent plan about how to reunite these families. Even worse, it’s not clear whether the administration has actually stopped carrying out these separations, as Trump has […]

Child-Snatching At The Border: Is This Who We Are?

Let’s face it: Donald Trump enjoys hurting and humiliating people, and that’s the thing some of his loudest supporters like about him. Making women and children cry makes him feel manly and powerful. The more defenseless, the better. He particularly enjoys punishing racial minorities. See, when his victims have no ability to respond, Trump can […]

Danziger: The Big Shot

A bully-boy who once boasted that he would “take a bullet” for boss Trump, Michael Cohen looks more likely to take a shot of whiskey just before squealing.

Danziger: Making America Grate Again

Nuclear diplomacy is far better than nuclear war, which Trump threatened only months ago. But his bubbly praise of North Korea’s tyrant is still nauseating.

With Major Concession To Kim, Trump Gets ‘Denuclearization’ — Minus Details

Emerging from their summit in Singapore, President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un proclaimed that they had reached an historic deal to denuclearize the Korean peninsula. But while the details of the nuclear agreement would be left to future talks, Trump immediately agreed to end military exercises with South Korea. “We’re ready […]

Danziger: ‘Kim Jong Un Is The Kindest, Bravest, Warmest…’

Maybe the obvious explanation for Trump’s behavior — from coddling the North Korean dictator to dismantling the Western alliance — is that the Russians or Chinese have brainwashed him.

Yes, Kim Kardashian Is Trump’s Smartest Adviser

Thanks to Kim Kardashian Trump has at last done something right. Even if just one injustice is corrected, the occasion is worth celebrating.

Danziger: Oh Say Can You See?

Unsurprisingly, a president who constantly soils his office and his country’s reputation will seek to wrap himself in the flag. (Too bad he doesn’t know the words to the national anthem.)

Danziger: Up In The Air

The latest tweets by Donald Trump — along with statements from his nutty lawyer Rudy Giuliani — sound increasingly Nixonian. Which suggests this will not end well for him.

Danziger: Fat City

While Kim Jong Un builds nuclear weapons, the North Koreans literally starve. But their leader obviously eats well off their plates and expects our taxpayers to treat him to Singapore’s finest.

Danziger: Trading Down

American allies confronted with Trump’s mercurial ignorance and ruinous policies have tried to stroke his ego in hopes of calming him. But the polite, patient Canadians have had enough.

Danziger: The Leader Of The Free World

From Riyadh to Moscow to Beijing, Trump’s supplication to despotic rulers has diminished American prestige. Is he bowing down to enrich himself? And does that still matter?

Trump Probe Began With Russian Messages Intercepted By NSA

As Trump and his minions poured out mesmerizing disinformation last weekend about the origins of the Russia probe, a bracing slap of reality was delivered by Observer.com, a news website owned by the Kushner family (and once known as the New York Observer, a weekly newspaper where I formerly worked.) Observer columnist John Schindler, a former […]

Trump’s North Korea Failure Was Predictable — And It Won’t Be The Last

Well before he pretended on Thursday to “cancel” his planned June summit with Kim Jong-un — which North Korea effectively cancelled several days ago — Trump’s bungling was obvious.
