Donald Trump says Kim Jong-un is a “smart cookie”; James Comey is a “nut job.”
Think about it.
Der Spiegel says “Donald Trump has transformed the United States into a laughing stock and he is a danger to the world. He must be removed from the White House before things get even worse.”
I agree — but how dare a foreign power try to meddle with our presidency? (Oh. Wait. )
Peggy Noonan says,
. . . The president spends his time tweeting his inane, bizarre messages—he’s the victim of a “witch hunt”—from his bed, with his iPad. And giving speeches, as he did this week at the Coast Guard Academy: “No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly.” Actually Lincoln got secession, civil war and a daily pounding from an abolitionist press that thought he didn’t go far enough and moderates who slammed his brutalist pursuit of victory. Then someone shot him in the head. . . .
The president needs to be told: Democracy is not your plaything.
Can you find 12 minutes for this Closer Look? Seth Meyers is terrific. Laughter is the best medicine.
