Trump’s campaign against voter fraud is foolish

  Four months ago this week, I wrote this about Donald Trump: Remember his explanation of why he apparently lost to Hillary Clinton by nearly 3 million votes in the tally of popular votes in last year’s presidential election? He said it was a case of massive voter fraud and promised to order a full-scale investigation of the matter. But the issue now seems to have been forgotten. Even Republican election officials around the country have said they’ve seen no evidence of voter fraud in the November election, and Trump...

Here’s an indicator of how much legal trouble Trump faces

  One thing we can say for sure about Donald Trump’s weird obsession with tweeting is that it helps entertain us while we’re all waiting for charges to emanate from the  special Justice Department investigation of Russian meddling in last year’s election. Nobody knows for sure if any criminal charges will arise from the probe, but there’s at least one indicator that some pretty big fish will get scooped up in the government’s net. Some talking head on television whose identity escaped my attention recently...

Trump already is one of the most important presidents in American history

  Donald Trump’s pathetic legislative record in the first five-plus months of his presidency doesn’t necessarily diminish his status as one of the most important chief executives we’ve ever had.

A summary of Trump’s almost countless lies

  There’s some validity to the widespread notion that most, if not all, politicians regularly peddle dishonest rhetoric.  But one of the 14 U.S. presidents we’ve had in my lifetime has distinguished himself as perhaps the most dishonest occupant of the office we’ve ever had. I refer, of course, to our current chief executive, Donald J. Trump, who’s been on the job for little more than five months.  Mind you, I’m not talking about differences of opinion on matters of governance. I’m not addressing the...

I don’t think President Trump will ever be impeached

    The way I figure it, odds are against  the impeachment of President Donald Trump. But I still think he’ll be gone before the term to which he was elected lapses. He’s more likely to resign than endure the disapproval of a legislative body controlled by his own party. I won’t itemize here the many good reasons why Trump should be ousted. Suffice it to say that the list is growing — and it will become unbearable if solid evidence arises showing that Trump colluded with the Russians in messing with last...
