Trump looms over our lives, our planet, in a way no other human being ever has, not even a Joseph Stalin or a Mao Zedong, whose images were once plastered all over the Soviet Union and China. Breaking News! -- as NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt often puts it when beginning his evening broadcast. Here, in summary, is my view of the news that’s breaking in the United States on just about any day of the week:Trump. Trump. Trump. Trump. Trump.Or rather (in the president’s style):Trump! Trump! Trump! Trump! Trump!!!!!!!!Or here’s another way of thinking about the news unmediated -- a word that's gained new resonance in the age of The Donald -- by anyone but him: below you’ll find a set of run-on tweets from you-know-who to his base -- and by that I mean not just his American fans but "the Fake News Media" that treats such messages as the catnip of their twenty-first-century lives. These particular ones are from the afternoon of November 29th and the morning of November 3...

Trump is always racing on to his (and our) next distraction. I took my first hit of speed in 1970 during my freshman year in college. That little white pill -- Dexedrine -- was a revelation. It made whatever I was doing absolutely fascinating. Amphetamine sharpened my focus and banished all appetites except a hunger for knowledge. I spent that entire night writing 35 pages of hand-scrawled notes about a 35-page article by the philosopher Ludwig Feurbach, thereby convincing the professor who would become my advisor and mentor that I was absolutely fascinating.Speed was definitely not a respectable drug in those days. I bought mine from a seedy hippie who hung out on the edge of campus with some of my edgier friends. My college was probably one of the few in the country whose infirmary actually prescribed Dexedrine for its students, presumably to keep us from buying it from guys like him.Nowadays, respectable doctors all over the country prescribe speed for people with ADHD,...

President Donald Trump's secretary of labor helped craft a plea bargain that saved a hedge fund billionaire from a long jail sentence for the sexual abuse of many teenage girls, says the Miami Herald.

In 2007, Florida multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to two felony prostitution counts in a sweetheart deal that sent him to a private wing of a minimum security prison, with a work-release program that let him go to an off-site office for 12 hours a day, six days a week, for just over a year. Prosecutors knew of at least 36 underage survivors of sex crimes committed by Epstein, but none of them were notified of the deal (this silence is a breach of federal law), and they were subsequently smeared by Epstein's lawyers who accused them of being "gold diggers." The Miami Herald has tracked down more than 80 of Epstein's victims, who were young teens when he convinced them to come to his house and committed nonconsensual and illegal sex acts with them. They were largely poor and desperate for the money that Epstein paid them, and they say he provided cash bonuses to girls who brought in more girls for him to have sex with. They also say he rejected girls who looked post-pu...

Bill Shine was forced to resign as co-president of Fox News over his personal mishandling of the rampant culture of sexual abuse, in which he abetted the company's culture of harassment, fondling, and coerced sex by its executives and on-air personalities. Surprisingly, Shine's complicity in sexual misconduct did not disqualify him from serving in a senior role in the Trump White House; he replaced Hope Hicks as the White House's Communications Director, where he has distinguished himself by failing to make the mandatory financial disclosures required of anyone serving in that role, and by illegally barring Jim Acosta from White House press conferences in retaliation for Acosta's refusal to let Trump off the hook when he failed to answer a simple question (Shine has now instituted a one-question/no-followups rule for the White House press corps). On Thanksgiving Friday, Shine belatedly filed his financial disclosure forms, which reveal that Fox News will pay Trump's new communicati...

It's one of the most troubling trends of his presidency. Whenever John Dean, Jill Wine-Banks, Dan Rather or Carl Bernstein are asked to discuss President Donald Trump’s controversies on CNN or MSNBC, a word that inevitably comes up is “Watergate.” Wine-Banks was a Watergate prosecutor in the 1970s, while Rather and Bernstein reported on Watergate extensively as journalists—and Dean served as White House counsel under the Richard Nixon Administration. Dean and Bernstein appeared together on CNN on November 20, discussing the revelation that Trump urged the Department of Justice to pursue criminal charges against Democrat Hillary Clinton and former FBI Director James Comey.Dean told CNN, “If I had to channel a little of Richard Nixon, I think he’d tell this President he’s going too far. This is the sort of stuff of a banana republic….This is a level Richard Nixon never went to, where you went after somebody’s personal well-being by a criminal prosecution.”...

Trump still yearns to “lock up” Hillary Clinton, but turns a blind eye to Jamal Khashoggi killing. Last week, the Federalist Society grand poobah Leonard Leo, widely credited as the mastermind behind Trump's extremist court-packing scheme, got into a bit of spat with another high powered conservative legal luminary. That would be George Conway, the prominent Trump critic who is also the husband of Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway. Leo was upset because Conway had started a legal organization called Checks and Balances, which is dedicated to opposing Trump's abuse of presidential power and degradation of the rule of law.Leo said he found the whole concept outrageous. Just because the president spouts off day and night wondering why the Department of Justice isn't jailing his political rivals and demanding that its top officials pledge fealty to him as he imagines Joe McCarthy's lawyer (and Trump mentor) Roy Cohn would have done -- well, isn't an abuse of power unles...

"I think the Acosta incident is... a symbol of an attempt to discredit not only CNN but the entire press corps." Speaking from his years of experience being pursued by the Obama Justice Department for simply practicing journalism and refusing to reveal his confidential sources, Intercept reporter James Risen told The Hill on Monday that President Donald Trump is building on his predecessor's war on the free press by "demagoguing" the media "in a way we haven't seen in modern American history.""Obama tried to put me in jail for seven years... A lot of conservatives try to point to me as an example of Obama on press freedom and I fully agree with the view that he had a terrible record on press freedom," Risen said. "The difference with Trump is that he is demagoguing the issue in a way we haven't seen in modern American history."Asked if, given his history, he believes the Trump White House is a greater threat to press freedom than the Obama White House was, Ris...

“He’s never been interested in going.” As President Donald Trump's egregiously disrespectful attitude toward members of the military has come under closer scrutiny, he has received an increasing amount of criticism for never having visited service members who serve overseas in dangers combat zones. While there's certainly always some risk for a president to make such trips, the military is well-equipped to plan and arrange these visits with safety as a key goal. Other wartime presidents have traditionally made such ventures. One main motivating reason is that they feel a duty to show up for soldiers who literally put their lives at risk every day at the commander-in-chief's direction.A new report from the Washington Post reveals that Trump's hesitancy is due to a very predictable reason: fear.“He’s never been interested in going,” one anonymous official told the post, referring to conversations directly with Trump.

The president spent much of his 2016 campaign deriding Hillary Clinton's use of her private email server for official business as secretary of state.

The military presence at the border was supposed to be a vital safeguard of national security. Now the Pentagon isn't even pretending it was necessary anymore. When President Donald Trump ordered the military to patrol the U.S.-Mexico border in late October, he framed it as an urgent measure to protect Americans from the Honduran migrant "caravan" trekking through Mexico toward the United States. He called the approaching asylum seekers "an assault in our country" and vowed that he would send "as many [troops] as necessary."Flash forward to mid-November. On Monday, POLITICO reported that the Pentagon plans to start calling back the troops from the border — even though the caravan is only just arriving:The Pentagon is set to begin a drawdown of its 5,800 troops from the Southwest border as early as this week, the Army commander overseeing the mission told POLITICO today — even as the approaching caravan of refugees prompted U.S. customs officers to close a port of entry n...

Trump is stepping up the attacks on the free press. CNN reporter Jim Acosta had his press credentials for the White House fully restored Monday after they had been pulled in response to his critical questioning of President Donald Trump about his anti-immigrant smears.A court had already ordered the credentials to be restored, issuing a preliminary finding that the White House had violated Acosta's right to due process. The White House had considered only restoring the pass temporarily for the time required by the judge, but it caved and issued a full restoration Monday. However, in addition to the restoration of Acosta's pass, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders issued new draconian rules for the press corps: A journalist called upon to ask a question will ask a single question and then will yield the floor to other journalists;At the discretion of the President or other White House official taking questions, a follow-up question or questions may be permitted; and where a follow up...
