Natural-born hater: Trump’s vicious, cowardly smear of Kamala Harris

Natural-born hater: Trump’s vicious, cowardly smear of Kamala Harris

Donald Trump’s un-American character revealed itself again Thursday evening as he deviously raised doubts about Joe Biden’s choice for vice president. “I heard it today that she doesn’t meet the requirements,” Trump mused, playing his patented “people are saying” smear game to suggest that Kamala Harris just might not be eligible to be president because she has a mother from India and a father from Jamaica. Advertisement Hear those words, all whose parents hail from elsewhere. Mark them down, all who came from far-flung countries to give your children the promise of American citizenship....

Dear God: Trump turns religion into a political weapon

Dear God: Trump turns religion into a political weapon

Yes, Donald Trump actually said it. After repeating the ridiculous lie that Joe Biden wants to “take away your guns, destroy your Second Amendment,” Trump spouted an even more desperate canard: “no religion, no anything. Hurt the Bible, hurt God. He’s against God, he’s against guns.” The fact that a man who called Barack Obama now claims that a is an enemy of the Almighty gives us the perfect opportunity to introduce the 14th item in : He shamelessly turns faith into a political cudgel, cheapening religion and dishonoring the American spirit. Advertisement Trump is, , . Nor is the...

Un embarrassing failure: Trump’s threat-followed-by-love-letter diplomacy with North Korea has been disastrous

Un embarrassing failure: Trump’s threat-followed-by-love-letter diplomacy with North Korea has been disastrous

Three years ago today, President Trump, irked that North Korea‘s totalitarian dictator had hurled bellicose rhetoric at America, promised that “any more threats” “will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.” That swaggering, reckless promise to answer words with nukes played directly into the hands of Kim Jong Un, who uses the phantom menace of an imminent American attack to build up an atomic arsenal. Advertisement Astonishingly, the incendiary words were only the beginning of a dangerous farce. Trump would go on to repeatedly overpromise and underdeliver, squandering...

Swan dive: Trump’s latest interview reveals a clueless, shameless, dissembling president bereft of COVID answers

Swan dive: Trump’s latest interview reveals a clueless, shameless, dissembling president bereft of COVID answers

Wielding a rigorous scalpel that would make David Frost envious, Axios reporter Jonathan Swan eviscerated President Trump . While Trump offered jaw-dropping responses on several topics — and failing again to explain — his incomprehensibility on the coronavirus offers . Trump claimed the pandemic is “under control”; Swan reminded him that deaths, having dipped, again top 1,000 a day. The reality of more than 150,000 deaths garnered a Trump shrug: “They’re dying. It’s true. It is what it is.” Advertisement Trump then fumbled and shuffled misleading charts showing U.S. deaths low as a...

In Obama’s shadow: Facing historic failures, Trump chronically shifts blame to his predecessor

In Obama’s shadow: Facing historic failures, Trump chronically shifts blame to his predecessor

Sure, incoming presidents deflect responsibility for certain problems to predecessors. But doing so nearly four years later? It’s Donald Trump doesn’t deserve re-election. During Tuesday’s House Judiciary hearing, Attorney General Bill Barr was asked if President Trump was wrong back in March for refusing responsibility for coronavirus testing failures. Barr’s response, “The problem with the testing system was a function of President Obama’s mishandling at the CDC and efforts to centralize everything in the CDC.” Advertisement That’s been a Trump tactic for months — trying to hand to the...

He vilifies the press: Trump undermines the watchdogs of democracy

He vilifies the press: Trump undermines the watchdogs of democracy

The tic is so routine, the nation rarely notices anymore. “Fake news,” the president snipes when asked a question he dislikes. The media is the “enemy of the people,” he shouts on Twitter morning, noon and night. The barrage of invective demands more than an eye roll; it is Trump must not remain in power another four years. Advertisement We don’t care about the hurt feelings of reporters; thrusting and parrying with the man at the bully pulpit comes with the territory. We do care about the credible claims Trump has abused the power of the federal government to because its CEO also owns the...

The protest test: Demonstrators must deprive Trump of the violent images he most craves

The protest test: Demonstrators must deprive Trump of the violent images he most craves

Our hearts are with the protests sparked by the killing of George Floyd, which continue in the streets of American cities. They aim to shine an unforgiving spotlight on stubborn structural racism pervading society. But as unrest grows in intensity in reaction to the overzealous, anti-American federal crackdown ordered by President Trump in Portland, demonstrators must take care not to feed the very beast they seek to remove from office. Whether or not “law and order” Trump is largely responsible for escalating tensions (and he is), the perception that chaos is overrunning cities risks...

Equal for every person: Thirty years ago, the U.S. did a great thing; now, New York City and the nation must realize the Americans with Disabilities Act’s promise

Equal for every person: Thirty years ago, the U.S. did a great thing; now, New York City and the nation must realize the Americans with Disabilities Act’s promise

Coronavirus claimed as an early victim in March, New York City’s oldest procession, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, an annual celebration since 1762. The virus also claimed the newest, the Disability Pride Parade, held every July since 2015 to commemorate the Americans with Disabilities Act, signed into federal law 30 years ago this day. At least the virus is canceling parades equally, unlike society, which continues to treat people with disabilities differently than other folks. Advertisement Yes, there has been great progress in the three decades since the ADA, a lifechanging piece of...

Count every valid ballot: Make every effort to tally legitimately arriving votes, even those lacking postmarks

Count every valid ballot: Make every effort to tally legitimately arriving votes, even those lacking postmarks

Four weeks later, as counting absentee ballots from the June 23 primary continues, it’s clear that huge numbers of New Yorkers wanted to exercise their right to vote while staying safe from coronavirus. That’s the good part, proof that representative democracy can survive a nasty pandemic. The bad part, although not terrible, is that we are still waiting to find out who won in some key contests. Getting it right is the most important thing. Advertisement While all absentee ballots were smartly sent out with postage-paid return envelopes, sometimes those envelopes weren’t postmarked or...

Corrupter in chief: No conflict here — business interests Trump U.S. foreign policy

President Trump is the ultimate corrupter, subsuming the national interest to whatever benefits him personally or politically. That doesn’t stop at the water’s edge and is .
