His discomfort with showing empathy in public

Aug 8th, 2019 10:46 am | By

The Times is cold about Trump’s campaign stops in Dayton and El Paso yesterday.

Trump’s schedule was meant to follow the traditional model of apolitical presidential visits with victims, law enforcement officials and hospital workers after calamities like the mass shootings that resulted in 31 deaths in Dayton and El Paso and that created a new sense of national crisis over assault weapons and the rise of white supremacist ideology.

That plan went awry even before Trump, who has acknowledged his discomfort with showing empathy in public, departed Washington. On Tuesday night, he attacked on Twitter the former Democratic congressman from El Paso, Beto O’Rourke, and as he prepared to leave the White House on Wednesday morning, he went after

Aaron Rupar at Vox covered Trump’s Cincinnati rally at Vox but before I get to that I want to say something about the photo above his piece.

It’s shamingly easy to find pictures like that of Trump, and impossible to find any where he looks like a reasonable sensible grown-up human. The hair alone rules that out, and the hair isn’t all. But the thing is…you don’t see pictures like that of other political figures talking. Even Mitch McConnell, even Lindsey Graham – you don’t see photos of them rolling their eyes and screeching like lunatics. Trump? They’re everywhere. He looks unhinged…and that’s because he is.

Photos can be very misleading, but in Trump’s case they convey … Read the rest

Horrifying evidence of a disordered personality

Radio Free Tom sums it up.

I’ll just quote the rest.

  • These are the same Republicans – my former tribe – who pointed to every slip of the tongue by Hillary Clinton as evidence of fatal illness. Who took a dumb hot mic aside from Obama to Medvedev as treason. Who parsed every word from every Democrat for signs of betrayal. /2

On charges of shooting unarmed civilians

May 19th, 2019 10:40 am | By

What fresh horror is this?

Donald Trump has asked for files to be prepared on pardoning several US military members accused of or convicted of war crimes, including one slated to stand trial on charges of shooting unarmed civilians while in Iraq, the New York Times reported.

War crimes. My god. What next? Is he going to try to overturn the Nuremberg convictions? Declare sainthood for Hitler and Goebbels and Himmler? Hang portraits of Milošević and Mladić in the East Room? Erect statues of Stalin and Pol Pot in the Rose Garden?

According to the Times, which cited two unnamed US officials, Trump requested the immediate preparation of paperwork needed, indicating he is considering pardons for the men

Foreigners fleeing violence and persecution: stay out

Sep 17th, 2018 4:21 pm | By

Because there’s not enough news today (by the way, Trump just slapped more tariffs on China), the Nazi president has slashed the number of refugees he will allow into the country.

President Trump plans to cap the number of refugees that can be resettled in the United States next year at 30,000, his administration announced on Monday, further cutting an already drastically scaled-back program that offers protection to foreigners fleeing violence and persecution.

Thirty thousand. It’s a small town. It’s a big university…but not even all that big: the University of Washington here in Seattle has an enrollment of 46 thousand.

The number represents the lowest ceiling a president has placed on the refugee program since its creation in

Trump lies again

Trump being exceptionally disgusting even for him.

The Democratic candidate for governor of Virginia is “fighting for” violent gangs? How likely is that?

Greg Sargent at the Post explains:

This attack is absurd. Ed Gillespie, the GOP candidate, has been running ads that make the similar claim that Ralph Northam, the Democratic candidate, “voted in favor of sanctuary cities that let dangerous illegal immigrants back on the street, increasing the threat of MS-13.” As lieutenant governor, Northam did cast a tiebreaking vote against a bill that would have prevented any

A president out of control

Aug 15th, 2017 6:22 pm | By

Stephen Collinson at CNN doesn’t mince words.

A combative and unrestrained President Donald Trump opened his authentic political soul, in possibly the most memorable news conference in presidential history, that is certain to become a defining moment of his administration.

It was supposed to be a routine event at Trump Tower in New York to tout the President’s infrastructure plan.

But the session quickly veered off course into one of the most surreal political moments in years as Trump unloaded about the fallout from the weekend’s protests by “alt-right” activists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis in Virginia.

Gesticulating with this right hand, Trump blasted what he called the “alt-left,” protested that he had already condemned neo-Nazis and parroted far-right talking

The whole hideous thing, in case you want to consult it.

The “Nazis: bad or good?” part starts around 7:30.

The “both groups” part starts around 14:30.

There are way too many guest appearances by the word “harrible.”

Lived experience

That was an awful experience. Painfully, squirmingly, let me out of here awful.

I hate watching the way he bares his lower lip so that you see his teeth – it’s so ugly and hostile and wolfish.

I hate, as always, watching his dreadful stunted clumsy gestures.

I hate hearing him say CHInah over and over again. He says “China” the normal way when it’s “the China sea” but when he names the country it’s CHInah every time. He also says – less often – JaPAN, with the same dopy aggressive emphasis.

I hate his word salad.

I hate his stunted vocabulary. I hate all the “very very” this and “he’s a fantastic guy” that.

I hate how dim he … Read the rest

Trump gets angry at the news media when they publish unbecoming photos of him. In general I think people should not be attacked on the basis of how they look, but the thing about Trump is that he’s so very often making horrible faces in aid of making some horrible point. I don’t think the news media are stooping or being cruel when they publish photos of that kind.

This is who he is

Nov 22nd, 2016 7:59 am | By

Yesterday Trump held a “summit” with some people from the news media – and pitched a Hitler-style fit at them for covering him in such a meany unfair way.

I wish I were joking.

David Remnick heard from people who were there.

He points out the obvious: that any idea that the job would make Trump a wiser and better human is dead as a stone.

First came the obsessive Twitter rants directed at “Hamilton” and “Saturday Night Live.” Then came Monday’s astonishing aria of invective and resentment aimed at the media, delivered in a conference room on the twenty-fifth floor of Trump Tower. In the presence of television executives and anchors, Trump whined about everything from NBC News
