What Franklin Roosevelt was to the age of radio, Trump is to the age of the screen. We are in Week 2 of the president of the United States and his communications director of six days feuding on Twitter and cable TV. The Trump-Scaramucci smackdown has, at times, distracted from the Trump-Denmark fight, which has been eclipsed, in its turn, by the Trump-Omar/Tlaib battle that has morphed into a clash between Donald Trump and Jews who vote for Democrats. This is only a schematic account of the past few days that leaves out minor, supplemental controversies over Trump retweeting a supporter calling him “the King of Israel” and Trump insulting his Federal Reserve chairman, among much else. Trump makes the hyperactive, voluble Teddy Roosevelt, whom H. G. Wells called “a big noise,” seem retiring by comparison. He makes the wrathful Andrew Jackson, who nearly blew up his administration over a tiff among the wives of his Cabinet members, look like a paragon of caution. … [Read more...] about Must the Trump Show Go On?

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- President Donald Trump is making good on his promise to do more television interviews.Trump is sitting with NBC's Chuck Todd Friday for an interview that will air Sunday on "Meet the Press."The interview will mark the first time Trump has appeared on the program since being elected president. It should be interesting TV-- Trump has repeatedly referred to the host as “Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd” for years. Of course, there’s plenty to discuss too including Trump’s last-minute decision to call off a strike against Iran, the launch of his 2020 campaign and the first Democratic primary debate next week. Another possible topic: the immigration debate, which Todd injected himself into when he criticized Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for calling migrant detention facilities “concentration camps.”The “Meet the Press” appearance comes a week after Trump’s interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC and a few days after he sat … [Read more...] about Trump to go on ‘Meet the Press’ for first time as president

It’s going to be a bad hair night when the Hell Toupees headline one of those ever affordable free shows Friday night at the Sans Souci in Ventura. And yup, it’s definitely what you think it is, the Hell Toupees are just another check on that endless list of bands that will not be playing for President Trump. The Hell Toupees, with seemingly perfect cred to qualify as White House on-hold music, play punk rock and as with many in that genre, they’re funny, too. That evaluation may, however, depend on who you voted for in 2016 but the band inevitably kicks off with their hoped for hit, "Make America Hate Again." Theories abound as to the status and identity of whatever it is on the president’s dome. It is said the president fears any and all bad hair days, particularly those involving wind and the rain. That inconvenient down pour in November allegedly forced his cancellation of an event to honor our WWI dead buried just outside Paris. Anticipating … [Read more...] about Band Hell Toupees’ lyrics cover what’s going on in nation
Trump's lies and reversals are not due to mental illness but because he reacts to people and situations in the moment, with no thought of future or past. When I saw CNN’s Jake Tapper suddenly blurt out, “What the hell is going on?” in an online video the other day, I thought I’d better speak up. Like millions of people around the world, Tapper has become increasingly baffled by President Donald Trump’s odd behaviors: sucking up to Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, then rewriting his own words the next day; scolding British Prime Minister Theresa May in an interview in The Sun, then denying that he ever did so when he was in May’s presence hours later; lying, reversing himself, lying again, then lying about the lies. Come up with your own list of peculiar and often contradictory Trump statements — about women, the Access Hollywood tape, immigrants, Charlottesville, gun rights, you name it. The bottom line, more … [Read more...] about What’s going on with Donald Trump? Psychologist explains the president’s lies, reversals
