There’s a lot the president is willing to give up, and it’s more than just one or two seasons of Celebrity Apprentice. He’s given up on the poor and middle class. He’s given up our standing in the world. He’s given up trying to find fresh adjectives for “good” and “bad.” He’s long ago given up on nuance, civility, common sense and humility.

When diplomacy matters, you know that he’ll show up, and act like a child who refuses to grow up. He’ll lambaste The Times, and while he’s berating it, he’ll diss the fake news even as he’s creating it.
His big mouth is something I wish we could sew up. It might cost us plenty, but I’d put the dough up, ‘though his tax plan might make the economy blow up.
Obama’s fine legacy he’s sworn to dismantle, although to that man he can’t hold a candle. And if he runs out of people to pillory, he’s likely to turn his attention to Hillary.
As much as he dishes out hate and malaise, he can’t get enough of the vacuous praise. He hires exclusively people who suck up, and then fires them when they—what’s the word–screw up.
And so the strange man in the orange pompadour will dish out embarrassment, and then dish out more. Yet if we impeached him, a year or two hence–we might have to do it again with Mike Pence.
