November 17: Trump’s Win Wasn’t Fair or Democratic — But It Was ‘Legitimate’

In an interview with Mother Jones’s voting-rights champion Ari Berman, Hillary Clinton questions the “legitimacy” of Donald Trump election and calls for an “independent commission” to “get to the bottom of what happened.” She cites both Russian interference in the election and GOP voter-suppression efforts in key states as having quite likely cost her the election.

Perhaps she is right, and possibly an independent inquiry into the conduct of the campaigns and the election itself is worth doing, though it’s hard to imagine how such a commission would be set up and its membership determined.

October 6: Exposed as a Phony Businessman, Trump’s Winning as President

His insusceptibility to being shamed—even when he should be ashamed—might be his superpower.

The man a lot of Americans voted for because of the fraudulent image he’d offered of himself as a successful businessman just strung together one of the most impressive weeks in political memory.   

The New York Times
led off the week by exposing Trump’s dependence on his old man’s fortune and concluded it with Peter Baker listing off Trump’s big wins—which included the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the sealing of “an ambitious and elusive new trade agreement with Canada and Mexico,” and the lowest unemployment rate since 1969.

October 7: President Donald Trump's winning streak

Donald Trump may have never had a better time being President.

Only a re-election party on the night of November 3, 2020, could possibly offer the same vindication for America's most unconventional commander in chief as the 36 hours in which two foundational strands of his political career are combining in a sudden burst of history.

Trump became an undeniably consequential President when Senate voted Saturday to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, consecrating the conservative majority that has long been the impossible dream of the GOP.

“In my experience covering White Houses, from Reagan to George W. Bush, we’ve never had that kind of access from a president before,” said Richard Benedetto, a retired White House correspondent who teaches at American University. “He doesn’t get credit for being so accessible. He answers questions all over the place.”

February 15: Fox News host Shep Smith is calling Donald Trump’s decision to sign a government spending bill what he really believes it is — a “loss” for the president.

Smith explained on Thursday the positive spin that some Trump supporters were trying to put on the agreement, and Trump’s reported plan to declare a national emergency to pay for his U.S.-Mexico border wall.

“Somehow you’re supposed to push that together and roll it and spin it and churn it out and twist it and turn it into something that’s vaguely resembling a win,” he explained.

But, he continued, it “didn’t matter if you put it on that machine down there on the Jersey Shore and pulled it like taffy and twisted it and packaged it and put a bow on it and dipped it in chocolate. It’s not a win.”

“If it walks like a loss and quacks like a loss, you know, it’s just a loss,” Smith added.
