It's 3 a.m. and Donald Trump can't sleep.
Restless, he tosses back and forth between Egyptian cotton sheets. The sweat builds on his forehead. His teeth grind. A tinpot dictator in some far-flung land has made a joke about his hands.
The rage bui ...

Let us now praise Donald Trump -- on one count, anyway: He realizes he faces an ethics problem. Last week, when the president-elect talked to the New York Times, he was widely quoted as saying that conflict of interest laws don't apply to the preside ...

It's the season of Thanksgiving, and I know this because my Facebook feed is filled with a daily dose of "What I'm Thankful for."

Years ago, I was looking at a tabloid front page while waiting in a checkout line in a supermarket and was struck by a headline: "Devil Escapes From Hell."

The internet justifiably lost its collective mind this week with the news that President-elect Donald Trump had appointed Stephen K. Bannon, a leading voice of white nationalism, to a senior White House position, seemingly dashing hopes that the popu ...

No matter whom we supported for president, at least we were spared the sight of Donald Trump marching down Fifth Avenue, chanting and waving a scrawled #NotMyPresident cardboard sign.

Accept this loss.
Respect the system we have, because it worked the way it was supposed to and it gave America a new president -- Donald Trump.
If you're unhappy with that outcome, as I and many millions of Americans are, go ahead and be unhappy. Or ...

As I've said:
He's a narcissist.
He's running the worst presidential campaign I've seen in my lifetime.
But Donald Trump is not a criminal.
