Trump allies line up to declare president mentally sound

If the secret tape of a president threatening a private citizen with jail were leaked, it would be a scandal. While the public imagination leaves room for "the unkempt male genius; the Albert Einstein variety", she added, "there is still an implicit cultural expectation that women need to be put together in a fashionable/pretty way". I don't give credit to anything in this book. By midday, chief of staff John Kelly hadn't yet seen or heard of them, and offered only a clipped "OK" when read them by reporters.

Thinking about the power of books to shape our culture should also remind us about the dangers of running our book economy through Amazon.

Bannon bragged in 2016 that his site was "the platform for the alt-right", the loose nationalist movement coined by white supremacist Richard Spencer whose members frequently espoused racist and anti-Semitic sentiments. His mannerisms, voice and tone are so specific that attempts at mimicry like Alec Baldwin's on Saturday Night Live fall flat.

With raves coming in for her Oscar-worthy performance in "I Tonya", Robbie's transition from sexy action star to serious actor is complete.

He is also quoted in the book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", by Michael Wolff as calling Trump's son "treasonous" and "unpatriotic" for a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr, ex-campaign chair Paul Manafort, his son-in-law Jared Kushner and Kremlin-linked Russians.

"I tried to not have anyone notice me, or not notice me above the level that they noticed the furniture, so my goal was to keep going until somebody said 'go away, '" he said.

In the latter case, as the US National Employment Law Project has pointed out, 18 states and nine cities raised their statutory minimum wage as of January 1, which should, according to the US' Economic Policy Institute, provide "over US$5 billion in additional wages to 4.5 million workers across" the United States.

But he acknowledged his shift from being a critic of Trump to being a golf partner and ally: "I've enjoyed his company". "I am the only person to date to conduct a global effort to preach the message of Trump and Trumpism; and remain ready to stand in the breech for this president's efforts to make America great again".

This exam does not typically involve having the president undergo a mental health evaluation, as some Democrats have urged. "I have no reason to question his mental fitness".

The first key is his phony populism, with an emphasis on both words.

Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker who speaks with Trump regularly, downplayed claims last week that Trump has become prone to repeating himself.

Michael Wolff appeared Monday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to discuss "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House". "You can't say Steve's not a smart guy, you can't say that Steve's not a good writer, you can't say that after Andrew Breitbart's death he didn't help raise the profile of Breitbart -- not a super profitable place, but certainly had a very high profile in the last election".

In his statement Sunday, first obtained by Axios, Bannon said those comments were actually about Manafort, not Trump Jr. "He is becoming very unstable very quickly. It's that important", she said. When there are conflicting accounts of an event, journalists tend to be explicit about that in their reportage. "My clients do not intend to cease publication, no such retraction will occur, and no apology is warranted".

But it's not working as well as it used to. That led to a key Breitbart funder saying she would no longer fund Bannon projects. Reporting on a late December Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, the Journal noted: "The Republican tax-cut bill has grown more unpopular in the two months it has taken to usher it through Congress, and few people believe it will provide relief for middle-class families ..."
