Here at LR Net, we’re constantly worrying about the political, social, and economic effects of the Drumpf debacle. So we’re naturally pleased when we see a thoughtful piece that supports our position. Take a look at The steep price of the Trumpian circus by E.J. Dionne Jr. at the Washington Post. He makes the excellent point that Trump could easily be the end of democracy.
From the isn’t that funny file, the Washington Post is also reporting that “A New York state judge ruled Thursday that a high-rise condo building called ‘Trump Place’ may remove that name from its facade, rejecting an argument from President Trump’s company that the building was permanently obligated to keep it.” Seems the management and condo owners felt he was giving the place a bad name. Can’t blame ‘em.
In fact, the New Yorker’s merry prankster and satirist Andy Borowitz has done one of his hysterically funny pieces on the topic. In Mueller Reportedly Considering Appropriate Thank-You Gift for Giuliani, Borowitz envisions Mueller and has staff trying to figure out what they could give a man who has done so much for them. The leading contender is a bottle of single malt whiskey, though champagne and caviar are also in the race.
