What Trump says vs. what Trump means

Most presidents try to avoid controversy by painstakingly parsing their words like a fifth grader conserving an allowance at the county fair. Reluctant to reflect even the hint of a whisper of a shadow of a rumpus. But Donald Trump is not most presidents. He is as singular as a smokestack in a cotton field.

It was a fine day for protesting at Lafayette Square in Washington, D.C., where folks were enjoying their right to free speech in a productive and peaceable manner. Lafayette Square sits directly across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House. The park was packed with a variety of people the Saturday morning I visited nearly a decade ago. A large group of Hispanic protesters was demanding "living wages," acceptance of bilingual education and amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Ivanka, Jared luring Donald into immigration swamp

When, right out of the starting block, President Donald Trump reneged on a key campaign vow, he in-advertently laid the foundation for a swamp of his own making just months later. On the campaign trail, President Trump repeatedly promised to end "on day one" deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA).

Beat the press: Trump’s survival strategy

Donald Trump's mounting assaults on the free and independent press are enough to make me wax nostalgic for Spiro Agnew. When Richard Nixon's vice president denounced members of the Fourth Estate as "nattering nabobs of negativism," at least there was a modicum of wit.

Hateful haters hating hate

Someone please tell the radical left to stop getting their panties in a bundle and quit calling our president a Nazi. Donald Trump proved himself a great friend of freedom when he promoted equivalency between the organized hate movement and people disgusted by them. Anyone who hates haters is equally responsible for hateful hating. That is obvious.
