Women’s Difficulties That Melania Trump Feels Very, Very Strongly About

The New Yorker, February 16, 2017

A random selection, quoted verbatim:


Child-Care Costs

Child care is perhaps the most important feminist issue, and right now it is far too expensive.
For example, it costs an estimated five hundred thousand dollars a day for the Secret Service to take my son to and from school.
I am lucky enough to have the taxpayers cover this expense, but this is a cost that most women cannot afford.

 

 

I think that is supposed to be satire. It's not far off, though.

mattwnz: I can't see him lasting much more than 2, if the democrats take power. It all depends on how he behaves. He is also a sitter for something health related to happen, and he doesn't look all that healthy.

 

Sorry don't understand how / why the democrats would take power?

 

 

 

 

The next senate elections in 2018. Whether they would then look at impeachment. Although to be fair the republicans may do it before them, although that would be truly historic. But all of this is totally new ground.

And here is one of Trump's key levers of influence. He has proved he can mobilise large numbers of hard core supporters using the various mechanisms available to him.

There are some senators and house members up for re-election who could be replaced in the same way that Trump won the presidential nomination selection.

Trump might look dumb in front of the media but I assure you someone who destroyed Hillary using all kinds of unorthodox Russian-style gambits have the Senate covered. If he were smart he'd start with planting moles in the CIA, FBI, ... everything the internet and the social media has thrown at him has only made him stronger ... he ain't going anywhere fast

As long as that someone is working for the Don, he's untouchable. Yes, half wants him out, but the other half is completely with/for him.

The US public aren't seeing it as a game of "halves" any more.

Assassination would be a mistake. 
Forgetting morality of doing such a thing, it's counter-productive as the alt:right fascists surrounding Trump would capitalise on such an event (and the "sympathy vote") to strengthen their cause.

 

Better IMO to enjoy watching Trump's drawn-out political suicide.

 

His increasingly intense (and rambling) attacks on the media suggest to me he's preempting imminent release of something particularly damning.

True - the words may have come out of his mouth, but I doubt that the ideas/strategy came out of his head.

 

I never followed Trump with much interest before his political moves.  Perhaps he was once cunning and smart?  He isn't now.

Some media called Enemy of the American people.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/17/business/trump-calls-the-news-media-the-enemy-of-the-people.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news

Trump tweeted
The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!

Yeah, knew he wasn't going to like the press coverage spin on the press conference.

This is what every tyrant in history who ever wanted to overthrow a democratic government has done. First you undermine trust in the opposition and media voices that try to hold you to account. After you have taken away their credibility, you can ban them without anyone protesting much. I don't know if this is what Trump is up to. But so far he seems to be following the playbook pretty closely.
