CNN before love-making is not his idea of a turn-on. But she can hardly turn it off—engrossed as she is in the latest unnerving gyrations of Washington.Story Continued Below Who else to blame but Donald Trump? A president who excites hot feelings in many quarters has cooled them considerably in the bedroom of a Philadelphia couple, who sought counseling in part because the agitated state of American politics was causing strain in their marriage. The couple’s story was relayed to POLITICO by their therapist on condition of anonymity. But their travails, according to national surveys and interviews with mental health professionals, are not as anomalous as one might suppose. Even when symptoms are not sexual in nature, there is abundant evidence that Trump and his daily uproars are galloping into the inner life of millions of Americans. During normal times, therapists say, their sessions deal with familiar themes: relationships, self-esteem, everyday coping. Current events … [Read more...] about Trump May Not Be Crazy, But the Rest of Us Are Getting There Fast
What psychics say about trump
Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera insisted that President Donald Trump should be more “compassionate” in his approach to immigration reform. He argued that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency must be “reformulated” and shouldn’t target unauthorised immigrants who don’t have criminal records. But Rivera said he has “no problem” with a border wall, despite his belief that Americans’ support for a wall is motivated by a xenophobic fear of demographic change. Longtime Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera walked a tight rope Friday morning on “Fox and Friends” – appearing to support President Donald Trump’s border wall despite Rivera’s belief that the right’s approach to immigration lacks “humanity” and is motivated by xenophobia. The conversation on Trump’s favourite morning show turned slightly contentious when Rivera argued that the Immigration and Customs … [Read more...] about Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera says Americans need a border wall to calm fears of demographic change

Jonathan Chait has written a long piece on President Donald Trump’s myriad ties to Russia. The reaction is about what you’d expect: Trump’s most feverish critics see it as the indictment of a Manchurian Candidate who is now The Red President. Trump’s defenders have dismissed the piece (and Chait) as just another example of how the left can descend into the conspiracy theory fever swamps as quickly as anyone else. Chait’s piece, however, deserves a fairer reading than it’s getting. Whatever else it may be, it is fundamentally a damning tally of the degree to which the Russian state has woven itself into the life of the current commander in chief. Story Continued Below I should note here that I do not write from any unique knowledge of the Trump case beyond what is available in the historical record. Rather, I am a specialist in Russian affairs with experience extending back to the Cold War, and neither Chait’s narrative nor his conclusions … [Read more...] about What Jonathan Chait Gets Right About Trump and Russia
It has been almost five years since Amazon founder and CEO Jeffrey P. Bezos closed his purchase of the Washington Post for $250 million, and still we don’t know for certain why he bought it. President Donald Trump has been no help getting to the bottom of it, recently polluting the topic with his assertion—backed with zero evidence—that Bezos acquired the paper to “lobby” for Amazon. Bezos himself has taken a few shots at explaining his motivation. Two years ago, when Post Executive Editor Martin Baron pitched the question directly at the world’s wealthiest man in a public conversation, Bezos swung the civic-responsibility bat, connecting cleanly. Citing what would later become the paper’s dopey motto, “democracy dies in darkness,” Bezos continued, “Certain institutions have a very important role in making sure there is light, and I think the Washington Post has a seat, an important seat to do that, because we happen to be … [Read more...] about What Does Jeff Bezos Want?
