"President Trump is flailing like a man who fears he’s about to go under..." | THE POLITICUS

"President Trump is flailing like a man who fears he’s about to go under..."

“...and he hasn’t even been in office a full month.”

That is the beginning of Eugene Robinson’s column for Friday’s Washington Post, which is titled How could things get worse for Trump?

As is usual from the Pulitzer Prize winner, it is well worth the read.

He says that Trump faces two interlocking crises, the first about his campaign’s contact with the Russians, and the second, the

appalling levels of dysfunction in the White House that make self-inflicted wounds the rule rather than the exception.

Even appealing to the base and doing a campaign style rally in Florida will not, according to Robinson, make the problems go away.
