Fodder for the next debate and when the counterintelligence investigation post-Mueller...

Red-faced. Shouting. Interrupting. Ignoring. That describes Trump at last night’s debate. Turns out it also describes what he’s like in the Oval Office: Trump doesn’t accept the consensus that the debate was a disaster because, sources said, he was unabashedly himself. “The thing about the debate is people got to...

He was quintessentially Trump, and that always gives the ocher asshat a tingling sensation. So it was no surprise when the redoubtable Gabriel Sherman wrote the...
