I’ve seen roller coaster accidents that were easier to follow—and less unnerving—than that gory mess Trump counsel Bruce Castor presented earlier today. To say it was shambolic and meandering is to insult anyone who’s currently lost in a mall parking lot. I was half expecting a big novelty hook to...

Like Trump’s toughness, pretending you’re using the Defense Production Act of 1950 and hoping for corporate volunteerism is not the same thing especially if you claim you’re in “wartime”.
