Both liberal and Trumpian circles share the same unconscious belief—the belief that Trump possesses supernatural powers that either threaten to or will happily make him unstoppable. @SteveKornacki joins the @Commentary podcast to discuss ▸ #Polling
If you think that U.S.-China tensions are an outgrowth of Trumpian racism, and will disappear if and when Trump exits the stage, you should probably think again. The roots of the conflict are far deeper, and will long outlast Trump.
Just a perfect example of how the alleged goals of US fossil-fuel policy—that an unregulated free-for-all of extraction makes us more independent, boosts our national security, etc—is completely undercut by Trumpian deregulation and anti-climatism.
4/Pro-immigration sentiment has steadily increased while Trump has been in office. This is no coincidence. It's because people have seen the results of Trumpian xenophobia. ZERO gains for our nation, just a lot of social division and high-profile cruelty.
5 questions for Casey Mulligan and Michael Strain on Trumpian populism by me via @AEIdeas
Here's secret video I obtained from Trump's deposition in the Trump University fraud case. Watch what happens when he's asked if a false statement used to sell the course was indeed inaccurate. He says, "It depends on how you're talking about 'accurate.'" How Trumpian.
I agree absolutely with my colleagues Andre Geim and Martin Rees. Beyond the immense practical difficulties, Brexit is seen as a Trumpian, nativist project by those who Johnson pretends to value. Scientists will be seeking visas to leave, not to come here.
This ‘was it the sister was it the parents?’ bullshit is a classic little Trumpian distraction tactic. He was infected and put others at risk(unlike Ferguson and Calderwood) It is as clear and dangerous a breach of lockdown rules as you could imagine and worse than those two. 1/3
It’s not the lying per se that’s Trumpian. Johnson is clearly not deranged. But the way his abject dishonesty is ignored, excused & even denied by politicians & journalists - some deliberately, some still blinded by ‘balance’ - is every bit as disgusting as anything in America.
I never thought the term Orwellian would have a suitable synonym. I was wrong. Trumpian. Although that word has multiple definitions. (See also corruption, divisiveness, ...)
