It's one thing to fire the guy for the contents of the videos. It's another thing entirely to report on the guy getting fired by deliberately editing together clips to strip them of their context and make the guy out to be as much of a monster as possible in the service of manufacturing outrage for your yellow journalism.

But these days - in America at least - intellectuals trained in the same classical tradition as Winston Churchill are derided as beholden to the white male patriarchy. Hell, even figures previously associated with high minded ideals and liberty like Thomas Jefferson are now considered personas non grata. Meanwhile, the typical modern university does its best to train Alinskyite radicals.

Of course intellectuals are disdained. Thought is dead.

I think we are a long way from a Trump impeachment and conviction. I still can't see the Republicans sacrificing themselves when they control Congress and, at least no.inally the White House.

You're probably right, but given Trump's arrogance, thin skin, and dubious track record on Republican values, I suspect he'll get crossways with Congress long before his term is over.

There is talk among Washington reporters that they actually wonder if Trump is in possession of his faculties.

If it were you or me that would be a forgone conclusion. However, the problem with claiming that Trump is mental is that his behavior is exactly why you'd expect from a spoiled brat billionaire grown old and cranky.
