Gene Lyons: The swaggering blond supervillain of the GOP
Back in 1957, when Donald Trump and I were both in middle school, I used to have this running argument with my grandfather, Bill Connors. A retired railroad worker and a drinking man, Pop lived in Elizabethport, N.J., a couple of blocks from where the tracks running down Broadway...

Neal Gabler: Trump is a superhero, but not in a good way
Hovering above all the brouhaha about Donald Trump’s bizarre presidential candidacy floats one critical question: Are we an electorate or are we an audience? Trump has bet on the latter, while his competitors, even one like Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who has positions close to...

Michael Reagan: Dumb as Trump
Trump can’t help being Trump. He says outrageous or dumb things about immigrants or his fellow Republican primary candidates five times a day. But no one — not even the liberals of the mainstream media — really takes Donald Trump or what he spews seriously. No one thinks...

Donald Kaul: Creeping out of the Foxhole
At long last Republican presidential hopefuls crept out of their foxholes, where they’d been cowering and maintaining radio silence, to attack Donald Trump. With one or two exceptions, the field went AWOL as Trump trashed immigrants, calling them drug runners and rapists. But as...

Tina Dupuy: Donald Trump: Rising from the GOP’s ashes
There’s no shortage of publicity maestro, name-emblazer Donald Trump think pieces on the Internet these days. Most will attribute his straight talk to his more-than-likely-fleeting frontrunner status. Others point to some anger or racism the Trump Brand Name has tapped into. The...

Rick Jensen: Why the media loves Trump
Donald Trump is the politically unhinged train wreck equivalent of the Kardashians. National news media executives understand the clickbait appeal of big booties and big mouths swinging around in public. They also enjoy the fact that Trump has chosen to identify as a Republican. Sure,...

Stanley Crouch: Trumping the flag issue
There is a sticky temptation to move away from what can be perhaps too much a part of a sold submission to the lowest common denominator in any of the many ethnic versions of supreme definition or well-proven exploitation. One of the most common forms of protection is thought to be...

Jason Stanford: The All Caps Vote
Despite his penchant for counter-factual pronouncements, Ted Cruz is clever, educated, and aggressively intellectual. But he’s not stupid, so when he defends Donald Trump for calling Mexican immigrants rapists, you know he’s up to something. Right now, Trump is the frontrunner...

Michael Reagan: Trump is a fake conservative
Donald Trump has jumped to the top of the national polls for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination. It’s an embarrassing moment for the GOP, the country and the planet. But everyone knows America’s richest celebrity businessman will never become the Republican candidate,...

Michael Reagan: Trump towers in ‘first debate’
FYI, my fellow Americans. Donald Trump, a political amateur, has won the first Republican presidential debate of the 2016 primary. It wasn’t a formal scheduled TV debate. That political circus doesn’t debut on Fox News until next month. The debate Trump won was the one dealing...

Poor Jeb. He’s Donald Trump’s first Republican victim, but he won’t be his last. On Monday Bush officially declared he was a Republican candidate for president, something everyone knew was coming. Jeb gave a serious, by-the-book announcement speech, explaining his many qualifications,...

Well, the joke’s on us. Remember during the recent “Saturday Night Live” anniversary special when Sarah Palin conducted a faux Q&A with Jerry Seinfeld? It went like this: Palin: “How much do you think (producer) Lorne Michaels would pay me if I were to run in 2016?”...
