Caroline Heldman: What may have been missed in the urine hubbub is the revelation that the FBI was investigating whether the Trump camp was in direct contact with the Russian government in order to throw the election.
Berry Craig: Trump, who has spent months fawning over Putin, had done nothing to ally suspicions from Democrats, and even a few Republicans, that Putin indeed helped him win on November 8.
Lance Simmens: Through his 70 years on this Earth has Trump not at least considered the idea of a catastrophic misuse of such tremendous destructive power and how it would render all prospects of making money obsolete.
John Peeler: Trump appears to believe that a conflict between his private interests and the public interest is impossible, that the two are identical. As Louis XIV said, “L’etat, c’est moi.”
Walter Moss: What is especially appealing about Sanders’ phrasing is his clear recognition that on some issues there can be no compromise, and global warming is one of them.
Anne Marie Codur: It is now plainly and painfully obvious that the broken monstrous soul of Lord Voldemort has incarnated itself in an orange looking pathetic wizard named Trump
Paul Haeder: I treat the throw-aways – out of prison, off the streets, barely, in recovery, all those fines-levies-garnishments-fees-invoices like a billion leaches on their souls.
Ed Rampell: Among those things the GOP nominee presumably doesn’t want voters informed about is the sound and fury that surrounded Trump International Hotel and Tower at Waikiki Beach Walk
Berry Craig: Trump dissed Hillary as “such a nasty woman.” He glowered. He grimaced. He smirked. He bent down and intoned “wrong!” into the mike and did his best Alec Baldwin impersonation.
Wiggins’ disdain for Trump is also personal. The Gerdau Ameristeel plant where he’s worked for 33 years is slated to close next month, leaving more than 100 union members jobless.
The Alarmist: The cumulative effect of clicking on the name Trump for over a year has created a body politic with a conditioned response, one that is beginning to register in the polls masquerading as a political opinion.
William J. Astore: What you got was two self-absorbed candidates, one wonkish, the other one clearly a wanker, both of them posing as warriors as long as someone else’s kids are doing the fighting.
Enrique Buelna: Somewhere in Trump’s mind, he views Latinos as the interlopers, the invaders that got into the party without an invitation.
