Trump's Dog Whistle

The only thing nearly as outrageous as Donald Trump's thinly veiled calls for the assassination of Hillary Clinton is the deafening silence of Republican leaders.

They seem oblivious to Trump's dog whistles about killing the Democratic nominee for president.

Richard Milhous Trump

Donald Trump says he has a plan to defeat ISIS, but he is keeping it secret to be unpredictable and avoid tipping off the enemy.

If that sounds familiar, it may be because it sounds a lot like Richard Nixon's secret plan to end the war in Vietnam.

Trump repeated it again following this weekend's terrorist incidents in New York and New Jersey.  When asked by a sycophantic Fox News interviewer what he would do, he said, "We're going to have to do something extremely tough over there."

Like what? Steve Doocy asked.

CNN Chooses Flackery Over Journalism

Remember when CNN used to be a real news channel?  No more.  Not since it hired Corey Lewandowski and other campaign flacks to be paid "analysts." 

Donald Trump reportedly told his campaign manager "You're  fired" and made him an offer he couldn't refuse.  Just sign a nondisclosure agreement, don't discuss anything about the campaign or the candidate and in return you'll get a generous but unspecified severance. And, it turned out, more.

The Wall Trump Wants To Tear Down

Donald Trump is going to make America Christian and to do that he wants to tear down one of this pillars that has made this nation the Golden Medina for Jews from all over the world.

"The Christians are being treated horribly because we have nobody to represent the Christians," he told an evangelical gathering last week in Washington.  "I will be the greatest representative of the Christians."

McCain Latest To Dump Trump

No sooner did John McCain win his primary last Tuesday than he wrote off Donald Trump for president.  His pitch to voters is send him back to Washington for a sixth term so he can block President Hillary Clinton's plans.

Four Questions On Deciding To Passover Trump

Why is this candidate different from all other Republican candidates?

1. Why is he so appealing to neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klansmen and white supremacists when his opponent is not?

2. Why have so many leading Republicans refused to endorse him, un-endorsed him, said they won't vote for him or have said they'll vote for Hillary Clinton?

3. Why is he so full of contempt for so many people, especially immigrants, minorities, the disabled and women?

How To Save Israel

Israel is in turmoil and there is only one solution, said former Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) upon returning from her most recent visit to the Holy Land. Jesus is "coming soon" and the Jews must convert to Christianity while there is still time.

Barbra Streisand Wants To Meet Me

I've been a big fan of Barbra Streisand for more than 50 years, since I was in college, and I was thrilled to learn she wants to meet me.

"Dear Douglas, I'm spending an evening campaigning with Hillary in New York City next week, and I would love to meet you there," she wrote to me.  "I want you to be right up front when I sing."

I was so excited I began worrying about what I'd wear for such an auspicious occasion.  I wonder if my tux still fits.

Trump's Jewish Mini-Me

At a time when most Congressional Republicans are trying to distance themselves from Donald Trump, one is behaving like a clone of his party's presidential candidate, complete with mind-numbing outrageous charges and incendiary rhetoric.

Rep. Lee Zeldin, the lone Jewish Republican in this Congress, has called Barack Obama a "racist," sounded like a Trump birther questioning the president's heritage, accused him of having "no idea what he is doing" and implying he committed treason.

Who Will Bibi Endorse?

There has been speculation that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans to endorse Donald Trump or at least would like to see him become the next president.

That's what former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a close Trump advisor, reported after meeting with the prime minister and other top officials on his recent trip to Israel.
