Trump’s America: More torture sessions for Jeff

Jeff Sessions had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week. At least that’s finally over. But wait! Now, it appears that this week could be even worse. As with little Alexander in one of the greatest children’s books of all time, nothing’s been going right for Donald Trump...

The Foreman Forecast: Covfefes all around!

I’ve watched a lot of Congressional hearings in my life, and most are about as exciting as a dusty painting of the Founding Fathers contemplating a parchment. But I must doff my powdered wig to the Senate Intelligence Committee – because the testimony of fired FBI Director James Comey...

The Foreman Forecast: The president’s Russian winter

Summer descended in earnest this week in D.C., making shirts stick to the backs of sweaty lobbyists and causing hot-headed partisans to practically burst into flames. But at the besieged White House, the Russia probe has things as chilly as the ice palace in “Doctor Zhivago.” With...

The Foreman Forecast: Don’t blame me

It was the media. It was the FBI. It was misogyny, the Democratic National Committee – heck, throw in the “vast right wing conspiracy” if you wish. Hillary Clinton is speaking up a lot lately about losing to Donald Trump last fall, and while she is slamming others as fast as she...

The Foreman Forecast: Lost in the Swamp

If someone asked me to distill the essential message of Donald Trump in the long, wild months leading up to his election it would be: You’re all wrong. Congress. The courts. The bureaucrats. Activists and analysts. The media. Especially the media. You don’t understand the American...

Trump's America: Plugging the leaky ship of Donald

Donald Trump hates leaks, really hates ’em, and I’ll tell you how I know. He keeps saying so on the Twitter, which is the closest thing we have to a window on the leak-hating president's leak-hating soul. He hates leaks almost as much as he hates anonymous sources and fake news....

The Foreman Forecast: Can’t touch this

I didn’t think we’d have to go over this again after kindergarten, but apparently, I was wrong. What are the rules? Play nice. Do your own work. Wait your turn. No sharing secrets with the Russians. And – most importantly – keep your hands to yourself. This last point has...
