Trump's America: Like sleepaway camp, only you don’t know where your parents are

What a fine way to celebrate Father’s Day! Rip a few hundred immigrant families apart! The heat is rising on the Trump administration’s policy of separating parents from their children at the border, and not just because of the large, canvas tents in the 100-degree South Texas sun....

The Foreman Forecast: Party Crasher

Forget all the old litmus tests for Republicans that once determined the merit of candidates; the questions about abortion rights, taxes, and ideology. These days only one question really matters: Are you for or against Donald Trump?   And some of the primary contests leading up to this fall...

Trump's America: To Be Diplomatic About It, That Stunk!

Too bad international diplomacy isn’t as simple as signing a presidential pardon. If that were true, Donald Trump could be hailed in Singapore today as the 21st century’s Dag Hammarskjöld. The Art of the Dealmight even be taken off the fiction shelf. In signing pardons, Trump has...

The Foreman Forecast: The President's Perilous Defense

Think of them as political landmines; all those lies, misleading statements, and threats President Trump is spreading around the White House in response to the Russia probe. Sure, they can keep his enemies confused, jumpy, and afraid, but they can also represent a significant peril to the person...

I Beg My Pardon, Mr. Mueller

Pardon me! What used to be a perfectly polite expression could soon be a full-blown constitutional crisis, thanks to the potential prosecution known officially as the United States of America vs. Donald John Trump. That became painfully plain over the weekend. In a confidential, 20-page letter...

The Foreman Forecast: Take This Job and …

I've had some bad jobs. I’ve worked on farms where the hours were long, the days hot, and the chores dirty. I’ve stocked shelves and sold toys during the holidays, getting by on three hours of sleep a night to pay for college. I’ve pulled the overnight shift at a convenience...

Trump's America: Just Shut Up and Salute!

You don’t high-five the latest school shooting, and you don’t go around wishing people happy Memorial Day. Doesn’t everyone know that by now? Um, not everyone. There was Donald Trump, tweeting bright and early, as the rest of the nation was commemorating the ongoing tragedy of...

Scientific study finds that men prefer blondes

Researchers, who conducted the largest-ever genetic study into hair color have revealed that women are twice as likely as men to have naturally fair hair. According to Prof Tim Spector of King’s College London, co-author of the paper published in the Nature Genetics journal, it happens...

Trump’s America: Shutting the door on gun sanity

Another ten dead by gunfire, and here we go again. This time, the slaughter was outside Houston at Santa Fe High School. And Dan Patrick, the pro-gun lieutenant governor of Texas, had another imbecilic excuse for refusing to do anything about America’s sickness with guns. Guns weren’t...

The Foreman Forecast: Just getting started

As the Russia investigation hit its first anniversary this week, President Trump was raging away — tweeting, “Congratulations America, we are now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History … still No Collusion and No Obstruction.” Now, it seems...

The Foreman Forecast: A leak in the house

Traitors. Cowards. Leakers. All three words meant the same thing this week to President Trump as he let fly with a scorching tweet, promising to hunt down anyone in the White House releasing unauthorized information. At the same time, he railed about reporters saying this problem he has...

Trump’s America: So funny America forgot to laugh

Wanna hear a joke about an American hero dying of brain cancer? I didn’t think so. No decent person would. And it would take an even bigger creep to tell a joke like that and, once confronted by the dying man’s distraught family, to refuse to utter a public apology. Welcome to...

The Foreman Forecast: Iran, you ran, we ran

When it comes to changing jobs, homes, or social circles, I have a rule: Don’t just run away from something bad — run toward something better. A more promising profession. A more welcoming domicile. Friendlier friends. Sure, it’s fun in a fit of pique to storm off, but that...

The Foreman Forecast: Sex, the AG and the fall

Team Trump went into full celebration mode this week at the resignation of the attorney general of New York. Don Jr. took to Twitter, gleefully ridiculing the sudden demise of Eric Schneiderman’s career. Kellyanne Conway fired out a terse, “Gotcha.” I’ll assume Donald Trump...

Why is everyone worked up over Heinz's new product, Mayochup?

Remember back when Smucker’s released their peanut butter and jelly swirled together in one jar? Dubbed Smucker’s Goober, a goober is exactly what you’d feel like once you dipped your knife in and realized your first use turned the whole thing into a swamp. Well another company is...

Trump’s America: Rudy cleans up the cleanup

Why hide? Whatever else might be said of Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor does not suffer from excessive timidity. And there he was again on Sunday, sitting in the glare of television lights, publicly counterpunching on behalf of his latest client, the president of the United States....

The Foreman Forecast: The ‘best’ info?

Like the final player on the losing side of a dodgeball game, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is doing some pretty fancy ducking and diving. Facing a daily barrage of questions from reporters — much of it keyed to President Trump’s shifting versions of the facts — she...

Chicago deep dish vs. the New York slice: Which pizza is better?

As a New Yorker, I treat our Pizza like it has rejuvenating powers that can’t be reproduced anywhere else. But even NYC purists have to admit that this kind of admiration for the New York slice has always been weirdly just “understood” rather than backed up. Many faithful to the...

Trump’s America: WWPD? Fire the House chaplain for a prayer

Holy Mary, Mother of God! What on Earth is Paul Ryan trying to prove? That a Catholic priest can’t minister to people with families? That God-fearing politicians shouldn’t look out for the poor? The outgoing Speaker sure has raised some dicey questions by abruptly dismissing the...

Trump’s America: Let the spouses speak, I say

I have a wife. She has opinions. And sometimes — this part may surprise you — her opinions differ from mine. This can be frustrating for someone like me who enjoys being right all the time. But really, what am I supposed to do? I much prefer the company of people who possess their own...
