There are only three ways to explain Andrew’s friendship with Epstein: The first is that he knowingly associated with a convicted sex offender, because he did not regard that as a disqualification. The second is that he was too stupid, or too incurious, to comprehend the evil going on around him. The third is that he was a willing participant in the rape and sexual abuse of underage girls.

It’s no surprise that Donald Trump is a polarizing figure. Unlike almost every other US President that tried to unify the nation, Trump sees his future is tied to further dividing the nation, and giving his supporters more reasons to love him and hate the opposition. 

Going through an impeachment hearing, which is bound to fail in the Republican controlled Senate anyway, will give Trump one more big bullhorn to shout his message of hate and division, and may, in fact, help assure his re-election. 

Hope is never a willful ignorance to the hardships and cruelties that so many suffer or the enormous challenges that we face in mounting progress in this imperfect world…. It’s a belief in goodness and human ingenuity and, maybe most of all, our ability to connect with each other and see each other in ourselves, and that if we summon our best selves, then maybe we can inspire others to do the same.

Trump sounded like a jilted lover when he tweeted: “I’ve done so much for you, and then this… We won’t forget, and neither will your customers or your now very HAPPY competitors!”

It’s not totally clear what the president meant when he said he’s done “so much for” Harley-Davidson.

In his Fox News interview Sunday, Trump dismissed the idea that Harley’s decision had something to do with his tariffs.

There is little doubt that the Trump Administration will nominate — and force through — another extremely conservative justice like Neil Gorsuch. And that’s not just bad news for the LGBTQ community. It will most likely set back women’s rights, voting rights, and every marginalized group in this nation who relies upon the Supreme Court to live up to those four words etched into the building’s western pediment: “Equal Justice Under Law.”
