Trump Stared At Walls, Wandered Out Of Room While Ryan Explained Health Care

In excerpts from former communications staffer Cliff Sims’ new White House exposé, President Donald Trump is at times irate, paranoid and petty. And as seen in one episode with former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), he could be rudely disinterested. According to passages obtained by the Washington Post, Ryan at one point was standing in the Oval Office to explain the Republican healthcare plan to Trump. While Ryan was talking, Trump wandered around, staring out windows and at walls and ...

What Happens When MLK Is A National Icon (But Your Politics Don’t Really Agree)

That Mike Pence and other standard-bearers within this movement can regularly lean on King’s legacy is a consequence of how the civil-rights leader has been canonized. When President Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law, in 1983—reversing his own objections to the holiday, and earlier ones to King himself—he signaled that America had accepted King in its pantheon of similarly revered leaders, people such as George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. But in order to do so, King’s legacy had to...
