Analysis: Trump is embarrassing to lots of people

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 16:21:45 GMT

Three new polls in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan -- a trio of states that Donald Trump turned from blue to red and, in so doing, won the White House -- paint a very ugly picture for the President. Majorities in all three states disapprove of how he is doing his job -- and the number of people who strongly disapprove far outweigh those who strongly approve.(image)

'Breitbart News on steroids': Inside Steve Bannon's next steps

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 17:04:24 GMT

Following Steve Bannon's ouster from the White House on Friday, questions have swirled about what President Donald Trump's former chief strategist will do next. His immediate return to Breitbart, the conservative news site he was running prior to joining Trump world, suggested he wasn't planning to go quietly into that good night. In search of understanding Bannon's next steps, I reached out to Josh Green, my friend and the author of "Devils' Bargain," the #1 New York Times bestselling book on Bannon and Trump. Josh is also a national correspondent at Bloomberg Businessweek and a CNN political analyst. Our conversation, conducted via email and lightly edited for flow, is below.(image)

How Trump sold us shamelessness
