Beyond irresponsible: Republicans must put Americans and reality ahead of fealty to Trump
The election is over. Our nation turned out to vote in record numbers, and the results are clear. This was a free and fair election of which we can be proud. More than 72 million votes were cast for Donald Trump and more than 77 million for Joe Biden. Biden has clearly achieved the 270-vote threshold in the Electoral College, and he is the president-elect. President Trump has refused to publicly accept the election results and has his campaig ...

What if Trumps Tries to Pardon Himself?
In the aftermath of his electoral defeat, we are confronted with the possibility President Donald Trump might pardon himself. No other president, not even Richard Nixon, has dared to do so. But Trump may want to extricate himself from the web of criminal accusations surrounding him. A self-pardon would be an assault on the rule of law and the principle that no person, including the president, is above the law. The public outcry would be enormous. ...

3 scholars say Trump isn't staging a coup, but he still poses a threat to democracy
It’s been a week since President-elect Joe Biden’s supporters danced in the streets of cities across the US after every major news organization called the race in his favor. But their sense of relief at President Donald Trump’s loss has been replaced with uncertainty as Trump tries to sow public distrust in the result and overturn it, testing the limits of America’s democratic norms and institutions.

What to do when your president has a temper tantrum
There are several reasons presidents cry. Anyone who has ever had one and been up half the night with it – or all the night with it, night after night – can tell you this. Sometimes presidents cry because they’re tired, sometimes they cry because they need their nappy changed, sometimes they cry because they don’t want you to leave them, sometimes they cry because they have a gnawing pain in their tummy, and sometimes they cry because they’re jus ...

A Child Psychiatrist's Perspective on Trump's Behavior
Why would any parent bring their kid to a child psychiatrist? Well, I’m a child psychiatrist and the most common reason parents bring their kids to see me in my clinical practice is because they are worried about certain behaviors and want help and advice in evaluating their child. They want professional advice about the severity of problems and necessity for treatment. They want to know what’s normal and what’s off the chart. Problemati ...

What Europe fears most about the US election
(CNN) Europe, but particularly France and Germany -- the two motor nations of the continent -- are holding their collective breath for the outcome of Tuesday's American presidential election. They recognize that the future of the trans-Atlantic relationship, the very nature of the Atlantic alliance, which has preserved the peace in Europe for three-quarters of a century, hangs in the balance. However, there is a dawning recognition in both nat ...

Giuliani wrecks Trump campaign's well-laid legal plans
President Donald Trump’s senior campaign aides were gathered in their headquarters Saturday morning when word emerged that Rudy Giuliani would be holding a news conference in the parking lot of a Philadelphia landscaping business. They knew that meant trouble. Senior campaign aides scurried to urge organizers to kill the event, infamously staged at the wrong “Four Seasons” — a landscaping business adjacent to an adult bookstore and a cremat ...

The end of American democracy as we know it - if Donald Trump Wins Election
The legal barrage by President Donald Trump’s campaign against election results in battleground states is highly unlikely to succeed. But it still has the potential to test American democracy as Trump tries to cling to power despite losing the election. Lawsuits filed in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Arizona — all states that voted for Democratic candidate Joe Biden — ask judges to prevent those states from certifying their results. That has rai ...

Trump, for once, listened when aides told him to lay low
America finally got something it essentially hasn’t had since 2015 — a week without Donald Trump’s voice. No rally. No sparring with reporters. No unwieldy Fox News interviews. No unscripted moments with world leaders. Yes, there was his always-active Twitter feed. And there was even one speech late Friday about the progress of a coronavirus vaccine, announced on two-hours’ notice. But even then, the president mostly read from a script befo ...

In a statement to NBC News, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said it will not interface with the Biden transition until the General Services Administration decides it's clear who won, a process known as ...

Trump officials mocked Democrats in 2016 as 'sore losers' for not accepting election results
(CNN)Top Donald Trump campaign and White House officials continue to baselessly assert there was widespread election fraud in the 2020 election and refuse to acknowledge President-elect Joe Biden's victory, but four years ago, those close to Trump mocked Democrats who didn't accept his victory as "sore losers." In 2016, Trump's allies routinely attacked recount efforts that they said were "based on no evidence" and were designed to "delegitimi ...
