Our word of the day is “leverage”

A few days ago, I suggested on this site that Donald Trump, by pardoning Joe Arpaio, was signaling that he wouldn’t leave office willingly, like Nixon, but instead intended to fight, even if it meant fracturing the GOP, and perhaps the entire country, beyond repair.

In Europe, surrounded by world leaders that detest him, Trump questions the integrity of our intelligence community, rants about “fake news,” and essentially blames Obama for not doing more to stop him and Putin
