Last night, voters signed a referendum against Donald Trump and his regressive and divisive policies. His unpopularity and the resistance from activists helped fuel Democratic victories across the nation. The victories had both breathe and depth from school boards and city councils to Governor’s mansions.

The most watched election was in Virginia where Democrat Ralph Northam far exceeded late polling to win a resounding victory for Governor. Democrats swept the other statewide offices in the state including … Read more »

It’s a natural quality for women to nurture, and we should hold on to that generosity of spirit.

At the Women in Film luncheon in 1992, I spoke about the skewed perception of women in relation to men. I shared my thoughts on how language gave us an insight into the way women were viewed in a male-dominated society:

A man is commanding—a woman is demanding.

It is hard to know where his rampant narcissism ends and serious mental problems ensue. He lies prodigiously and for no reason except he obviously has an unclear vision of what the truth is.

It’s kindness and empathy that will make America greater, Mr. Trump.

I’ve said this before, but I’m saying this again. Trump is a walking, talking illustration of what psychologists call “the disowned self,” a person who refuses to recognize his own flaws and instead projects them onto others. He accused Hillary Clinton of being a liar and said she was “Putin’s puppet,” when that glove seems to fit him. Before he was president, … Read more »

Whenever the doorbell rang, the legendary Dorothy Parker reportedly said, “What fresh hell is this?” I feel the same way every day under President Trump. His speech to Congress on his 40th day as president was no different.

It was striking to see how this president has spent his first 40 days in office versus those of President Obama. Nancy Pelosi sums it up:

There have been giants who served as president: George Washington helped found the country; Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves; Teddy Roosevelt established the national parks; Franklin Roosevelt pulled us out of The Great Depression and defeated fascism; Lyndon Johnson established Medicare; Bill Clinton gave the nation a budget surplus; and Barack Obama provided access to health insurance for all Americans.

President-elect Donald Trump won the hearts of Rust Belt working-class whites by giving voice to their anger and giving them a comforting but utterly false narrative to explain their plight. He blamed “globalism” or “foreigners” or China or stupid Washington insiders or bungled trade deals for the hollowing-out of the heartland and for their fall from the comfortable middle class to the bitter life of working-class hourly laborers.

Since Gallup began asking Americans the people they admired the most, there’s been a consistent pattern: Whoever was president or president-elect was almost always the man the country admired the most. The most admired woman? Usually someone who had been married to a president.

Only five times has the most admired man in the country not been a president — past, current or elected. And in 2016, the trend continued, with President … Read more »

When a project is nothing more than a germ of an idea in search of a blank piece of paper to land on, it’s fraught with possibilities. Only in hindsight can one evaluate whether the results were worth the effort.
