Trump’s naked race card play
Trump has only one card left to play to stay in the White House. That’s his old favorite, the race card. He’ll play it with a vengeance in the run-up to Nov. 3 that might even make the unreconstructed George Wallace blush.

Here’s how Trump beat Mueller
Trump did not tweet, rant, shout or finger point Special Counsel Robert Mueller the instant he delivered his report to Attorney General William Barr. Trump, in fact, said nothing. He didn’t have to.
