Douglas Brinkley quotes

Once again the big three are Lincoln, Washington and FDR - as it should be. That Obama came in at number 12 his first time out is quite impressive.feedback

There has never been a kind of holistic jihad against the news media like Trump is executing. Trump is determined to beat and bloody the press whenever he finds himself in a hole, and that's unique. He's trying to show that he's King Kong and the press are little gnats. That has box office appeal to a certain segment of the population.feedback

It was bizarre theater. He turned a presidential press conference into a reality TV show in which he can be the star and browbeat anyone who objects to him with the power of his office.feedback

This is definitely bizarre, rapid-fire presidential policy making. It really is a 'shock and awe' strategy that every day there's a new, radical initiative, and it doesn't give journalists or the public a chance to get a grip on what just happened. I think he feels the 100 days of FDR and Ronald Reagan is passe, that in a speeded-up media environment, he wants to be known in history as having his first 100 hours be revolutionary.feedback

It's like the football player who starts throwing Hail Mary passes on the first down. It's exciting and he might make a touchdown or two, but there's a reason most professional coaches don't do that. In the long run it's a good way to lose the game.feedback

Any time you don't win the popular vote but you win by the Electoral College it makes people come unglued. It angers people that somebody can win the popular vote but you're not president.feedback

He's somebody who brags about it as this is a big event and he's the maestro.feedback

I don't think Trump has a great sense of the history of the White House. When you don't know your history, it's hard to fully respect the traditions. This is not somebody who brags about how many history biographies he's read.feedback
