Last quote by Douglas Brinkley

If Trump fired Mueller, it would be an act of uber hubris never seen before in American history. It would pale compared to what Nixon did with the firing of Archibald Cox. . . . We would be in a constitutional crisis.feedback

Feb 18 2017

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

Feb 17 2017

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

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.

Jan 19 2017

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

Jan 19 2017

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
