    You might remember that on September 15, columnist Dana Milbank of the Washington Post claimed that Trump is killing him. However, before Milbank has a chance to kick the bucket he will apparently lose his mind. Yes, Milbank is now also claiming in his September 22 column that President Trump actually is making us crazy:

    President Trump is killing me. Really. By Dana Milbank Opinion writer September 15 at 7:46 PM President Trump is killing me. No, really. Hes killing me. I went for my annual physical last month, and, for the first time in my 49 years, I had to report that Ive not been feeling well: fatigue, headaches, poor sleep, even some occasional chest pain. My doctor checked my blood pressure, which had always been normal before: alarmingly high! What could this mean? I dont smoke, Im not obese and I swim most days. The doctor hooked me up to electrodes and ran...

    Poor Dana Milbank. For all of his life he has been the picture of perfect health. And then Donald Trump was elected President and completely ruined it to the point where he is now dying. Milbank discusses his health crises in his September 15 Washington Post column, President Trump is killing me. Really.

    NY Post ^ | August 24, 2017 | Seth Mandel
    Allow me a moment of pride: The hot new criticism of my fellow Jews is that we dont complain enough. Really. A host of pundits, concerned about President Trumps baffling unwillingness to single out neo-Nazis for criticism, are turning to the American Jewish community and pleading: Would it kill you to maybe kvetch a bit? The idea we havent protested is bonkers, but more important, the lefts campaign to get all Jews to publicly denounce Trump has taken a profoundly dangerous and ugly turn. And it needs to stop. On Tuesday, the Washington Examiner reported that a coalition of left-leaning...

    Waaaaah! Dana Milbank is really really angry at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and if he doesn't do just want Dana wants him to do then he will be shunned by liberals forever and ever. Milbank went into full petulant fury mode on this topic in his May 12 Washington Post column in which he angrily declared how betrayed he feels over the fact that Rosenstein did not follow the approved liberal narrative on the James Comey firing. Not only did Rosenstein commit the heresy of issuing a memo listing the reasons for firing Comey which all liberals wanted to...
  • Washington Post's Milbank: Obamacare Repeal May 'Violate International Law'

    Did you know that international law could supercede American law? In fact, Congress may not be able to repeal ObamaCare because it would be in violation of international law. That is the point now being made by Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank. He cites the United Nations High Commissioner on human rights as well as Article 25 of the Universal Declarations of Human Rights and article 5(e) of the International Convention on Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimation to make his case. And if that doesn't convince you that American law should just be ignored, then Milbank pulls out...

    Gosh, Senator Cleaver, your questions are so insightful and interesting that I wish this confirmation hearing could go on forever! Unless a nomineeis a complete idiot, he (or she) will be incredibly polite during his confirmation hearings in the U.S. Senate. It is hardly the place to display a Fonzi (Happy Days) attitude. However, Dana Milbank in the March 21 Washington Post suggests that the politeness demonstrated by Neil Gorsuch during his confirmation hearing for Supreme Court justice could be insincere thus making him a judicial version of Eddie Haskell from Leave It to Beaver.If you are one of the...

    Hillary Clinton may have been unwise to say half of Donald Trump's supporters are racists and other "deplorables." But she wasnt wrong. If anything, when it comes to Trump's racist support, she might have low-balled the number.

    Yummy! Doesn't the idea of eating newsprint and ink sound absolutely delicious? Okay, maybe not so great but Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank is making the best of his promise to eat his column if Donald Trump won the nomination. To Milbank's great credit he is following through on his promise which he made last year and will be dining on his column, prepared by a chef, next Thursday. To find out how Milbank has ended up perhaps munching on Op-Ed Spring Roll, let us revisit his October 2015 promise:

    It has been an annual rite in Washington since the modern budgeting system began in 1974: The president sends his budget to Congress and lawmakers hold hearings on it. But not this year. The chairmen of the House and Senate budget committees announced, for the first time since their panels were created more than 40 years ago, that they would not have hearings on the presidents budget or allow administration officials to testify. They decided this before President Obama released his budget, refusing to contemplate any budget from Obama sight unseen. This declaration, like the Senate Republicans vow that...

    There is an old Jewish saying, "If you don't have anything nice to say, say it in Yiddish." It is in that spirit we offer this criticism of a fake criticism. I love it when a liberal Jew tosses around charges of Antisemitism when it's convenient. In a Friday column Dana Milbank decided that Ted Cruz's use of the word Chutzpah was an example of his hatred of the Chosen People. When Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) last month mocked Donald Trump's "New York values," it wasn't entirely clear what he was implying. This week we got a clue: For Cruz,...

    The Washington Post’s one-man Fifth Column, Dana Milbank, is at it again. Apparently, he has been shadowing Ted Cruz’s campaign. Unable to come up with anything substantive, what he’s produced is one of the most juvenile screeds ever to appear in any major newspaper: "When Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) last month mocked Donald Trump’s “New York values,” it wasn’t entirely clear what he was implying. This week we got a clue: For Cruz, “New York” is another way of saying “Jewish.” At an event in New Hampshire, Cruz, the Republican Iowa caucuses winner, was asked about campaign money he and...

    When Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) last month mocked Donald Trump‘s "New York values," it wasn‘t entirely clear what he was implying. This week we got a clue: For Cruz, "New York" is another way of saying "Jewish." At an event in New Hampshire, Cruz, the Republican Iowa caucuses winner, was asked about campaign money he and his wife borrowed from Goldman Sachs. Cruz, asserting that Trump had "upward of $480 million of loans from giant Wall Street banks," said: "For him to make this attack, to use a New York term, it‘s the height of chutzpah." Cruz, pausing for laughter...

    A couple of weeks ago, I wrote: “Let’s not mince words, Donald Trump is a bigot and a racist.” I cited a long list of incidents in which he targeted women, Latinos, African Americans, Muslims, Asians and the disabled. Here’s what I heard back from Trump’s defenders: “Let’s not mince words,” somebody tweeted under the name Helios Megistos. “Milbank is an anti-white parasite and a bigoted kike supremacist.” “[Trump] may well be a bigot and a racist,” one Michael Banfield wrote me via email. “But one thing is certain: The only thing missing from your photo is a [vulgar word...

    Donald Trump is a bigot and a racist Let’s not mince words: Donald Trump is a bigot and a racist. Some will think this an outrageous label to apply to the frontrunner for a major party’s presidential nomination. Ordinarily, I would agree that name-calling is part of what’s wrong with our politics. But there is a greater imperative not to be silent in the face of demagoguery. Trump in this campaign has gone after African Americans, immigrants, Latinos, Asians, women, Muslims and now the disabled. His pattern brings to mind the famous words of Martin Neimoller, the pastor and concentration...

    The two presidents stood in the East Room on Tuesday afternoon, united in their goal of defeating the Islamic State but separated by a stylistic gulf as vast as the Atlantic. On the left, facing the cameras, was François Hollande, war president. He spoke of “cowardly murderers” who “dishonor humanity,” of a “relentless determination to fight terrorism everywhere and anywhere,” of “an implacable joint response,” of “hunting down their leaders” and “taking back the land.” On the right stood Barack Obama, President Oh-bummer. Defeating the Islamic State? “That’s going to be a process that involves hard, methodical work. It’s not...

On Wednesday, the day the front-runner for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination was in New Hampshire alleging that Syrian refugees fleeing for their lives may actually be clandestine terrorists, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee was in Washington, talking sense. Donald Trump will not be the nominee, Romney told a group of business-school students at Georgetown University.

    I never expected to write these words, but I miss Mitt Romney. Last Wednesday, the day the front-runner for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination was in New Hampshire alleging that Syrian refugees fleeing for their lives may actually be clandestine terrorists, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee was in Washington, talking sense. "Donald Trump will not be the nominee," Romney told a group of business-school students at Georgetown University. And why won't Trump, who when he isn't besmirching Syrian refugees as terrorists is maligning Mexican immigrants as rapists, get the nod? Because, Romney said, "when all is said and done, the...

    Over the last two weeks Dana Milbank, the resident liberal gadfly and jeerer at conservatives, of the Washington Post, has found himself in high dudgeon at the so-called Republican reign of lawlessness in national politics. He has written a number of pieces touching on this and his other usual points. Milbank charged that the GOP Tea Party base is populated by illiterate ignoramuses. There is nothing new for Milbank, here. Certainly, he sees himself as a certified member of the highbrow intelligentsia and harbors a low estimate of conservatives generally, and Tea Party Republicans particularly. In a remarkable concession, Milbank...
