The LA Times has launched a potent and incisive series examining the many severe limitations and burgeoning problems of the Trump administration. On on hand, one might be surprised that an organization—even a tough-minded editorial board in America’s second largest city—could make such a determination so quickly. On the other hand, the current administration is a veritable haboob of boobery, and there is nothing to be gained by forestalling the alarms. They do not. Topics thus far include Trump’s lies, his authoritarian tendencies, and his “war on journalism,” among others. Follow the series from the beginning, and read their explanation for “Why We Took a Stand on Trump.” You might also wish to support the paper with a digital and/or print subscription.
