Donald Trump claims he is seeking the presidency because he loves his country. Why shouldn't he? It has allowed him to become a wealthy man. It is obvious he loves himself, too. The question is: which does he love more? If it is himself, he will keep going.

In 1981, Bernie Shaw stood up to his bosses and the opposition networks and kept Jim Brady alive. He was right, the rest of us were wrong and he saved our "unique" credibility. It's too bad there no was no Bernie Shaw at CNN or Fox yesterday.
