Critics, then and now, have assailed Trump as a racist, egomaniacal, self-deluded bully. But this, of course, doesn't tell the whole story. He is also a loathsome, self-absorbed, fear-mongering creep. But this won't keep him from running for president.
When Macy's made their statement that their values of diversity and inclusion were incompatible with the statements Mr. Trump made they were not questioning his right to say them. They were expressing their freedom of association (and dissociation) with those articulated, public statements.
If Donald Trump wants to craft a consistent and favorable image for himself, he is not doing an effective job.
In this age of instant gratification and social media get-rich quick stories, it may be easy to forget that truly substantial changes rarely happen overnight and instead are the result of concerted efforts over time.
Ya gotta hand it to Donald Trump. Whenever he does something, he does it big. Huge...the biggest and the best!, as the self-aggrandizing Donald himself would say.
BC fired Donald Trump today. Last week Trump's Miss Universe pageant was dropped by Univision. Both networks are reacting to racist remarks by the Republican Primary contender, who is currently running second in the New Hampshire polls, ahead of Marco Rubio and only slightly trailing "Jeb!" Bush.
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) in London today released its long-term macroeconomic forecasts with key trends from now to 2050.

In 2005, I had a big bay window installed over my kitchen sink. Since I spend hours standing there, I reasoned I might as well look at something. I thought I was providing myself with a view of the garden, but it is the wildlife I've seen that has made that window worth every penny I paid for it.
I am happy that we have legalized same-sex marriage. But, as social activists have been touting for years, same-sex marriage does little to address the larger issues that affect the queer community.
Don Winslow is known to thriller lovers everywhere, especially after his extraordinary novel, Savages, which was made into a riveting film directed by Oliver Stone.
None of the claims generating so much controversy is worth war. China is carefully using "salami tactics," successively grabbing small pieces of a larger whole to avoid a conflict. But who is prepared to fight even for the larger whole?
One has to give it to the PVEM; its gamble to break the rules from day one paid off handsomely in the face of an ineffective INE. But the MC proved that you can do as well without such blatant disregard to the law.
