Donald Trump sets a high mark here. He never talks about his mother, never mentions her in his speeches. In fact, Mrs. Trump senior seems shrouded in secrecy.

Is the novelty of Donald Trump wearing off? Trump's attempts to play nice with the Republican establishment can only hurt his brand and dissipate the energy of his angry white base.
Right now he is trying to sell himself as president of the United States, the most powerful position in the world by using the prince charming myth--he is rich, he is powerful, he will fix everything somehow.
This election is important not only to the people of the United States but the entire world is looking on and will judge us by the outcome.
Last Thursday morning, a huge crowd of reporters breathlessly covered presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump's meeting with House Speaker Paul Ryan. But the real action took place the day before the meeting -- and the person who "caved" wasn't Ryan, but Trump.
As the Senate's conduct has placed us in new territory, the system should be open to breaking new ground in how the Constitution should be applied. There's a new question that might admit of a new answer.
Scandal is wild and addictive. And it's so easy to be dazzled by the sex, political wrangling, high-speed dialogue, and flashy camera work that you can sometimes forget it's a blistering satire of the Republican Party.
Iranian leaders have breached both the resolutions and the nuclear agreement for the third time since the nuclear deal went into effect in January 2016. Iran has repeatedly test-fired, long-range ballistic missiles and laser-guided surface-to-surface missiles.
This week, the nation watched as the Republican Party continued its awkward attempt to pretend Donald Trump is something other than a dangerous buffoon. On Thursday, Trump met with Paul Ryan, with the two calling the talk a "positive step toward unification," and Ryan adding that Trump is a "very warm and genuine person." If Ryan ends up endorsing Trump, he must be held accountable for what he's endorsing. As Senator Harry Reid said of his GOP counterpart, "Since Sen. McConnell has so enthusiastically embraced Trump, you can only assume he agrees with Trump's view that women are dogs and pigs." Rough stuff but he has a point: You either believe we should deport 12 million people or you don't. You either believe there should be a religious test to enter the U.S. or you don't. But the GOP isn't alone in its attempts to white-wash Trump. The New York Times referred to Trump's racism as "a reductive approach to ethnicity." This is how someone like Trump can actually get to the White House in 2016: because of the reluctance -- by political leaders and the media -- to call out racism when they see it.
The Constitution is being abused. Attention must be paid.
