Column: Trump's act is wearing thin
ASHBURN, Va. -- Maybe this is how it ends for Donald Trump: not with a bang but with a child's whimper. The Republican presidential nominee, rallying supporters in a high school auditorium here, was talking about Chinese currency manipulation when an infant began to cry. "Don't...

Column: The facts behind Donald Trump's many falsehoods

Column: At the Democratic convention, women seize their moment
PHILADELPHIA -- Watching Hillary Clinton become the first woman to be nominated for president has inspired women at the Democratic National Convention to celebrate this singular moment. They put on temporary tattoos that said "Run like a girl" and "Pantsuit Up" and mugged for...

Some Trump-style speculation on the GOP and Putin

Column: Morning in America it wasn't
CLEVELAND -- It was a grand old party at Quicken Loans Arena on Thursday night. Delegates wore cowboy hats, straw hats, tricorn hats, stovepipe hats, cheesehead hats, evergreen hats and Uncle Sam hats. They bopped to the music of a seven-piece band and waved red, white and blue...

Column: Self-worship over sound judgment
CLEVELAND -- The Trump campaign has lately alternated between disaster and farce: the awkward rollout of Mike Pence, the botched logo, two parliamentary disputes on the convention floor, a muddled message, a plagiarized speech by the would-be first lady. But in one respect, the...

Column: For Trump, it's (white) America First
WASHINGTON -- It was just another week in Donald Trump's (white) America First campaign. At least twice, Trump alleged that people have called for a "moment of silence" for the madman who killed five police officers in Dallas at a Black Lives Matter protest. It was an incendiary...

Column: Obama's journey from hope to hard reality
WASHINGTON -- Behold the reluctant warrior. Five years and two weeks ago, President Obama addressed the nation about the end of the war in Afghanistan. There would be no more Americans in combat in Afghanistan in 2014, he said, vowing to match what he'd already accomplished in Iraq....

Column: Republican attacks on Comey undermine the rule of law

Column: For Trump, fringe conspiracies take center stage

Column: Trump's Potemkin village
WASHINGTON -- Not long ago, Donald Trump set a $1 billion fundraising goal for his presidential battle against Hillary Clinton. Now he says there's "no reason" to raise that much, and his operatives fear they will struggle to raise even $300 million. He brought in only $3.1 million...
