Column: A toxic meeting on the tarmac
WASHINGTON -- Attorney General Loretta Lynch's tarmac conversation with Bill Clinton wasn't just stupid, although it was certainly that. It was a colossal misjudgment on both sides, most especially hers. The encounter was toxic. It adds to the already settled conviction among too...

Column: For the GOP, a pickle of a platform
WASHINGTON -- How do you write a platform for a party whose candidate's positions span the unfortunate gamut from nonexistent to offensive to flatly at odds with those of the party? Such is the thankless task consigned this year to Sen. John Barrasso. The Wyoming Republican is a...

Column: The danger we can confront
WASHINGTON — Along came the alligator. A horrifying story at the end of a horrifying stretch, a heartbreaking coda befitting a nation on perpetual edge. That the story would go viral was guaranteed: a 2-year-old grabbed, his father trying in vain to fight off the primordial beast,...

Column: The parent trap
WASHINGTON — Somehow, it’s always the parents’ fault. We are too lax, except when we are too helicoptery. We coddle the kids too much, except when we drive them into neurotic overachievement. We are enablers. No, we are Tiger Moms. The societal urge to blame is matched only...

Trump's outlaw view of the Supreme Court
“The complete independence of the courts of justice is peculiarly essential in a limited Constitution.” — Alexander Hamilton, Federalist 78. WASHINGTON — Somewhere, Hamilton — West Indian, not Mexican — is weeping over Donald Trump and his alarming, ignorant conception...

“I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible.” — Email from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to aide Huma Abedin, November 2010, contained in State Department inspector general’s report on Clinton’s private email use. WASHINGTON — This is not a smoking...

Column: Trump's lying is in a class by itself
WASHINGTON — Stonewaller, shape-shifter, liar. I wrote last week about how an all-but-certain presidential nominee embodied these characteristics, prompting comments from readers observing, with varying degrees of snarkiness, that they had assumed I was referring to Hillary Clinton....

Column: Trump is a stonewaller, shape-shifter, liar
WASHINGTON — The last few weeks have offered Americans a chilling glimpse of three faces of Donald Trump: the stonewaller, the shape-shifter and the liar. Trump the stonewaller has been on display in his refusal to release his tax returns. “It’s none of your business,” Trump...

Column: When age really becomes a number
WASHINGTON — “Ruth, you have a birthday coming up!” My friend’s voice contained an odd note of reproach, faint but unmistakable. The reason quickly became clear. “You have to get your age off your Facebook profile,” my friend said. She is an experienced Washington hand,...

Column: Sheryl Sandberg, business titan and single mother

Column: If Trump were a woman
WASHINGTON — Regarding Donald Trump’s insulting, diminishing assertion about Hillary Clinton that she is only succeeding by playing “the woman’s card” and that if she “were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5 percent of the vote”: If Trump were a woman, he’d be lucky...

Column: The fault line between parties and voters
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump claims the Republican presidential primary system is “corrupt” and “rigged” against him. If anything, the opposite is true: The party’s rules have largely operated in Trump’s favor. Witness the fact that, going into Tuesday’s primaries, Trump...

Column: A conversation beyond bathroom talk
WASHINGTON — Into the overheated, under-informed bathroom wars comes a well-timed intrusion of sanity in the form of a decision by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The court’s ruling in the case of Virginia high-school junior Gavin Grimm, a transgender boy, was correct —...
