Finally, if you have not yet read Thomas Friedman’s Op-Ed in the New York Times, you’ve got to see it. Here’s how his opinion piece begins:
“President Trump is either totally compromised by the Russians or is a towering fool, or both, but either way he has shown himself unwilling or unable to defend America against a Russian campaign to divide and undermine our democracy.”
