    After two days, blistering criticism from his own party and tougher anti-white-nationalist statements from the company that makes Tiki torches and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Trump dragged himself to the podium for a statement that specifically condemned white nationalists, neo-Nazis and other racists. He had to begin with some self-congratulations on the economy — because his accomplishments are what he really cares about. He told the country, “To anyone who acted criminally in this weekend’s racist violence, you will be held fully accountable. Justice will be delivered.” He finally spit it out by calling racism “evil” and condemning the “KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups.”

    Republicans insist that the “left” (nefarious, unidentified, omnipotent) would have gone after any Supreme Court nominee whom President Trump sent to the Senate. Well, the left wasn’t thrilled that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) decided to turn the high court into another tribal battlefield — first in denying Judge Merrick Garland a hearing in 2016, and then by ending the filibuster — but no one raised any hint of ethical, temperamental or criminal wrongdoing when Neil M. Gorsuch came up for a vote. Yes, he was a staunch conservative (as was Antonin Scalia), unlikely to color outside the lines of conservative jurisprudence, but he was restrained, respectful and apolitical. (One can be conservative in judicial philosophy and not be a rabid partisan.)

    Trump insisted on digging his hole deeper. He tweeted: “Give the public a break – The FAKE NEWS media is trying to say that large scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!” Actually, Fox News was trying to say it was not working but unfortunately latched onto a disreputable source. (The Post, like other legitimate new sources, accurately reported, “The influx of refugees has not come without problems in Sweden, but mainstream politicians and immigration experts say the criticism has been disproportionate. In summer 2016, Swedish embassies were tasked to counter rumors or false information about Sweden’s experience with taking in large numbers of immigrants.”) We’d be curious to hear the horror stories Trump thinks have occurred in Sweden which justify his conclusion that it’s a nightmare.

    In response to the burgeoning Russia probe, President Trump bases his claim that it is all a “hoax” on two arguments, both of which we have come to see are flagrantly false.

    President-elect Donald Trump insists on dumping on the intelligence community that he will need to depend upon in less than three weeks. On Tuesday, he falsely claimed that the briefing on Russian hacking was postponed until Friday. (Intelligence officials say it was already set for that date.) He openly mocked the professionals who provide vital intelligence to the country: “The ‘Intelligence’ briefing on so-called ‘Russian hacking’ was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!”

    Remember the cheers that greeted the announcement that John F. Kelly would replace Reince Priebus as chief of staff? Finally we’ll get a buttoned-down Oval Office! He’ll bring discipline!

    Republicans and Democrats alike have been deluding themselves for some time about White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly. They were certain that Kelly was a “grown-up” who understood that the president the American people elected was hobbled — morally, intellectually, temperamentally — and it was Kelly’s job to steer the ship of state away from the rocks. He wouldn’t lie to the American people as President Trump did, these Kelly fans believed.

    I’ve not favored using the 25th Amendment as a means for dislodging an unfit president. For one thing, we shouldn’t medicalize behavior for political reasons, and for another, they’ll be no end to claim of mental impairment if we allow the phrase “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office” to become synonymous with poor performance. Moreover, the Founding Fathers had a solution for removing unfit presidents: impeachment in cases of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” If read correctly, the impeachment mechanism covers a range of misconduct well beyond illegality.

    Former acting attorney general Sally Yates, who first alerted the White House to ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn’s lies and who was fired for refusing to defend the first travel ban (which was subsequently struck down, and then dropped by the administration) gave a recent interview. Her remarks should be taken to heart:

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been among President Trump’s most rabid supporters of the travel ban, building a wall on the southern border and a crackdown on so-called sanctuary cities. Meanwhile, he favors heavy-handed techniques such as civil asset forfeiture, which both libertarian-minded conservatives and liberals find unpalatable.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions apparently convinced President Trump he had no choice but to pull the plug on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, using a phony deadline as the pretext. Stephen K. Bannon and the alt-right may think this was a terrific idea, but the polls say otherwise — as does Trump’s newfound interest in finding a fix to his own political malpractice.

    The administration is playing defense, offering contradictory justifications for its abstention at the U.N. Security Council on a resolution declaring everything — including all of East Jerusalem — to be an illegal occupation and virtually inviting boycotts and international sanctions against Israel. Among the strongest critics of President Obama’s decision are Democrats like incoming minority leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) and House minority whip Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.). Even his former Middle East envoy George Mitchell says it was a mistake not to veto the resolution.
