    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.)

    No wonder President Trump and his media allies in the Murdoch empire (not only Fox News but also the Wall Street Journal editorial pages) have been hysterically trying to impugn special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s integrity and demand Hillary Clinton, not the president, be investigated. (Reminder: She was investigated; she is not president.) Some unhinged Trumpists have even egged Trump on to pardon all those involved, a fateful step that would trigger widespread demands for impeachment.

    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.

    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! Another grown-up! Kelly wound up burning his credibility over the death of Army Sgt. La David T. Johnson in Niger and the president’s condolence call.

    The indictments against Manafort and Gates are detailed here. They include tax charges as well as charges of conspiracy, making false statements and failure to register as foreign agents. The indictment lays out a web of shell companies that allegedly allowed them to conceal income. No mention is made of President Trump or the campaign, but some of the alleged wrongdoing continued “between in and around 2008 and 2017” (paragraph 14 of the indictment).

    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.

    Hillary Clinton is going to win comfortably. The suspense on election night will be over which red states fall into Clinton’s lap and whether the GOP loses its Senate majority. Pundits, elected officials, activists, pollsters, the media and donors know it. The voters, by increasingly enormous margins, say Donald Trump is going to lose. (In this week’s CBS poll, 63 percent think Clinton will win.)

    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.”

    Despite the eloquence of former president George W. Bush and Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) — all of whom have discussed the unfitness of President Trump and the unacceptability of Trumpism — we have yet to see a throng of brave Republicans step forward to grab their party back from the president.

    President-elect Donald Trump’s insistence on perpetuating egregious conflicts of interest and retaining ownership of businesses that receive money from foreign governments suggests that he will, on Day One in office, be in violation of the Emoluments Clause as soon as he enters office and, in the words of ethics expert Norman Eisen, be “courting disaster.”

    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.
