    It’s much easier to deal with poverty if you can convince yourself that the impoverished brought it on themselves. Nearly everyone would concur that those who suffer from poverty through no fault of their own deserve support from others, either through nonprofit or public sector assistance. But if they’re poor because of their own bad decisions? They have to fend for themselves.

    A presidential election settled by 0.057 percent of the national vote in three states — as the 2016 election was — will necessarily lend itself to quite a bit of finger-pointing. Swinging 77,744 votes in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin means changing the minds of 38,872 people, 0.01 percent of the American population. If Hillary Clinton’s campaign had changed those 40,000-odd minds, she’d be president today. But she didn’t.

    It’s been less than a week since America first learned of the existence of an email that seemed to clearly demonstrate the willingness of some in the Trump campaign to accept the assistance of the Russian government in their effort to win the 2016 presidential race. In black and white, Donald Trump Jr. is offered the opportunity to meet with a lawyer connected to the Russian government who can provide “documents and information that would incriminate” Hillary Clinton. That information, Trump Jr. is told, “is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”

    "Most Americans Think Trump Jr.'s Meeting Was Inappropriate — but Few Were Newly Convinced of Collusion" is from the July 17, 2017 Politics section of The Washington Post. It was written by Philip Bump  and narrated by Sam Scholl.

    Donald Trump’s unorthodox candidacy blossomed into an unorthodox presidency. In the White House, Trump carries with him all of the complex, tricky and fraught behaviors and tendencies that powered him through the 2016 campaign. He also carries with him the decisions and interactions that led him to victory — including a staff that may have some nebulous ties to a Russian government that wanted to see him victorious.

    So President Trump wants a parade. He has wanted one since his inauguration, when the planning committee for the event reached out to the Pentagon for “pictures of military vehicles we could add to the [inaugural] parade.” That request was eventually abandoned, but the idea has returned, apparently thanks to Trump’s having visited France’s Bastille Day celebration last year and observing its military march through the streets of Paris.

    There are any number of lessons to be taken from the events of Sept. 11, 2001: the sacrifices of the first responders, the stories of those who were killed, the emergence of terrorism as a critical threat to the United States.

    The boldest voices to emerge in the wake of last week’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., have been unexpected ones. Surviving students at the school quickly spoke out on social media and to news cameras about the violence and, more broadly, about political leadership that they saw as having let them down.
