After listening to Cohen...

I've decided on something I could never quite be certain of: Donald Trump is not stupid. He is merely lazy and undisciplined in his thinking and intellectual development. He manages to be pretty shrewd about things when he wants to be, like ripping people off, shirking responsibility and bullying his way through life. But he wasn't born a moron. We all have potential to develop in any direction. Too bad he took a decent brain and developed only his criminal potential. And he was lazy even about that. But Putin sure knew who to peg to carry out his plan, didn't he? So when the whole truth comes out, I won't be wondering if he was just a patsy to Putin's master plan. He was a WILLING tool to gain as much advantage and power for himself as he could. Let him pay the full price for making that decision about his life. When Cummings says this may make Donald Trump a better person, I absolutely disagree. But it will make him a less destructive person.

I just subscribed to the Washington Post

I don't care why Bezos owns it and I don't care how evil he is. I am responding to the courage it took to stand up to blackmail.
