    The most striking aspect of the vast and swiftly organized movement against President Trump is how little it had to do with the Democratic Party. Whoever is elected to chair the Democratic National Committee this weekend should draw two conclusions from this, and they are in tension.

    American democracy was never supposed to give the nation a president like Donald Trump. We have never had a president who gave rise to such widespread alarm about his lack of commitment to the institutions of self-government, to the norms democracy requires, and to the need for basic knowledge about how government works. We have never had a president who raises profound questions about his basic competence and his psychological capacity to take on the most challenging political office in the world.

    Let it be said that the word “allegations” is key. A lot of what has been released has not been verified. It could turn out to be a mixture of truth and enough that’s not true to allow Trump to push it all aside, as he did at his news conference Wednesday. “It’s all fake news,” he said. “It’s phony stuff. It didn’t happen.”

    "Trump Proved Obama’s Point" is from the January 11, 2017 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by E.J. Dionne Jr. and narrated by Sam Scholl.

The hearing began against the backdrop of shocking allegations that Russian intelligence services have compromising material on Trump’s personal life and finances. There are also reports of collusion between Trump’s political operatives and Russia’s spies and cyber-thieves.

    So let us consider what good might come from the political situation in which we will find ourselves in 2017. Doing this does not require denying the dangers posed by a Donald Trump presidency or the demolition of progressive achievements he could oversee. It does mean remembering an important distinction President Obama has made ever since he entered public life: that “hope is not blind optimism.”

    "The Good That Could Come From a Trump Presidency " is from the December 29, 2016 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by E.J. Dionne Jr. and narrated by Sam Scholl.
