[OP-ED]: The Comey firing reminds us of a bigger danger

I have tried to evaluate Donald Trump’s presidency fairly. I’ve praised him when he has appointed competent people to high office and expressed support for his policies when they seemed serious and sensible (even though this has drawn criticism from some quarters). But there has always been another aspect to this presidency lurking beneath the surface, sometimes erupting into full view as it did this week. Donald Trump, in much of his rhetoric and many of his actions, poses a danger to American democracy.

[OP-ED]: Trump’s Dangerous Confusion Can No Longer Be Hidden

Trump’s problems are not only with the public, his own party comrades have also increasingly begun to run away from him, fearful that his unpopularity could be as contagious as the Zika virus --and cost them an election. EFE

C’mon people, give the man some credit. Yes, it’s true that these past few days have been completely chaotic and disastrous for the increasingly confused and erratic Donald Trump. But hey, how many other presidents have squandered their political capital so completely in such a short period of time?
