Trump occupying the White House in Washington, D.C., the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic in some countries swiftly became a “pandemic” after the virus rapidly spread throughout the world and came to the shores of the United States.

Here Are the Various Ways Donald Trump Could Be Prosecuted

Here Are the Various Ways Donald Trump Could Be ProsecutedHillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, James Comey, Christopher Steele, John Bolton, a Time journalist, flag burners—this is just a partial list of the people Donald Trump has wanted to see imprisoned during his ignominious presidency. Yet the moment he steps out of the White House, shedding the sheath of immunity that enshrines all presidents, it is Trump who should be most concerned about a legal reckoning. His list of alleged offenses, committed both during and before his presidency, includes tax and bank fraud, obstruction of justice, bribery, defamation, and more. Legal experts have even debated whether Trump could face criminal charges connected to his woeful response to the coronavirus pandemic. In its 244-year history, the United States has never prosecuted a president (that is, outside the specialized judicial theater of impeachment). Not that some didn’t deserve it. The reticence is…

Trump Imitates King Joffrey From “Game of Thrones”

Trump Imitates King Joffrey From “Game of Thrones”Jack Gleeson as King Joffrey in Game of Thrones (HBO).  In a recent outburst at a reporter who asked a question he didn’t like, President Trump angrily insisted that “I’m the President of the United States! Don’t ever talk to the president that way!” This is far from the worst Trump temper tantrum. But it caught my eye because of the similarity to a famous scene in Season 3 of Game of Thrones where King Joffrey throws a very similar tantrum and insists “I am the king!” As Joffrey’s grandfather Lord Tywin points out in response, “any man who must say ‘I am the king’ is no true king.” He then makes Joffrey go to bed.   Joffrey’s cruelty and total lack of self-control have often been analogized to Trump’s similar qualities, including by George R.R. Martin, author of the books on which…

How a Republican Congresswoman Won by Betting on Trump

How a Republican Congresswoman Won by Betting on TrumpFor the past three presidential elections, New York’s Twenty-First Congressional District—a humongous swath of rural, mountainous territory known as the North Country that’s closer to Canada than to the Big Apple—has voted along with the nation: Its constituents backed Barack Obama twice before flipping to Donald Trump in 2016.“This district is really a bellwether district,” its Republican representative, Elise Stefanik, told me matter of factly a few weeks before the election. Cruising to a fourth term in the House, she had no reason to believe this time would be different.But as the country turned left this year, Stefanik’s constituents, like their counterparts in many other rural areas, lurched further right. While a slim majority of Americans nationwide cast their ballots for Joe Biden, the overwhelming majority of voters in New York’s Twenty-First—nearly 60 percent, at last count—went for Trump. And an even…

Evangelicalism After Trump

Evangelicalism After TrumpAndy Stanley’s evangelical megachurch was empty on Election Night, with only a few cars in the Disney World–style parking lot out front. North Point Community Church and its nine satellites in the Atlanta area have been mostly closed since the coronavirus pandemic began in March. When Stanley decided to cancel in-person worship until at least early 2021, dozens of families were so unhappy that they decided to quit his church. “Never once did I hear, ‘We’re upset because we miss coming to church,’” he told me, leaning back in a heather-gray wingback chair. The vibe of his church offices is tasteful and inoffensive, as if his decorator was trying to channel that magic Fixer Upper quality of looking distinctive while appealing to almost everyone. “What I heard was, ‘We’re upset because you bought into a political agenda. We’re upset because you believe the Democrats’ narrative.’”Stanley has spent his…
