Week in politics: Too much Trump

September 11, 2015

Unsurprisingly, this week was another Donald Trump extravaganza filled with insults, misogyny and more bombastic talk.

Let’s start with Hillary Clinton’s apology for the trouble caused by her use of a private email for government business. “I’m sorry about that,” Clinton said in an interview with ABC News. Not everyone deemed it convincing enough. Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson, Jr.  said that the only way Clinton can win the Democratic nomination is to become “the sorriest candidate in American history,” according to Salon. The Guardian has a timeline of her responses to the debacle.

More on Clinton: the Democratic front runner isn’t doing as well as she should be, said the Guardian in a scathing editorial.  “Her campaign is moving on leaden feet, and her ratings are slipping,” said the British newspaper.

Not a presidential candidate (yet), but Vice President Joe Biden sat down with Stephen Colbert on his new Late Show  and opened up about the loss of his son in a deeply emotional interview.
