Pruden: The Donald tries out for the team

By Wesley Pruden | Now even Donald Trump is taking himself seriously. He’s trying now to be colorful without being reckless, careful not to be rude when he doesn’t have to be, and playing less the showboat and more like someone trying out for the team. He’s still Donald Trump, and he hasn’t been to […]

Pruden: New pronouns for the traveling freak show
