Bush, Clinton dynasties hit bumps on trail

mysanantonio.com — I can only imagine 41's dismay and disbelief - and acid flashbacks to spoiler Ross Perot - now that Trump has popped up to block the path of the son whom Poppy desperately wants to see as 45, restoring the family name after 43's spiral.

Maureen Dowd: Jeb put in shade by the antics of the Trumpster

irishtimes.com — Pity Poppy. When I went down to Houston a few years ago to eat pizza with the former president, he was his usual gracious self, speaking fondly about President Barack Obama and his new pal Bill Clinton. But there was one person who got dismissed with a brusque obscenity: Donald Trump.

ON WASHINGTON - GOD IN HIS KINGDOM - NYTimes.com

nytimes.com — The distinction between the historical and the trivial has no place in Washington. If you're really big, nothing about you is too small. Thus the green suspenders with blue border that Larry King wore on the night of the great Nafta debate are now museologically secure, safely a part of the national patrimony.

Can strutting Trump get past ‘swimsuit competition’?

mysanantonio.com — he has exploded the hoary conventions, money-grubbing advisers and fundraising excesses of the presidential campaign, turning everything upside down, inside out, into sauerkraut. The Donald's strange pompadour and Hillary's strange server have eclipsed all the usual primary permutations. Because Trump is so loud, omnipresent, multiplatform and cutting, he's shaping the perception of the other candidates.

Trump’s strongman tactics may be just what voters want

irishtimes.com — Some blondes have all the fun. As Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush get more testy, Donald Trump gets more chesty. And more blond. It's mind-boggling to contemplate a president Trump trying to make peace between North and South Korea, even as we watch the pugnacious candidate Trump trolling poor Jeb on Twitter and predicting that poor Hillary would have to run the country from Leavenworth.

Trump’s show may not be all bad

lasvegassun.com — John Minchillo / Associated Press I've been hesitant to start writing about Donald Trump. I was worried that if I wrote something that made him mad, he would send out one of his midnight mordant tweets about me, something like, "She started as a 3. Now she's a 1."

Maureen Dowd: Donald Trump is a most unlikely diplomat

irishtimes.com — Donald Trump gives me his Grumpy Cat look. I'm sitting in his office in Trump Tower high above Fifth Avenue, next to a wall plastered with framed magazine covers giving the effect of an infinity mirror, his face endlessly multiplying - including an old Playboy with the real estate mogul slyly smiling next to a comely bunny.

Lightning Round With Donald Trump

nytimes.com — Because it's hard to contain the Vesuvial Donald Trump in 1,300 words of my column, we did a round of questions about his rivals and a few other boldface names in the news this week. Here are Trump's rapid-fire impressions, delivered over the phone and over lunch at the restaurant in Trump Tower - the art of the meal with the birther of a nation.
