Jon Schwarz at The Intercept: “Every now and then, in the midst of his unending eruption of prevarication, Trump will blurt out the truth about the United States in a way that no normal politician ever has.”

Cory Doctorow: “Yes, Trump is a pathological liar, but he’s also the first US president to call Ted Cruz a liar, the first to admit that the Saudis were likely behind 9/11, the first to admit that the Saudi royals can kill a lot of journalists but that the US will still do business with them because they buy a lot of American bombs, that Nancy Pelosi blew a chance to impeach Bush, that pharma and defense contractors rip off the American public, that politicians are for sale to their political donors, that Vladimir Putin doesn’t have a monopoly on political assassination (and that the US is hardly innocent on this score), and that going into Iraq was a ‘big, fat mistake.’”
