The Water's Edge

So, there was this bombshell today.

Hard to believe. Here's the story as reported in the New York Times.

As I gasped at lunch today, my ten-year-old son inquired about what had me upset. Here's how I explained it to him.

Me: Trump wants the Russians to hack and reveal e-mails by Hillary. 

Sam: Why would the Russians want to do that? 

Me: So they could make money from the American newspapers. 

I'm stunned that I had to explain that kind of behavior coming from a presidential candidate.

Politics and partisanship stops at the water's edge. No political opponent is so frightening that reaching out to rivals to tamper with our nation's security and sovereignty can be justified. Mr. Trump acted shamefully today.
