华盛顿邮报今天有篇文章写得很有趣,忍不住把第一段摘抄下来。

题目:This week of Trump was appalling. And Typical.

The past week of the Trump presidency felt like that point in a video game when you've reached a new level and the widgets suddenly start flying at you too fast to dodge. There was an attack on free speech. On an independent judiciary. And with the president's horrific reference to "shithole countries", on America's tradition of offering a welcoming hand to the downtrodden. So much so quickly that it's difficult to process it all. 

刚刚过去的这一周的确可以算川普负面新闻事件集中爆发的一周。攻击言论自由,攻击司法独立。美国历史上还没有任何一位总统敢于挑战美国社会制度的这两块基石的。

言论自由是美国制度的第一核心,但据huffingtonpost报道:Yesterday(1月4日), in an interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl, Reince Priebus, President Trump’s Chief of Staff, said that the administration is considering pushing to change the First Amendment to make it easier for the White House to sue media organizations, and that the media needs “to be more responsible with how they report the news.” 

具体新闻大家可自行搜索。我个人推荐washingtonpost.com,政论和时评文章较全面。

另一个高质量时评文章网站推荐The Atlantic.

推荐一篇批评川普破坏美国司法独立和民主制度的文章:https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/06/the-gop-front-runner-takes-aim-at-the-independent-judiciary/485087/

另一个质量较高的网站是纽约时报,但可惜在我国Nytimes网站是打不开的......

Michael Wolff的炮火硝烟尚未消散,川普又自己制造了以上几个麻烦给自己,我们下周静观美国舆论的动向。

今天上午跟一个武馆的同学聊到《火与怒》这本书时,大家还在说,美国人对俄罗斯人说:”我们可以随时骂我们的总统。“俄罗斯人说:”我们也可以(骂美国总统)。“
