Quote of the Day

Trump doesn't think in terms of morality or human rights, he thinks only in terms of power and dominance.  Might makes right.  Putin thinks the same way, albeit much more strategically.  And Trump appears to have fallen hard for Putin's macho "bare-chested autocrat" act.  He doesn't just like Putin -- he seems to want to be like Putin, a white authoritarian leader who could put down dissenters, repress minorities, disenfranchise voters, weaken the press, and amass untold billions for himself.  He dreams of Moscow on the Potomac.

-- Hillary Rodham Clinton, What Happened, p. 334
