“The problem with the Trump admin policy on Iran isn’t that it won’t go to war. It’s that it keeps constructing policies that require the use of force to achieve objectives, when the president has made clear he’s unwilling to take that step.

Joe Biden’s demand that Cory Booker apologize to *him* is a reminder that he has several Trumpian tendencies, from overuse of hyperbole to a reluctance to admit when he’s wrong and a tendency to disregard sage advice from political professionals.
