Montreal Simon: The Day Donald Trump Went Over the Deep End

It was only a matter of time before Donald Trump started to fall apart, or was driven over the edge by the pressures of being president. He never thought he'd win, so he wasn't ready.

Montreal Simon: Why Do So Many Trump Supporters Still Believe What He Says?

According to some reports Donald Trump's friends are worried about him.

It was Donald Trump's 71st birthday yesterday, and I think it's safe to say it wasn't a very happy one.First he found out that somebody had been shooting Republicans.Which since he is notoriously cowardly, must have had him wondering whether he might be next, and whether he really needed to be president.Then came the devastating news ...

Montreal Simon: Donald Trump’s Deeply Disturbing Loyalty Test

Donald Trump is still claiming that he did not try to force James Comey to sign a loyalty oath. And that Comey is the liar not him. But yesterday we got an idea of the kind of loyalty Boss Trump demands from those who work for him. And not only did it reinforce Comey's claim, it couldn't ...

Montreal Simon: Donald Trump and the Man Who Would Poison the World

I could barely watch the coverage of this latest terrorist attack. It was all so insane and so cowardly, and I felt I'd seen it all before. And what made it even more disgusting was to see Donald Trump try to turn that tragedy into bigotry, for crass political purposes.President Donald Trump on Saturday evening said the ...

Montreal Simon: Donald Trump and the End of the (American) World As We Know It.

A few months ago the big German magazine Der Spiegel ran this cover of Donald Trump.With the title "The End of the World, As We Know it."And yesterday when the flaming orange proclaimed that the U.S. is pulling out of the Paris Accord, it was shared on social media all over the planet.But while it ...

Oh boy. I thought I was going to be able to completely ignore Donald Trump's Magical Mystery Tour of the Middle East this week end.Which would have been good, because quite frankly I've got to break my Trump Show addiction, before I end up like him.

Montreal Simon: Donald Trump and the Demon Child In His Head

It's hardly surprising that Donald Trump is not happy with the appointment of a special counsel.

Montreal Simon: Donald Trump and the Revenge of James Comey

When Donald Trump fired or "terminated" James Comey so soon after blowing him a gangster kiss, hissing in his ear, and seeming to threaten him: He must have thought he had got rid of the troublesome FBI director.Scared him off with a horse's head, or a fish wrapped up in a newspaper.But sadly for Boss ...

Montreal Simon: One More Reason Donald Trump Must Go

When I ran this picture the other day I thought there was something strange about it. And it wasn't just that the U.S. media had been ordered out of the room.

Montreal Simon: Donald Trump and the Week From Hell

And he was seen to be both crazy, and dangerous, AND as dumb ...

Montreal Simon: Donald Trump and the Road to Impeachment

For about four days before he abruptly fired FBI director James Comey, Donald Trump practically disappeared from public view.Later he'd claim the reason he fired Comey was because "he wasn't doing a good job." And that his decision had absolutely NOTHING to do with the fact that Comey wanted to step up the FBI's investigation into the Trump ...
