A cornered cat indeed makes strange jumps

Donald Trump’s latest reality entertainment, America Has Tyrants, is headed toward the dead show vault.

But that doesn’t mean anyone can relax. Cornered cats make strange jumps, after all. And the president is now the cat in the corner.

For the past few weeks, I have been writing in this space that the Trump bus is headed for a smash-up. And so is America. This week, yet more senior members of his former inner circle hit the bridge abutment.
