WATCH: SNL shows how the Trump presidency would go if he was black

Kenan Thompson played Darius Trump, who is married to Malika Trump and the father of Darius Jr. and Levanka.

Darius Trump is quickly arrested.

The credits then roll, before Darius Trump is freed because the president cannot be tried while in office.

That was the very point made by Rep. Ted Lieu of California, a progressive Democrat who sits on the House Judiciary Committee during our recent conversation on “Salon Talks.” That committee would be the starting point for an actual impeachment inquiry of the president.

US kicks off Mideast plan, with Palestinians boycotting

Published

on

After a wait of two and a half years, the US administration is launching its Middle East peace plan Tuesday -- with an economic initiative that the Palestinians are boycotting.

For this most unconventional of US presidents, Donald Trump's Middle East peace-making bid is unlike decades of previous US attempts.

There is no talk of land swaps, a Palestinian state or other political issues that have vexed diplomats for decades.

The Trump administration says it will get to the political issues later.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
