Sen. Dianne Feinstein didn't take long to do a flip-flop on a halfway positive comment about President Trump. She said in a speech: "I just hope he has the ability to learn and to change, and if he does,he can be a good president." A short time later she issued a statement repeating her past slams against Trump to reassure her fellow Democrats.
Critics of the Trump White House had a field day sniping at the first lady's choice of footwear for the first couple's visit to the hurricane-ravaged areas of south Texas. Truth is, Melania Trump would draw criticism if she had worn hip boots.
On a serious note, I join my colleagues in the National Society of Newspaper Columnists in helping raise disaster relief funds. We are urging our readers to send contributions to the organizations of their choice, including the American Red Cross http://tinyurl.com/y9r2eq7q, the Salvation Army http://tinyurl.com/5r59fvd and the Houston Flood Relief Fund http://tinyurl.com/y9ry46am.
