(Bloomberg View) -- 1. Dave Hopkins on Trump's first 100 days. I agree with everything here, but I'll defend the alarmists (not all of whom were liberals or leftists). Trump's attachment to democratic norms remains weak, and his willingness to go along with conflict-of-interest and other normal ethics guidelines remains practically non-existent. That's not fascism, but it's not good for democracy -- and it's certainly possible that alarmists helped prevent things from being worse.
