Forget Mondays; Trump Hates Tuesdays: Theme of the Week
This Week Was Trump’s Terrible Tuesday II Week
(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Another week, another catastrophically bad Tuesday for President Donald Trump. On the first Terrible Tuesday, a couple of weeks ago, his former campaign manager and former personal lawyer, respectively, were convicted of and pleaded guilty to federal crimes, almost at the same moment. This Tuesday began with Trump’s White House still reeling from the damning allegations of Bob Woodward’s new book, “Fear,” and ended with an anonymous op-ed in the New York Times that confirmed one of Woodward’s most damning allegations: that the president’s staff doesn’t trust him with the presidency. Bloomberg Opinion writers covered it every step of the way.
