Pulitzer Prize-winning sports columnist Dave Anderson dead at 89

Dave Anderson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for The New York Times, died Thursday in Cresskill, New Jersey. He was 89.

Anderson, who joined the Times in 1966 as a general assignment reporter, took over the newspaper’s “Sports of the Times” column in 1971, The New York Times reported.

Anderson won the Pulitzer in commentary in 1981, one of three sportswriters to win the award. The first was Red Smith, Anderson’s colleague at the Times, in 1976; Jim Murray of the Los Angeles Times won the award in 1990.

>> Notable deaths of 2018 

Anderson wrote for his high school and college newspapers and got his first professional job at 16 when he was hired as a messenger at The New York Sun, the Times reported.

He covered the Dodgers for the Brooklyn Eagle in 1953-54 and went to the New York Journal-American in 1955.

Anderson won the Associated Press Sports Editors’ Red Smith Award in 1994.

Judge Jeanine to Clinton: ‘Get back in the woods’

In her Opening Statement segment on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine” program Saturday night, Jeanine Pirro criticized Hillary Clinton for playing the “poor me” card. Pirro also said that the former Democratic presidential candidate was continuing to make excuses for her election loss last November. Pirro also took some shots at former President Bill Clinton during her monologue.

>> Read more trending news 

"We've had it with you Clintons claiming victimhood," Pirro said, after Hillary Clinton told an audience she would have been president if the election came before FBI Director Jim Comey sent a letter to Congress in October.

Pirro added that since the former first lady previously took responsibility for her loss, she should stop blaming "boogeymen" such as Comey and others.

“Hillary, snap out of it,” Pirro said on “Justice.” “You’re a two-time loser who lost because you were a lousy candidate.

“The two of you haven’t followed the rules since the day you both showed up in your bell bottoms in Arkansas,” Pirro said. “You’re a loser, Hillary. Face it. Face it. And get back in the woods.”

Sen. Rand Paul condemns U.S. airstrikes on Syria

In the wake of a heinous chemical weapons attack in Syria on Tuesday that reportedly killed 86 people including 27 children, on Thursday night President Trump ordered airstrikes on the air base from which that attack was launched. Trump’s order was his first direct assault on a foreign nation through executive order. This decision is troublesome to many Trump supporters and others who thought the president’s anti-Iraq war stance and arguments against nation building might prevent him from such action.

>> RELATED: U.S. fires more than 50 cruise missiles into Syria

Among them is Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who spent the week arguing that any military strikes against Syria would require a congressional declaration of war.

>> RELATED: Rand Paul says no war with Syria without congressional approval

In a series of tweets in response to the strikes, Paul said late Thursday, “While we all condemn the atrocities in Syria, the United States was not attacked. The President needs Congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate.”

“Our prior interventions in this region have done nothing to make us safer and Syria will be no different,” Paul said.

>> RELATED: Rand Paul reminds President Trump that he opposed Syria intervention back in 2013

Trump had a similar position in 2013 when President Obama was considering a U.S.-led strike on Syria.

The missile strikes on Thursday were fired from a U.S. Navy ship in the Mediterranean Sea. President Trump released a short video explaining that the attacks were in retaliation for the chemical attacks reported to be carried out by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

Writer disclosure: I co-authored the 2011 book ‘The Tea Party Goes to Washington’ with Sen. Rand Paul.

Donald Trump's KKK and Communist China problem

Let’s review the weekend Donald Trump had:

1. He danced around his receiving support from David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan, later blaming a “bad earpiece” for the reason he was able to repeat Duke’s name to host Jake Tapper but unable to say he didn’t want their support. (Click here if you're on mobile)

Yes, on Friday Trump had disavowed Duke’s support. Which, one might think, should have made it easy for him to repeat that disavowal during the interview Sunday as long as he could hear the name, which he clearly could. Rather, this looks like yet another instance of Trump — the hilariously monikered “truth teller” — talking out of both sides of his mouth as he makes it up on the fly. In other words, it’s another instance of Trump showing just how ill-suited he is for the presidency. (Note that when Duke ran for president as a Republican in 1992, the party did what it could to keep him off ballots.)

>>Related: Donald Trump is inconsistent on KKK, David Duke

2. He took the bait and retweeted a quote by Benito Mussolini — which had been tweeted by an account whose handle was explicitly a reference to the Italian fascist:

Trump tried to explain this away as his being interested in “interesting quotes,” not actual fascists. But this particular quote is not some innocuous thought about life in general: It’s the kind of thing a dictator says to justify his violence toward his own citizens. Which leads us to …

3. Trump’s quotes about the Tiananmen Square massacre from a 1990 interview with Playboy resurfaced:

Q: What were your other impressions of the Soviet Union? Trump: I was very unimpressed. Their system is a disaster. What you will see there soon is a revolution; the signs are all there with the demonstrations and picketing. Russia is out of control and the leadership knows it. That’s my problem with Gorbachev. Not a firm enough hand. Q: You mean firm hand as in China? Trump: When the students poured into Tiananmen Square, the Chinese government almost blew it. Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength. Our country is right now perceived as weak … as being spit on by the rest of the world —  Q: Why is Gorbachev not firm enough? Trump: I predict he will be overthrown, because he has shown extraordinary weakness. Suddenly, for the first time ever, there are coal-miner strikes and brush fires everywhere — which will all ultimately lead to a violent revolution. Yet Gorbachev is getting credit for being a wonderful leader and we should continue giving him credit, because he’s destroying the Soviet Union. But his giving an inch is going to end up costing him and all his friends what they most cherish — their jobs.

So, let’s review:

His “problem with Gorbachev” was that he didn’t put down the protests that ultimately led to the dissolution of the Soviet Union, marking the end of the Cold War. Winning the Cold War is generally considered one of the great American feats of the 20th century — and yet Trump as it was happening thought our country was “perceived as weak … as being spit on by the rest of the world.” And whose example did he deem “stronger”? That of the Chinese government, which killed hundreds if not thousands of its own people to put down similar protests.

That kind of strength, Trump seemed to admire. The kind of actions that could lead to a political leader “costing him and all his friends … their jobs”? Weakness.

Think about that for a moment: The man who would be president of the United States sided with the government that ordered the murder of its own people over a man (Gorbachev) who allowed protests that led to more democracy (even if Russia’s later leadership — including another leader Trump admires, Vladimir Putin — squandered that opportunity).

Just another day living like a lion instead of a sheep, amirite?

David Duke. Benito Mussolini. The killers of Tiananmen Square. These are the figures about whom Trump is ambivalent to admiring. No intellectually honest person can liken this kind of thinking to the GOP or conservative movement more broadly. This is, in terms of American politics, a unique kind of appeal that, as in other ways, is well out of step with mainstream Republicans and conservatives.

It should absolutely be rejected.
