    Even when President Donal Trump appears to have done the right thing it can leave you scratching your head.

    WASHINGTON — If there is one operative rule in this city’s left-right paradigm, it is to shift the focus of any conversation that seems at risk of revealing something approximating truth — a game at which the current administration and its media surrogates happen to excel.

    WASHINGTON — “I inherited a mess!” President Trump complained during a news conference with Jordan’s King Abdullah II on Wednesday afternoon.

    More than a dozen cities, including Ferguson, Mo., have spent arduous months hammering out consent decrees with the U.S. Justice Department to institute much-needed police and judicial reforms aimed in large part at reducing enforcement disparities that unfairly target poor and minority communities. The cooperation of local police departments was key in reaching these agreements, which makes them partners in fixing what’s wrong.

    WASHINGTON — Impulse control is unfashionable as well as unpresidential, but perhaps you should resist the urge to trip people who stride briskly down the sidewalk fixated on their phone screens, absorbed in texting and feeling entitled to expect others to make way. New technologies are shaping behaviors and dissolving civilities.

    With Democrats poised to filibuster Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, consider what the Senate votes were for a couple of the current justices, plus the man Gorsuch would replace:

    Two items of news from Somalia — the Trump administration lowering the level of accountability for U.S. bomb and drone attacks, and the onset of famine — are not unrelated.

    During the campaign, Donald Trump talked loudly and often about how he was going to renegotiate the United States’ “horrible trade deals,” bringing back millions of good jobs. So far, however, nothing has happened. Not only is Trumpist trade policy — Trumptrade? — nowhere to be seen in practice; there isn’t even any indication of what it will involve.

    A higher education business model targeted in the Obama administration for preying on military veterans, minorities and poor people is poised to get a second life under the new education secretary, Betsy DeVos. The businesses are for-profit college companies, including Trump University, which racked up enormous student debt that led to exploding default rates. They prey on students who lack the academic credentials to get into public higher education institutions.

    A century ago — April 6, 1917 — America entered “The Great War” in Europe after spending nearly three years resolutely determined to stay out. The war churned on for another 19 months and claimed 117,000 American lives. The last of the soldiers and sailors who survived battles “over there” are gone.

    President Donald Trump’s preliminary budget, released in mid-March, slashes a number of domestic programs. The one that hits closest to home for me is the total defunding of the Corp. for Public Broadcasting, a private nonprofit corporation created by Congress to distribute funds to the nation’s public television and radio stations. The elimination of federal funding would silence a large segment of independent and free media at a time when we need trustworthy information more than ever.

    WASHINGTON — The name of the game is gaming the name.
