An editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
THE AMERICAN BULLY is let off the impeachment hook today, the day after he spent an hour and a half bragging about himself in the annual State of the Union speech.
And, as has become our habit, Canadians watched that speech, on CBC, CTV, even CPAC. We’re so caught up in the train wreck of American politics we can’t stay away.
Miraculously, Donald Trump stuck to his script and resisted the temptation to wander into the impeachment mess. Instead, he wisely stuck to talking about the economy, healthcare and terrorism.
