Anything but a quiet week in Washington politics
Grant Reeher, professor of political science and director of the Campbell Institute for Public Affairs in the Maxwell School, was quoted in an article in The Hill “For Trump, this week has been anything but sleepy.”
From the article:
“That’s the kind of historic comparison that leaves some observers skeptical that a Trump collapse is likely, or that the most recent controversies will have any discernible effect.
‘There have been so many things over the last couple of years that it is just impossible to point to one thing that is going to be a particular problem, or more of a problem than the rest,’ said Grant Reeher, a professor of political science at Syracuse University.
Reeher added, referring to the Manigault Newman and Brennan episodes, and the Manafort trial, ‘under normal circumstances, you could say that any one of those things could be a real distraction — but the real fact of the matter is that [with Trump], you just go from distraction to distraction.'”
