E.J. Dionne: Trump Is the Only Politician in Our History Who Fends Off One Scandal with a New Scandal

‘And we have just become accustomed to this cycle’

DIONNE: "I actually think the state of the union is the state of the union and we should treat it as such. I think what’s really scary is we’ve normalized this abnormal cycle, that trump is the only politician in our history who fends off one scandal with new scandal. And we have just become accustomed to this cycle and, therefore, each particular thing isn’t taken seriously enough, and it rolls off our back."
