Attorney Scott Pilutik wrestles with the news of the day, from a lawyerly perspective…

In 2012-13, Donald Trump repeatedly signaled his cynical belief that starting a war with Iran was a smart strategy available to President Obama to raise his poll numbers and reelection chances.

On one hand that's in the rear-view mirror and perhaps not worth belaboring, but I'm not pointing to it as an example of hypocrisy. I'm pointing to it because it jibes with everything else we know about Trump heedlessly lurching from crises of his own making without a plan except for his bile, self-interest, and dated, mistaken assumptions about how the world works.
