Yes, I am on vacation, but I had to take a break from my vacation to call attention to the amazing act of mind reading in a Washington Post article on the Trump administration's effort to nix federal funding for a new transit tunnel between New York City and New Jersey. While the piece notes the possibility that Trump's opposition to the project may be an act of political vengeance directed at Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, it tells readers:

"But Trump and his aides have come to take a different view of the project, seeing it as a potential boondoggle that should be funded by New York and New Jersey taxpayers."

Wow, isn't it fantastic that we have Washington Post reporters who can tell us how Trump and his aides actually "see" the project? After all, it might otherwise be hard to believe that anyone who wants to spend $25 billion on a wall along the Mexican border could see anything as a boondoggle.
