It's unnerving covering a president who is treated like a boy king, requiring minders; who is easily swayed because he is underinformed; who can sit still only long enough for short oral briefings; who swaggers and mocks to mask his insecurities; who tries to replace real news with faux; and who can't ...

Or at least the week he became the president we were always expecting. He ceased bothering to pretend that he was ever going to do the job in any normal sense of the word. He decided to totally own the whole, entire joke that he is. He started hiring people right off TV. He extended his tiny fingers into ...

EDITOR'S NOTE: Maureen Dowd, winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary and author of two New York Times best sellers, has been a New York Times Op-Ed columnist since 1995. She is also a writer for The Times Magazine.
Arthur Gelb, the human pinball machine who served for decades as The New York Times culture czar, had many fantastic stories. But my favorite was his attempt to assign our music critic a feature on Wanda Horowitz. Arthur had met her at a dinner party one night and was intrigued by what life must be like ...

Maureen Dowd: Like the Alma character in “Phantom Thread,” you sometimes have to put poisonous mushroom shavings in your husband's eggs to settle him down. Rebecca Miller: I don't relate to that, quite. Like your character Greta in “Personal Velocity,” you're rotten with ambition. I am a little bit led by ...
New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd spoke for so much of the liberal establishment when she lionized Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a soldier killed in the Iraq war. “The moral authority of parents who bury children killed in Iraq is absolute,” Dowd insisted. NBC News turned Sheehan into a national ...
During his campaign, Donald Trump often bragged about his skill as a negotiator. In conversations, he ventured that, as president, he might be able to resolve two of the most thorny and tragic dilemmas: finding peace in the Mideast and reaching a sensible compromise on guns. He said he would hop in his ...
Donald Trump slipped into the Oval Office through a wormhole of confusion about the American identity. We weren't winning wars anymore. They just went on and on and on, with inexplicable and deceptive aims and so many lives and limbs and trillions lost. We couldn't believe in our institutions, with ...
The thrill of victory and the agony of getting out of bed. Welcome to the weekend. The Olympics have kicked off in grand style. Whether you are an ace skier or would rather watch marathons of the Netflix kind, we like you just the same. Here are some amazing stories you may have missed this week. They're ...
Mr. Tarantino said he and Maureen Dowd, the author of the Times piece, had not connected for an interview, telling Deadline, “Me and Dowd never hooked up.” Ms. Dowd said on Tuesday that she had reached out to Mr. Tarantino six times, twice through his agent, twice through his personal assistant and ...
Thurman has now told her story — some of it, at any rate — to op-ed columnist Maureen Dowd at the New York Times. But while it sheds some light on Thurman's experiences with Weinstein and director Quentin Tarantino, Dowd's treatment of the story has inspired both confusion and criticism. Though ...
So Tim Robbins and Donald Trump walk into a bar. Not together. They just happened to be in the same Greenwich Village club one night in the mid-1990s. But given the fact that fame is an irresistible magnet for Mr. Trump, the two men naturally ended up in a picture. “I was throwing a private party for a ...
Maureen Dowd: Donald Trump reminds you of your late pal Don Rickles. Tim Robbins: Not at all. Don was funny. And even though he had that kind of punk persona of the bad boy, he was a kind man. He was a good man. People often mistake you for Tony Robbins. No. Deny. But in October, when I went to ...

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- Barry Diller knows your weaknesses. He knows how to intimidate you, if he wants to, or charm you, if he chooses. Because he is a taskmaster and a visionary and a billionaire, people in Hollywood and Silicon Valley pay close attention when he speaks. He has so many vests ...
Maybe President Trump, a determined critic of the Iraq war, is so bewitched by John Bolton's mustache that he's missed Mr. Bolton's undying support for the invasion.CreditAlex Wong/Getty Images. Image Maureen Dowd. By Maureen Dowd. March 24, 2018. WASHINGTON -- It's unnerving covering ...
Maureen Dowd interviewed Hollywood mogul Barry Diller for a story that ran in the New York Times Style section this weekend under the provocative headline "All Men Are Guilty." But despite the headline (a Diller quote), this is not a conversation about a man coming to grips with sexual harassment.
I ran into Harvey Weinstein at the Vanity Fair Oscar party last year. He should have been in his element, dominating and manipulating the Oscars, using the statuettes as a golden lure for young actresses, swanning around as a rare avatar of good taste and champion of roles for older women in an industry ...
On her way to work one morning, down the path along the lake, a tenderhearted woman saw a rich, coldhearted, frozen snake. His tangerine skin was all caked with make-up and his bald spot was frosted with the dew. “Poor thing,” she cried, “I'll take you in, and I'll take care of you.” “Take me in, oh tender ...

In conversations, he ventured that, as president, he might be able to resolve two of the most thorny and tragic dilemmas: finding peace in the Mideast and reaching a sensible compromise on guns.

The first lady will never be as brilliant at trolling as her husband. He is an idiot-savant who plays in the roiling ocean of Twitter as naturally as a blubbery-necked sea lion. Only Donald Trump, a Rat Pack relic who spurred the reckoning with his transgressions toward women, could send out a tweet taking ...
The visitor murmured to his friend, “Probably Maureen Dowd.” The co-proprietor showed the two guests to a small changing room lined with wooden lockers, and handed them each a pair of white terry-cloth slippers. A horizontal wall mirror hung, cruelly, at waist level. Once undressed, the guests gathered the courage to ...
I've also listed two editorials chosen by the editorial board; the most-read editorial; and the 10 most-read op-eds. As you'll notice, that top 10 list is dominated by Trump and the #metoo movement. Favorite (followed by most-read) columns: - Maureen Dowd: “Jimmy Carter Lusts for a Trump Posting”.
Re “Bringing Down Our Monsters,” by Maureen Dowd (column, Dec. 17): We are finally heading toward equity in the workplace, not because women are becoming more comfortable but because men are getting uncomfortable. Men are grappling with new realities, realizing that they need to think carefully ...
Until Hollywood values women and men equally, it will remain 'fertile ground for predators' as Salma Hayek rightly said, writes Maureen Dowd. Jaws drop and drop and drop. Until it seems it will never stop. You would think we would get numb at some point. But no. There are just too many numbskulls.
You would think we would get numb at some point. But no. There are just too many numbskulls. We cannot refresh our browsers fast enough to see the latest stupefactions on sexual violations and Trump violations — which dovetail in a surreal way. Every day, TV anchors breathlessly report some bizarre ...
When Sheila Nevins first started working in television in the 1970s, she thought “being touched by a man inappropriately was part of the rules of the game.” “I had no way of knowing,” says the profane, glamorous and gloriously inappropriate 78-year-old president of HBO Documentary Films over a chopped ...
Back in 1991, during the incendiary Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings, the salty Republican senator from Wyoming was very concerned at the idea that a woman would wait many years after a disturbing encounter and then ″come out of the night like a missile and destroy a man.″. It has been a rough ...
WASHINGTON — Would the war against preying on women be blazing so fiercely had Hillary Clinton been elected? When I interviewed women in Hollywood about the ugly Harvey Weinstein revelations in The Times and The New Yorker, they told me that feelings of frustration and disgust at having an ...
He described News Corp.'s Murdoch as a “coldhearted realist” who looked forward to “a media business full of his competing children,” and he said New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd was an “angry” writer whose tone might be explained by anger at “her own women-who-love-too-much-weakness.
But a recent opinion column in Texas State University's main newspaper damned me for a different reason. I'm abominable because I'm white. Maureen Dowd: It took far too long, but something finally snapped with women. Why had we allowed ourselves to think of abusive behavior as the norm for so long?
WASHINGTON — Alan Simpson was appalled by the injustice of it all. Back in 1991, during the incendiary Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings, the salty Republican senator from Wyoming was very concerned at the idea that a woman would wait many years after a disturbing encounter and then “come out ...

WASHINGTON — Wherever I go, people ask me the same question: "How can he?" How can Kevin support President Donald Trump? Why isn't he bothered by the things others find appalling and frightening? Thanksgiving weekend is here, so it's time for my Republican brother to share his thoughts:.
First, though, I wanted to mention how impressed I was by three recent columns by our colleagues Maureen Dowd, Ross Douthat and Michelle ...
