每日新闻快报 - 民粹总统 The Daily Update - Populist presidents

“你被解雇了”,这句经典台词很多美国人都非常熟悉,它正是现任总统特朗普在之前主持的真人秀节目中的口头禅。讽刺的是,昨天联邦调查局局长詹姆斯·科米也听到了特朗普在电视上用这句话解雇了自己。这为满是总统丑闻和政治不安的全球日常新闻又填了一笔。

上周日马克龙当选法国总统,尽管与对手国民阵线党相比,他所在的“前进!”党只创建了13个月,这反映了法国传统政治的萎靡不振。

周一,巴西对前总统卢拉展开了新一轮审判,巴西继续同国内腐败问题做斗争,也显示了继任总统特梅尔改革所面临的惰性。

在周二韩国总统大选中,压倒性选票投给了韩国民主党文在寅,支持更换领导班子方向。对一位前难民和人权律师寄予了如此大的支持,显示了对前总统朴槿惠政府失败与腐败的失望。

形成对比的是,美国自从去年11月投票支持非正统,在民粹改革运动中不断前行。特朗普已经解雇了首席检察官和国家安全顾问,最近又刚解雇了联邦调查局局长科米。解雇科米的理由是未能成功处理希拉里邮件丑闻,但考虑到几天前刚确定科米会参加参议院情报委员会,这个决定不禁让人起猜想。因为如果这是原因,特朗普已经上任了三个月,还不算加入总统选举团的那两个月,为什么要一直等到现在才做决定?

特朗普对一个帮助自己赢得更多选票的人大义灭亲,似乎不太合适,但用去年他自己的话,这是“做对的事”。参议员蒂姆·凯恩说,“解雇科米显示出特朗普政府对俄罗斯调查有多么害怕”,这反映了人们对这种敏感而自私行为的广泛担忧。对该职位的任何新提名都可能有利于特朗普:如果获得参议院同意,则会有助于他;得不到确认,则会妨碍调查的继续进行。密西根州众议员John Conyers说,“特朗普总统今天的做法完全清除了对俄罗斯干预大选独立调查的迹象,把我们的国家置于宪法危机的边缘。”政客新闻网Politico说,“特朗普总统是继水门事件以来,第一位在调查其内阁潜在不当行为期间解雇涉事官员的总统”,这与人们已经习惯的罕见地无丑闻的上一届政府,形成鲜明对比。

让我们继续关注这场真实的领导班子情景剧在本周会有怎样的剧情发展:美国很可能会再上演老梗。另外,好事媒体的另一个宠儿——菲律宾总统杜特蒂最近有点太安静。
