Our weekly service: Translating Tina Brown.


Tina-speakWhat it means
On the night of Sept. 10, 2001, I was seated next to the runway between Trump and Monica Lewinsky watching the glitzy Marc Jacobs show at the height of Fashion Week.I used to be sort of famous.
Twenty-four hours later the world had gone dark. Razzle-dazzle was dead. Hype was over.Thank God the editors at the Post haven't figured this out.
Give us "Elf"! Give us "The Bachelor"! Let's go shopping!I have a mild case of Tourette's.
[Trump is] the phallic narcissist supreme. . .Penis!
[T]he guy the feminist revolution wanted to make extinct but who just keeps lumbering forward like a randy rhinoPenis!
One of the surprising charms of "The Apprentice" is watching his small, self-admiring mouth pucker judiciously. . .I am easily charmed. (Also: Penis!)
He is a state-of-the-art air-rights pilot, a maestro of zoning-board lobbying, a generalissimo of devilish legal loopholes.Someone should probably take away my thesaurus.

Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
