The left points to Hicks, Kushner, daily chaos as signs of a weak presidency

Will there ever be a break in the turmoil that surrounds Donald Trump? A roundup of editorials Friday doesn't offer much hope. 

Opinions from the left:

1. Hope Hicks told the truth about lying for Trump. Now she's gone. 

From columnist Dana Milbank: When a president lies, those around him are put into the position of lying for him.

2. Trump's presidency is not normal -- and it's not acceptable

From columnist Eugene Robinson: Do we even care anymore if the president learns basic facts about governing?

3. The root of White House chaos? A weak president

From The New York Times: We don’t have to look far to find the source of the daily drama that is the White House.
