Chris Core’s naughty and nice list for 2018

Donald Trump
Naughty: Donald Trump. He still doesn’t seem to understand the presidency. Governing by insult and Twitter is simply juvenile. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci) (AP/Evan Vucci)

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman adjusts his robe as leaders gather for the group at the G20 Leader's Summit at the Costa Salguero Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Friday, Nov. 30, 2018. The prince is a controversial figure at the summit, due to the killing of a dissident Saudi journalist in the country's Istanbul consulate. Saudi Arabia denies that bin Salman ordered the killing, but U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded the opposite. (AP Photo/Ricardo Mazalan)
Naughty: Saudi Arabia. Killing an American journalist, cutting him into small pieces, lying about it, then repeatedly changing stories. Let them keep their stinking oil! (AP Photo/Ricardo Mazalan) (AP/Ricardo Mazalan)
Amazon chose to place half of its second headquarters in Arlington's Crystal City. Why it chose that location is due to a number of factors. (WTOP/Megan Cloherty)
Nice: Amazon. We didn’t get the whole pie of HQ2, but it’s nice for Northern Virginia to get a generous slice. Thanks, Jeff! (WTOP/Megan Cloherty) (WTOP/Megan Cloherty)
Tyrrell Pigrome
Naughty: The University of Maryland. If there was a way to screw up the school’s reputation any more than it already is, I can’t imagine it. The football coach is fired. Wait, no he’s not. Whoops, yes he is.  Geeesh. (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall, File) (AP/Charlie Neibergall)

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith (11) lays on the ground as teammate Adrian Peterson, right, holds his hand after an injury during the second half of an NFL football game against the Houston Texans, Sunday, Nov. 18, 2018 in Landover, Md. Smith broke his right tibia and fibula on a sack by Texans' Kareem Jackson. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)
Naughty: The Redskins. So, let’s see. They sign an aging quarterback who breaks his leg halfway through the season, and whose career may be over. Then the backup quarterback’s leg is broken. Oh, plus, they sign a linebacker who is a known abuser of women. And the name of the team is still a ridiculous slur. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais) (AP/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)

An advocate and survivor of sexual abuse, looks at the photos of Catholic priests accused of sexual misconduct by victims during a news conference Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018, in Orange, Calif. Advocates for survivors of child sex abuse say they have compiled a list of 72 priests who served in the Southern California Diocese of Orange and who are accused of abusing kids. Lawyer Mike Reck on Thursday said that's many more than those reported by the Diocese and demanded greater transparency. The Diocese of Orange says the lawyers are trying to re-litigate old claims that the church takes any accusations of abuse "extraordinarily seriously." (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong)

A period of relative calm on Wall Street that led to a milestone-setting September for the stock market came to a sudden, screeching halt in October.

Nice: Uber. Getting drunks off the road, and a reliable, affordable alternative to an increasingly unreliable Metro. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File) (AP/Patrick Semansky)
