From The New York Times

WASHINGTON — “When President Trump grows frustrated with advisers during meetings, which is not an uncommon occurrence, he sits back in his chair, crosses his arms and scowls. Often he erupts. “Freaking idiots!” he calls his aides. Except he uses a more pungent word than “freaking.”

For two years, Mr. Trump has waged war against his own government, convinced that people around him are fools. Angry that they resist his wishes, uninterested in the details of their briefings, he becomes especially agitated when they tell him he does not have the power to do what he wants, which makes him suspicious that they are secretly undermining him.”


That pattern cannot be described as “emerging”.

Anyone paying attention knows that this is just the way donnie is and has always been and always will be.

Just for – a few – examples:

The accretive and cumulative foreign policy and world relationship wisdom and expertise of Wilson, FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy and every president since Kennedy are no match for donnie’s self- vaunted “gut”.

The judicial system of the United States is his enemy because it restrains that “gut” as it attempts to single handedly run the country ad hoc and fast and loose.

Any news not from Fox is fake.

Any “fact” is either derived from “fake” news or is negotiable and transmogrifiable to an alternate Fox Form.

He has shut down the government because Democrats won’t vote like his republican lackeys.

He thinks that he should be president for life.

I guess “that’s” enough.


I find that “enough” to be too much.

I don’t think that 330 million of us can afford to just grit our teeth and hope that we somehow can muddle through.

We are getting down to where this is too serious to leave to Stephen Colbert.
