If he had surrounded himself with experts in their field and then listened to those experts, he might have become, at the least, a mediocre president. The problem is that he hires sycophants who know less than he does. When someone smarter tries to tell him anything, he ignores them because of his short attention span.
I had to turn NPR off yesterday after they did yet another story/interview of some more idiotic Trumpites in Colorado. One of the old guys they interviewed went on about how Trump’s a fighter and understands manufacturing, and he’s fighting for us, blah blah blah. I wanted to reach through the radio and slap him upside the head.
