Remember during the 2016 Goat Rodeo how often Candidate Stupid changed campaign managers, usually just as soon as anyone started having any success in controlling him? Remember the gentle chiding of, “Just let Trump be Trump?”
What we are seeing this week is what happens when Trump is Trump.
- He said during the campaign he wanted tariffs, and boom! Now he announces tariffs.
- He wanted to bring reality teevee to the White House, and boom! Now he’s negotiating gun legislation with Congress on live teevee.
- He likes strongman politics, and boom! He’s advocating death penalty for drug dealers.
For all of known wife-beater Rob Porter’s faults, he kept the Orange Menace informed in a limited way, and that’s no longer happening. Whatever process John Kelly had in place is no longer working.
Comrade Stupid is unchained. Expect even more chaos.
