Trump Is Not Playing Chess

I did. This tweet has it right, except the Presidency is important, and whoever holds it commands attention, whether or not they are worthy of the office; or our attention.

The rest of that thread overthinks the situation. Trump is neither clever nor strategic. He thinks in units of minutes, and only cares about his adulation and avoiding responsibility. Of course he contradicts himself and can’t hold a policy in mind for 10 minutes.  He’s as stupid as he appears to be. He’s not cleverly manipulating anyone. He’s the President of the United States, and there’s nothing we can do about it until January 2020. And nothing we can do can make us comfortable with that.

Fact is, our President is a toddler with a shotgun.
