Trump Aides: "He's Clueless"
Trump vexed by challenges, scale of government - POLITICO
Being president is harder than Donald Trump thought, according to aides and allies who say that he’s growing increasingly frustrated with the challenges of running the massive federal bureaucracy.
In interviews, nearly two dozen people who’ve spent time with Trump in the three weeks since his inauguration said that his mood has careened between surprise and anger as he’s faced the predictable realities of governing, from congressional delays over his cabinet nominations and legal fights holding up his aggressive initiatives to staff in-fighting and leaks.
The administration’s rocky opening days have been a setback for a president who, as a billionaire businessman, sold himself to voters as being uniquely qualified to fix what ailed the nation. Yet it has become apparent, say those close to the president, most of whom requested anonymity to describe the inner workings of the White House, that the transition from overseeing a family business to running the country has been tough on him.
Trump often asks simple questions about policies, proposals and personnel. And, when discussions get bogged down in details, the president has been known to quickly change the subject — to "seem in control at all times," one senior government official said — or direct questions about details to his chief strategist Steve Bannon, his son-in-law Jared Kushner or House Speaker Paul Ryan. Trump has privately expressed disbelief over the ability of judges, bureaucrats or lawmakers to delay — or even stop — him from filling positions and implementing policies.

Why do you keep beating a Dead Horse ??
We ,all,knew he was an unscrupulous businessman that would use any means, legal or illegal to achieve his goals.
I'm sure, when he announced his candidacy, in his mind, was just to piss off the establishment and NEVER thought he had a chance in hell.
But when the Media and Late Night Clowns made fun of him and laughed and laughed, he made it his business to WIN, proly, knowing , all along, he didn't know $H!T about matters of State, or anything political, for that matter.
If the Democrats had had a candidate other than "Crooked Hillary", as they say, All of this would be Academic..

You just admitted that you voted for someone "we all knew" to be a crook, a liar, an ignoramus, and an incompetent.
You voted against "Crooked Hillary", who has been investigated for 35 years with never an indictment, much less a conviction; who has been a lawyer, a Senator, and a Secretary of State, as well as a close associate of a President; who has run a real charitable foundation, funding billions of dollars of aid to impoverished children, rather than a sham "foundation" whose main purpose seems to have been to glorify one person with other people's gifts; and who is in bed with her husband rather than Vladimir Putin.
Why? To "piss off the establishment".
If you are representative of the American voter, we're truly [deleted].

This is groundbreaking.
Yes, perhaps if Democrats had found the candidate who was 11x more qualified than Trump instead of the person who was only 10x more qualified than Trump, this hypothetical candidate might have won. But when the electorate is filled with individuals who are think a massacre that never actually happened is a good reason for a travel ban, it's hard to look back and try to predict what they would have done.THE DONALD FOR AMERICA

If you think, as many do, that the election was about who people were voting against, we should all be disturbed that more people didn't vote against Donald Trump. What more could Hillary and the Democrats have done to underscore what an unqualified danger the guy is? He was his own walking anti-Trump commercial and people lapped it up, almost like kids in a playground laughing at some stupid sideshow.
I think an electorate also becomes increasingly unpredictable when people are just... uninformed idiots. And they are more uninformed than ever! When you have voters screaming about how they need Obamacare rid from their lives, but the precious ACA must be upheld because it is helping them, how are political parties supposed to deal with that? And what would a better candidate on the D side have done to remedy that torrent of disinformation and ignorance?THE DONALD FOR AMERICA

LOL, by your ludicrous definition you are an "unconvicted felon." AFAIK, everyone here is.
Trump, on the other hand, settled a lawsuit with the state of New York for more than 20 million dollars for defrauding students.
Don't say there "wasn't a choice." There was, and you made a piss-poor decision.

He had His day in court and paid his penance.
Let's get Hillary in the "Witness" box and let same judge who ruled on Trumps "Ban" preside over her crimes.

A UN weapons inspector examines an Iraqi factory in 2002.
In 1990, before the Persian Gulf War, Iraq had stockpiled 550 short tons (500 t) of yellowcake uranium at the Tuwaitha nuclear complex about 20 kilometres (12 mi) south of Baghdad. In late February 2002, the CIA sent former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson to investigate reports (later found to be forgeries) that Iraq was attempting to purchase additional yellowcake from Niger. Wilson returned and informed the CIA that reports of yellowcake sales to Iraq were "unequivocally wrong." The Bush administration, however, continued to allege Iraq's attempts to obtain additional yellowcake were a justification for military action, most prominently in the January 2003, State of the Union address, in which President Bush declared that Iraq had sought uranium, citing British intelligence sources.
In response, Wilson wrote a critical New York Times op-ed piece in June 2003 stating that he had personally investigated claims of yellowcake purchases and believed them to be fraudulent.
"yellowcake sales to Iraq were "unequivocally wrong."

Bush isn't in charge, child. What's Trump doing right now to improve the VA? Giving them more money? Writing an executive order that lets them see a doctor outside the VA system at no charge? Going on television and pleading with Congress to increase funding?
No, he's whining on Twitter and writing terrible EOs that don't withstand legal scrutiny at a lower court level. And he's killing women and children. And Navy SEALs.
What Bush did was despicable. But it's equally as disgusting to see people who need help and say "no." If Trump refuses to help veterans, then he is utterly despicable.

We are learning today that everything that HRC was saying during the campaign was true.
