Every Day of Trump's Presidency Is a New Fresh Hell

Speaking of the president who is utterly unprepared and has no idea what the fuck he's doing, these are the opening paragraphs of a piece for Reuters by Stephen J. Adler, Jeff Mason, and Steve Holland:
He misses driving, feels as if he is in a cocoon, and is surprised how hard his new job is.

[Donald] Trump on Thursday reflected on his first 100 days in office with a wistful look at his life before the White House.

"I loved my previous life. I had so many things going," Trump told Reuters in an interview. "This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier."
Rage. Seethe. Boil.

In fact, I am so tired of this dreck that I only have enough energy left to crawl into a giant cannon and fire myself directly into the sun so I don't have to hear any more of this shit!

As I have been saying over and over, like the brokenest of broken records that I am, the fact that Trump is an unprepared, incompetent disaster with no fixed principles is good news for those of us who don't want to see his domestic policy enacted, but bad news for everyone who needs a United States president to handle foreign policy with the preparedness, competency, and delicacy it requires.

To wit: The second iteration of the Republican's "healthcare" bill has been temporarily shelved, because they still can't get it done, although they're going to keep trying to get enough of their caucus on board to pass it. (So keep making those calls!)

But also: Trump said yesterday, "There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely. ...We'd love to solve things diplomatically but it's very difficult."

Remember what I just said yesterday? "We've got a sitting president who is a compulsive liar with a brittle ego, and whose only good press has been for bombing. ...[His administration seems to be saying]: We're going to try the diplomacy we have repeatedly said and keep saying was a failed policy, except we're going to do it much worse, so then when it fails, we can blame former presidents for forcing us to take military action we definitely totally for sure are so sad to take."

With every domestic policy failure comes an increased likelihood that the ratings-obsessed Trump will resort to the only thing that garners him favorable coverage: Military action.

Because governing is indeed very difficult, as he's finding out, and he is far too lazy and inept to bother to learn how to do it well. So instead he's just going to keep complaining about how hard his life is, and then instruct his military commanders to do things that make other people's lives infinitely worse.
