Trump: The ‘clueless child’

Donald Trump and his peers.

President Donald Trump, they say, is a “clueless child.”

“They” are not Democrats or other supporters of Hillary Clinton.  They are not one of the American voters who gave Clinton a 2.9 million edge in the popular vote last November.

They are White House insiders, Trump’s people, and Republicans who now realize the pig in the poke they supported in the 2016 Presidential election is an uninformed, untrained and undisciplined danger to the future of America.

Writes Chris Cillizza of The Washington Post:

All White Houses leak. Sometimes the leaks are big, sometimes small. But there are always people willing to talk to reporters about the “real” story or about why the chief executive made a mistake in regard to some decision he made.

That said, I’ve never seen so much leaking so quickly — and with such disdain for the president — as I have in the first six days of Donald Trump’s presidency.

Both the Post and The New York Times find White House sources privately admitting their frustrations about Trump and his erratic actions in the first days of his presidency.

Sources for Capitol Hill Blue tell us the same.

Trump aides admit they would like to take away his telephone and Twitter access.  They say the new President has “a fixation” with illusionary voter fraud and “an obsession” with proving his inauguration crowd was much larger than photos prove was not.

He acts on often irrational impulse, demanding creation of an illusion already disproven by facts and an aggressive media that has been turned by his grandiose and exaggerated claims.

A man who reads little, Trump spends too time, aides admit, watching partisan cable television shows, listening to hard core advisors like former Bretbart CEO Steve Bannon and angered by aides who call him a “feckless child in need of guidance.”

“He shouts, berates and cusses a lot,” says one source.

“Trump doesn’t seem like the type who will enjoy his advisors talking about him like he’s a child to The New York Times for long,” tweets Tim Miller, former campaign spokesman for Jeb Bush.

The day after his inauguration, when media reported relatively low turnout for his swearing in and other inaugural activities, Trump ordered acting National Park Service Director Michael T. Reynolds to come up with photos that could prove larger crowds.

Trump was also pissed over a Twitter retweet that showed side by side photos that showed his smaller crowd against the record 1.8 million that attended Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2009.

Reynolds forwarded additional photos but they could not show what Trump wanted: Photographic proof of a larger crowd that didn’t exist.  Trump, of course, was not happy, and his new administration ordered the Department of the Interior to shut down Twitter platforms immediately and “until further notice.”

The directive was lifted a day later but the message was clear to all: Don’t embarrass the new President with truth.

“He’s like a kindergarten school kid who cries in a tantrum until someone gives him what he wants,” says a long-time Interior employee who, understandably, will not speak on the record.

Presidential spokesman Sean Spicer claims White House officials did not dictate any agency to impose new restrictions on public communications.

This, of course, is the same Sean Spicer who on the Saturday after the inauguration, claimed: “This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe.”

Photos proved otherwise for in-person attendance and Nielsen ratings showed broadcast audiences ranked seventh in televised Presidential inaugurations.

Facts, however, do not matter to the clueless child who sits behind the big desk in the Oval Office of 1600 Pennsylvania in Washington.

  1. This article can also apply to every president and politician who ever lived. Rich people are in their own world, away from the masses. Have you ever wondered why your boss seems clueless?

    The real question is: Who will actually try to help the country more? In the years that the last president took office, the deficit has increased to record breaking highs.

    Also the loss of American jobs has continued to rise since the creation of NAFTA in 1994. The other current presidential candidate also wanted to pass yet another destructive agreement: TPP, which would lower American quality of life significantly.

    But Trump does not want the TPP, and will renegotiate NAFTA. This will help bring jobs back to America. And that is why he was elected.

    Please keep in mind that that this “child” is a billionaire, and he has disrupted his entire family to help put America back on track to recovery. That is quite a sacrifice.

    Perhaps risky policies will be needed to help our country. And it may take a novice to see the obvious corruption that has become the single largest cancer that has been eating away at our entire world for decades.

    • This is a President who has said he will decrease taxes, increase military spending, and not touch SS/Medicare. That is hardly a combination that will decrease a deficit.

      Also, it is hard to be impressed with an alleged billionaire that has routinely filed bankruptcy, has stiffed creditors and contractors, and didn’t pay taxes in 20 years. Whatever he has i he got with other people’s money.

    • Sorry Lance, you are dillusional. America wasn’t made great by being protectionist and cowering from competition, it was built on innovation and leadership. Having trump threaten various companies to keep a few jobs at home is a joke. Corporate greed, the same corporate greed that allows trump to become a billionaire, will make sure those companies bottom line will end up exactly where it would have if those jobs went away. Sorry America, you asked for it. Hopefully you’ll come to your senses and find a way to send this childlike buffoon packing. My 7 year old son shows more maturity than trump.

  2. He seems to live in an organizational culture of chaos, picking his decisions out of that mess. I wonder how many failures and lost opportunities his business career suffered as a result of this style/behavior? We only hear of the “billions” he has made, but just how effective has the business actually been? Is it a successful style? Can the country succeed with this style of management?

  3. This fool will end AMERICA being anything, he is and will always be a “what about me what about me ” induvidual , not everybody is going to like you, but you have to put yourself in other people’s shoes and feel what they feel and be humble enough to do what is right for them and everyone else, he does not respect the office of POTUS and DOES NOT deserve that title….i am just sayin

  4. Trump is obviously a person who lacks an ability or perhaps willingness to get differing perspectives. Perhaps he would learn from farmers, who do not just view a crop from the road but walk deep in the fields to get a total picture as to what is going on. Had he had that simple concept in his head, he might have understood that something that looks “bigly” from his angle at the podium could look drastically different from another.

    He could also do well to learn about and apply the concept of “keep your powder dry”.

    As to leaking, one would think this really isn’t news for people who were watching close. There were clearly leaks coming from inside the inner circle during the campaign.
