"There is a profound but predictable obstacle blocking Trump’s legislative agenda: His own incompetence.The country may well be saved from some of Trump’s most draconian impulses by some of Trump’s most pronounced flaws: his lack of seriousness, his aversion to tedium and his gnat-like attention span. It is possible that part of the reason Trump never developed many of his policies was because neither he nor anyone else thought in a million years that he would win. But another explanation is that Trump simply lacks the capacity for complex thought. He is an instinctual creature, living on a steady diet of TV, Twitter and turpitude. There is no appetite for the intellectual. There is no desire for depth. There is no tolerance for truth. Yes, folks, we have traded “the buck stops here” leadership for Trump’s “I’m not going to own it” cowardice."
