Trump's Clueless Abdication of Presidential ResponsibilityQuicklink submitted By Susan Lee Schwartz Permalink
As the Wall Street Journal’s editorial page pointed out on Tuesday, Trump “somehow seems to believe that his outsize personality and social-media following make him larger than the Presidency,” but if he doesn’t change his approach the “brutal realities of Washington politics” will “destroy” him.Trump is what he is: a self-obsessed carnival barker with authoritarian instincts and little grasp of policy or history. In the long run, his unwillingness (or inability) to change strategy means he is unlikely to go down in history as a transformative figure but, rather, one who exploited a unique set of conditions to win the Presidency. In the short run, Trump’s vacuousness means he has nothing to offer except a laughable effort to blame the Democrats for what has happened."
