Once Trump is gone, back to normal business, GOP ready to govern! The awful stuff was only because of the bad orange man!

The only person on Earth who is more of a rank opportunist than Graham is Trump himself.

Holy horsefeathers this is incredible...and not in a good way.



Here’s one section, but read the whole thing. Rex is a moron and his view is slanted but I have to believe most of this is true:

FP: Was it difficult to get a message through to the president? How did you navigate that when the stakes were so high?

RT: His understanding of global events, his understanding of global history, his understanding of U.S. history was really limited. It’s really hard to have a conversation with someone who doesn’t even understand the concept for why we’re talking about this.

I had to constantly evaluate my last conversations with him—what seemed to resonate, what seemed to get across, what didn’t—and I would try different approaches with him. I used to go into meetings with a list of four to five things I needed to talk to him about, and I quickly learned that if I got to three, it was a home run, and I realized getting two that were meaningful was probably the best objective. So I began to adjust what I went into a meeting with and what I attempted to explain and describe, and then I started taking charts and pictures with me because I found that those seemed to hold his attention better. If I could put a photo or a picture in front of him or a map or a piece of paper that had two big bullet points on it, he would focus on that, and I could build on that. Just sitting and trying to have a conversation as you and I are having just doesn’t work.

Fortress DC, holy jeebus. If someone wants to cause a ruckus this weekend or during the inauguration, they’re going to have a bad day.

Him being ignorant is not the big thing, it's the unwillingness to take the job seriously that's what the above reflects to me. Trump never had an interest, nor does he still have any interest in being President, likes and craves the perks though "his" DOJ, DOD, Secret Service, etc. and attention.
