Kindergarten White House

July 26, 2018

It’s bad enough that the President thinks he can run the U.S. government as if it were his family business, but his principal aides are his daughter and son-in-law. Neither has ties to the conservative movement, nor even the GOP, but they are now committing to stay the course and assist Papa run the country.

This magnifies the errors of President Trump, who has difficulty reading and spends his time watching cable news, by bringing utter novices into important roles in the Trump White House.  For some reason, the President thinks his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, can resolve a crisis in the Middle East while he exacerbates tensions by moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Add to that a weakened White House Chief of Staff and a political novice from Fox News placed in charge of Communications of the Office of the President, and you can visualize where and how many crises this President will face before he seeks reelection in 2020.

I blame my conservative colleagues who thought that because Trump assured a conservative Supreme Court, we can let an incompetent run the country. I admit we faced a difficult choice, but the better part of valor was to stay home on election day in 2016 or write-in the name of your favorite Uncle.

The country and the GOP might have survived a Clinton Presidency, but I fear the GOP cannot survive a Trump Presidency and, if this President starts a war, the lives of American boys (and now girls) will be sacrificed. We lost 33,000 in Korea when the cumulative failures of FDR and Harry Truman took effect, another 50,000-plus in Vietnam under LBJ and Richard Nixon and more in Iraq under George W. Bush. All these were caused by decisions made by American Presidents much more knowledgeable than the Celebrity President running our government.
