I Don't Need To Read 'Fire And Fury' To Know Trump Is A Degenerate Nutcase

"Hey, I never wanted to be President anyway! WAAAAAH!"

The new book ('Fire and Fury')  by Michael Wolff has the media world abuzz, and many outlets act as if this is the first time anyone ever heard of the half-cocked, insane chaos going on inside the Trump White House. Or that Trump, aka "Dotard",  possesses no more mental capacity than a half conscious idiot (or  as  media mogul Rupert Murdoch exclaimed after one phone call, "What a fucking idiot!" - reported in Wolff's  book).   Newly appointed deputy- chief of- staff  Katie Walsh, meanwhile,   introduced the meme that learning Dotard's  priorities was "like trying to find out what a child wants."  This was after she attempted to obtain a basic, three bullet point listing of Trump's priorities.

But none of this is news. Not really.  I'd been criticizing Trump's mental deficiencies and psychological imbalance in my blog posts since January, e.g..

 And now the big - really BIG thing we learned - is that Dotard never really thought he'd be president anyway - it was all for an attention getting lark. Neither did wife Melania, who broke into tears after the electoral college win  - which ought never to have happened had the electors done their damned jobs, see e.g.

It doesn't take a Mensan to figure out Melania clearly cried because she - like the other Trumpkins - knew the Dotard.....errr,....."the Donald", was not cut out for a real job and especially one so intense, hyper scrutinized and high profile as the President of the United States. One in which he'd be lashed mercilessly if he didn't live up to the sane and sober standards of previous office holders, like FDR, JFK and Barack Obama.

As one reads from the book adaptation in The New  York Magazine:

"Even though the numbers in a few key states had appeared to be changing to Trump’s advantage, neither Conway nor Trump himself nor his son-in-law, Jared Kushner — the effective head of the campaign — ­wavered in their certainty: Their unexpected adventure would soon be over. Not only would Trump not be president, almost everyone in the campaign agreed, he should probably not be. Conveniently, the former conviction meant nobody had to deal with the latter issue."

 The proof and evidence the Dotard ought not have been president was clear within weeks of his inauguration, and his many getaways to Mar-a-Lago or Bedminster. Why? Because the actual job of running the nation daunted him.  It is a job for which one needs all active brain neurons, and also keeping them working at full attention level. This Trump couldn't do, and so he wasn't even able to read a one page briefing or keep his mind on a meeting with staff or a head of state. Hence, the many references to him as an "idiot", "moron",  "imbecile" and on and on.

Recall also the guy had never really worked at a real job outside of owning his family branding business wherein he could order anyone to do his bidding. Oh, and  a real estate weasel and con man who used bankruptcy (of multiple casinos) to make more $$$ mostly at the expense of state governments.  The little bitch  even bawled later that the presidency had  turned out to be too much for him to deal with. Too many details, too much stuff to master for an extensive government bureaucracy.  Hence, his penchant for becoming a cable TV and tweet addict. See e.g.


Being president is harder than Donald Trump thought,” begins the article, neatly capturing the blithe, criminal ignorance that characterizes both Trump himself and the many dozens of millions of morons who thought he should be the leader of the free world. Yes, being the president is a harder job than Donald Trump would expect, because Donald Trump had never previously held an actual job, because actually, spending your inheritance on a succession of failed cons is not an actual job."

But hey, as I noted at the time this came out, Dotard could have called in his chips and just resigned if the job was too much for his feeble brain.   It would have saved his sorry ass family and him a lot of embarrassment and now - an investigation. I mean why NOT resign? All this loser does anyway is waste time tweeting and watching TV for nine hours a day - when he isn't hosting his little rich country club boys or playing golf with them at Bedminster or Mar-a-  Lago. On the taxpayer's dime.

Of course, his delusional followers, bootlickers, ass kissers and other assorted lackeys will insist he merely enjoys  "working holidays" To which I call BULL SHIT! There is little doubt, very little, that if you are incapable of putting a full day's work in your normal work environment, you will not do it once you leave to go to a spacious hacienda with golf course, hot tubs and fancy restaurants.

Many Trump groupies, for sure, will believe this book is simply a "fake news" hit job by author Wolfe.  They may not even believe Steve Bannon's quoted words that the meeting in Trump Tower of July last year - of Don Jr., Kushner and Manafort with a Russian lawyer- was "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".  They may even believe the Trumpites can shut the book down now with a "cease and desist" order - forgetting that any president is fair game as a public figure. If Trump didn't want the unwanted portrayals and attention he should have stayed in his two bit chiseler real estate and money laundering business.

But the Trumpie groupies seeking to dismiss the book accounts all err because Wolff's methodology was simply to let the White House staff and Dotard himself spill their guts to him.  He'd actually set up a little card table in a side hallway with a tape recorder to make sure he got the exact quotes, words from the players, and then....let it roll.   As one commentator on MSNBC put it in a very good analogy this morning:

"This wasn't like an artist doing his own painting here. This was like giving 20 brushes to twenty  people and letting them paint their own parts of the canvas."

So, in fact, the personal interjection of Wolff was at a minimum, i.e. not affecting the content other than summing up the gist of what all the various players said, and so on.  But you can judge for yourselves.
