Trump's New Flow of Information

September 15, 2017 at 7:09 am EDT By Taegan Goddard

Jonathan Swan: “The dramatically different information Trump receives daily under the leadership of Chief of Staff John Kelly is an under-looked factor in Trump’s decision to double down on his partnership with the Democratic leaders.”

“Trump gets mostly positive feedback for his turn towards bipartisanship. He watches cable news in the morning, and even ‘Fox and Friends’ finds a way to praise his deal with the Democrats. He reads his morning news clips and briefing materials, which are managed by Staff Secretary Rob Porter, under the guidance of Kelly. And during the day it’s not possible for a staff member to sneak a story onto Trump’s desk that might rile him up and turn him in a wildly different direction in an instant.”

“Staff who oppose the moderate immigration turn no longer have unfettered access to Trump, and nor do allies on the outside who, in the first six months of the administration, used to send text messages to Trump’s bodyguard Keith Schiller, and often receive a snappy callback from the president. Kelly now has real control over the most important input: the flow of human and paper advice into the Oval Office. For a man as obsessed about his self image as Trump, a new flow of inputs can make the world of difference.”

2. Has the mind of a child who is really really spoiled and mean.

Has to be treated accordingly, like a child.

Conversely, the person who is supposed to be there, who won the election, is one of the most qualified human beings alive if not the most.

So, white man who is not qualified to be night shift manager at your local 711 or woman who is more qualified than any living being on the planet?

Easy, right? Have to go with the man.

If this asshole ran a 711 store, people would quit daily, he could not keep the doors open. Imagine how people would react to someone as childish, dismissive as he is, someone who pits everybody against each other.
