33. Funny how the fake legend his people crafted about him

is that he's a notorious micromanager, surrounds himself with the best people, then demands results from them.

He stays on them, always knows exactly what phase they're in, on the projects he's assigned to them. He's constantly looking over their shoulders, constantly calling them into his office and onto the carpet to pump them for info about the smallest details of the tasks he assigned to them, from behind his big desk.

He does this because he's the only one with the complete picture, the only one with all the info, the only one with the detailed knowledge and overview of the whole project, and all the other projects the organization has going on. He knows it all about everything, and keeps all the details in his head and at his fingertips.

And if he doesn't like the answers he's getting from them about the little middle manager subordinate flunky decisions they make on his behalf, he fires them.

That's the whole point of his shitty little reality tv show, that he's so proud of. The constant demand for high-stakes status reports exemplifies the majesty, shrewdness, intelligence, deep desire for knowledge, and supreme tactical genius that is "trump".

He's in charge, knows everything, demands status report details on every minor decision, and the underling who fails gets fired.

The buck always stops at the underlings.



It's funny, because the o.p. shows he's the typically lazy assed, proudly ignorant, do-nothing, layabout, dilettante kind of repug leader they've given us so often before. Another romney, li'l bush, ronnie raygun style leader.

Smugly stupid. Reading working and learning are for the underlings, it's his job to get adulation and be treated like an emporor, he sits in the hive like a termite queen getting fed and pampered, the most important being in the hive's existence.

Except the termite leader actually serves a function for her hive.

He's a draft dodging chicken hawk playing with our troops' lives, and the safety and future of the nation. And remember, keep in mind, when things go wrong, the buck always stops with the underlings.

He receives all of his briefings from Russia so why does he need American intel? LonePirate Nov 2016 #1
