Trump is Failing
11 January 2017 | Pago Pago, American Samoa
He has aligned himself with Putin and defended him against information provided by the US' own intelligence agencies on which Trump has cast aspersions and doubts because he doesn't like what they have to say.
He claims the election results were not affected but there is significant evidence outcomes were changed in one or two house races.
He has taken sides with a nominal foreign enemy against the American intelligence services, and, after realizing what he has done, feebly and stupidly tried to backtrack on his disparagements.
His new DOD pick, already at war with his new chief intelligence pick, is a naive conspiracy buff with no good handle on political reality.
I see Trump as being ego-centrically thinned-skinned and not up to the job which means when the going gets seriously tough for him, he will either have to grow up and into the job or he will quit and hand the reins to Pence. He didn't really much want the job to begin with.
