'Incoherent' President Trump

President Trump is consistently incomprehensible, confusing, and unclear for many reasons:

  1. He didn't do his homework for the job and is shooting from the hip.
  2. He doesn't appreciate the necessity of his having a command of details. It is from his precise direction that laws are created and amended.
  3. He is an emotional firebrand who comes off as being mentally unstable.

What else is there?

There is nothing he can do to mitigate the fact that he is unfit for the job.

Donald Trump represents an enormous economic and national security risk. His actions are undermining the integrity of the U.S. government and Constitution with the approval of the Republican Congress. It is a one-party monopoly headed for disaster.

WASHINGTON -- What happens when there's a crisis? 
When, not if, because that is the nature of the presidency: Bad things happen -- often early on, sometimes anticipated, sometimes out of nowhere. Consider the historical roster: Somali pirates holding an American captain hostage (Barack Obama's administration), the Chinese forcing down a Navy aircraft and detaining its crew (George W. Bush), a siege and raid gone bad at a cult complex in Waco, Texas (Bill Clinton). 
For a new president, April is the cruelest month; add John F. Kennedy's Bay of Pigs fiasco to that litany of springtime woes. An unseasoned new president and a wobbly team still learning how to work the system and work together are going to be more susceptible to blunders than later on. 
But a crisis under President Trump -- a real crisis, not the seemingly endless series of self-inflicted wounds that have scarred the new administration -- poses a far scarier situation than with the usual fledgling presidency. Trump's unforced errors have implications and ripple effects for when the real problems inevitably arrive."
