Play Golf and Screw Porn Stars

Cody Fenwick, writing in Salon, says, Donald Trump still doesn’t really know how to be president.”

Sigh.

Are we just now figuring this out? I mean he really didn’t want to be president back when he was running. He wanted $300 million from a building project in Moscow, not having to deal with all the bullshit a President has to do. He wants to play golf and screw porn stars.

Fenwick writes:

Trump just doesn’t understand his role as president. He thinks he can bully those around him into getting his way by sheer force of will — a strategy that, along with the con man’s toolbox, may have served him well in Manhattan real estate. But as president, he actually has a constitutional duty to enforce the law whether he likes it or not.

He doesn’t care about his duties. He wants to play golf and screw porn stars.

Fenwick ends his piece thusly:

Mostly, this is a sign of weakness. The courts and Congress can stop him from going too far. But it’s also a real danger for the country as it exposes Trump’s authoritarian streak, hinted at in his admiration for dictators abroad who rule through violence. Right now, the institutional guardrails seem strong enough to contain his most unlawful acts. He’ll keep trying, though, and it’s impossible to predict where this road will take us.

Come. On. I know where we are going. We will be talking ad nauseam about how unfit, uncaring, unwell, unpopular, and unusual this presidency is until he leaves the office. Hopefully, we will have a country afterwards.
