Rednecks increasingly embarrASSed by moron they elected. . . ~PIC~

(WashPost). . .According to the book ["Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by Michael Wolff], Walsh [Katie Walsh, then a deputy chief of staff] also observed that Trump had conflicting impulses and urges that required a lot of guesswork to translate into policy. Wolff quotes her as saying it was "like trying to figure out what a child wants."

In early October, after reports that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had called Trump a "moron," other senior advisers had "there-but-for-the-grace-of-God" moments, Wolff writes. Some had called Trump an "idiot," "dumb as s---" and a "dope," according to Wolff.

Wolff also writes that Trump "had little or no interest in the central Republican goal of repealing Obamacare," an effort that failed in dramatic fashion.

"An overweight seventy-year-old man with various physical phobias (for instance, he lied about his height to keep from having a body mass index that would label him as obese), he personally found health care and medical treatments of all kinds a distasteful subject. The details of the contested legislation were, to him, particularly boring.”

Before appointing Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court — widely viewed as one of his early successes — Trump wondered why the job wasn’t going to a friend and loyalist, Wolff writes. “In the Trump view, it was rather a waste to give the job to someone he didn’t even know."
