    This is going to be harder than Donald Trump expected

    By Gregory Krieg, CNN

    Much of the emerging image of dysfunction has been painted by Trump's own staff. The calls are coming from inside the White House -- and they are going to reporters, who have been flooded with accounts of a frenetic and angry president, who bounces from political frustration to personal grudge -- often in his bathrobe, according to a New York Times account disputed by the White House -- in the space of a few minutes.

    Now, with the foot soldiers of his Republican majority under siege in their home districts, the blustering outsider who chalked up his predecessors' failures to their lack of will or guile, is seeing his own challenged daily.

    snip

    In the private dealings of his family business, Trump's decision-making went unquestioned -- at least publicly. But the presidency is ruled by a different calculus, one its new resident, three weeks into his four year term, is struggling to command.

    He really should have given this some more thought before he deciding to run.

    Oh, wait...

    I said a while ago. 45 is used to being the boss. He knows little about leadership.

    Or American history, or the Constitution of the United States, or governing, or the legal system, or ....

    He does seem to know a lot about tax loopholes, however.

    Is that a 20/20 viewpoint? Of course we all know you are full of shit. You just enjoy Trump fucking things up, it's common for people who are mental midgets.

    It's trolling or insanity.
