    It's a big reason why IMO he needs to be impeached. He's never transitioned from corrupt owner of a business where he's the literal dictator of his fiefdom and what he says must be done in a world where corruption is fine, to POTUS.

    Sometimes he seems genuinely confused that's it's not a one man show. His admiration of dictators is real, as is his contempt for laws, or congress, or the courts, that constrain him in any way.

    It's a concern I had the moment the arguments that him being a businessman meant he was automatically qualified for POTUS. I can see the shared skill sets if a businessperson managed a corporation where their ability to manage complex group dynamics was really tested and had proven success. Trump doesn't have that level of experience since his businesses haven't been structured that way. All of this is evident in the way he communicates and behaves in terms of policy implementation.

    "Everybody but Trump did it" is laughable on its face.

    Rudy might as well get used to bus tire tracks on his noggin, that's what the MO of our sociopathic president.

    Republicans Set Up 3 Fall Guys for Trump

    November 7, 2019 at 9:48 pm EST By Taegan Goddard 107 Comments

    “House Republicans’ latest plan to shield President Trump from impeachment is to focus on at least three deputies — Ambassador Gordon Sondland, Rudy Giuliani, and possibly acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney — who they say could have acted on their own to influence Ukraine policy,” the Washington Post reports.

    “All three occupy a special place in the Ukraine narrative as the people in most direct contact with Trump. As Republicans argue that most of the testimony against Trump is based on faulty secondhand information, they are sowing doubts about whether Sondland, Giuliani and Mulvaney were actually representing the president or freelancing to pursue their own agendas. The GOP is effectively offering up the three to be fall guys.”
