    New book portrays Trump as erratic, ‘at times dangerously uninformed’

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...85d_story.html

    “A Very Stable Genius” — a 417-page book named after Trump’s own declaration of his superior knowledge — is full of similarly vivid details from Trump’s tumultuous first three years as president, from his chaotic transition before taking office to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russia investigation and final report.

    “It’s just so unfair that American companies aren’t allowed to pay bribes to get business overseas,” Trump says, according to the book. “We’re going to change that.”

    The book, the duo writes in an author’s note, is based on hundreds of hours of interviews with more than 200 sources, corroborated, when possible, by calendars, diary entries, internal memos and even private video recordings.

    ————————————

    This book is a "must read" for all conservatives.

    That's not really the correct way to look at it. You don't want his flaws to become 'ok' and 'normal', you want them to be opposed and replaced.

    Well, his flaws are normal for him. But I agree, his antics and character should not be tolerated as a new norm for political leaders.

    Trump's okay in my book. Look how he's taken China and Iran both down a few pegs they're still trying to figure out what's hit them. Give him four more years and he'll have things pretty much ready for Pence to take over.

    trump supporters are nuts. China has been greatly helped by trump as they gain influence around the world, and have little challenge from the US to be the leader in the quantum computing, green energy, or AI industries, as the US continues to go into massive debt approaching $25 trillion in order to let the rich get more absurdly rich.

    Then it seems like Trump is helping China and is best pals with Putin and the US economy is going through the roof. What's not to like about the Trump presidency so far? He hasn't started any wars has he?

    I don't think they're nuts.

    A number of them have been deliberately mis-informed by politicians.
    These folks believe things like Killary gave away 20% of the USA's uranium to the Kremlin.

    Once you accept the lies these politician are telling them as a given, then rest of their conclusions make sense.
    I may be wrong.
