Kevin Drum on the president:

Let's roll the tape. Trump is vain. He's peculiarly unwilling to learn anything new. He feels endlessly persecuted. His attention span can be measured in minutes. He's paranoid over the slightest sign of disloyalty. He is vengeful. He demands constant attention. He makes up preposterous fictions to sustain his worldview and shield his ego from the slings and arrows of reality. He desperately wants to be liked by everyone. He's domineering. His personal relationships are almost entirely transactional. He never laughs. He can't stand people poking fun at him. He's often unable to control his emotional outbursts...

Otherwise, he's well qualified to be President of the United States.

But Drum left out his most salient characteristic: stupidity.

his budget includes transportation and EPA cuts that seriously effect the sfmta and plan Bay Area. So I'll deal with his stupidity for now. Historically there has always been a benifit to owning a donkey.

I don't know any history that shows having a donkey in charge provides any benefit to the people of that country.

What about cruelty? His casual false promises about how great whatever Republican plan replaced Obamacare are remarkably callous, given the reality of that plan. That he seems undisturbed by that lie and the effects of the plan he now supports are shocking.
