So You Think You Can President: Presidenting Is Hard Edition

I'm kinda inclined not to make fun of this, because it's honest and straightforward, and involves an admission of error. OTOH, it's irresponsible to take on the presidency when you're in no way, shape or form qualified for the job. So there's that.

My impression is he had no clue what the job even entailed, and expended no effort to learn.

It's an utter condemnation. And yes, I understand essentially no President comes into the office knowing how difficult it is. But they should be aware of this: it's a 'known unknown.' There's no excuse for being surprised by and resentful of the difficulty.

Yeah, IMO several people I know would make much, much less-terrible Presidents than Trump...but they're all intelligent / wise / knowledgeable enough to know that they have no business anywhere near the office.

The depths of cluelessness required for someone like Trump to think he has any business there seem unfathomable.

Dude has bullshitted his way through life, to the extent that he doesn't even seem to understand that some things require actual smarts / skill / knowledge, and aren't mere bloviating contests.
