The unique legal problem presented by a know-nothing president

But what happens when the President of the United States is a short-fingered reality show host with little interest in informing himself? What if we have a president who’s spending his intelligence briefings tweeting about his daughter’s clothing line? What if his policies are rooted less in real concerns about national security and more in a desire to punish people of certain faiths?

What if the president’s determinations are no better informed than your Fox News-watching uncle’s rants?

It’s interesting that DT bashes the press and talk shows at every opportunity and yet, according to this, :

Last Sunday, the New York Times reported that Trump is “cloistered in the White House” and watches cable news to try and figure out what’s happening in the world.

“For a sense of what is happening outside, he watches cable, both at night and during the day — too much in the eyes of some aides — often offering a bitter play-by-play of critics like CNN’s Don Lemon,” the Times reported.
