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?

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.
