I kinda disagree. I think he was just trying to raise his profile and sell more stuff. He’s one lazy MF. His complete lack of any preoreparedness to assume the role supports that

When was the last time he was prepared for anything though? He treats the presidency just like any other "job" he's had in the past decade.

But he's super athletic.

How many times has President Donald Trump played golf while in office?

No reason it can't be both. The wants don't add up to a coherent...anything, but I can see him not thinking about that.

if you read fire and fury, a lot of it is dedicated to the fact that he didn't want/plan to win, and it makes sense given what a cluster drymount their campaign was as well as the first year in office. They absolutely did not plan to win and did not plan for his presidency. One of the take aways from the books position on that is that the dude has lived in his penthouse suite top floor of trump tower since the 80s. Every day he would take the elevator floor down one level to his full floor office. Not easy to uproot from your local/life of 30 plus something years and have to go to that "shithole" white house and actually have to try do some work...

Uranium One = Uranium ZERO

https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/08/politics ... index.html

The Democratic memo stated that Campbell did not back up Republican claims of a quid pro quo. He did not, for instance, recall anyone mentioning a $500,000 speaking fee for Bill Clinton in Moscow, one issue that Republicans have raised about the Uranium One matter.

Campbell stated that Tenex officials had bragged about "influence from Moscow" over the Clintons, but he did not tell the FBI about any statements involving attempts to influence the Clintons, according to the memo.

Kim Jong Un wants to be seen as Donald Trump’s equal. A meeting would do that.

It appears President Stupid didn't know what ever other president since the 50s knew.
