The exchange turned out to be an unusually vivid window into the almost kingly power that Trump sees himself as holding, and which he has begun describing with increasing bluntness. The scene was recounted by a source in the room and confirmed by another. The White House didn’t dispute the story.

      “Chief, chief,” Trump continued, addressing one of the tribal leaders, “what are they going to do? Once you get it out of the ground are they going to make you put it back in there? I mean, once it’s out of the ground it can’t go back in there. You’ve just got to do it. I’m telling you, chief, you’ve just got to do it.”

  1. This … from the article … This impatient and improvisational billionaire — who spent a lifetime cutting deals, grabbing what he wanted, and steamrolling anybody in his path as the boss of his own company — has no interest in adapting to the ways of Washington. It wasn’t just campaign rhetoric; Trump still really believes, even after the humiliating failure to repeal Obamacare, that he can bend this city to his will.

    Sums it up to a “T”.

    • yes. I am more afraid of his presidency now than I was before. I suspected he felt this way, but to hear / read him say these things really brings it home. Hugs

    • I’ve said this since Day One. He thinks he is the Boss. He has NO CLUE what it means to be POTUS.

      Sometimes I watch Designated Survivor and consider how that president acts as compared to what I can vividly imagine happens in the Oval Office. Sure, it’s a TV show, but I bet it’s a far better representation of how most presidents would act. IOW … intelligent, dignified, composed (because he knows what he’s doing), yet forceful and determined when he needs to be.

      • I am going to look the show up. I think the lady Education Secretary cabinet officer in Battlestar Galactica who became president showed the really great depth a president should have. Hugs

    • We have what is called a representative government.
      http://www.yourdictionary.com › Dictionary Definitions › representative-government
      representative-government. Noun. (plural representative governments) An electoral system where citizens vote to elect people to represent their interests and concerns. Those elected meet to debate and make laws on behalf of the whole community or society, instead of the people voting directly on laws and other debates.

      It is just that ours is a bit broken and needs some better people running for office and a few fixes. Hugs

      • It really neads some fixes especially for the number of voters being allowed to vote: Right now it prefers the number presidential electors for individual states preferred by Republican voters. You should fight for each individual – one vote. This would give you democratic elections, and make your country a shining example for the world. The system of electing a president by presidential electors is injust and therefore in my opinion no longer tolerable, cause it allows too many manipulations – as if the US were a third-world country.

      • The electoral college was originally intended to help small states who felt they wouldn’t have a voice. Remember back then there was no TV, Radio, Or internet. We do have groups trying to get rid of it. I know some states have laws that electors must follow the voting will of the people, some do not. That also is a fix we need to use. One advantage of the system was to keep total nutjobs from stealing an election but as you see it did not work with tRumpsky. Thanks for the comments Miles, I have not heard from you in a while. Hugs
