Shocking Report: Trump Might Have No Idea What He’s Doing

According to Trump regime officials who spoke to the New York Times this morning ahead of the DACA announcement, it's possible Trump actually has no idea what he's doing or what will happen next.

As late as one hour before the decision was to be announced, administration officials privately expressed concern that Mr. Trump might not fully grasp the details of the steps he was about to take, and when he discovered their full impact, would change his mind, according to a person familiar with their thinking who spoke on condition of anonymity without authorization to comment on it.

Trump doesn't seem to understand anything about anything so it's plausible that he doesn't grasp the fully implications of ending DACA.

There should be no doubt that Trump himself is a stone-cold racist and that has certainly influenced his decision in this case, but it's also likely that those closest to Trump like Sessions, Miller, and Bannon have told him very tall tales about DACA and immigration in general. Jeff Sessions couldn't even make the formal announcement this morning without lying.

It's also plausible that they haven't been honest about the political and economic consequences of doing this, but you can bet that Trump will blame anyone but himself when everything goes wrong. You can also bet that he won't change his mind because he never apologizes for anything.

    Could we get his handlers to set up a fake “Fox and Friends” style TV show on CCTV that only he can see explaining the consequences of the shit he wants to do? Because currently he seems to do things and then watch cable news to see what the consequences of that action are. Because it’s not like he doesn’t have advisers to tell him that stuff but he doesn’t believe it unless it comes from his “boob tube.”

    … [I]t’s possible Trump actually has no idea what he’s doing or what will happen next.

    Something which is undeniably true no matter what the subject is.

    Don’t forget that DACA is A Thing That Obama Did. As Trump more manifestly demonstrates every day his unfitness not only for the presidency but for any actual job, “Obama made fun of me at the WHCD so I’m going to destroy everything he did” is the only reason for his running that still stands up.

      I don’t think people in general quite understand how correct you are. Trump doesn’t care about consequences because Trump only cares about Trump. Therefore his mission to undo everything Obama did is just a game to him because he doesn’t care who gets harmed by it. We essentially gave a kid who likes killing ants with a magnifying glass the keys to the White House.

      somewhere in the bowels of he white house, there is a ‘yuge, spectacular tally board, most delicious tally board your ever had,’ with a list of all the things ‘the black guy did’ and they are checking them off as quickly as possible.
