True. He clearly isn’t up to the task, and he is as clearly a deteriorating, pervy old man. But in the end, I think you improperly trivialize the power he wields. Real people are suffering in terrible ways because of the policies he’s enacting, and I highly doubt that those people share your rather calloused-seeming dismissal of him. He’s not in a nurses’ station. He’s at the United States, and he is doing terrible, evil things. He may not be a genius, but he really is evil. Just asked the thousands of children who have been separated from their families and who may never see their parents again. The way you frame this story is irresponsible and so wrong it rises to the level of immoral.
