I see a lot of clickbait stuff to the effect that focusing too much on Trump’s mental health (or Trump/Russia) is a bad scene, because then people aren’t paying attention to his policies. Come on. People can pay attention to more than one thing at a time.
It’s no secret by now that Trump is out of his depth, unable to comprehend the vast federal bureaucracy he’s supposed to command, incapable of absorbing the knowledge necessary to inform critical decisions about commanding it, and frankly, uninterested in anything that isn’t directly related to whichever immediate concern has hijacked his limited attention span at any given hour of the day.
But now we are seeing how that psyche is choking off the entire White House from the world, not just so Trump can maintain control over the government, but so no inconvenient truths can infiltrate his fortress and encroach on his reality.
