Donald Trump and the part-time presidency.

I can’t help myself.

Fellow bloggers will understand. There is a deep compulsion that drives us to write. Particularly in the face of overwhelming stupidity, mendacity, pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth.

So Donald PG Trump will be a source of irresistible inspiration. Please bear with me for the next four years.

In his most recent press conference, generally described as a train wreck, he said that

He has “no conflict of interest provision as president” and that he would be free to run the Trump organisation and the government at the same time if he wanted.

Nevertheless, he said he had decided against it.

It staggers belief. The man thinks that the job of President of the United States can be done on a part-time basis.

It makes you wonder if he has any idea what the task involves.

He has said he is handing control of the Trump organisation to his two sons.

Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr., 

Was it me? Or did he appear to forget their names during the press conference?

There must be many people in the US who despair and think that they now have a President who will simply be incapable of doing the job.
