Nearly one year after Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, and by any objective measure, his tenure has been an embarrassing failure characterized by humiliating legislative defeats, unprecedented scandal, and a remarkable amount of vociferous support of literal white supremacists. In a surprising development, though, one of the myriad voices offering a frankly critical review of Donald Trump’s performance is none other than… Donald Trump.
During a Cabinet meeting yesterday morning, after asserting that he maintains “great relationships” with “most” Republican senators, the president made a startling admission.
We’re not getting the job done.
Yes, in this tradition of Harry S Truman and pretty much every commander-in-chief worth a damn who has served since then, President Trump acknowledges that a political party’s failings must necessarily be blamed on its leadership, and that the GOP’s hilarious inability to pass any legislation of note despite controlling the White House and both chambers of Congress rests squarely at Trump’s feet. Perhaps this signals a new era of the administration in which his patented brand of pathological narcissism finally gives way to the type of leadership that he has long promis—

I can understand where Steve Bannon’s coming from
…a place that legitimately imperils your legislative majorities, the sum total of whatever you call a coherent policy agenda, and perhaps even your presidency itself? Cool.
I can understand where a lot of people are coming from, cause I’m not happy about it, and lot of people aren’t happy about it.
To be clear, “it” in this scenario refers to his presidency, which, again, is a thing that has been an abject failure.
The president went on to utter of some his standard-fare lies about his recent decision to end payments that make health insurance affordable to low-income Americans (“I cut off the gravy train”), and about the continued viability of the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare is finished, it’s dead, it’s gone. You shouldn’t even mention it… There is no such thing as Obamacare anymore.”). But it’s the single undeniable truth he uttered—however quickly he may have attempted to retract it—that stands out. Donald Trump is an inept, talentless president, and those who believe otherwise need only listen to the wise words of the man himself.
