Trump broadcasts his colossal ignorance to the world, once again and the world laughs at his stupidity.
From the Daily Kos: "Steve Almond observed in a recently published essay, 'He appears powerful to his followers, which is central to his strongman mystique.' ”
It is evident that Trump is one of the weakest presidents to sit in the Oval Office, at least in my lifetime, and I've known presidents since DDE.
It is a well-known truism that anyone who has to use threats and bullying to get his or her way is weak. The guy who bragged so loudly about his negotiation skills has negotiated himself into a corner over The Wall. All Trump has left to convince the 60% of Americans who do not support him or his wall fetish are empty threats of creating a national emergency and his quickly vanishing "mystique."
Trump is weak.
The longer this shutdown continues, the weaker he gets.
