For Trump’s Backers to Call The Chaos That Surrounds The Donald A Management Style Is An Asshole Rationalization

Trump has no management style. To claim a management style would be to indicate at least some minimum level of competency. Using a sports analogy, if the Donald were a football running back he would have the fewest yards per carry in the league, or were he a wide receiver he would have the most drops per target. He just fumbles and bumbles everything he touches, and ends up screwing and ruining everyone that comes near him.

So how did such a mess of a human being end as President of the United States — Hillary, Comey, exploiting xenophobia, voter suppression and Putin’s Russia? Yes, he had an incredibly perfect storm of dumb luck.

Yet this notoriously lazy, moronic and utterly talentless man does have a powerful insight when it comes to exploiting the emotional weaknesses of others, precisely because it takes one to know one.

Indeed, Trump is a hopelessly weak and shallow man. How do we know this? He tells us every day with his flurry of childish tweets. Only a thoroughly desperate person could put out such baloney without embarrassment.

When the Russians and the underworld are finished with him and call in his debts to them, he will be dead broke. He is all sparkle and no substance, the original pig with lipstick and a bad hairpiece.

Truly this porker has no management stile period, unless, that is, you call lying and intimidation a management style.
