Probably a pointy haired Dilbert boss.  That is executive material there!

It doesn't matter whether or not he can read, as long as he can sign his name, that's all the GOP needs from him.

He can read.  His ego is simply too big to be worried by whom those he considers his lessers think of him.

After all, narcissistic power mongrels do not get where they do by caring about anyone except themselves.

That is just a little too dead on. If he doesn't bend to their will, I suspect they will impeach him eventually and give the presidency to Mike Pence.

I'm not sure Pence would be a whole lot better, but almost anything would be an improvement...

I dunno, his twitter record shows he easily gets triggered by what people say about him.. unless someones reading it to him, and he's responding (imagining mike pence spelling the words for him now as he figures out how to use a keyboard)

Even as a self describe queer, I would strongly prefer Mike Pence over Donald Trump. He may be a homophobe, but he's not going to start World War 3. I have trouble sleeping sometimes because I'm afraid of what POTUS is going to do next. Mike Pence is just a religious conservative, probably not too different from W. The world would survive his administration.

Well, we can always hope, I suppose...

As long as it's written in crayon in one-syllable words, preferably babyish words like "weewee" and "poopoo".

I'm no fan of Trump, but at first blush, this news seems preposterous.  I mean, the guy has the best words and he's the best in the world at a bunch of things, second only to Kim Jong Il.  Jokes aside, it seems crazy for a multimillionaire businessman to be this inept at basic human tasks.

I mean, he wrote The Art of the Deal!

Quote
Schwartz had ghostwritten Trump’s 1987 breakthrough memoir, earning a joint byline on the cover, half of the book’s five-hundred-thousand-dollar advance, and half of the royalties.
Quote
"I put lipstick on a pig,” he said. “I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.” He went on, “I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization.”

If he were writing “The Art of the Deal” today, Schwartz said, it would be a very different book with a very different title. Asked what he would call it, he answered, “The Sociopath.”

Okay, so he didn't write the Art of the Deal and his ghostwriter hates him.  Big deal.  Jesus didn't write the New Testament, it was still a hit.

And yeah, he talks like a third-grader, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's dumb.  He's just speaking in a way his supporters can easily understand.  If anything, he's implying that his supporters are dumb.

Quote
And while Mr. Obama liked policy option papers that were three to six single-spaced pages, council staff members are now being told to keep papers to a single page, with lots of graphics and maps.

“The president likes maps,” one official said.

Narcissists and babies are similar.  And old men need Depends too.

Don't fret, the recent coup causing his first cabinet loss (of someone already in the cabinet) is supposed to be General Betrayus working in the shadows.  Please practice calisthenics, so you won't been injured when you goose-step.

Whether can read or not, there is no evidence that he DOES!  From all accounts, he mostly watches the visual and spoken TV political news and responds to that.

This is disturbing.  But he may represent the future...

I prefer to impeach both Trump and Pence for lying to the public and admitting it. The problem is that leaves us with Paul Ryan who want to completely gut social security and sell it off to the highest bidder. 
All hail my new signature!

Well, technically, if Ryan was to assume office after Trump and Pence were impeached, he could go too.
