And why did voters believe he could do things as easily as he said he could?

I'll add something else to yours: he surrounded himself by "yes" men his whole life and often had someone to bail him out of hard times. Also, for years, he enjoyed a lot of good press (yes, he had that years ago). Now, all this has vanished. Alone..
I think a lot of people saw him this way from the beginning - including me. There also seemed to be nothing to worry about at the time because we all thought most everyone else could see that, too. They did, but didn't come out to vote. *sigh*
One irritating thing about T-fans: Trump's past doesn't count - at all. They seem to be incapable of acknowledging it & the rare times they do 'it doesn't matter'. Hillary is still being clubbed bcuz of BILL'S scandal decades ago. Its freakin ama
I think Trump thought it would being president was like being a King in a democratic monarchy. It would be ceremonial only.
Good one, Mike. Ironically, I think it takes a politician to understand politics. Trump was elected by people who don't understand politics, so they shouldn't complain about his not keeping campaign promises because he doesn't either.
or not (and I lean toward not because there are other govbranches), simply trying to run it that way can't be as easy as it sounds.
Fortune wrote a good piece on Trump's potus education. I still think he is capable but not so sure he has time to learn. He seems overwhelmed & that makes me feel (a little) sorry for both him & us. http://fortune.com/2017/04/29/trumps-first-
Great comment Mike, trump thinks that by getting elected all his problems went away that after his coronation he could do or say anything he wanted, and his followers would worship him and I guess some do, he needs to be dethroned.
Best answer I've heard from a Trump supporter. Are you willing for him to continue to back away from his campaign promises - other than his supreme court choice?
Here's another good article: How the Left Learned to Hate Like the Right https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/29/opinion/sunday/... Trump has inspired a political awakening. I hope its not too late.
We have seen this situation before with Democrats in Congress and the White House.
We have never seen this level before, please correct me, if you disagree.
Not enough room 2 respond. 50s R long gone & things R so different. 1st sentence is Trump & Co's problem: they were all SURE everyone would fall in line behind him after election - we HAVE to, don't we?! Who needs majority or bipartisan or un
I think you're right. We had experience with Mike Huckabee, a businessman governor also a Baptist preacher. He kept wanting to pass his religious beliefs as laws, and kept saying he would run the state like a business. He was a one-termer.
Corporations run better than the government. The government today is obese, and non functional.
911 and 2008 are the products of an obese and non func govt.
A corporation has to produce, and they just can't print money.
Whether it can be ran like a business or not (and I lean toward not because there are other gov. branches), simply trying to run it that way can't be as easy as it sounds.
