Trump-Style Tactics Finally Stopped Working For Uber
"At the dinner, Emil Michael, the right hand of CEO Travis Kalanick, heatedly complained to me about the press. The company, he told me, could hire a team of opposition researchers to fight fire with fire and attack the media — specifically to smear a female journalist who has criticized the company. I suggested to him that this plan wouldn’t really work because the story would immediately become a story about Uber behaving like maniacs. 'Nobody would know it was us,' Michael responded. 'But you just told me!' I replied."

James Comey, is this man bothering you?
"Comey: so for instance I thought of a good one the other day
if I try to hide in the curtains
Sessions: what
Comey: like physically camouflage myself in the curtains
Sessions: I don’t understand
like Scarlett O’Hara?
Comey: is this a Southern reference
Sessions: is my name Jefferson Beauregard Sessions"

Trump’s Incompetence Won’t Save Our Democracy - The New York Times
But a careful reading of contemporary accounts will show that both Hitler and Stalin struck many of their countrymen as men of limited ability, education and imagination — and, indeed, as being incompetent in government and military leadership. Contrary to popular wisdom, they are not political savants, possessed of one extraordinary talent that brings them to power. It is the blunt instrument of reassuring ignorance that propels their rise in a frighteningly complex world.

"Covfefe" tells you all you need to know about Donald Trump -
What it should prove is that Trump is neither willing nor able to change his stripes. He is a 70-year-old man (he will be 71 on June 14) who has had much success in his life. And he believes that the way in which he was elected president -- against all odds and doing everything traditional politics says not to -- is an affirmation that he is the only person who really understands his supporters and the mood of the country.

That assumption is what leads him to ignore advice from advisers about, maybe just maybe, putting down his phone at, say, 10 p.m. -- or never picking it up at all. Trump believes in Trump -- first, last and always.

Staff will come and go. But to expect anyone to change Trump in any way is to ignore, literally, his entire adult life.
Which means more "covfefes." Maybe many more.
