Will he never learn? After more than six months in office, I had hoped President Donald Trump, the blowhard campaigner and inept manager, would morph into the thoughtful, admired leader of the free world. How disappointing.
His failure was not for lack of advice; he was surrounded by the best and brightest — so we were told. At his side was his cabinet, plus family advisers, communication advisers, chiefs of staff, department heads, former talk-show hosts, former campaign chiefs, Wall Street billionaires, personal lawyers and a tree full of lobbyists.
Perhaps Trump is just a slow learner and, therefore, in need of a mentor, a social worker with the wisdom of the ages. More specifically, this mentor should have an outstanding academic background, years of experience in the world of politics, well known and well connected.
Never miss a local story.
The candidate should be unemployed and not currently running for office. Last but not least, the mentor must be comfortable working with the elderly (70 years and beyond) who suffer fits of anger and short attention spans.
Is Hillary Clinton looking for work?
