Los Angeles Times: “Unabashedly proclaiming his desire for a second term, Trump filed the paperwork establishing his 2020 reelection committee the day he took office and has already started fundraising, years before his predecessors began raking in cash. He has trampled protocol and turned explicitly nonpolitical events, like the Boy Scouts’ national jamboree, into replicas of his roisterous campaign stops.”

“Perhaps most significantly, Trump has transformed the bully pulpit — the president’s ability to rally the country in pursuit of his goals — into a sort of vanity project, staging events not to advance any substantive agenda but to vent and, as aides admit, bask in the adulation of supportive audiences.”

“He obviously loves the thrill of the crowd,” said Julian Zelizer, a political historian and presidential expert at Princeton University. “But it’s not connected to some bigger agenda or ideological worldview that he’s espousing. It’s about the act of campaigning, which gives him juice.”

The crowd of several hundred cheered and jeered, some turning on the assembled press corps with middle fingers raised.

1. Good thing Obama was never like that

"into a sort of vanity project, staging events not to advance any substantive agenda but to vent and, as aides admit, bask in the adulation of supportive audiences.”

“He obviously loves the thrill of the crowd,” said Julian Zelizer, a political historian and presidential expert at Princeton University. “But it’s not connected to some bigger agenda or ideological worldview that he’s espousing. It’s about the act of campaigning, which gives him juice.”

2. President Obama has no ego, and is 100% about cause. trump is all about unfit & illegit

and President Obama put up 175% of his agenda and a smidge has gotten knocked down.
Net gain is way more than any other two President ever accomplished in the history of the nation.

trump meanwhile has attained nothing, which is a life-trait to donald, who squandered his pappy's money
and asked for more and more so he could squander more.
Anyone seen trump's prize possession, the Taj in Atlantic City lately? Like everything he touches,
it is in ruins. truly emulating Scar in the fabled Lion King.
