Does Trump Know What He’s Doing?

does_trump_know_01b_jpeg I think that it has to be admitted that Obama is either the greatest or the worst president ever, and that it hinges on whether or not Leftism generally has merit. But Trump says that Obama “doesn’t know what he’s doing” and that he’s “totally incompetent.”

This subject is worth a full writing, but for now what I can remember off the top of my head will have to suffice. The question comes down to essentially two aspects: 1) does he know what he is doing with regard to running the government, and 2) does he know what he is doing with regard to politics and accumulating power? For Obama, the answer has to be <i>yes</i> to both. I didn’t elaborate on any of these at length, but I didn’t include anything that I couldn’t if it were challenged. I could expand this list to be four or five times as long.


— exaggerating the influence of Islam on the Founding.
— said at a Baltimore mosque that ‘Islam’ comes from ‘salam’ and means ‘peace’—it actually means ‘submission’.
— says that R’s caused the finanical crisis. He said, “after they drove the car into the ditch, made it as difficult as possible for us to pull it back, now they want the keys back.”
— picked Elena Kagan & Sonia Sotomayor for SCOTUS.
— Runs to mic for gun control after every shooting.
— cries when speaking about gun control
— frequently mentions ‘Ferguson’.
— said twice, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”
— is committed to closing gitmo.
— resorted to DACA when Congress wouldn’t pass immigration reform.
— made recess appointments that were illegal because the Senate wasn’t <i>fully</i> in recess.
— sued Arizona for its immigration laws that basically enforced Federal law.
— said, “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”
— referred several times to Israel returning to its “pre-1967 borders.”

So, since Obama must know what he is doing—after all, how could an incompetent illegally do a recess-appointment?—does Trump know what he is doing? We will see that with regard to 1) government policy, he does not, and with regard to 2) accumulating power, he may very well know what he is doing.
