Despite my druthers, I've been a tiny bit open to the possibility our president will do okay in his four years. This is based mostly on the idea that people learn, and surely the presidency is an intensive educational institution. Trump has a notoriously thin skin, which perhaps makes it more likely that he will learn, that the pain of public opprobrium and criticism will cause him to change his ways, maybe even adopt different ideas and goals. As they would have said in the days before political correctness took over: to teach a mule sometimes you have to go upside his head with a 2 x 4.
We don't know the answer to my question today; we just need the patience to wait and see, meanwhile administering 2x4's as appropriate.
