Merely giving orders is not leading

Conservatives were angry at Obama for issuing Executive Orders, never admitting that he did so less than most (all?) modern presidents. Now we hear not a peep from them over the fact that Trump has no clue how to lead a government and so — completely predictably — does nothing more than issue Executive Orders.

Giving orders may constitute leadership in a family owned business but it is not real leadership in a democracy. I confess that, though I expected him to be a terrible leader, Trump’s sheer incompetence has far exceeded my worst expectations.

That incompetence alone would be cause for serious concern that he is going to do a great deal of damage to America very quickly. More serious, I fear, is the Russian slime which coats Trump and several of his team members. That slime is making me want to shout all the louder what I’ve been saying all along, that Trump is a more serious threat to America than ISIS could ever hope to be.
