Very few pundits that I listen to really get it about Donald Trump. Most of them think there’s a there there as far as Trump is concerned. They have some pop psychology theory of what makes him tick and say that he is “smart.” Of all the pundits who regularly comment on Trump, the two who seem to understand his true nature are Steve Schmidt and Howard Dean. So I always feel sane again whenever I listen to either one of them discuss Trump.
Here’s what Dean said on MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari Melber
“When asked if the White House is prepared for a Democratic House takeover, ‘I think they are pretty much wholly unprepared to do anything. Trump is a guy who just thinks in the moment. He has no plan. I actually thought the other day when he was making all those really crazy tweets he might be getting psychotic. So I don’t think there’s any long-term planning. I think the staff tries to engage in long-term planning but you’ve got these neo-Nazi types like Stephen Miller running around. He has an agenda, not the end good of America, but he sucks Trump in every time. There’s an incredibly short-sighted group of people. The ones that have a long-term vision can’t get anything done because Trump is unmanageable.’”
