Is the Key to Trump the “Sideshows,” Not Real Policies?

Maybe we have the key at last!

"But these seeming distractions are the president’s substance — and the legislative agenda his predecessors have approached with a singular focus is, for him, largely a diversion."

I generally avoid paying attention to his antics these days, but this piece is one of the most insightful ones on DJT I have seen. Indeed, his main focus as president seems to be on the "sideshows," not the policy issues which previous presidents have seen as their main responsibility.

Most of us have really been looking at his behavior upside down, because we expect presidents to be interested in the real problems of the world.
