It's easy to out prepare a doofus that doesn't prepare at all.

Electing an incompetent childish lazy narcissist was a very bad idea. But then again GOP voters are full of bad ideas every single day.

Wait - I thought the Left still believed Trump was Putin's puppet - in that case, why would he need to prepare at all? By whining about his preparation now, you are admitting your past nonsensical statements were just that - utter nonsense. Good job!

Being ignorant and lazy are good qualities in a puppet.

You're right, Mac, the whole country lost when the unprepared con man "won" the 2016 election.

Ira - nice try at logic. Trump can be suspected of being Putin's puppet AND it is still unfortunate that he is unprepared to serve in the interest of the country he supposedly leads. He repeats Russian versions of history that most of the world disagrees with, so there's little doubt about what's going on.

It's the moronic turds that voted for a lazy incompetent demented narcissist over someone that would go into world meetings prepared because of her emails.

Fat Nixon won the presidency with help from the same guy that mopped up the room with him.

Jeez, I wonder why Putin would have wanted such an easily controllable patsy in power? Anyone?

"I will hire only the best people."

"I have chosen one of the truly great business leaders of the world, Rex Tillerson, Chairman and CEO of ExxonMobil, to be Secretary of State."

"Rex Tillerson, a man who is 'dumb as a rock' and totally ill prepared and ill equipped to be Secretary of State..."

Both Bill and Hillary were always very prepared and knew even small details about issues they were discussing. You may not have liked them but they were totally professional in the manner they carried out the duties of their offices and that was the opinion of the Republicans Hillary served with in the Senate.

So he wouldn't have been such a stupid puppet. When he believed Putin over our own intelligence agencies, puppet was the least offensive term for him. I prefer bitch.

Ira doesn't understand that a puppet master controls his puppet. So sorry for your lack of cognitive function.

That's so 2018. We've moved on to Trump's obstruction and cover-up

to keep the public from learning that there was no collusion.
