Jack Moore at GQ reviewed a recent NYT article on Trump’s first two weeks in office, and caught this remarkable paragraph:
For the moment, Mr. Bannon remains the president’s dominant adviser, despite Mr. Trump’s anger that he was not fully briefed on details of the executive order he signed giving his chief strategist a seat on the National Security Council, a greater source of frustration to the president than the fallout from the travel ban.
As Moore noted,
There are only two options here. Donald Trump either read this executive order and did not understand what placing Steve Bannon on the National Security Council (especially at the expense of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the director of national intelligence) would mean, which is terrifying … or Donald Trump didn’t read the executive order that he signed.
Trump’s dislike of reading has been well documented throughout the campaign.
