Really, who else can he blame? These are things he has control over, but he doesn't realize it.

"Trump tweeted Monday that the Justice Department “should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version” submitted to the Supreme Court. He added that his administration should seek a “much tougher version.”But it was the president himself who signed an executive order replacing his original ban."

Uh, ok... so, pull it back, and write a new one. Or, republish the first one. Don't go after a court decision on the weaker one that he signed. Not to mention, his administration can't decide what to call the thing. TRAVEL BAN!

"Of the 559 positions in the federal government that require Senate confirmation, just 39 people have been confirmed, and Trump hasn’t nominated anyone to fill 442 of them"

Not only that, trump seems to be unaware that the republican hold the Senate, along with the House, and that the dems can't stop any confirmation... much less any that haven't been nominated yet.

"Yet Trump apparently blames Democrats for the delay. “They are nothing but OBSTRUCTIONISTS!” Trump said on Twitter, adding that he wanted "approvals.""


Hard to get "approvals" when you can't be bothered to actually make any nominations.

Sometime I wonder if Trump is not in the early stages of Dementia, like his father. Slightly more likely, is that Trump was not cut out for this job. He is completely inept and doesn't understand the ramifications of what he says or does. Add this with his amoral personality and chaotic mind and you have a combustible combination that will not end well.

We are all on a bus with a lunatic bus driver.

I suspect there are many qualified people who will not consider employment with this administration, regardless of their political ideology. When Kelleanne Conway's husband, who is pro the temporary travel ban, publicly criticizes Trump for his tweets, says something about the inner circle. No way I would associate myself with this administration given the demonstrated instability of Trump.

I voted Trump and did not drink the Kool- aid. Almost 4 months in and he has not yet demonstrated the ability to control his impulses. Most of Trump's challenges are of his own making.

Even Fox News is slowly turning on Trump.

"Fox News' Neil Cavuto Calls Out Donald Trump: Stop Scapegoating. You Are The Problem..."

https://www.yahoo.com/news/fox-news-...092915557.html

Less than 6 months in and the Trump Administration is in complete chaos and falling apart fast.
SAD! (Actually I'm VERY happy about it. Trump is going down in flames and taking the entire GOP down with him. Trump is the best thing that's ever happened to the Democrats. THANK YOU to all the fools who voted for Trump - especially those who voted for Trump over a more rational GOP candidate!!!!!!).
Life is good!

Why is trump so angry at his own decisions?


Because he knows they're made by a narcissistic egotist more concerned with his own interests than the country's.

The bad part is that the country is going to go through a significant amount of torture before coming out the other side. It will be fundamentally changed, and only time will tell if it is for the better.

HOW could you not see that Trump was a total lunatic and a disaster waiting to happen? It was obvious to anyone.

Yeah, well, sometimes folks have to pay a price to learn a lesson. It might be a steep price, but it's a hard and important lesson.

Many people knew he'd be a disaster in the WH but this is what the people elected so we all have to deal with this now. The main issue with this President is that he has allowed all the news in the media to distract him. He's responding to things he's been calling fake news, he's been himself acting on possible fake news. When asked to clarify information on certain topics he shuts down or his cabinet shuts down and throws out statements like "alternative facts". This is worse than what goes on in third world countries.
