You're right. But other presidents look first for people who are competent and and experienced.

Remember that cabana boy?
"such as claiming the press is fake." A LOT of what the media says IS fake. Just look at the latest CNN story for example.

"Reporters FIRED for "fake" news, retraction after retraction ONLY after having been caught.

For the best part of Trumps time in office we have heard Russia, Russia, Russia day in and day out 24/7and looked how that turned out for them.

The media HAS and HAS HAD a lower approval rating then even Congress, which is VERY low, for DECADES for very good reasons.?

Yup. Just look how many people hes personally hand picked and how many of them are now gone all because of his ego. Someone wants to step down he fires them before, they are able too.

I saw the title of this topic and thought to myself, this is bull**** from either the NYT, WaPo, or CNN. Bingo. WaPo.

Some people never learn.

It's easy to say, okay, no big deal, after all, Trump's father was already the one to build up the wealth, and now Trump has a scattering of children by his wives, and some will keep running with his money, as they've been brought up to seek the spotlight.

But if you look at it from another angle, it's a little chilling. We have had dynasties of a sort, like the Kennedy and Bush families, but they weren't so pushy as to announce themselves in advance - and, of course, they had some acquaintance with politics beforehand. Add into mix Trump's hints that maybe we should forgo the next election, or that he should hold the presidency beyond two terms. It starts to convey the idea of a monarchy - an idea that would have horrified the founders - or the promises of the Third Reich.

Trump and his family are a dynasty that will last for decades, campaign manager says
You mean...like the Clinton dynasty we were so barely saved from?
