Bush: ‘Chaos Organizes the Presidency’

“When I ran for office, I said he is a chaos candidate and would be a chaos president. Unfortunately, so far chaos organizes the presidency right now.”

— Jeb Bush, in an interview with CNN.

No Zest to Investigate

As the White House devolves into chaos and confusion,
And Team Trump responds with rebukes and accusations,
Why hasn’t the Congress
Moved to address the mess?
And where is the Republicans’ old zeal for investigations?

Trumpians Using Chaos to Mask Substance

We can’t stress this enough: Watch closely the specific, substantive moves of the Trump White House. Try to block out the white noise of outlandish statements and unforced errors, and the hyperventilating they provoke. … Otherwise, you miss the big — and in some cases, radical — changes coming our way. In fact, White House officials tell us they welcome what seem like needless distractions, because it allows them to jam through transformative, disruptive ideas and orders without focused public scrutiny of any particular item.
