From “Fire and Fury” -- how did we get here?


According to the book, Trump never reads (he’s described as “post-literate”) and as president he only wants to show up and sign things. Paul Ryan did some massive sucking up which Trump appreciated. Eventually, Trump offered to let Ryan run the government for him. That’s why everything we’re seeing – such as the Tax bill – is Paul Ryan’s plan and why Ryan is, in turn, protecting Trump. 

One sad example from the book is that Trump balked at the Republican healthcare plan.  He said “Why can’t everybody just go on Medicare?”  But Ryan convinced him to go with the Republican plan.
