I have to ask this, is President Trump a competent human being. As I type this I'm being left with the impression that the leading Republican on the committee has no real idea what he's talking about, but that he's still a competent human being, only willing to obfuscate and blather because he's afraid of being wrong.
The impression I've been left with here is that he is convinced he can't be in the wrong, because he can't understand how he could be wrong. The very notion that his actions are improper simply can't and won't occur to him. This leaves me with the question, is he competent to hold the office of President of the United States?
In short, the man simply can't understand what a quid pro quo is. Based on his career as a business man I rather doubt he ever put together a business deal knowing what he was doing. From his actions as President I rather doubt that deals are really part of politics and governance. I can only conclude that his "Art of the Deal" is a load of blather.
You know, Mike Pence maybe a fundie, but he could be a competent fundie. Trump is neither, and I suspect we'd have a better chance of surviving Pence.
