Donald Trump Didn’t Want to Be President
New York Magazine, by Michael Wolff

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 1/3/2018 1:20:48 PM

On the afternoon of November 8, 2016, Kellyanne Conway settled into her glass office at Trump Tower. Right up until the last weeks of the race, the campaign headquarters had remained a listless place. All that seemed to distinguish it from a corporate back office were a few posters with right-wing slogans. Conway, the campaign’s manager, was in a remarkably buoyant mood, considering she was about to experience a resounding, if not cataclysmic, defeat. Donald Trump would lose the election — of this she was sure — but he would quite possibly hold the defeat to under six points. That

This is really from The Onion, right?

It reads like a fairy tale. All you have to do is look at WHAT his has done since elected! If he never wanted the job, he would follow Barack Obama´s example... being lazy and letting others do his job, while he never cared one day about the consequences of his actions.

Trump is the antithesis of Obama. If he doesn´t want to be President, it doesn´t matter.. he´s doing a hell of a job at it!

Maybe, just maybe 1% is true. The rest of what I read is anger emanating from small minds, like the ones at NR who wrote the anti-Trump letters while he was still a candidate.
The adults being in charge and having to maneuver the landmines buried by obummer and company prior to departure, is a new concept to those who bow to big government.
How does a very successful businessman suddenly become stupid? Only in small minds!

Put the correct name in the statement (Romney) and we might believe you. At least we have it from the very lips of Romney´s own son and his wife that he really didn´t want to win the 2012 election.

I suspect this guy´s book is going to go down in flames, as some of the most egregious of the statements are already being debunked in various places around the internet.

FTA: The decisions that Trump and his top advisers made in those first few months — from the slapdash transition to the disarray in the West Wing — set the stage for the chaos and dysfunction that have persisted throughout his first year in office.

Gee, with all that Trump has accomplished in his first year, imagine what he could have done if he had single-minded concentration on MAGAand the press were a wind at his back rather than 95% negative against him.

Now think about this -- Donald Trump didn´t want to become president, but he colluded with the Russians to win. The "didn´t" want to become president and the "colluded with" is coming from the same brain damaged Left. So which one of their diametrically opposed theories (if any) are we supposed to believe? (Note: the first sentence is attributed to a conservative female writer whose name I can´t remember.)

This hit piece of a book was contrived, like the infamous Dossier was to destroy Trump and his character.
For all these so-called fictitious staffers at the White House that criticized President Trump, wished they had 1/100th of his intelligence, his education, his experience and his personality.

... Donald Trump, one of the world´s most famous and wealthy people, didn´t want to be President, but colluded with Russians (thereby risking his entire empire and reputation) in order to be President.

Maybe it´s true. Maybe not. An old story has it that at the 1st little league organizational meeting in my town, the league president asked for a show of parents´ hands who wanted to manage a team. The president then selected those WITHOUT their hands in the air; felling they´d make better team managers.

No one, absolutely no one, campaigns with the energy and dedication, the absolutely exhausting schedule, that Donald J. Trump did. No one. I’ll be few remember the last days when a yuge number of campaign stops, in distant parts of the country, were crammed into just a few days.

Wolff is in this for the money. Must we be even a little bit complicit? Sad.

C) Trump held rallies (sometimes eight a day) to become what he didn´t want to become. Did I get that right? It´s all what the liberal media reported about Donald Trump. Do we need any further evidence that liberalism is a mental disease?

The inundation of preposterous “news” excerpts and/or stories to destroy President Trump by alluding to a variety of serious personality disorders reeks of purposeful orchestration, much like the “golden showers” dossier, to set the stage for the Left’s grandiose plan to remove him from office. The stench appears to emanate from, and envelope, Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.” Whether or not much of the mainstream media believe the accusations or not, the Left knows that their low-information constituents are easily fooled, so their dastardly deeds serve to achieve their goals—accomplished by utilizing Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”

Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star... to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius... and a very stable genius at that!"

Actually he might be correct.

Unlike swamp dwelling career politicians I don´t think being president was Trump´s lifetime dream. He would probably have been content to just continue in the business world where he made his success. But he saw where things in DC were headed and felt called to do something about it.

When you think of it that way the word Patriot comes to mind.

#43- Well-stated. Delusional/sanctimonious mainstream media devoid of real world integrity passes judgment on the President and family who have lived and continue to live in the real world and not the fairy tale world of the media. Example: The facial expression of Melania at the inauguration after her husband turned and said something to her going from a beaming smile to a solemn expression has been portrayed as being due to her husband’s comments to her. More likely, Melania’s religious convictions reacted appropriately, reverentially, to the solemnity of the moment wherein the Reverend Franklin Graham was speaking.

If Trump had a moment of doubt about running for President, it wasn´t because he thought he would lose. And it wasn´t because of the risk to his life [from a shadow government hit-man, or "disappointed office seeker" or crackpot]. I really believe he knew every other candidate lacked the Americanism, and vision, and leadership skills and timing and energy to fix what had to be fixed, and the guts and God-fearing honesty to inspire a return to exceptionalism. Given Obama has the country hanging by a thread, he sees the problems clearly. He know how to bring in the job under budget and under schedule. Also no conservative America, no winner as a Commander in Chief -- no Trump empire.

At best, this book by Woolf is a literary caricature, heavily slanted to appease the truth that the left would like to hear, and worry the right. He has brilliant disclaimers in his forward that give him literary license to stretch the truth that semi-protects him from libel or slander.

The problem is it stretches the credulity of most logical people. The presidents demonstrated effectiveness in producing or making progress toward all of his promises as shown in the first year are undeniable demonstrations of his competence, whether you agree with his actions or not. Especially when he as accomplished these feats against unprecedented and illegal sabotage.

I´m not worried about this book. It reduces the credibility of the author and all who repeat this orchestrated tripe, and produces awe, even in those who do not want the president to succeed.

As I reported here, the Campaign Legal Center filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission last year alleging that Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee violated campaign finance laws by not revealing their payments to Fusion GPS. In an October 25, 2017 filing with the FEC, the watchdog group accused the Hillary for America campaign and DNC of failing to “accurately disclose the purpose and recipient of payments for the dossier…effectively hiding these payments from public scrutiny.” The complaint was filed one day after the Washington Post confirmed that both entities paid Perkins Coie – a

President Donald Trump and his outside advisers are increasingly worried that his longtime personal attorney might be susceptible to cooperating with federal prosecutors. Two sources close to the president said people in Trump’s inner circle have in recent days been actively discussing the possibility that Michael Cohen — long seen as one of Trump’s most loyal personal allies — might flip if he faces serious charges as a result of his work on behalf of Trump. “That’s what they’ll threaten him with: life imprisonment,” said Alan Dershowitz, the liberal lawyer and frequent Trump defender who met with the president and his staff over

Sean Hannity has had no shortage of lawyers. In court on Monday, his name was disclosed as the third “mystery client” of Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen. Though Hannity says he was never actually Cohen’s client, he does appear to have used the legal services of other well-connected Trump-world lawyers in a different matter a year ago. On May 25, 2017, KFAQ, a radio station based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, received a cease-and-desist letter signed by two lawyers for Hannity: Victoria Toensing and Jay Alan Sekulow. Toensing’s signature sits above her name and that of her husband Joseph E. diGenova, the

Facebook is suspending a data analytics firm called CubeYou from the platform after CNBC notified the company that CubeYou was collecting information about users through quizzes. CubeYou misleadingly labeled its quizzes "for non-profit academic research," then shared user information with marketers. The scenario is eerily similar to how Cambridge Analytica received unauthorized access to data from as many as 87 million Facebook user accounts to target political marketing. The company sold data that had been collected by researchers working

Jeffrey Goldberg’s announcement that The Atlantic had “parted ways” with our old friend Kevin Williamson — what a gutless way to announce you’ve fired someone, a week or so into the job — represents a successful effort to redefine “beyond the pale” in the political debates of 2018, or to close the Overton Window, if you prefer that metaphor.

Facebook has deleted some of Mark Zuckerberg´s private messages over fears sensitive data could be leaked. Three sources claim old Facebook messages from Zuckerberg have disappeared from their inbox. The recipients were not notified - raising concerns about what the Facebook CEO could be hiding. Facebook claims the change was made after the 2014 Sony Pictures hack, when a mass data breach at the movie studio resulted in embarrassing email histories being leaked. However, the lack of disclosure has angered some users, along with the absence of a similar tool to recall messages for normal users.

WASHINGTON — At least five officials at the Environmental Protection Agency, four of them high-ranking, were reassigned or demoted, or requested new jobs in the past year after they raised concerns about the spending and management of the agency’s administrator, Scott Pruitt. The concerns included unusually large spending on office furniture and first-class travel, as well as certain demands by Mr. Pruitt for security coverage, such as requests for a bulletproof vehicle and an expanded 20-person protective detail, according to people who worked for or with the E.P.A. and have direct knowledge of the situation. Mr. Pruitt bristled when the officials —

Did you know that this year marks the 20th anniversary of a black actor portraying a Marvel superhero in a big budget studio film? No, I am not writing about Black Panther from the future. No, you have not Rip Van Winkle’d to the year 2038. The truth is that this is the 20th anniversary of Blade, a $45 million Marvel superhero movie distributed by New Line (which was part of Time-Warner) that starred Wesley Snipes, a black man. Blade was also a hit in 1998, going on to gross $131 million. Two sequels soon followed. Blade II arrived in 2002 with a $54 million budget and a $155 million gross. Oh, and Blade II was not directed by a

President Donald Trump said on Thursday he did not know about a $130,000 payment made to the adult film actress Stormy Daniels for her silence, his first public acknowledgment of the scandal surrounding an alleged sexual affair that has plagued him for months. "No," a terse Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One when questioned about his knowledge of the payment, which was made by his private attorney Michael Cohen in the month before the 2016 election. The one word response broke a months-long public silence from Trump on the matter, though he´s fumed about the issue in private and adamantly denied

It looks to us like Lawrence Kudlow is off to a good start as President Trump’s new director of the National Economic Council — just in the nick of time. The markets are on edge because President Trump has started to impose on Communist China, and some of our other adversaries, the tariffs that as candidate he’d promised the voters he’d use. Standing in front of the White House yesterday Mr. Kudlow went on Fox Business Network to try to calm the waters. Mr. Kudlow’s basic message is that if there’s a problem on the trade front, the blame belongs not

Former FBI Director James B. Comey said Wednesday that he no longer considers himself a Republican. “I just think they’ve lost their way, and I can’t be associated with it,” Mr. Comey said on ABC News podcast “Start Here.” Mr. Comey attributed the change in the party to the 2016 election and said that after he was fired, he started to become more politically aware. He has been a lifelong Republican and said that in today’s party, the only Republican he does respect is former 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney. He called Mr. Romney, who is running for the open Senate seat in Utah, a “person of principle and honor.”

Washington - Dozens of Democratic U.S. Senators on Wednesday introduced a resolution calling for Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt to resign on allegations of ethics lapses. Those relate to the agency’s purchase of a $43,000 sound booth for his office and spending on travel and security. The resolution was signed by 39 senators in the 100-member Senate, which is controlled by Pruitt’s fellow Republicans. Although Republicans can defeat it, the resolution is symbolically important because it represents the most senators ever to call for a Cabinet member’s ouster in resolution, its sponsors said.

Eleven House Republicans have sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray officially referring Hillary Clinton, fired FBI Director James Comey, fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for criminal investigation. FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who were caught sending hundreds of anti-Trump text messages during the Clinton investigation, have also been referred for criminal investigation. U.S. Attorney John Huber, who was tapped by Sessions a few weeks ago to investigate the FBI´s handling of the Clinton email probe, was copied on the request. “Because we believe that those

(Video) - Former Playboy model Karen McDougal is now free to discuss her alleged affair with President Trump, after reaching an agreement with the tabloid company that had prohibited her from speaking, according to McDougal. McDougal said she is "relieved to be able to tell the truth" about her story. McDougal, who alleges she had a sexual relationship with Mr. Trump over 10 months in 2006 and 2007, had sued over the $150,000 contract she had with American Media, Inc., the company that owns The National Enquirer, for keeping her from speaking about it. McDougal´s lawyer previously said the AMI contract

Over the last five years, cancer research has seen the “greatest advances,” including a new approach to treating the complex disease as a “chronic disease,” instead of trying to cure it. “We have seen the greatest advances in cancer medicine in the last five years with drugs targeting the immune system moving into the clinic and showing remarkable response rates with quite a few different malignancies,” Lisa Coussens, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Cell, Developmental & Cancer Biology, said to Fox News at the American Association for Cancer Research annual conference.

Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama are building a swimming pool at their home in an exclusive neighborhood of Washington DC. The 44th president and his family purchased the the 8,200 sq ft mansion in the Kalorama area of the capital in 2017 for $8.1million having initially rented the property. Plans are now afoot for a new swimming pool in the grounds, according to TMZ, which says it has seen building permits. The permit application process started in January, the website reports, and there have been a number of reviews about electrics and plumbing in recent months. Last year, it

“If the Trumps were Democrats,” conservative actor James Woods tweeted earlier this month, “Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” Woods may be exaggerating a little bit — only Oprah can put herself on the cover of a magazine every month, and it’s her own magazine — but he does make an interesting point. First Lady Melania Trump has not graced the cover of a single magazine in the United States since her husband took office over a year ago. Michelle Obama, on the other hand, was featured on at least thirty

University of Michigan Professor Sarah Ensor published an academic journal article this month that argues that humans should establish erotic relationships with plants. Originally highlighted by the Twitter account New Real Peer Review, Ensor’s journal article explores the field of “ecosexuality,” a term which means the sexual relationship between humans and plants. Advocates in the field argue that the Earth needs to be treated with love. In addition to reducing harmful environmental practices, ecosexuals believe that humans should physically make love to the Earth. Ensor, an English professor at the University of Michigan, begins by citing the “Ecosex Manifesto,” which

Congress may ban the slaughter of cats and dogs to sell as meat or for human consumption and punish offenses with a year in prison and a $2,500 fine. The House Committee on Agriculture approved by voice vote an amendment to the farm bill Wednesday that would make all sales of domesticated canines and felines illegal, Politico reported. “Adopting this policy signals that the United States will not tolerate the disturbing practice in our country,” California Republican Rep. Jeff Denham said in a statement as he introduced the amendment. Some believed the ban unnecessary, as eating dogs and cats is rare in the

Stone´s comments come after he posted an initial statement on Instagram where he tore into the former first lady following her death.

President Donald Trump’s tax cuts will be anything but for about 1 million California taxpayers who will owe Uncle Sam more money a year from now. They’re the Californians who will lose a collective $12 billion because the new law caps a deduction they have been able to take for paying their state and local taxes, according to a new analysis by the Franchise Tax Board.
