Robert Reich, in The Guardian, on trump’s lack of action:
He tweets bogus threats that he has no power to carry out â€“ withholding funds from states that expand absentee voting, â€œoverrulingâ€ governors who donâ€™t allow places of worship to reopen â€œright awayâ€, and punishing Twitter for factchecking him.
And he lies incessantly.
In reality, Donald Trump doesnâ€™t run the government of the United States. He doesnâ€™t manage anything. He doesnâ€™t organize anyone. He doesnâ€™t administer or oversee or supervise. He doesnâ€™t read memos. He hates meetings. He has no patience for briefings. His White House is in perpetual chaos.
Trumpâ€™s nonfeasance goes far beyond an absence of leadership or inattention to traditional norms and roles. In a time of national trauma, he has relinquished the core duties and responsibilities of the presidency.
He is no longer president. The sooner we stop treating him as if he were, the better.
