Less than a week into his term, President Trump has validated the concerns of #NeverTrumpers. His narcissistic temperament, impulsivity, reliance on family and ignorant cronies and own deliberate ignorance make governance an ordeal. The nuts and bolts of  governance and early failures of his senior team in the West Wing, who lack any governing experience, deserve more attention. Let’s look at two missteps (aside from the bald-faced lies about crowd size and the millions Trump says voted illegally — assertions that leave us wondering whether he is mentally stable).

First, apparently after watching Bill O’Reilly on Fox, the leader of the free world tweeted out some statistics referenced by the gadfly and notorious purveyor of false information (here, here, here and here). The facts were wrong, and Trump added his own, bizarre vow: “If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible ‘carnage’ going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!” The actual number is 37 killings — far too much — and the shootings, while too high, are on par with the previous year. (The Post reports: “According to a police department spokesman, there have been 38 killings through Tuesday night, up from 33 at the same point last year. Shootings were even, with 182 shootings through this date both years.”)
