Karl Rove: ‘Trump lacks the focus or self-discipline to do the basic work required of a president’

Karl Rove, who most remember as the brains behind George W. Bush, didn’t hold back his criticism for Donald Trump.

“His chronic impulsiveness is apparently unstoppable and clearly self-defeating,” wrote Rove in an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal. “Mr. Trump may have mastered the modes of communication, but not the substance, thereby sabotaging his own agenda.”

Rove took aim at Trump’s tweets. He didn’t go so far as to call them lies, as they are, but he called it a lack of fact-checking that makes people question his “competence and trustworthiness.”



“Mr. Trump has figured out how to tweet his way around the mainstream media,” Rove wrote. “Yet by disregarding basic fact checking, he is deepening the already considerable doubts Americans have about his competence and trustworthiness.”

Then it seems like Rove starts going full psychologist on Trump.



“Increasingly it appears Mr. Trump lacks the focus or self-discipline to do the basic work required of a president,” Rove wrote. “His chronic impulsiveness is apparently unstoppable and clearly self-defeating. Mr. Trump may have mastered the modes of communication, but not the substance, thereby sabotaging his own agenda.”

Personally, I have absolutely always despised Karl Rove, and never once agreed with him. It’s quite strange to now be both against the same man.
