35. As the example of George W. Bush shows, a blank slate President can easily be manipulated by advisors with a radical agenda.
Retweeted by Aaron Marks39.The problem here is that Trump isn't changing the policy intentionally but upending it out of ignorance (and staff manipulation).
Retweeted by Aaron Marks80% of the time, Trump will be right that the niceties are useless. But the downside from the 20% will exceed the upside from the 80%.

1. This was the worst day of reporting on Trump since he started running for office. It's distressing.
Retweeted by Aaron Marks10. Trump didn't say he was selling his company. That's the only thing that matters. Everything else is smoke and mirrors.

Reminder to PEOTUS: 36 days before 9/11, President Bush ignored his Daily Brief titled "Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US." #Important
Retweeted by Aaron Marks7. What Trump is saying is not that 3m illegals voted. What he's saying is: I'm going to steal the voting rights of millions of Americans.
Retweeted by Aaron Marks2. She noted how decent liberals of 1930s Germany would "fact check" the Nazis' bizarre claims about Jews like they were meant to be factual
Retweeted by Aaron Marks3. What they failed to understand, Arendt suggests, is that the Nazi Jew hating was not a statement of fact but a declaration of intent.
Retweeted by Aaron MarksIf #PEOTUS spreads lies every day, we must speak out--and act, and resist--every day. #TrumpismIsNotNormal I wrong, or is the president-elect of the United States retweeting a 16-year-old who is leveling false accusations of voter fraud?
Retweeted by Aaron MarksDemocrats said they received more calls on this issue than any other, ever. Phone-calling, people! It's worth it.
Retweeted by Aaron MarksThis factless madness shows @realDonaldTrump to be unhinged. If PresNixon had a Twitter account it would not reflect this much paranoia.
