Quote of the Day

Via Jane Mayer's piece about Trump's ghostwriter, Tony Schwartz.  I found this excerpt 100% chilling:
“'Trump has been written about a thousand ways from Sunday, but this fundamental aspect of who he is doesn’t seem to be fully understood,' Schwartz told me. 'It’s implicit in a lot of what people write, but it’s never explicit—or, at least, I haven’t seen it. And that is that it’s impossible to keep him focused on any topic, other than his own self-aggrandizement, for more than a few minutes, and even then . . . ' Schwartz trailed off, shaking his head in amazement. He regards Trump’s inability to concentrate as alarming in a Presidential candidate. 'If he had to be briefed on a crisis in the Situation Room, it’s impossible to imagine him paying attention over a long period of time,' he said."
But, you know, Hillary Clinton made a Pokemon joke the other day, so there's basically no difference between the two.
