Donald Trumpís most enduring ó and unbefitting ó trait - Allan Sloan

Iíve been covering Donald Trump off and on for more than 25 years, and what has always struck me is his lack of impulse control. It was his biggest problem when I first started dealing with him in the 1980s, and itís his biggest problem now.

Plenty of financial and real estate players got carried away in the go-go 1980s. But Trump was in a class by himself.

He ended up presiding over six ó count íem, six ó bankruptcies because he kept making business decisions with his gut rather than with his brain.

Trumpís less-than-stellar business history has been well documented by The Washington Post and other newspapers, magazines and online publications, as has his lack of self-control in his personal life. But what has not been fully explored is the impulsiveness ó actually, total recklessness ó that was at the root of the pivotal decisions that tanked his businesses.That same impulsiveness is at the root of Trumpís self-inflicted political and business problems today.

Also,

Oddly enough, Trump is thinking about starting a #NeverPence movement.



and

Newt is sad that he'll be spending the rest of his life making foolish, racist, hypocritical comments from the sidelines.


LOL, Trumpy choosing Pence as VP is part of the Friday news dump.

"Mike Pence is poised to take his place alongside Spiro Agnew, Dan Quayle and Sarah Palin on the

Mount Rushmore of idiotic GOP VP candidates." - Frank Conniff

and

"Sure, Trump is a bigot, but Mike Pence has a proven track record of using bigotry to ruin a state's economy."

Where are Trump's taxes?

This should be a drumbeat. Why is the media silent about his taxes? It should be brought up by every Democratic pundit, talking head, politician, etc.

I'll be 1st to give credit where credit is due: I think Nintendo just solved the obesity crisis in

the US (or a least a good step toward abolishing it). This weekend, there were about 200 people wandering between University Mall and GMU playing Pokemon Go.

In my neighborhood, older teenagers and 20-somethings were running up and down the streets, around our parks and bike paths playing Pokemon Go. These are people who are never outside and never getting exercise. The person stuck indoors playing games 24/7 finally went outside for some fresh air. Of course, their nose was still stuck in a screen, but it is a start.
