1. That's probably true, but we've seen the quality of most of Spanky's other hires.

Intelligence isn't required. All he wants is a bunch of Doug Stampers.

4. He may want people of Doug Stamper's character, but he's got nobody nearly as smart at his side ...

Nor probably, indeed, as loyal as Doug.

Nice House of Cards reference, BTW ... love(d) that show

5. But truth is always stranger than fiction.

House of Trump is outdoing House of Cards as a depiction of cynical power-seeking and corruption; the difference is that the Underwoods were evil, but not stupid.

6. I disagree. I think he's exactly smart enough to be Trump's lawyer

Those who are ate up with the Dunning-Kruger not only overestimate their own competence, but also tend to think subordinates who are incompetent are the competent ones.

7. A competent, ethical lawyer would find it difficult to work for Trump.

So, who he gets are neither.
