Of all the scary things about Donald J. Trump, United States President and there are many, I think somehow the fact that he had no idea how hard the job was going to be and that he thought it would be easier than running companies into the ground or grabbing pussies or whatever the fuck it was he used to do might be scariest of all. Without saying so directly, it’s basically him admitting that he somehow had no idea what he was in for when he ran and by extension, no idea what he’s doing now. He also seems to have little to no aptitude for learning these things, but that’s another story entirely.
He misses driving, feels as if he is in a cocoon, and is surprised how hard his new job is.
President Donald Trump on Thursday reflected on his first 100 days in office with a wistful look at his life before the White House.
“I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” Trump told Reuters in an interview. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”
Trump, who said he was accustomed to not having privacy in his “old life,” expressed surprise at how little he had now. And he made clear he was still getting used to having 24-hour Secret Service protection and its accompanying constraints.
“You’re really into your own little cocoon, because you have such massive protection that you really can’t go anywhere,” he said.
When the president leaves the White House, it is usually in a limousine or an SUV.
He said he missed being behind the wheel himself.
“I like to drive,” he said. “I can’t drive any more.”
It also says here that he’s still handing out copies of the electoral map to reporters, I guess just in case we somehow forgot he won. Don’t worry, man. We remember. Ain’t enough vodka in the universe to scrub that memory. Trust me, we’ve tried.
