One of the "selling points" of the Trump administration was that Trump was a "businessman" and would know how to run the country like a business. This is sort of hard to parse, as in terms of business, his record is kind of spotty. He built luxury high-rises using tax incentives designed for public housing. He paid too much for Atlantic City casinos, over-mortgaged them, and then walked away when it all went to hell - leaving Atlantic City as a nightmare ghetto.
In fact, some folks have had to decline to work in the Trump administration as untangling themselves from their business interests would be close to impossible.
Of course, we have had business people in the White House before - most notably Robert McNamara - the guy who brought you the Edsel and the Vietnam war. Again, a guy with a lot of business theories (one of the "whiz kids" at Ford who had no real experience in the car business, but a business degree) but no real experience about how average people live.
Sadly, it seems this trend will continue indefinitely. Ordinary people simply cannot run for office, because they likely tweeted something wrong or posted something on their Facebook page that would come back to haunt them. The media holds our political leaders to an almost puritan standard, acting shocked when they do human things like get drunk or have sex (two pastimes more popular than baseball and apple pie in America).
So we will continue to have these theorists, who don't live in reality, but instead live artificial lives, and study us regular folks as if we were specimens in a zoo - trying to discern our eating habits and whatnot and control the environment in our cages. One side wants it too hot, the other side, too cold. In the meantime, ordinary people suffer.
Maybe we need less theory and more reality.
