It's as if that uncle you have, the one that makes family get togethers awkward, is President elect. He is operating on a very shallow level, intellectually and strategically. I know that people will long debate whether or not he is actually sly and only acting as such, but to me, the truth is plain to see.

Or, more specifically, as if the legislative, judicial, civil government and military structure must perform as if the executive branch has been incapacitated and coopted by a foreign power.

It will be interesting to see how we perform when every foreign power and influencer of note has a "make the US do something embarrassing" button.
