This is not how the White House is supposed to work. Whole aparatuses are supposed to be there to protect the President from sending out unvetted executive orders, tweeting attacks on federal judges that hurt the government’s chances of prevailing in court, and yes, even from tweeting articles he hasn’t read and that don’t say what he thinks they say.

Think about it this way: If the Trump White House is so incompetent that it is citing my work by accident, how on earth can we trust it to handle North Korea?


It’s one thing to be different in an approach to governance, it’s another to break things that should not be broken.
