Aides Reportedly Include Trump’s Name ‘In As Many Paragraphs’ As Possible So He’ll Keep Reading Important Docs


Today, Reuters has a new article out titled, “Embroiled in Controversies, Trump Seeks Boost on Foreign Trip.” Inside of that report is a nugget of information that is taking the political world by storm this Wednesday morning.

Here is the section:

He likes single-page memos and visual aids like maps, charts, graphs and photos.

National Security Council officials have strategically included Trump’s name in “as many paragraphs as we can because he keeps reading if he’s mentioned,” according to one source, who relayed conversations he had with NSC officials.

Yes, per this report, when he’s briefed on something that isn’t about him, Donald Trump can only pay attention to it if his handlers somehow make it about him.

Do recall that Trump is notorious for self-promotion. During the primary debates, he needlessly responded to jabs about the size of his hands with an assurance about the alleged size of his penis. His insistence that he has “the best” of everything has turned into a joking American catchphrase that is especially popular in impressions done by late-night hosts. For the six months since he won the presidential election, he has used speeches and interviews to promote the fact that he won in spite of the inappropriateness of some of the settings.

The list goes on.
