And this is different than other Presidents?
There's actually something to that
When you're President, you can talk about nothing for 30 minutes but you have to do it artfully. Obama was very artful at filling up time with nothingness. In many respects, so were Reagan and Clinton.
The grave sin, at least to the chattering class, is that Trump isn't artful about anything.
But I doubt most people realize that when Presidents are experts at anything, they are usually experts at only one thing- drama acting. That's one reason Reagan was so good at it. He was patriotic melodrama personified. Obama was progressive melodrama personified. That only connects with people who want to hear that kind of message.
Trump doesn't check that box at all and it pisses off the "dignity of the office" people (I am one... but less than I used to be)
