He may be a buffoon. He also may be acting like a buffoon to lay the groundwork for something much, much worse. He could also be a buffoon that someone else will use to those ends. That's why I always say we shouldn't call Trump stupid all the time. It could be true, but if it is, there is nothing to do but mitigate the damage and wait him to pass anyway. If there is more to his antics than just Trump being Trump we should be watchful to prevent significantly worse events that could come.
