Trump on health care

Speaking to the assembled governors a few days ago, Trump exclaimed, "I have to tell you, it's an unbelievably complex subject.  Nobody knew that health care could be so complicated."

Well, no, not quite:  anyone who worked on the Affordable Care Act would have known.  Anyone who actually read about the act would have known--but Trump doesn't read anything, apparently, except his teleprompter and glowing press clippings about how wonderful he is.

What I find most remarkable is that he actually said this.  Trump has little or no idea about how complex his job is.  It's much to the point that he assumes that everyone shares his own level of ignorance:  "Nobody knew."  Our only hope is that Trump will continue to learn how much he doesn't know.
