A Trump staff shakeup won't solve his problem
President Donald Trump, who prefers cable news to reading, should take a quick glance at a book by the late Walt Kelly. He's the cartoonist who invented Pogo and had him say, "We have met the enemy and he is us."
As Trump deals with his first resignation of a top White House official and, according to multiple reports, considers a deeper staff shakeup following the rockiest start of any modern president, Pogo could teach him something important that he appears determined to ignore: The problem is the president.
The chaotic lack of discipline, duplicity, ad hoc actions and ad hominem attacks that mark Trump's first weeks in office were hallmarks of his campaign. It worked then, but it's a lot harder to govern that way.
