*Here’s a crazy story that’s gonna have a lot of people scratching their heads and for others it’ll be confirmation that Donald Trump is unqualified for the job and bit off more than he can chew.
A new Wall Street Journal report sheds more light on the closed-door meeting between the president-elect and President Obama. It suggests that Obama may stick around to give Trump guidance on how the office works. To which all we (and a lot of others) can say is wow! Other are asking WHY is Obama involving himself?
The Journal’s report hints that Trump “seemed surprised by the scope” of the president’s duties and that he and his team were unaware of the fact that the entire administration staff had to be replaced when he takes office.
During their private White House meeting on Thursday, Mr. Obama walked his successor through the duties of running the country, and Mr. Trump seemed surprised by the scope, said people familiar with the meeting. Trump aides were described by those people as unaware that the entire presidential staff working in the West Wing had to be replaced at the end of Mr. Obama’s term.
After meeting with Mr. Trump, the only person to be elected president without having held a government or military position, Mr. Obama realized the Republican needs more guidance. He plans to spend more time with his successor than presidents typically do, people familiar with the matter said.
