Trump’s eyes rolled back in his head as aide struggled to explain the Constitution to him: report

Published

on

Among the explosive revelations in The Daily Intelligencer‘s excerpt from Michael Wolff’s new book about President Donald Trump was the fact that Trump got so bored during an explanation of the U.S. Constitution that aide Sam Nunberg threw in the towel at the Fourth Amendment.

New York magazine — which hosts the Intelligencer blog — published a lengthy section from Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House in which readers learn that First Lady Melania Trump wept with despair on Election Night 2016, that President-elect Trump didn’t know who then-Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) was and that he was not only ignorant about the Constitution, but deeply incurious.

“Everybody in his rich-guy social circle knew about his wide-ranging ignorance,” wrote Wolff. “Early in the campaign, Sam Nunberg was sent to explain the Constitution to the candidate.”

“I got as far as the Fourth Amendment,” Nunberg told Wolff, “before his finger is pulling down on his lip and his eyes are rolling back in his head.”

Tony Schwartz — ghostwriter of Trump’s biggest-selling book, The Art of the Dealhas said in the past that Trump has “the attention span of a kindergartner.”

“It’s impossible to keep him focused on any topic, other than his own self-aggrandizement, for more than a few minutes,” said Schwartz, who regrets his role in helping craft the myth of Trump as a brilliant businessman.
