It’s intuitive, this Trump MO. When doing the CNN documentary on candidate Trump last year, I spoke with Louise Sunshine, a vice president of the Trump Organization for a dozen years in the seventies and eighties. Something she said about Trump’s management style stuck with me: “Donald has always managed to walk into a meeting and say something nobody else ever expected him ever to say, upend the entire meeting, leave everybody agog and control every situation that way…”

Well, there you go. Only now it’s not a small business meeting, but a national conversation. And we follow him around like moths to a flame. One minute, it’s North Korea. But wait. There’s an incendiary tweet on the NFL. Onto that field.
