Donald Trump entered the presidency with zero understanding of how the office works. Somehow he expected the most demanding job in the world to be simple enough that an ignoramus like him could do it.
“I loved my previous life. I had so many things going. This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier,” Trump said in an interview with Reuters.
Former Mexican President Vicente Fox couldn’t resist the urge to tear into Trump’s ignorance:
.@realDonaldTrump, a 100 days! Being President ain't easy, you know? You're tired, just leave, go back to golfing. America will understand.

Fox is the same former president who previously took down Trump’s border wall with similar aplomb:
TRUMP, when will you understand that I am not paying for that fucken wall. Be clear with US tax payers. They will pay for it.

Kudos to President Fox. He isn’t afraid to hit Trump hard, and his experience adds a great deal of weight to the barbs.
