Trump, on the other hand, is congenitally allergic to boredom. His campaign has attracted chaos from the day he rode down the Trump Tower escalators to announce his candidacy. Add to that the continuous mismanagement of the campaign, which never misses a chance to step on its own messaging, and you've got one of the most chaotic, disorderly campaigns in recent history, in service of one of the most unpredictable, unmanageable candidates.

A life-sized statue of Nixon on a Chinese tarmac in front of Air Force One, greeting Premier Chou En-lai, is one of many new exhibits at the Nixon Presidential Library. The 15 million renovation is a time capsule of mid-20th century Americana. The newly renovated wing showcases key moments from the Nixon administration. Iconic photos, like this one of the 37th president and rock-and-roll legend Elvis Presley, abound. The newly reopened library and museum showcase Richard Nixon's personal history as well.
Trump is incensed because news organizations have reported on his administration's mistakes, inconsistencies, falsehoods, lack of coordination and other problems, which is par for the course when a new president takes over. Last week, Trump demanded and got the resignation of his national security adviser Michael Flynn, who misled Vice President Mike Pence over Flynn's contacts with Russia. On Monday, Trump named Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster as his new national security adviser. In addition, Trump's first nominee for labor secretary, Andrew Puzder, a fast-food chain executive, withdrew from consideration because of opposition in the Senate, and the president hastily named a replacement, Alexander Acosta, dean of Florida International University law school.
