Brooks Column Did Not Age Well

Jonathan Chait: “Four days ago, David Brooks broke the news in the New York Times that President Trump is actually a sober-minded and competent public servant.”

Wrote Brooks: “People who go into the White House to have a meeting with President Trump usually leave pleasantly surprised. They find that Trump is not the raving madman they expected from his tweetstorms or the media coverage. They generally say that he is affable, if repetitive. He runs a normal, good meeting and seems well-informed enough to get by.”

“It is safe to say that this column has not aged well in the short time since its publication.”
