This time may be different. Trump was not a normal candidate, the 
transition is not a normal transition, and this will probably not be a 
normal administration. The president-elect is surrounding himself with 
mediocrities whose chief qualification seems to be unquestioning 
loyalty. He gets credit for becoming a statesman when he says something 
any newly elected president might say (“I very much look forward to 
dealing with the president in the future”) — and then reverts to 
tweeting against demonstrators and the New York Times. By all accounts, 
his ignorance, and that of his entourage, about the executive branch is 
fathomless. It’s not even clear that he accepts that he should live in 
the White House rather than in his gilt-smeared penthouse in New York.
