    I heard this last night on Colbert and could not believe it was true and then I found the proof - absolutely amazing that our POTUS is acting like a grade school toddler (but not shocking either):

    Trump routinely rips up papers that need to be preserved

    WASHINGTON – They never thought they’d be piecing the presidency together.

    Solomon Lartey and Reginald Young Jr. admitted to Politico their Trump administration jobs were to use Scotch tape to repair papers that President Trump destroyed.

    The trained records management analysts made more than $60,000 a year to preserve presidential documents for the National Archives before they were abruptly fired earlier this year.

    But the career professionals say their jobs changed when Trump came to the White House because the new commander-in-chief routinely rips up documents that need to be preserved.

    Under the Presidential Records Act, the White House must hold onto presidential records for safekeeping and historical purposes.

    But staff had a hard time convincing Trump to ditch the habit of ripping up papers when he was finished and tossing the confetti-like pieces into the trash and on the floor.

    So staff got into the habit of collecting the discarded, hand-shredded papers and sending them next door to the Old Executive Office Building, where career staff had to tape them back together, “like a jigsaw puzzle,” Lartey said.

    The shredded works included newspaper clippings that Trump marked up, memos and letters, including one from New York Sen. Chuck Schumer.

    “I had a letter from Schumer — he tore it up,” Lartey said. “It was the craziest thing ever. He ripped papers into tiny pieces.”

    The men said they had never been assigned such a task in their years of government service. They eventually were terminated from their jobs without explanation, Politico reported, and they are seeking an explanation why.

    The former employees revealed their odd job duties in an interview about their dismissals.

    “We had to endure this under the Trump administration,” Young said. “I’m looking at my director, and saying, ‘Are you guys serious?’ We’re making more than $60,000 a year, we need to be doing far more important things than this. It felt like the lowest form of work you can take on without having to empty the trash cans.”

    My dog likes to do that sometimes. She is a healthy dog, fairly smart as dogs go.

    Therefore, Trump is a healthy person, fairly smart as people go.

    (How'd I do? Can I get a job as a Fox commentator now?)
