Donald Trump is a more of a persona than a logician. He's bold, unafraid to speak his mind. It would be erroneous to construe this boldness as a virtue, however -- it's more like he simply has no filter and takes pride in being insensitive and ignorant.

I love Joe even more today because he made this most consequential decision from a position of strength. He did not let his ego get the best of him. Many a weaker man would have given it the college try.

Trump Should Be Speaker -- And Still Run For President. Seriously

Trump as Speaker would also be the greatest campaign move in history. It is not a time-consuming job; all you have to do is make top-line decisions and make deals.
