Trump Signs Executive Orders Without Reading Them

I won't even try making a punchline for this, since nothing could top this straightforward quote from the New York Times:
Mr. Priebus bristles at the perception that he occupies a diminished perch in the West Wing pecking order compared with previous chiefs. But for the moment, Mr. Bannon remains the president’s dominant adviser, despite Mr. Trump’s anger that he was not fully briefed on details of the executive order he signed giving his chief strategist a seat on the National Security Council, a greater source of frustration to the president than the fallout from the travel ban.
Think about that: not only does our dumbshit president not write his own executive orders, he doesn't even read the damned things before he signs them! To the point where he didn't even realize who he was appointing to his own security council. Remember that the next time some Trumpster insists he's a savvy businessman; a truly savvy businessman (or halfway intelligent teenager) would know better than to sign any contract without reading it first.

The same day the Times reported this story, Trump took to Twitter and said "I have instructed Homeland Security to check people coming into our country VERY CAREFULLY. The courts are making the job very difficult!" But I offered an even better idea: why not have Homeland Security check the contents of his executive orders before he signs them? You know, since Trump can't be bothered to read them himself.
