While New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) was sunning himself on a government shutdown-enabled private beach over the Fourth of July weekend, Donald Trump was a few miles away, enjoying yet another stay at one of his golf courses.
It looks like maybe they both got a little too much sun, because while Christie was busy kissing the last 15 points of his approval rating goodbye, Trump was busy wandering off down the tarmac at Joint Base Andrews on Monday, before being directed back at the presidential limousine he had just been standing at.
This isn't the first time that Trump has lost track of something that was right in front of him, including his own vice president and Rudy Giuliani. Honestly, who can blame him for those two?
But hopefully, Trump will be able to focus a little bit better when he meets Russian dictator Vladimir Putin this week, because he's got a lot more to lose than a Super Bowl ring.
