27. He doesn't have the attention span to sit for it.

Nov 2018

With both Presidents Clinton and Obama, their evident enjoyment and appreciation of the artists really made it fun to watch. Even the Bushes (especially George HW) seemed to like it.

Even if the audience was circumspect and left him alone, I simply can't see Trump sitting still without fidgeting and getting restive. Have you ever heard him quote an author, or say he liked a movie or play? Does he seem to have any music that he likes?
