Presidenting is Hard Work

According to Matthew Yglesias anyway.

It’s a big, difficult job in which mistakes can have catastrophic consequences for the lives of millions of people, and where you don’t get to declare bankruptcy and start over again if you mess up. You don’t have to walk into the Oval Office knowledgeable about every issue under the sun on day one to be successful — nobody’s ever met that standard, and nobody ever will — but you do need a credible team, and you need to be able to get up to speed.

Trump's the guy for those people who the Chinese saying"May you live in interesting times" as something to be wished for. 

And to the extent that you are primarily hoping for a president whose term of office will feature lots of crises, scandals, surprises, tension, and drama, with the attendant persistently high cable news ratings that implies, then Trump will be an excellent president.
