( CNN) Watching from Europe, it's hard to tell if we are playing audience to a farce, a tragedy, or both unfolding simultaneously in the White House.

Given how critical any details emanating from the White House are to assuage European worries about President Donald Trump's intended relationship with Russia, this should not be a giggling mater. But it's pretty hard not to wince and grin.

It seems a farce because of the inexperience among Trump's inner circle. His ridiculously quick attempts to deliver on campaign promises from the moment he stepped inside the White House seems at odds with the four-year word he has been handed.
