According to Trump, the VAST SILENT MAJORITY wants a smart person to be President. Can Trump make the cut? Is he smarter than Joe Biden?
After being President for nearly 4 years, the entire world has come to doubt Trump’s intellectual prowess. Back when he was a reality TV show host, his production team used smoke, mirrors, and a lot of air brushing to make Trump look smart. These tricks haven’t held up on the world stage.
Apparently, Trump is SO dumb, that several of the people around him refer to him as an ‘idiot’. That isn’t a very nice thing to say now, is it?
Trump’s chief economic adviser Gary Cohn describes Trump as “dumb as sh-t,” explaining that “Trump won’t read anything — not one-page memos, not the brief policy papers; nothing. He gets up halfway through meetings with world leaders because he is bored.”Robert Reich
We have already implied that Wharton was amiss to graduate Donald Trump, but in their defense, Wharton seems to understand their role in this mess.
Professor Kelley told me 100 times over three decades that “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had.” I remember his emphasis and inflection — it went like this: “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddamn student I ever had.” Kelley told me this after Trump had become a celebrity, but long before he was considered a political figure. Kelley often referred to Trump’s arrogance when he told the story that Trump came to Wharton thinking he already knew everything.Frank DiPrima
People tried to warn America. Remember when Republican national security officials wrote an 8 page letter that described how empty headed Trump was?
Most fundamentally, Mr Trump lacks the character, values, and experience to be President. He weakens U.S. moral authority as the leader of the free world. He appears to lack basic knowledge about and belief in the U.S. Constitution, U.S. laws, and U.S. institutions, including religious tolerance, freedom of the press, and an independent judiciary.GOP National Security Officials
Yes, we would agree that is some pretty basic stuff where Trump is lacking. That wasn’t all they had to say, however.
In Addition, Mr Trump has demonstrated repeatedly that he has little understanding of America’s vital national interests, its complex diplomatic challenges, its indispensable alliances, and the democratic values on which U.S, foreign policy must must be based. At the same time, he persistently compliments our adversaries and threatens our allies and friends. Unlike previous Presidents who had limited experience in foreign affairs, Mr Trump has shown no interest in educating himself. He continues to display an alarming ignorance of basic facts of contemporary international politics. Despite his lack of knowledge, Mr Trump claims that he understands foreign affairs and “knows more about ISIS than the generals do”.Smart people who saw Trump for who he is
This is what else Tillerson had to say:
“It was challenging for me,” he said, “coming from the disciplined, highly process-oriented Exxon Mobil corporation, to go to work for a man who is pretty undisciplined, doesn’t like to read, doesn’t read briefing reports, doesn’t like to get into the details of a lot of things, but rather just kind of says, ‘This is what I believe.’ ”Rex Tillerson
Now should Trump REALLY be having the nerve to call other people stupid? No matter how stupid he claims Biden is, Biden is way smarter than Trump will ever be.
