If Trump’s a moron what are you?
Bottom Line: Your daily doses of nonsense in the media and my takes on them...
Is Trump Too Doltish to Be Dangerous? T.A. Frank, Vanity Fair
Excerpt: For all that Trump blusters about assassinations and libel laws, the saga of the West Wing whistle-blower proves the president is a paper tiger without the self-discipline to get anything done.
Hot Take: The very reason I started with the “Tracking Trump” series within two weeks of Donald Trump being sworn in as President is encapsulated in that excerpt and this story generally. To tell the story of what President Trump is actually doing day to day because news media only would cover what they wanted to.
To date President Trump is closing in on nearly 300 executive actions, two Supreme Court justices, thousands of repealed regulations, dramatic foreign policy success and tax reform. Doesn’t exactly fit the narrative does it? Then there’s the other part of the story and it’s also part of an attempted narrative by the back again Barry on the campaign trail. Trump’s not smart and not capable. It’s the height of all absurdity.
Not only is it beyond far-fetched to assert that Donald Trump managed to moron his way into the oval office, but even dumber in my view is what he did prior. What moron takes $1 million and creates a multi-national corporation operating in over two-dozen countries employing more than 22,000 people and producing $9.5 billion in revenue? If a moron can do that what does it say about the rest of us? How much of an under achiever is Barry if all he accomplished was a law degree and some time as a community organizer before running for office?
So, for all of those who continue to ignore reality, I’ll give you a pass on calling the President a moron or related characterization the day you create $10 billion in revenue and employee at least 23,000 people. Until then you’re evidently a sub-moron by your own definition.
