Donald Trump's biggest flaw: He's not that bright

Donald Trump has many serious flaws, including incorrigible dishonesty, rampant narcissism, contempt for women and a fashion sense that makes him think that hairstyle of his is flattering. But nothing compares to his most prominent, crippling and incurable defect: He’s dimmer than a 5-watt bulb.

 

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was reported to have called the president a “moron” — emphasizing that term with an adjective I can’t repeat here. Forced to hold a news conference to praise the president’s intelligence, Tillerson was too honest to deny what he had said.

 

The late William T. Kelley, who taught Trump at the University of Pennsylvania, said, “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddamn student I ever had.” Tony Schwartz, the ghostwriter of “The Art of the Deal,” says Trump had “a stunning level of superficial knowledge and plain ignorance.”

Trump’s feeble-mindedness is on daily view. When an Uzbek immigrant was arrested for allegedly driving a truck down a Manhattan bike path, killing eight people, the president responded in thunderously stupid ways. First, he tweeted that he had “just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program.” If you can step it up, why didn’t you do that before?

 

He fumed that the alleged killer wanted an Islamic State flag for his hospital room. Really? The guy reportedly killed eight people, and the flag is what steams you? Trump demanded the death penalty — opening the way for the suspect’s lawyers to argue that the president has made it impossible for him to get a fair trial.

 

Trump has learned nothing from his past blunders. As a candidate, he said Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was a traitor who should be executed. Asked about the case as president, he doubled down: “I think people have heard my comments in the past.”

 

The military judge announced he would count Trump’s statement as “mitigating evidence” — which may be why he ended up giving Bergdahl no prison time. Not only was Trump’s remark unnecessary and inappropriate; it was self-defeating.

 

He’s just not bright enough to make connections between his conduct and its consequences. Trump’s travel ban has lost repeatedly in court because he has made clear he has an unconstitutional goal: shutting out Muslims because of their religion. If he had kept quiet, he might have gotten his way.

 

The evidence of his dimwittedness flows as continuously and voluminously as the Mississippi River. His tweets are studded with misspellings, random capitalizations and mystifying quotation marks.

 

He taps out tweets that flagrantly contradict what he tweeted when Barack Obama was president, making himself look ridiculous. When he holds forth on policy issues, it’s excruciatingly apparent he has no idea what he’s talking about.

 

Trump relies on a vocabulary the size of a second-grader’s. To combat opioid abuse among teens, he favors “telling them, ‘No good, really bad for you in every way.’ ” Those paper towels he tossed to a crowd in Puerto Rico were “very good towels.” He wanted to call the tax reform bill “the Cut Cut Cut Act.”

 

He pretends to be a master negotiator, but he has failed to get the Republican Congress to repeal Obamacare, enact protections for immigrants brought here illegally as children, and fund his border wall.

 

Trump tries to conceal his intellectual deficiency by insisting how smart he is. “I went to an Ivy League college,” he said last month. “I’m a very intelligent person.” He has to make such affirmations because all the evidence indicates his cranium contains an airless void.

 

I don’t mean to suggest his supporters are dumb. There are plenty of intelligent people who voted for him and plenty of stupid ones who didn’t. But the smart Trump supporters don’t hold his intellect in awe. <--Did not think there were any :mellow:

 

After Tillerson’s “moron” comment was reported, Trump said, “I guess we’ll have to compare IQ tests. And I can tell you who is going to win.”

I’m sure plenty of readers are now saying I’m the stupid one, with a brain far inferior to Trump’s. They may be right. So I put a challenge to him: We both take an IQ test, administered by an independent body, with the results to be made public.

 

This is a great chance to dazzle the world with his peerless mind. It’s a chance for him to humiliate someone in the “fake news media” with his towering intellect.

 

But I’m betting Trump will never submit to any process that would document his actual intelligence for the public to see. He’s dumb. But not that dumb. << --------yhmsn24.gif

Absolutely true.  And it makes it easy to understand why liberals are not happy with him in the White House.  (Conservatives apparently don't care about intelligence in their leaders.) 

But the fact that people would vote for him is far worse than any of Trump's moral failings.

That one disturbs me the most...several of my very good friends voted for him and now I think of them differently...

 

I don't believe half of what they say now tho they totally believe what they say.

I thought they were more street smart and were easily conned.

Some are self proclaimed Jesus freaks and why they went for Trump is beyond me.

I now know they have no clue about how the Federal government works and totally slept thru civics classes.

They are easily led...I now know their buttons and how to explain how it all works without getting into a pissing match. I save that for here :D

Bright enough to beat the smartest woman in the world. Then again, the smartest woman in the world had to cheat to beat Bernie. Maybe the smartest woman in the world is also the crappiest politician in the world, too. 

He fell into the slot..even he was dumbfounded he won. It was all about the game of winning the contest. Now he has to preform or get voted off the island...Terms Trump understands.

I was dumbfounded too. Trump took on the Republican establishment, the Clinton machine and the media and won. 

 

Amazing.

The moment a smidgen of evidence shows up that Russia effected the vote count, I’ll be sure to take it into consideration.

If one is fed bullshit long enough it can sway the opinion of folk. Misinformation swayed they vote the people bought into that bullshit and pulled the trigger for Trump or stayed home. If you want to split hairs over vote count and vote influence..fine. Also many a voting joint has zero protection from hackers and no paper trails..which are the areas that were tampered with, so that one is still up in the air. Subsequently those SAME districts scrubbed the HHDs when asked to provide back ups.

 

Conspiracy? Maybe, maybe not, but it does smell really bad and one hand fed the other which fed off another and so on.  It was not a clean race. With that said it doesn't really matter, what matters now is what are the PEOPLE going to do about it now. Fool me once kinda thing.....

 Three of my close my friends also voted for him. Two of them have said it they had to do it over again they would not vote for him. The other is sitting on the fence---undecided. I think many are starting to realize that voting for him was a mistake.

Unfortunately we have 3 more years of his gross stupidity. I hope our country can survive that

Well the tide has changed..again..it is a war on women right now. That is a fight they will now survive as even Con chicks have faced the horrors of assault..mild or not it is a daily thing. Best TrumpCo can do right now is stay out of the country, tho his stupid is all over the world stage in full view too. For giggles poke around and see what other countries are saying about him. He also looks really worn out. I do not think he will make 3 more years, not because of impeachment but I don't think he has the stamina. Will be interesting to see what excuse he digs out of his butt when he quits..This show has been canceled??  That is one line Trumperiods can hang their hats on.
