Those aren't leading questions at all.

Granted Trump is 73 year old, and has never indicated a willingness to learn or read anything.

If he had a brain hemorrhage, and blood began recirculating to his empathy region of his grain matter, perhaps he should check out the audio book version of this

freitasm:This President is so dumb, almost impossible to believe.


In this almost unique case, he actually read a speech from a teleprompter.

Blame his "brightest and best " speech-writers.

Did you notice he was speaking very nasal? Probably snorted Adderall again

The Washington Post - Trump plays dumb about his long history with undocumented workers

 

July 5 at 4:15 PM

 


President Trump would like you to know that though he is one of the world’s great businessmen and is possessed, in his own words, of a “very, very large brain,” he cannot be held responsible for employment practices at the clubs he owns because he has no idea what goes on there ...

 

Standing outside the White House before departing for his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., reporters asked Trump about his knowledge of undocumented workers employed there and at his other clubs.

 

Well, that I don’t know. Because I don’t run it,” Trump said. “But I would say this, probably every club in the United States has that, because it seems to me, from what I understand, a way that people did business.

 

“A way that people did business.” Ah yes, “people,” who “did business” in this fashion at some point in the past.

 

So he is simultaneously arguing that everybody does it and that he knows nothing about it.

 

Of course, the truth is that Trump absolutely did business this way. ...

 

A few highlights:

 

  • Trump Tower in New York was built in part by undocumented Polish laborers who later sued Trump, citing “nightmare memories of backbreaking 12-hour shifts and of being cheated with 200 other undocumented Polish immigrants out of meager wages and fringe benefits.” As one put it, “We worked in horrid, terrible conditions. … We were frightened illegal immigrants and did not know enough about our rights.”

  • Trump Model Management, the modeling agency Trump created, brought in foreign models and instructed them to lie to customs officials and claim they were tourists when in fact they were coming to work, according to a Mother Jones investigation. The models were housed in squalid apartments for which Trump charged them exorbitant rent, leaving them with minuscule pay for the work they were doing.

  • At Mar-a-Lago, Trump regularly hires foreign workers to be cooks, waiters and housekeepers, claiming he simply can’t find Americans to do the work. But he seems to try as hard as possible not to find Americans, doing the bare minimum required by law to fill the positions before looking abroad. He takes out two small ads in the Palm Beach Post, to which an applicant can reply only by mail or fax, not in person, online or by phone.

When the rain knocked out Trump's teleprompter, Trump had to use his (for lack of a better word) "brain":

He had the US 18th century revolutionary army taking over airports and army going to the air.

Lots of tweets, including the always funny Star Trek star George Takei: "Apparently we took New York's La Guardia Airport from the Brits in 1776 and have been trying to give it back for 243 years."

“Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over airports, it did everything it had to do.

 

And at Fort McHenry, under the rockets’ red glare, had nothing but victory.

 

When dawn came, the star-spangled banner waved defiant.”

This survey was actually published by Trump's campaign:

 

 

 

Risky move. Any sensible voter'd be happier with all the second options.

 

 





Any fool can make money, but it takes a special person to earn the respect of respectable people.

Dementia?

 

 

Nah, you need a brain for that. This is just what happens when someone with no filters is allowed to say whatever passes through his goldfish awareness. Think of the sewage spewing into Lake Taupo plus the landfill dumped on the west coast beaches and you have a pretty good analogy. Faeces, plastic wrappings, dirty nappies, rotten fish, old newspapers, every random piece of useless rubbish you can think of, all mixed together and gushing out in one big chaotic stream of consciousness, or whatever passes for consciousness in the Trump black hole. Of course there were giant gorillas in biplanes swatting the British off the Empire State Building during the American revolution. Someone from Fox said they saw it in a film so it must be true.

Executive Summary:

 

f***ing moron with vast inherited wealth (which he wasted)
+
narcissistic personality disorder, amoral serial liar, totally incompetent
+
failed career conman / showman / businessman with criminal / Russian connections
+
dementia? (like his father). Even morons can develop dementia.

Forbes: Trump Is Falling Almost 1 Million Jobs Short Vs. Obama

Forbes:Trump entered office on January 20, 2017, and starting with February 2017 he has been President for 29 months. Total job growth during that time has been 5.613 million or 194,000 per month with those results being helped by the tax cut.

Working back from January 2017, Obama’s last month in office, there had been 6.423 million jobs added or 221,000 per month. The difference for the 29 months is 810,000 more jobs or 27,000 more per month than Trump.

Should have prefaced this with "Yes, we know everyone knows this"

 

I love the bit that he was over awed with royal pomo, but its was still all about self interest
