Does Trump Know How To Drive A Car?....

I don't have a reason for asking. Just curious? Ever since I heard he thinks you need an ID to buy cereal I got to wondering if he drives.

4. Yes.

He hasnít bought cereal in a store in 50 years.

If he remembered how it worked there would be no reason to make a false statement over 99% of Americans know is false.

6. I have no doubt that the vast majority of his false statements are intentional (i.e., lies).

23. If you have shopped regularly at a grocery store and are in their system,

no ID is required for a purchase. They know whether you bounce checks. So few people write checks for groceries it's a moot point. All plastic. Trumpy might not know that -- he knows so little about anything.

3. I'm sure he drove as a young man

... and he's handy with a golf cart of course. But I doubt that he's driven a regular car since he moved to Manhattan, probably 40 years ago. That's my impression anyway.

11. Yes I understand, but Trump is from Queens

He went to school in Philly so he probably drove then, and in the early days when he worked for his Dad. He had to go around and collect quarters from all the laundry rooms in the apartment buildings, remember?

By the time he moved to Manhattan he was done with the grunge work, and I'm sure he could afford to pay a full-time driver. I dunno maybe I'm wrong. The cost of owning a car would have been negligible, I'm sure Daddy gave him his first car.

9. There's at least one "my disgusting date with Donald in the 70s" story around...

...describing how he acted in his car, so, yes.

Whether he's fit to be behind a wheel now, though, is debatable.

14. I remember one of the articles about what few of his financial records are available, having to do

with his casino business back in the 80s or so, had a listing of his assets, which included a Mercedes (at least I think it was Mercedes -- I remember it was a German car anyhow).

15. I don't know, but I lived in South Florida for many years

It's really common for NYC retirees to learn to drive in their 60s and 70s. They never used/needed a car in NYC.

16. Oh, dear god.

The thought of someone not learning to drive until 60 or 70 is genuinely scary.

There really does seem to be an optimal window of time for a person to learn to drive to be at all good at it, and it's my observation that the window closes around age 25. Which is not to say that anyone older than that can't learn to drive, but anyone I've ever known who learned to drive past age 25 was never a good driver. Actually, the ones I have known were at best minimally competent.

And speaking as one is is 70, and learned to drive in my teens, I'm quite aware that my skills aren't as terrific as they were 50 years ago.

20. I've got a friend who learned in his mid-20s

 

and itís really disconcerting to ride with him. Heís safe enough, but everything is oddly ďproceduralĒ, lacking in the natural smoothness most people have behind the wheel. Heís thinking about things the rest of us just do.

And he cannot maintain a steady speed! Itís a constant cycle of acceleration and deceleration, surging up and down in a five or six mph band where a normal driver would hold it at one point.

Parents ó teach your older teens to drive.

34. OK, this opens up a whole different subject

My oldest has the same issue you describe. She's been out with us; she's been to driving school; she has a license; but she really does not like driving. I thought "it's my weird kid." Nope. Started talking to other parents. Because of Uber/Lyft, Smart phones, texting, computers, Amazon, etc. the generation coming up has many late teens/early 20 somethings with no desire to drive. It's the damdest thing to me, since when we turned 16 , you couldn't get me or my friends to the DMV fast enough.

I don't get it.

24. According to this article

he has quite an assortment of luxury cars.

Donald Trump Misses Driving. So Would You If You Owned His Cars

In a Reuters interview on Saturday, the 45th president of the U.S. told reporters, "I like to drive. I can't drive anymore."

This won't change soon. Trump is only 100 days in, after all, and President Obama still hasnít driven a car since leaving office in January. (Even former First Lady Hillary Clinton hasn't driven since 1996.) Instead, Trump rides around in a Cadillac limousine nicknamed ďThe Beast.Ē

White House representatives did not respond to requests for comment for this story, but when the leader of the free world says he misses the road, you know he must have had some great things to drive. So we did a little digging, and yep, he has owned some truly special cars in the past. Hereís what we know about Trumpís toys.

27. He cares more about activities in the back seat than the driver's seat, I'm sure

I imagine if he does drive a car, it involves multiple road rage incidents on every outing.

We know he doesn't know how to open the door to a bus. These actions are on video.

I believe 2015. But after he started the racist dialogue he was uninvited.

32. The "ID to buy cereal" has to do with writing checks

It shows that Trump is out of touch with retail consumers.

I'm one of the dinosaurs who still buys everything via check. Many retailers don't ask for ID anymore due to electronic fund transfer.

Of course people can buy cereal with cash, debit or credit cards. (I won't go there with EBT)

My grandmother never had a driver's license and she had to pay cash for everything.

She had her weekly trip to the bank to get cash.

33. I've seen video of him driving his golf cart on the putting greens of his courses.

which should be enough to send him to jail right there.
Thats just wrong.
