16. You know....

Taking the time to read the material before you just start winging it in public (without his reading glasses too) might just help.

Yesterday he dry read what I thought was the healthcare plan but it turned out to just be ramblings about several topics. The speech writing is terrible too. That doesn’t help either.

30. Agree. But can't help but think about what he did about college

He ONLY wanted to learn about one thing - commercial RE. Like we would get the context - Sequoia and Yosemite. Related. It's like he may never even heard of Yosemite.

33. If it's not about him he doesn't care

No he may have never heard of Yosemite. Still reading through it beforehand if only so as not to give the “yeah whatever” impression would help. I guess he was busy with Executive Time.

34. Yes. He doesn't care. He has got to be one of the strangest

mix of crazy and sane and perverted and psychologically defective people ever to exist. Colleges should have a degree for it in the future.

36. He's probably heard of it, but never read its name in print...

...so he has no mental connection between the spelling and pronunciation.

8. And don't forget Rex Tillerson, who added a famous expletive before the "moron."



Trump does bear one distinction. He's been called a moron by more subordinates than any other president in American history.

On reflection, Kelly might have called Trump "an idiot".

25. There is a difference

According to British legal stature, an idiot is an individual with an IQ of less than 20, an imbecile has an IQ of between 20 and 49, and a moron an IQ between 50 and 69. Cretins are specifically persons with a deformity or mental retardation caused by a thyroid deficiency; cretinism is now more commonly called hyperthyroidism. Idoit isderived from the Greek for "private person" (as in idiosyncracy); moron is from the Greek for "foolish"; imbecile is a construction from a Latin phrase meaning "without a stick"; cretin comes, via the French, from the word "Christian" and implies a holy person - God's fool" as it were.

I'm going with idiot.

14. I have a t-shirt with that

There's a gift shop in SF next to a synagogue, and they have t-shirts with nature graphics of Yosemite that say, "Yo, Semites!"

It's amusing.

You'd think he'd get Yosemite correct from Looney Tunes.
