No, Donald Trump isn’t crazy, but he’s not very smart, either

BY LEONARD PITTS, JR.



Dear Republicans:

So how much more will it take? What else do you need to see?

Seriously: What Rubicon must yet be crossed, what crisis must be borne, what tragedy must befall, before you stop smiling queasy, nothing-to-see-here smiles, stand like grown-up women and men and say, finally, that enough is enough?

You are posing for history here. The portrait is not flattering.

How much longer will you stand in partisan solidarity to protect a guy who would not walk across the street to protect you? Have you no loyalties deeper than party? To what, exactly, do you pledge allegiance? You need to decide soon because, contrary to McConnell’s pious wish for less “drama,” this will not get better.

People often ask if Trump is “crazy” or engaged in some deep strategy invisible to mere mortals. But they are overthinking him. All evidence suggests the answer is actually simple: Donald Trump is stupid.

No, not “ignorant.” Ignorance can be fixed. Trump is profoundly stupid. Yes, he has a certain native cunning. But he is simply not smart.

Compounding the problem, he is incredibly arrogant. Given the power of the presidency, that’s a supremely dangerous combination. As proof, consider the damage he has done in just four months. Then consider that at least 44 more lie ahead. Your course of action, if you have even a molecule of courage, integrity, or country love, should be obvious.

Impeach him now.
