I don’t hesitate in calling Donald Trump a moron, and I’m not saying that just because I don’t like him. I truly and honestly feel, based on everything I’ve seen and heard, that he’s not a very bright person. He has some level of “street smarts,” sure, and he’s a masterful con man, but Trump is not an intelligent person — which is ironic because he often likes to call other people stupid, foolish, or dumb.
As they say, people often project who they are onto others — and Trump’s done that plenty of times.
While there are plenty of examples I could use to support my belief that Trump’s an idiot, a tweet he sent out on Monday was one of the best examples I’ve seen yet that sort of encompasses what an absolute imbecile he is:
The two fake news polls released yesterday, ABC & NBC, while containing some very positive info, were totally wrong in General E. Watch!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 24, 2017
First, considering he lost the general election by three million votes, the polls weren’t really wrong. Based upon most margins of error, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by about the margin they predicted she would — even in Fox News’ poll.
Sadly, that’s not even the most idiotic part of this tweet.
In one sentence, Trump calls two polls from ABC and NBC “fake news polls” — then immediately says they contained “some very positive information.” But if they’re “fake,” as he claims they are, then why should anyone care about the “positive information”?
For the record, the ABC-Washington Post poll showed only 42 percent of Americans approving of the job he’s doing as “Commander-in-Chief,” while only 40 percent of respondents in the NBC News and the Wall Street Journal polls felt that way.
This is not how life works, though Trump and his supporters clearly think it is. You don’t get to call something “FAKE NEWS!,” then cite it later, or cherry pick information from a poll you say isn’t credible when there’s some positive information you want to use to promote your agenda.
Except that’s exactly what Trump does!
Recently, CNN’s Jake Tapper called out his administration for frequently claiming the network is “FAKE NEWS!,” while having no problem citing a story from them whenever it’s positive for Trump. You’ve even seen the Trump administration do this with the monthly jobs reports they once called “fake” or “phony” that they now have no problem trying to take credit for. Meanwhile, he’s had almost nothing to do with these reports as they’re clearly a continuation of the success we experienced during Barack Obama’s eight years in office.
None of this is surprising. As I’ve said countless times before, this is who Trump is — a con man. He’s going to call anything negative against him “FAKE NEWS!,” while spinning anything remotely positive to make himself look good. He’ll happily take all the credit for anything good that happens, while blaming anyone and everyone but himself for everything bad.
And this tweet is a perfect example of that. Donald Trump called two credible polls “fake,” while also telling people that they should trust the “positive information” in the very same polls he said weren’t real. What’s sad is that it probably never even occurred to him how ridiculous (and contradictory) this tweet was.
That’s a stupid man who’s well aware that many of his supporters are gullible enough to believe anything he says.
