Trump Humiliates Himself, Brags About Progress on a Bill That Doesn’t Exist

Unless you’re one of the millions of people who are still gullible enough to be a supporter of Donald Trump, odds are you’re well aware of the fact that he’s an unqualified buffoon who has absolutely no business being this country’s “president.” That’s not just me, someone who admittedly loathes Trump, saying that just to say it — it’s clearly obvious that he has no idea what he’s doing.

I don’t hesitate for a moment when I say that I really don’t believe he even knows how many members of Congress there are, let alone how our government works or how legislation becomes law. In my opinion, he’s the living embodiment of what would happen if the “top comment” from any far-right conservative blog became “president.” Despite being one of the most misinformed and ignorant people I’ve ever seen, he truly thinks he knows what he’s talking about and is smarter than those who actually do.

A great example of Trump’s idiocy can be seen in a comment he made recently where he boasted about the progress of a tax bill, stating it was “moving along in Congress, and I believe is doing very well.” He also went on to say that he felt “a lot of people will be very pleasantly surprised,” that “Republicans are working very, very hard,” and that despite the probable lack of Democratic support, he felt progress was “going very well.”

There’s just one problem: No such tax bill actually exists.

While I wouldn’t call this one of Trump’s biggest gaffes, this statement does matter. One or two small mistakes are bad enough, but when the examples keep piling up where Trump proves how absolutely clueless he is about practically everything a “president” needs to actually know, that’s a huge, and extremely embarrassing, problem for this country.

The sad truth is, he’s either completely clueless about the fact that Congress isn’t currently working on his tax bill or, as he does quite often, he blatantly lied about the fictional progress of this non-existent tax bill to make himself look better in the eyes of his supporters.

No matter which it is, neither are positive for Trump — or the country, for that matter.

While there are seemingly an endless number of reasons why Donald Trump has no business being this country’s “president,” the fact that it’s hard to tell if he’s legitimately ignorant about an issue or simply flat-out lying is a serious issue. Not only are neither one of those things good traits in a “president,” but it makes this country look incredibly weak.

When Trump constantly says things that are either completely dishonest, or prove that he doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about, every country on the Earth is watching this idiocy play out in the highest office in our land. The rest of the world’s leaders are looking at the United States being led by a bona fide imbecile. Our allies know they can’t trust him, and practically nobody respects him.

As I’ve said plenty of times before, Donald Trump is the punchline to the joke the rest of the world is using to laugh at the United States right now.
