Trump’s Comments on Giuliani Show How Ignorant Someone Has to Be to Believe Anything He Says

I wish I had more respect for supporters of Donald Trump — I really do. But I simply can’t respect them when they continue to believe this “president” is an honest and trustworthy person.

Just a couple of days ago Rudy Giuliani, speaking on behalf of Trump (supposedly), gave a rather jaw-dropping interview where he contradicted several things this “president” has said pertaining to the scandal surrounding Stormy Daniels. Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Giuliani confirmed Trump reimbursed his lawyer Michael Cohen for the payment to Daniels, though he absurdly tried to claim that this “president” didn’t know anything about the payment until very recently.

Within a few hours of that interview, Trump’s Twitter account sent out several tweets confirming this, though the tweets claimed the payment had nothing to do with his campaign.

So, pretty simple, right?

Giuliani finally told some truth about the payment (that Daniels was paid and the money eventually came from Trump) and Trump, himself, confirmed he repaid his lawyer for hush money that was paid to her just before the 2016 election.

Then came Friday when Trump contradicted his Thursday tweets and Giuliani’s story (that he had confirmed with those tweets), saying, “He started yesterday. He’ll get his facts straight. He’s a great guy.”

In other words, what Giuliani told Hannity, comments he confirmed at that time Trump knew he was going to make, is no longer accurate — even though Trump’s Thursday tweets confirmed what Giuliani said during that interview was true! 

This is why I can’t respect Trump supporters. How can millions of people so eagerly back someone who treats them like idiots?

If Trump actually respected the intelligence of his supporters, he’d never try to pull this type of preposterous nonsense.

However, since he’s counting on the millions of proud Trumpsters to be ignorant and gullible, he knows he can get away with absurd lies and contradictions such as what we’ve seen over the last couple of days because he knows they’re going to believe everything he says.

If someone wants to be a Trump supporter, fine, go ahead. But, please, don’t insult my intelligence by trying to tell me:

  • Trump didn’t have an affair with Daniels.
  • Michael Cohen made the payment without any sort of authorization from Trump.
  • That this payment, made just before the 2016 election, had nothing to do with his campaign.
  • That Trump didn’t know anything about it until recently.

Just admit he’s an adulterer, he tried to coverup an affair, got caught, is trying to lie his way out of it — and they simply don’t care.

Sure, I’ll still think they’re foolish for supporting Trump, but I’ll at least give them credit for admitting the truth about him being a horrible human being and the fact they simply don’t care.

That’s what infuriates me more than anything: His supporters acting like the rest of us are as naive as they are.

Especially following days like Friday where Donald Trump denied what Rudy Giuliani said was true when, just about 24 hours earlier, several tweets sent out on his Twitter account confirmed what was said during that now infamous Fox News interview was, in fact, true.

If none of this makes sense, it shouldn’t, because it doesn’t.

This is all another prime example of how ignorant someone has to be to believe anything Donald Trump says.
