Donald Trump: Genius or Moron?
I have no interest in keeping anyone in suspense: he’s a moron. Is he a competent businessman? Many people believe so. Is he a knowledgable man? Many people believe that, too. None of that, however, excludes him from being a moron.
For those of you still reading, here’s why:
1) “Nobody has more respect for women than I do”
How could anyone, much less a presidential candidate, think it was a good idea to say this? Trump, in response to those outraged by his lewd comments, essentially stated that he respects women more than the rest of us. Yet, how is it even possible to make such an assertion when so much evidence of his sexism has been uncovered?
Frankly, it is insulting to anyone who actually respects women that Trump could make such a comment. Not only is he lying, he’s directly stating that he’s better at respecting women than everyone else. That, alone, speaks volumes of his character (and is actually right on par with it as well).
P.S. When he made this statement during a presidential debate, the audience laughed.
2) Thinking the entire election process is rigged
Barack Obama put it best when he said, “I’ve never heard of somebody complaining about being cheated before the game was over, or before the score is even tallied,” Obama said. “So my suggestion would be go out there and try to win the election. If Mr. Trump is up 10 or 15 points on Election Day and ends up losing, then maybe he can raise some questions.”
Many of us can acknowledge that the media has been far from unbiased throughout the general election season. Yet, to label the election itself as “rigged” seems childish or premature. After all, what if he wins? Actually, it looks like he already addressed that: if he wins, everything is legitimate; if not, it is rigged. That, right there, is the attitude of a true adult.
3) His own campaign knew nothing of the “locker room talk” until we did.
Although his campaign did their best to play along, Trump failed to inform anyone working for him that he had told Billy Bush he can “grab [women] by the pussy”.
When Trump’s campaign manager was questioned on this issue, she focused on sexual assault allegations against Bill Clinton along with Hillary Clinton’s ties to said allegations. What she completely failed to focus on, however, were the actions of Trump. Obviously, the campaign was unprepared to talk about their own candidate.
4) He lived a life as a celebrity and then expected to become president
Let’s face it: celebrities and politicians lead very different lives. Where Clinton has built her ground in political achievements (no matter how small they may truly be), Trump has built his ground in real estate and reality television. Unfortunately for Trump, even the television industry is rigged, which may explain why he decided to move on to politics.
Here’s a message to Trump: When Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino from TV show Jersey Shore used the very idea of you being president as a joke during a roast against you, Trump, you should have retired the idea altogether. It would have saved you your most prized possession: your pride.
It is not totally absurd to believe that Trump is a smart man; after all, nobody is claiming that it is easy to be nominated for President of the United States. Frankly, Trump deserves a pat on the back for accomplishing a seemingly impossible feat. However, it is probably best that that ‘pat on the back’ does not translate into a vote, considering he really is a bit of a moron.
