The Donald Knows How to Bring the Dumb

Right Wing Watch reviews some of Donald Trump’s dumbest Twitter rants, which reach a level of sheer stupidity rarely achieved by mere mortals. Let’s start with the first two, which require rejecting nearly all of modern science in order to make the claims:

5) Vaccination ‘Truth’


Obviously, right? Having a child with an illness makes one automatically an expert in epidemiology and pathology, granting them total understanding of the causes of that illness. That’s why they should never bother going to doctors and specialists and stuff, because they automatically know all about it by the mere fact that their child has it.

4) ‘We Need Global Warming!’

That’s pretty much a litmus test. If you think that global warming is falsified by the fact that it gets cold where you are, no one need take you seriously about anything ever again. And then there was when he claimed on election night in 2012 that Obama “lost the popular vote by a lot but won the election” and said that means we must have a revolution. In fact, Obama won the popular vote by millions of votes. The Donald didn’t bother waiting until the votes on the west coast were counted to make this inane declaration.

    He sure does.

    How does someone that willfully stupid and horrid get so rich and relatively powerful?

    Even if his POTUS run is really a sad joke.

  • composer99

    Such Trump.

    Very The Donald.


    (For those unfamiliar with this meme.)

    How does someone that willfully stupid and horrid get so rich and relatively powerful?

    Donald got his money the old-fashioned way, he inherited it. Sure he turned a smaller fortune into a larger fortune (although I do not believe his $9 billion claim), but that’s relatively easy to do when you’ve already got a bundle. He’s the classic example of someone born on third base who thinks he scored a triple.

    cptdoom “Donald got his money the old-fashioned way, he inherited it.”

    The term you’re looking for is “Meritocracy”.

  • scienceavenger

    Hopefully one positive thing that can come from Trumps public pronouncements: no one will be able to keep a straight face when saying that our capitalist society causes the smartest to get the richest.

  • carpenterman

    When we were kids, to encourage hard work and patriotism, our teachers told us, “In America, ANYONE can grow up to be President!”

    Trump believed them.

  • StevoR

    @ ^ carpenterman : And Bush Jr proved it!

    Or did he?

  • Marcus Ranum

    I can think of noone better qualified to dismantle the US Empire than Trump. The world should be cheering. ISIL should be standing up a Trump PAC. Comedians will feast for years of effortless gibes; their only competition being Trump himself, who is resolutely un-funny.

    It really seems unnecessary to point out that Trump is an idiot. I mean, water is wet. Can we move on?

  • Synfandel has an amusing (and lengthy) rundown on The Donald’s candidacy announcement.

    One has to wonder in which universe this guy lives.

    @9 And the comedy begins.

    As the owner of a Shiba Inu I must take great umbrage at attaching The Donald to this meme.

    Much anger. Such Shiba.

    MO (#4) – When it comes to the Donster — the word you’re looking for is ‘mediocracy‘…


  • Trebuchet

    Instead of POTUS, can we elect Trump POTAMUS? Or something? One internet will be awarded to the best backronym for POTAMUS.

    It hasn’t been all that many years since my net worth was greater than Trump’s. Because mine was positive. Somehow banks were falling all over themselves to lend him even more money.

  • sugarfrosted

    @15 President of the Asshole Multimillionaires [and the] Utterly Stupid.

  • sugarfrosted

    @14 It is meritocracy. I mean have you heard of Trump siblings? Of course you haven’t, he murdered them in a battle to the death so he’d get the inheritance.

    @Reginald Selkirk #9

    His smartest possible campaign strategy. Actors gotta work too, ya know. I wonder how many voters he plans to hire.
