Trump Tosses Another Word Salad

Trump Tosses Another Word Salad July 24, 2017

Donald Trump may prefer McDonald’s or KFC to eat, but he sure tosses a mean word salad (and no, I don’t mean Putin’s). These quotes are all from his interview with the New York Times last week. See if you can find anything remotely coherent in them.


So preexisting conditions are a tough deal. Because you are basically saying from the moment the insurance, you’re 21 years old, you start working and you’re paying $12 a year for insurance, and by the time you’re 70, you get a nice plan. Here’s something where you walk up and say, “I want my insurance.” It’s a very tough deal, but it is something that we’re doing a good job of.

That is just plain unintelligible gibberish. It kinda sorta sounds like he’s describing life insurance, not health insurance, but one has nothing at all to do with the other. This is why he hasn’t been out there really trying to sell the bills in Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare, because he literally has no idea what he’s talking about on health care. None. He’s sure it’s going to be “beautiful” and “stupendous,” of course, but has no idea how or why.

Here he is talking about Napoleon:

“His one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.”

Uh, Donald…your 7th grade history teacher would like to have a talk with you.

And on the Russian invasion of Crimea and actions in Syria:

“Crimea was gone during the Obama administration, and he gave, he allowed it to get away. You know, he can talk tough all he wants, in the meantime he talked tough to North Korea. And he didn’t actually. He didn’t talk tough to North Korea. You know, we have a big problem with North Korea. Big. Big, big. You look at all of the things, you look at the line in the sand. The red line in the sand in Syria. He didn’t do the shot. I did the shot. Had he done that shot, he wouldn’t have had — had he done something dramatic, because if you remember, they had a tremendous gas attack after he made that statement. Much bigger than the one they had with me.”

He’s just babbling. It’s completely incoherent babbling. And for some bizarre reason, he thinks he’s really good at this kind of thing. It’s truly pathological.
