I didn't know whether to put this in humor or this thread, but it is all true (although told in a snarky style) so here it goes:

5 Ways Trump Is, Unfortunately, A Genius

Quote
As the 2020 presidential election marches ever closer, the flood of daily Trump news we have to deal with will escalate into a tsunami. To help keep everyone's heads above the waves, we need to refresh ourselves on the same obnoxious tricks he's been pulling since 2016. Trump isn't exactly a master manipulator -- he's shot himself in the foot a few too many dozen times for that -- but he has a raw understanding of power that produces endless, exhausting distractions everyone still falls for.

FWIW i want to note that this has changed in the last couple of weeks. He is no more narrating the public debate. The impeachment hearings and the Dems now do.

I tend to hope they broke the cycle.

Trump wonders why the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage wasn’t celebrated 'a long time ago'

The POTUS is as dumb stupid as bread.

You mean stupid as bread. I knew a deaf and dumb woman and she was pretty smart.

Other colloquialisms appropriate to the occasion ...

Dumber than dirt

As fucked-up as a football bat
“There are three classes of people: those who see. Those who see when they are shown. Those who do not see.” ― Leonardo da Vinci

Insensible before the wave so soon released by callous fate. Affected most, they understand the least, and understanding, when it comes, invariably arrives too late

This is not a joke. I thought this must be a hoax or something. This can't be real, right? Well, the POTUS is really that stupid. -.-

Where did he get the Latin from? :)
Wasn't it clear back then, during the hearing, that Trump knew he got caught?
Meanwhile the NY Times sensationally titles:
Trump Knew of Whistle-Blower Complaint When He Released Aid to Ukraine
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/26/us/politics/trump-whistle-blower-complaint-ukraine.html

Google image search on my avatar image gives "wood". In fact it is the lower part of David Hilbert's tombstone.

Engelhardt begins to understand: Trump presidency as as media production

"since 2016, Donald Trump has been covered in our ever-shrinking yet ever-expanding media universe like no other individual in history from Nebuchadnezzar’s moment to our own."

"He fills the screen. Every screen. All the time."

http://www.tomdispatch.com/post/176634/tomgram%3A_engelhardt%2C_which_hunt_who_knows_which_witch/

Engelhardt is a sharp observer bu it took him a while to get here.

Trump being a fucking reality-TV host didn't tip him off?

Sure about the sharp observer thingy, Sidd? ;)
