    If you can't link to Obama referring to himself as the "chosen one", you have nothing to say!!!! Hello, you missed the point COMPLETELY! The point is that trump is a narcissistic (very likely clinically) buffoon, not that there aren't whacko's on both sides.

    Reagan was a genius. Our standard of living has boomed since Reagan removed the economic cement shoes of unions.

    Even if that was his intent (very doubtful) it's hardly any better. So we either have a narcissistic POS or a juvenile troll for potus. yay.

    Ok I just watched the clip - and you are wrong. Full stop. He wasn't mocking anyone! What kind of fool would believe that trump just dropped in an obscure reference to obama completely out of the blue just to troll 50% of the country? Unless there is some discussion of obama that I didn't hear, the idea that he was trolling is just ad hoc bullshit.
    Trumpsters are good at inventing explanations out of thin air.

    You are incorrect. Smart people do stupid things. In some ways, he is very smart. Socially, he is on the mentally challenged side. Just like the majority of Americans on both sides of the isle.

    Today there is video being shown on TV made in 2011 where Dirty Donald admits he gives himself IMAGINARY AWARDS and makes public pronouncements that he won an award that DOES NOT EXIST except in his feeble mind???He has evidently been doing this for years.

    You cannot be simultaneously smart and stupid. Can you link to anything trump has said that would lead you to think he's "very smart" in any way?

    Memes are the preferred choice for those who want others to do their thinking for them. If you are waiting for a win, it will never come. If you want success, you will pursue it with vigor.

    All awards are imaginary. The only value is what you perceive it to be. This one is for you:

    Trump doesn't do sarcasm. He doesn't even understand it. That would require intellect.

    Lets just say, for arguments sake, that trump wasn't making a reference to obama. Would it change your opinion of him?

    The presidents before him buried their heads in the sand. The China problem was just too big and difficult a behemoth to even attempt to address. As a businessman DT just couldn't let this raging problem continue, he felt "chosen" for such an enormous task. Not chosen by God but by the circumstances he finds himself in and by the people who put him in that position.

    You are incorrect. Intelligence has many facets. Many highly intelligent people are socially retarded. Trump behaves like the average American. Sadly, we deserve him.

    Trump is a combination of Mussolini and Rufus T. Firefly.

    Yes, you actually can. I'm not saying this defines Trump, but a person can be a genius in one field and ignorant in another. People usually make that fallacy that talent in one area will apply to all other similar areas. But a very good, accomplished general practitioner would probably not be the best surgeon and vice versa.

    Why does everyone concentrate so much on Trump as if he matters? You really think he's in charge of anything?

    That claim calls for the operation of the mind and is false. I can read minds and can tell you that he understands sarcasm.

    What I meant by that statement is that a smart person would not do or say something that is logically inconsistent. It's kind of the definition of intelligent and it eliminates trump from the category.

    You are incorrect. "Smart" is a general term and can be defined many ways.

    There's book smart, and street smart, and smart ass. There's smart cars, smart phones, and PetSmart. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There's uh, smart-kabobs, smart creole, smart gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple smarts, lemon smarts, coconut smarts, pepper smarts, smart soup, smart stew..........

    Ok but which "smart" bucket does trump go in? Seems like he only fits into the dumb ass, dumb phone, dumb waiter, dumb tv, dumb car, dumb creole, chicken fried stupid, stupid is as stupid does categories.
