What we "humans" are like: Donald J. Trump's debate performance was truly amazing. Suggested reading:
In this morning's featured editorial, the Washington Post details Trump's astounding cluelessness, his "ludicrous assertions," about an array of foreign policy matters.
In this essay at Vox, Ezra Klein explains how clueless Trump is about NAFTA, and about trade in general. (Key statement: "It’s a simple fact that none of this is true.")
In this column in today's New York Times, Jim Dwyer explains how clueless Trump is about stop-and-frisk, and about the whole recent history of crime in New York City.
Trump's cluelessness is astounding. It extends to a wide array of deeply serious topics. A great many misstatements and misconceptions are waiting to be untangled. And what is being discussed on cable? Whether it was nice, twenty years ago, to call a young woman "Miss Piggy."
Answer: No, it wasn't nice! But Anderson Cooper would crawl on his knees over broken glass for the chance to spend hours with ludicrous guests discussing this powerful topic. What will Kayleigh say?
Just for the record, it wasn't nice to call that young woman "Miss Piggy." It also wasn't nice to call her "Miss Housekeeping."
This morning, Mika was pretending to be extremely upset about the fact that Trump did that. Of course, she kissed his ascot all last year. What did she think her idol was doing during the birther years?
The hustlers and grabbers you see on TV are terrible, horrible people. Meanwhile, the gods are laughing about how stupid we are as they lounge on their hill.
We'll also have fun with this: Meanwhile, Howard Dean to the rescue—to the rescue of Trump. The gods are laughing very hard at how unimpressive we are.
