Too Stupid To Be President!

” One of the area’s where a stupid President could do a lot of damage is in foreign policy. As we watch Trump deny the hacking of his Russian friends and most recently taunt North Korea by twitter. It should be dawning on even his staunch supporters that this idiot is making the world a more dangerous place.”

Big Dummy

We’ve likely had some stupid Presidents in the history of the nation. I’m sure we’ve had President’s before that were assholes. Never before though has one worn his stupidity and asshole nature as a badge of honor. There are so many examples but recently he’s talked about discarding the use of computers and instead using couriers. How could that possibly go wrong.

What I don’t think we’ve had to this degree are the number of surrogates who step forward after every Trump miscue to proclaim what a genius he is.



In some ways the Presidency is a relatively weak institution. The President can’t arbitrarily do a whole lot of things, he requires consent from Congress. One of the area’s where a stupid President could do a lot of damage is in foreign policy. As we watch Trump deny the hacking of his Russian friends and most recently taunt North Korea by twitter. It should be dawning on even his staunch supporters that this idiot is making the world a more dangerous place. In the last few months he’s said he’d attack Iranian small boats for making gestures at Navy Ships. He’s praised Russian for what any previous administration would have denounced. He’s criticized friends and allies and had his children in the room with foreign leaders that his family business is doing deals with. His answer is that “the President can’t legally have a conflict of interest.”



Republicans in Congress know he has no actual policies of his own. They’re more than happy to step in with their own policies which are the polar opposite of what Trump said he would do. Nobody believes his tax returns will ever be seen and it’s doubtful he’ll ever divest himself from his company. He tried to shut down his charity rather than face a fraud investigation but the Attorney General of New York wasn’t having it.

Assuming America has had stupid President’s before… we survived. We’re now testing the limits on just how stupid a person can be which he reminds us with every tweet. Then we get his surrogates and Republican leaders telling us he’s brilliant. Can we get just one little boy to point out the Emperor has no clothes? Or maybe Fred Sanford to call him a “big dummy!”

  1. We’ve known he was not only scarily stupid but very dangerous, long before the election. I’ve said GWB was not the brightest bulb but he was not hate-filled, maliciously petty, childish like the current president-elect.#GodHelpUsAll.


    1. The normal protections don’t apply. This Republican House and Senate has already gotten down on their knees to Trump. There may be a back-up plan to get rid of him for Pence if he gets too out of hand.

      In some respects Pence would be worse. While Trump is an idiot with no agenda. Pence has a number of specific policies he would enact with the help of a gleeful Congress. #GodHelpUsAll indeed!

  2. Replying from the UK.
    Brexit and Trump. Who would have thought it? Apparently a few people are saying they did; it would be interesting to look back over the last 18 months’ commentaries to see who said what, if we weren’t of course all wondering just what happens in the future.
    Looking from over here in the UK it would seem that President-Elect Trump is a product of a section of the community, he is the embodiment of their wishes; something of a maverick and someone not linked any party machine. At the risk of being shredded by historians there are comparisons with Zachary Taylor (if you leave out the military service).
    Thus it remains to be seen if President Trump will become the product of the office, as pressures from the political machinery and the voter bases (and the US has many) build up. So far he has had the freedom of the candidate and then the heady time as President Elect. In this shrill era of a bewildering variety of news and opinion outlets his tenure will be under scrutiny and those around with their own fortunes linked to his might well try to take control.
    In conclusion, there is also the possible factor of those who support him now being very disappointed if he cannot deliver, which taking into account the above problems might well weigh in on him.
    Democracy is always a peculiar and transitory element in Life, you never know where things will go.
    Best wishes for 2017


    1. Thank you for your considered response. I think there is much in common with the American election and the Brexit vote. Many on both sides of the pond are still hoping they’ll somehow be undone.
      I’m certain establishment Republicans will become frustrated with Trump soon enough because although he knows nothing, he won’t willingly go along with their plans. They may well impeach him eventually to get to a more willing partner in Mike Pence. Their base unfortunately will see that as betrayal and Trump would fight any attempt to remove him by stoking an uprising. We are living in those interesting times someone once wished for.
      Best wishes to you as well!

      1. I would have preferred neither, however a result is a result and must be abided by; whether events meld those results into something else remains to be seen.
        I think that yours is a very plausible scenario, though I fear that the ordinary Americans of all political stripes would get hurt as these essentially rich folk play their games (btw I’m a UK hard-left socialist).
        Whereas not a model president an Eisenhower sort would have possibly been preferable, cool hands and a tendency not to get drawn to one side or another.
        There again LBJ the consummate fixer; as long as there were no wars to challenge the ego..
        Oh well, we shall see.
