My President Is Incredibly Stupid

Tuesday was another day full of tidbits in the news, many of which didn’t receive enough coverage because they were overshadowed by other events. I’d like to briefly focus on three of them which prove that (as if many of us needed additional proof) Donald Trump is incredibly stupid. Let’s explore.

By American standards I have an average life. That tells you how good life in America is relative to most of the world. Many Americans or their not far removed ancestors came here escaping something.
