Holy hell. I knew that Trump was dumb, but…wow. I’ve written plenty of times that his brain is mostly mush, but after last night, that may be too kind of a description. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the President of the United States.
Not only did we learn this week that Trump lacks object permanence, but he cannot pronounce a word that Merriam-Webster classifies as one of the 20% most used words in the English language. Trump is functionally a toddler. We are all this amonym—anon—amnoun—unknown man making faces behind the president.
This hilarious, too-candid guy behind Trump was deemed an unsuitable background prop by the Trump choreographers. He was replaced (see next tweet) with someone who could actually feign enthusiasm for Dear Leader.
