Donald Trump is intellectually lazy, someone who cannot be bothered to learn enough about a topic to go beyond broad generalities. If you watched the debates, you will notice that in response to questions that involve detailed knowledge of specifics, he tends, like Sarah Palin, to wander all over the lot, spewing out a lot of words in run-on sentences that convey little.
After the last debate, Antonio French, running for mayor St. Louis, sent out the following Tweet: “Trump’s foreign policy answers sound like a book report from a teenager who hasn’t read the book. “Oh, the grapes! They had so much wrath!”
This immediately spawned a rush of other Trump book report Tweets under the hashtag #TrumpBookReport. Here are some that I enjoyed:
Macbeth. Tremendous king. Made Scotland great again. But those witches. Came in from Syria. Nasty women. Europe is a mess.
It was the worst of times and the worst of times, OK? The worst. A disaster.
Anne Frank. What a loser. And she got caught. I like refugees that weren’t caught. Okay?
There was much ado, believe me. So much ado. Many people are saying how much ado there was. And about what? Nothing!
NOBODY, I mean NOBODY, has more pride than me. And NOBODY has more prejudice. I have so much pride. And so much prejudice.
Sleeping Beauty? The Prince just started kissing her. Didn’t even ask. When you’re a prince they let you do it.
Les Miserables, of course they are miserable, the inner city is a mess folks, believe me. People stealing bread everywhere.
John 3:16 – Worst deal of all time. Total disaster. We need better salvation deals. Gave up his only begotten son. Sad!
To Kill a Mockingbird? Nobody kills Mockingbirds better than me. I will kill the families of Mockingbirds. Believe me.
I never touched Mona Lisa. Believe me, she would not be my first choice. Don’t know what da Vinci saw in her. Stupid smile.
Juliet. Such a nasty woman. She made Romeo kill himself. And believe me he could have done better. Look at her.
We’re gonna catch so much rye, you won’t believe it. We’re bringing those rye catching jobs to America.
