    FLA GOP'r stuns panel, says TRUMP is not smart enough to be President...

    I've been saying it all along. He has the patina of a smart man because he was raised in wealth and went to good boarding schools and college. (Though, wow many UofPENN alum signed on to disavow Trump as 'fellow graduate' at Penn?).

    As I listened to him more over the course of this campaign, I kept saying, this is NOT a smart guy.

    “There’s a bigger issue, whether this president is intellectually qualified to be President of the United States,” Jolly said.

    Harlow seemed taken aback by Jolly’s statement.

    “You’re saying he’s not smart enough?” she asked him. “That’s quite a charge.”
    Jolly went on to explain that Trump has very little knowledge about policy, and that he’s relying on cable news shows to inform him about the details of legislation he’s already endorsed.

    “I think he’s learning about his own health care bill listening to you and Chris in the morning,” he told her. “He does not practice in details, nor understands the finer points of domestic or foreign policy. When he throws out a wiretap charge, what does that mean? We know he’s lying about that, but he doesn’t understand what a FISA court is. He doesn’t understand that he j

    Oooooh! I think we know the difference between thinking it and saying it OUT LOUD on national TV. And from a REP, no less.

    This is tweet bait. That is, someone wants to be the subject of the president's next tweet? Has anyone heard of David Jolly? No? Wait a week.
