    Trump and The Problem of Militant Ignorance

    It is pathetic that Trump didn't know how complicated health care is or that the president of China had to explain history to him for him to understand that China's relationship to NK isn't as simple as he thought. But Trump's ignorance is dangerous and it's especially scary when he advertises to our adversaries that he's so ignorant.

    What is key though is to understand that this is not just ignorance. Ignorance is just the first stage of Trumpís fairly advanced problem. He is not only ignorant but clearly unaware of his level of ignorance. This is compounded by a seeming inability to understand that everyone else isnít equally ignorant to him. Those of us who are parents know the wonder of discovery experienced by small children. They find out there were things such as dinosaurs or close primate relatives called lemurs. As loving parents we indulge them, sometimes feigning ignorance of things we actually already knew to support a childís joy in discovery.

    But Donald Trump is a 70 year old man. And not a terribly nice man.


    His ignorance is not endearing. We donít need to lie to him to make him feel good about himself. Still it is good to understand his condition. Ignorance is just lack of information. But thereís something wrong with Trumpís brain Ė maybe cognitive, perhaps simple entitlement or just broad spectrum derp Ė which appears to make it genuinely impossible not to project his own ignorance onto everybody else.

    YOU THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE LEARNED that actually knowing shit and being educated should be on their list of considerations you should consider before voting for a person? Do you think BEING BORN RICH ISN"T ENOUGH OF A QUALIFICATION TO BE PRESIDENT has sunk in to people that voted for Trump yet.

    Yet you forget about the low information crowd that gave us Obama. Now Trump has to fix what Obama did

    Enough of the crying and whining. The best America could do was a Trump v. Clinton match-up. Clinton got rejected. If you want a different outcome next time, tell the Dems to field a better candidate.
