Trump again shows his inability to speak in sentences, express a coherent thought
Reading the transcript of President Donald Trump's interview with a New York Times reporter provides a fresh reminder of his lack of focus, which is a frightening prospect for our country and the world.
The former leader of Trump University can't speak in complete sentences. He can't use the language to communicate any complex ideas. He lies at will and babbles at length in ways that demonstrate his ignorance, bragging all the while like Kim Jong-un.
In this single interview at his golf club, he claims to know taxes "better than the greatest CPA" and that he understands the details of "health care better than most." He said he talked 100 Congressmen into changing their minds on health care.
He says he was a great student. He says that the president of China "treated me better than anybody's ever been treated in the history of China." He says that he will win re-election in 2020 and that "all forms of media will tank if I'm not there because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes." He said he knows more about "big bills" than any other U.S. president.
He claimed credit for ending the individual mandate in Obamacare and described it with this gibberish to reporter Michael Schmidt:
"And the individual mandate is the most unpopular thing in Obamacare, and I got rid of it. You know, we gained with the individual. … You know the individual mandate, Michael, means you take money and you give it to the government for the privilege of not having to pay more money to have health insurance you don’t want. There are people who had very good health insurance that now are paying not to have health insurance. That’s what the individual mandate. … They’re not going to have to pay anymore. So when people think that will be unpopular. … It’s going to be very popular. It’s going to be very popular."
And he used the phrase "no collusion" 16 times, which can only mean that he feels cornered.
