Is He Really This Stupid?


Today's Times, and no doubt other media outlets, reports on Trump's interest in reneging on the country's sovereign debt. After all, it's the way, he's always run his business, welshing on his obligations whenever he can. By his logic:

 “I’ve borrowed knowing that you can pay back with discounts,” he said. He added, “Now we’re in a different situation with the country, but I would borrow knowing that if the economy crashed, you could make a deal.”

To anyone with an 8th grade education, the implications of the United States forfeiting its two centuries old reputation for fully honoring it's obligations are obvious, or they should be. Not so, apparently, to the soon-to-be Republican nominee for president.

The Times analysis of such a mind boggling stupid statement, is kind, to put it mildly. Maybe we should keep a running scorecard if the number of statements this vermin-described-as-a-human-being makes that disqualify him for the presidency. My guess he'll average one every other day from now till November.
