on trump - incompetent or capable?
(Following the recent publication of a book by Michael Wolff critical of the POTUS,
responding to points raised by a correspondent.)
Is he a genius, then?
I have seen a large number of definitions of genius. By several, he would be. For instance, Donald Trump is clearly far brighter than Obama or Hillary Clinton.
Note that many
among the media idiocracy worship such empty vessels as these two.
There are those that believe that they will be thought to
be 'a genius' because they pretend to a Mensa badge and an
'A' level! Genius requires more than being able to pass tests.
I reckon Trump is at least in the 150+ IQ range. That makes him no Einstein, but also
no slouch by any judgement.
Here is analysis I wrote almost exactly a year ago:
compare and contrast: two current presidents of the usa (2016/7)
A very large number of sources would claim 150 IQ ( to 16 s.d.) to be
'genius' level. Incidentally, I would not, others must make their own
assessments and judgements. However, Donald Trump is certainly very exceptional in his chosen arena.
A qualifier, although Trump has many personality flaws which should really disqualify him from holding office, he has also been following some good policies to protect and enrich the American people - for which he was elected.
Trump is doing what he said he would do, and he is getting real results in the real world.
The British media concentrate on his personality flaws, as do a lot of the virtue-signalling Left, so they miss where he is delivering on his election commitments and any good things he is doing. Instead they focus on his manner, but in the way that the British press always do, preferring the tittle-tattle of personality politics. And, Trump with his thin skin, certainly gives them plenty of ammunition.
I see no 'thin skin'.
He is daring to confront the lying Left. As someone said, they don't like it up 'em!
Meanwhile, the Left are absolutely desperate to shut him down by their usual tactic of character assassination.
The more Trump winds them up, the more hysterical the Left become, and that exposes their vulnerable under-belly.
I don't care what Lefties think.
I do. They destroy people and societies; and the real fools vote
for them and their lies.
Donald Trump is doing a brilliant communications job, but then he is one of the best at it on the planet.
Well, he has even neutrals laughing at him at the moment - not because of what Wolff wrote, but because of Trump's response.
When fools observe the wisdom of the wise, they laugh and call it luck.
Are you saying that:-
"but he really shouldn't be saying that because it will offend the snowflakes and the pseudo-intellectuals"?
That he really should pretend to be 'a man of the people', like Jeremy Corbyn in the UK? Or be a representative of the sacred womb, like Mrs Clinton?
None of those. Trump makes himself sound so stupid.
I don't agree.
He only 'sounds stupid' to tight-arsed, middle class, wannabe intellectuals.
Real people vote for him.. I strongly expect the number voting for him will increase, the more the empty heads
mock and posture.
Who is interested in the hack, Wolff? They will buy the 'book'
because they're interested in Trump, not because of any interest in the hack.
In a year or two, it will be remaindered and on 'sale' at Amazon for one penny. A little later on, Trump
will be up for reelection.
It's a pity because it allows the media to focus on his stupidity rather than his accomplishments.
The fossil media is stuffed to the gunnels with pseudo-intellectuals
who have never achieved anything of use or serious value.
Like actors, they reflect other people's lives, the lives of those who do achieve things.
"Trump … has more than 44 million Twitter followers and connects with millions more via Facebook and Instagram … "
"Trump has created a Twitter empire with a reach that far exceeds the combined subscriber base of the New York Times and Washington Post, and he has vastly expanded on Barack Obama’s use of a presidential Twitter feed to connect with voters."
