For some reason, when Trump supporters are asked to defend their tangerine man-child, they wind up stumbling over their own words and proving they’re just as ignorant as the illegitimate American head of state.
Such was the case on AM Joy Saturday morning during a panel discussion of the new Michael Wolff book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, specifically what White House aides had to say about the alleged president. Host Joy Reid asked:
“For Steve Mnuchin and Reince Priebus, he was an ‘idiot.’ For Gary Cohn he was ‘dumb as expletive.’ For H.R. McMaster he was a ‘dope.’ What do you make of the fact that people inside the administration are commonly constantly referring to Donald Trump as an unintelligent dope and an idiot?”
Jen Kerns, a reporter for the right-wing Washington Examiner, didn’t answer the question, and decided to go off on this riff instead:
“The biggest premise of this book, that I think is false, is that somehow like this chaos in the West Wing is somehow a crime. We know of people that are CEO’s, entrepreneurs, inventors, people like Donald Trump, they love chaos. they love a difference of opinion, diversity of opinion.”
But do they love stupid? Joy lit into Kerns:
“Diversity of opinion about intelligence? Would you allow somebody in an organization you were running, somebody who was considered dumb, a dope, an idiot, chaos to reign? Does that sound like a sound organization?”
“I think American people knew what they were getting.”
Again, Reid was ready and pushed back at Kerns:
“Did they know they were getting a dope, an idiot, dumb?”
But Kerns refused to answer the question, and tried to pivot so she could change the terms of the debate:
“One of the criticisms so far of the book has been the sourcing of Mr. Wolff. In his own introduction, he said there were differing opinions, differing sources, and he even said he believed that some sources were not factual.”
Reid, clearly fed up with Kerns, finally shut her down with this:
“Anybody who covered Trump for a long time knows everything in this book rings true. You can go back and forth on the sourcing and methods, but the Donald Trump in this book is the Donald Trump the press has been covering for the last year, and it’s the Donald Trump that New Yorkers have known for three decades.”
Donald Trump is, to put it mildly, intellectually incurious and severely limited in his ability to understand complex topics. He’s the very definition of an idiot, and that alone should disqualify him from being president.
