Clumsy and Inept…

Oh. My. GOD!  During Trump’s July fourth speech, he praised the colonial army for taking the British airports.  People began rightly pointing out that the British hadn’t yet built any airports in the colonies as air travel was still over 100 years into the future.  So, Trump, oblivious as always, blamed his ‘airport’ gaffe on the teleprompter.  Set aside, for a moment, the fact that his acolytes used to condemn the use of teleprompters – at least when the black guy used them.  But now Trump claims three things about it.  One, it was hard to read because of the rain.  Two, it “went down” because of the rain.  And, three, he insists he “knew the speech very well” so he was able to do it without the teleprompter anyway.

But if he “knew the speech very well”, the speechwriter must have intentionally put the line about the airports into the speech.  Even his lies are clumsy and inept…

I’ll tell you this: the thing I might consider newsworthy would be if he ever says anything that isn’t stupid…


“…and at Fort McHenry, under the rockets’ red glare, it had nothing but victory.”  Donald J. Trump, July 4, 2019, describing the Colonial Army’s successes.

Oops, wrong war.  The Battle of Baltimore took place in 1814 during the War of 1812.  The Revolutionary War had been over by more than a week by then!

The man is an embarrassment to humanity…


I’m not the only person who thinks so.  The British ambassador to the United States, Kim Darroch created an assessment for the Brits about Trump.  He described Trump as “radiating insecurity” and his administration as “clumsy and inept.”  This was a formal assessment for the benefit of British Ministers.  It was meant to be secret but it was meant to be honest, too.

Frankly, I think the assessment was all wrong.  The clowns in the Trump maladministration would have to improve by orders of magnitude in order to achieve “clumsy and inept…”


Some on the left have suggested that Trump might be a Russian agent working with Putin.  I’m sure that’s not true.  There’s NO WAY Putin would allow Trump to know he’s an asset for the Russians.  Trump is just too stupid to be able to keep such a confidence.

But the fact that he doesn’t know he’s a Russian asset doesn’t mean he’s not giving up state secrets…

Clumsy and inept, indeed…

  1. Have noticed that the only world leaders that like Trump are dictators and murderers? (And while he bounces from country to country, really the only one’s he seems to like really like and relate to are the same.) How long do you think it will take America to wipe off the stink and embarrassment of this man?
