Super Stupid

Trump Forgot Which Country He Bombed, But He Remembered the Cake

George W. Bush is smiling down at all of us today for thinking he may have been the dumbest president in the history of America.

Trump participated in an interview with Fox Business reporter Maria Bartiromo where he recounted the dessert and missile attack he shared with Chinese president Xi Jinping.

He also forgot which country he bombed.

TRUMP: I was sitting at the table, we had finished dinner. We're now having dessert and we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen and President Xi was enjoying it. [...]

So what happens is I said 'we've just launched 59 missiles heading to Iraq...'

BARTIROMO: ...headed to Syria?

TRUMP: Yes, heading toward Syria.

[...]

BARTIROMO: How did he react?

TRUMP: He paused for 10 seconds and then he asked the interpreter to please say it again.

Can you even imagine the Chinese president's inner monologue as he's informed that the U.S. just committed an act of war over chocolate cake?

I simply don't believe Xi said anything that Trump claims he said.

    I have an idea:

    I read the annotated transcript of the interview.

    Holy cats.

    Maria Bartiromo alternated between acting like a starstruck teenager and prompting Donald Trump for answers. Egads, what an embarrassment.

    Trump is still whingeing about the election, still understands nothing about trade (if the US did what Trump says it should, the WTO would slap us down in a heartbeat), still claims various unnamed people (people who clearly disagree with his positions quite vehemently) agree with his positions, still babbles incoherently, and now has added an obsession with chocolate cake (by his hand gestures, the reason that piece of chocolate cake was the “most beautiful” one is because it was stupidly large).

    Oh, and he seems not to have a full understanding of what it was he casually ordered the military to do while he had his dessert.

    Xi Jinping must have thought he was sitting across the table from a drooling madman.

  • That whole interview is batshit insane. Incoherent, random, just babbling. What a dangerous embarrassment.

    God, what a buffoon. Plus, I am pissed that these “state dinners” are taking place at the Trump-owned Mar-a-Lago. Just what in the actual f*ck… the White House isn’t gilded enough? I find it truly insulting that Trump can’t be bothered to pretend to be president at our actual seat of government.

    • I feel the same way. It’s the fucking White House. I would be so thrilled to be there and so proud to represent my country. But not this shitgibbon.

      It’s all about the money!

    And her, Maria Bartiromo, sheesh could she have gushed anymore, unmanned missiles, what a question. The whole bunch at Fox is making me feel even crazier lately.
