Asked about Donald Trump, a former Wharton professor said,
Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had.
A reporter recently noted:
Professor Kelley told me 100 times over three decades that ‘Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had.’ I remember his emphasis and inflection — it went like this — “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had.’
Another biographer, Gwenda Blair, wrote in 2001 that Trump was admitted to Wharton on a special favor from a “friendly” admissions officer. Obviously he couldn’t have gotten in otherwise.
But let’s get real here for a second. Donald Trump can’t even read! I told you he was a pinhead. I suppose he has dyslexia. It is said that he reads at a 5th grade level. His aides make sure to give him briefs that are no longer than one page long. If longer than that, make sure to include charts, drafts, and drawings. Jesus. That sounds like the reading materials you might create for a child.
Let’s face it though. Trump’s illiteracy is exactly what his arrogantly ill-educated and aggressively ignorant deplorable base wanted, right? They hate technocrats and experts, people who read, weigh facts, and make proposals based on evidence, preferring low-brow, shoot-from-the-hip, unreflective living. Trump is their anti-intellectual hero, exactly what they voted for.
This is what happens when an entire political party disdains education, intellect, learning, scholarship, etc. We are on the road to Idiocracy. From Dan Quayle to George W Bush to Sarah Palin and now Trump. Heaven help us.
People who lived in New York during the Trump Era report in:
Nobody actually liked Donald Trump. Even then. He was obnoxious, if colorful. My (Old School Conservative, WWII vet) Jr. High teachers (I went to school in a fairly conservative area) cited Donald as evidence of crass 1980’s materialism and of how far this “younger generation” of 80’s yuppies had strayed from their generation’s principles of decency. Donald Trump was always a predictable turd.
I am/was a yuppie, and I and my yuppie NYC buddies all loathed Trump,not only because of his crassness but because we knew that he was a lying grifter and an unmeritorious opportunist.
If you want to know what Donald Trump is really like, ask New Yorkers. The suffered through him for decades. Nobody but nobody but nobody in New York likes that man!
