To be fair to fucking morons, they are simply dumb whereas Trump is dumb with the addition of a toxic personality.



can you quit with saying he is a Moron? That's simply not right.

Your head of state is mentally ill. And you knew that when you elected him. The rest of the world is coming to the conclusion maybe your ELECTORATE are the morons.

Dude, H.L. Mencken pointed that out more than a century ago and the rest of the world is twigging to this NOW...? Doesn’t speak well for human intelligence in general.

Three quotes:

As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.


No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.


Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard.


...and a bonus quote. The perfect description of Trump, Bozo and other like-minded wannabe Hitlers:

The demagogue is one who preaches doctrines he knows to be untrue to men he knows to be idiots.

The moron part is just an act, just like GW's folksy style. The man knows what he wants, it's just that it's at odds with the majority and decency.

Well the biggest irony is that the Land of the Free is far from it despite the it's much vaunted re-interpreted Constitution. The Land of Free Enterprise and Capitalism is used to massive government structures, massive market interference and government wealthfare propping up failed business organisations. Mass government bureaucracy, horribly complicated tax and legal system and yet somehow the natives are convinced they have the "best", "free-ist" system in the world. It would be funny if it were not so self-deluded*.

*NB - of course the same or similar could be said for many or perhaps the majority of other "democratic" countries as well - however they do NOT put themselves up on a pedestal and make themselves out or even believe to be the best in quite the same over-bearing opinionated manner whilst being usually completely ignorant of how the rest of the world operates. Attitudes like that akin to those of the 18-19th century do not really cut it in the 21st Century**.

**NB2 - Unless you are Australian in which case you get a free pass :p
