Trump is a jerk. The only good thing you can say about him is
that he's usually right.

Being usually right is not a remarkable skill.


Except the claim that he is such, or even approaches 'rightness'
is what is wrong with the remark.

Donald J. Trump is an abject idiot. Anyone with even a modicum of
intelligence can see it.


The depressing thing about Donald Trump is that he isn't an abject idiot.

He's clever enough to appeal to moderately intelligent people, and is aware that he isn't clever enough to work a more perceptive audience - they may have more money, but they aren't going to fall for the lines that he can deliver with real conviction. So he doesn't bother wasting time on polishing his lines too much.

If he can win over John Larkin and Cursitor Doom he's got enough supporters to look like a winner, until somebody genuinely competent shows up, but they've all wandered off to gigs with better quality audiences.

I don't begrudge the kids having a better standard of living and
expectations than we had, but they do need to learn the value of
money and it's relationship to work. Our two lads did the washing
up and household chores for their pocket money. It can be a hard,
brutal world out there and kids need to be prepared for that. No

No. He absolutely IS an abject idiot. Eachand every lie he told
about 'finishing top in his class' is further proof that the stupid
bastard makes excuses for his lackings at every turn.

The depressing thing about Donald J. Trump is that total retards like
you actually think he is intelligent.

He rates about a 3 on the NYC smarts scale.

If he were a complete idiot, he wouldn't have done as well as he has.

He lies more or less non-stop, but his lies are close enough to reality that a lot of people find them plausible. He long since worked out that telling the truth doesn't work for him, but that that he ca lie plausibly enough to fool enough of the people, enough of the time.

I don't think that he is particularly intelligent, but he is of above-average intelligence, and has a practiced set of tricks that do allow him to fool enough of the people enough of the time. If he had been trained to think things through from an early age he might have been able to do better, but he learned at an early age that plausible lies worked, and could be put together a lot faster than a more accurate - and less profitable - narrative.

He does seem to be a trifle psychopathic, and it's a question whether he started lying because he was a psychopath or whether the psychopathic attitude is one that developed as part of the necessary skill set as he got to be a more skilled and fluent liar

> He rates about a 3 on the NYC smarts scale.

He hung around with clever people in New York society. They didn't think much of him, but nobody went to the trouble of derailing his little red waggon either.

Inability to do even the basics with money is a major problem for kids today. It all gets weed away on nothing of consequence, spent on things I'd never consider spending on. Then when they run out guess who they ask for more!

If only they could implement some sense they'd have a much better standard of living.

Not at all. Most of my notebook pages never get red-line revision, because
they're fine the frst time. 'Usually right' is so commonplace, in fact,
that it's puzzling to hear someone getting something wrong; why
would that happen, you can (A) think it through, or (B) defer to an expert,
or (C) keep silence. It does take some broad knowledge to know
when to go with (B), though.

Why would one think 'today's world' is full of errors? More likely, some
agressive stupidity or clickbait hype/ambiguity has come to your attention.

Review the portal through which you see "today's world" and you'll probably
see that you're looking through a flawed lens.

John Larkin is a gullible twit. Anybody who believes denialist propaganda about anthropogenic climate change is bound to think that today's world is full of errors, because not everybody share his particular set of preferred delusions (which does include the idea that Trump knows what he is doing).

He is a lot of things, but idiot is not one of them. The guy has been able to fool a lot of people into thinking he can run the country and keep his many campaign promises. Those people are pretty gullible but even that is not the same thing as being stupid.

Trump certainly does a lot of things that will make you want to say, "That guy's an idiot", but the reality is he is *not* an idiot. He has a different way of thinking about how to manipulate people and often it appears to be stupid, but he has gotten a number of things he wanted. Look at the tax breaks he managed to get Congress to pass. A village idiot could not have pulled that off.

I think the "hard work" ethic is a bit over rated. I spent a lot of time working hard and it didn't get me anything I couldn't have gotten with a lot less work. In the end I did what I always do which is to apply my intelligence and eventually it paid off big time.

I think kids should be taught the maxim, "work smarter, not harder".
