Same guy, right?

Guys? We’re not sure, but we’ve got some concerns about Donald Trump’s brain. We mean, maybe more than usual. Consider this example from Fox News Monday, in which the president of the Best America seems not to know that North Korea has had two completely different leaders since the 1990s. After saying he wouldn’t telegraph anything about his plans for dealing with North Korea, because foreign policy is a lot more fun when it’s a surprise, Trump talked about how both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were both hoodwinked by “this gentleman,” although the North Korean dictator Bill Clinton negotiated with, Kim Jong Il, died in 2011 and his son, Kim Jong Un, took over the presidency and living secular godhood of the country:

But, you know, they’ve been talking with this gentleman for a long time. You read Clinton’s book, he said, “Oh, we made such a great peace deal,” and it was a joke. You look at different things over the years with President Obama. Everybody has been outplayed, they’ve all been outplayed by this gentleman. And we’ll see what happens. But I just don’t telegraph my moves.

Dude. Say what you will about how other presidents negotiated with the Hermit Kingdom, but at least you gotta know there were two gentlemen of Pyongyang (one of Shakespeare’s least popular plays).

Trump has mentioned Kim Jong Un, the son and current leader, by name, we’re pretty sure, but he’s either unaware or has forgotten there was also his daddy, Kim Jong Il. Early symptoms of dementia, or just White House Rose Garden-variety ignorance? And with someone as manifestly, obstinately committed to being wrong as Trump, how would you even tell? We’re hoping it’s just a slip, like Kellyanne Conway’s reference Monday to “First Lady Miche— … Melania Trump.” Then again, we could just be covering up for Trump because we can never keep Tennessee and Kentucky straight in our head. And don’t even try to get us to remember Canadian states or presidents!

Maybe someone should show Trump this photo of Kim Jong Un escorting his father’s funeral cortege, if only for the amusement value of seeing whether Trump is puzzled by the fact the late North Korean dictator was carried to his rest by a parade of ’70s vintage Lincoln Continentals:

Then again, that could be risky. Might trigger a Studio 54 flashback.

    The Clinton deal held up until Dubya invaded Iraq and Kim Jung Il said “fuck this, we need some nukes to stop this madman”. Dubya let that slide because he was all “my dick is bigger than my daddy’s”.

    “You read Clinton’s book, he said, “Oh, we made such a great peace deal,” and it was a joke”

    Bull-fucking-shit, Lying Donald, Bill Clinton in fact did make a great peace deal with North Korea, and it worked just fine until another unqualified idiot stole the White House and decided to label them part of an imaginary “axis of evil”, said he refused to negotiate with “bad guys” and threw the deal out, leading directly to North Korea developing the nuclear bomb. That right there was the problem, not the negotiation of the great deal that kept them from developing nukes until that moron decided to do something incredibly stupid and dangerous.

    • georgiaburning

      Exactly. The message that W’s Iraq invasion sent to Iran and N Korea was that if you have a nuke we won’t attack you. Dumb!

      I was watching this great History Channel miniseries from 2012 called ‘The Men Who Built America’, about the industrial revolution and Trump was one of the talking heads, talking about Vanderbilt and Rockefeller and he actually made sense and seemed to know what he was talking about. It’s amazing how much his cognitive abilities have deteriorated since then.

      • georgiaburning

    Little Donnie repeats this often, usually citing the Iraqi attack to force ISIS/ISIL out of Mosul. “They knew we were coming for months. Stupid.” Now … I realize Little Donnie knows more than the generals, but perhaps the Iraqi army wanted to warn their fellow Iraqi citizens still in Mosul to get out or find shelter. Perhaps the Iraqi army wanted to demoralize ISIS/ISIL (who could obviously see the tanks and troops preparing). Perhaps the announcement was misinformation to confuse ISIS/ISIL.

    Anyway, the real reason he doesn’t telegraph his moves is because he has no earthly idea what he’s doing.

      It’s only a gateway drug because you have to buy it on the black market, from a dealer who is selling you higher margin products that will bring a more potent high.

      It’s physically no more of a gateway drug than alcohol is to drinking turpentine. What IS a gateway drug to heroin though would be the hundreds of Opiod narcotics legally available on the market.

      Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) said on Tuesday that President Trump’s frequent trips to his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida bother not only her, but other members of the Republican caucus.

      “I do wish he would spend more time in Washington, D.C.,” Ernst said during a town hall meeting. “That’s what we have the White House for.”

        Perhaps they should get the CIA to arrange an “accident” for Trump, then he would be too lame to leave the White House.

        Although, come to think of it, being lamer than a Grade 3 classroom president hasn’t stopped Donnie so far.

    Remember the British sitcom where the Family’s last name was Bucket, but the lady of the house insisted that it was pronounced Bouquet? The Trump family is much like that. It may look like it’s pronounced pile of sh it, but it’s pronounced very wealthy very smart and always right.

      Clive Swift, aka “Richard Bucket,” had a great line early, something to effect of, “All my life my last name was ‘Bucket,’ … until I married Hyacinth.”

    Another brick in the wall, so to speak. Alzheimers? Dementia?

    That video of Trump at the Easter Egg event, signing kids’ hats and then throwing them into the crowd – the snip I saw anyway – ends with him holding a pen and asking “who’s hat is this?” before he hands the pen to someone.

    [Aircraft Carrier Wasn’t Sailing to Deter North Korea, as U.S. Suggested
    By MARK LANDLER and ERIC SCHMITTAPRIL 18, 2017
    WASHINGTON — As worries deepened last week about whether North Korea would conduct a missile test, the White House declared that ordering an American aircraft carrier into the Sea of Japan would send a powerful deterrent signal and give President Trump more options in responding to the North’s provocative behavior.

    The problem was, the carrier, the Carl Vinson, and the four other warships in its strike force were at that very moment sailing in the OPPOSITE direction, to take part in joint exercises with the Australian Navy in the Indian Ocean, 3,500 miles southwest of the Korean Peninsula.]

    Just makes you feel sooo’ safe and secure, huh?

    This is how my 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Frazier taught us to tell Tennessee from Kentucky. The Mississippi river has two double s’s and a double p, and Tennessee has one double s, a double n and a double e. Kentucky has no double letters at all. Tennessee borders the Mississippi because they both have a lot of double letters, she said. Match up the double letters, she said. I never forgot that. Thanks, Mrs. Frazier (she is undoubtedly dead now, but thanks anyway).
