Here’s a question that every American can answer without having to expend much mental energy: What one word pops into your head when you hear the name Donald Trump?
What did you come up with? For me, it’s liar, because that’s what the president does anytime he opens his mouth or picks up his phone and tweets.
But Quinnipiac University did a scientific poll where they asked the very same question, and the top response from their survey also makes a lot of sense: Idiot. It was the choice of 39 percent of those who took part in the poll. And here are some other results:
I see mine–liar–came in a fairly close third place. Not bad. But take a look at some of the other words on the list: Ignorant. And this is the man we trust with our nuclear arsenal? Incompetent. But we’re gonna get tired of all the “winning” with him as president? Disgusting. This is who we want our children to emulate and admire? Not this parent! Despicable. But we want this man to represent us on the world stage and be the first person others think of when they reflect on the United States?
Then again, there are other words that are absent from the list which may well warrant inclusion. Words like traitor, criminal, and lunatic.
Make no mistake, Donald Trump is the biggest mistake this country has ever made when it comes to the White House. While many compare him to Richard Nixon, Nixon was a freaking nuclear scientist with the ethics of Mother Theresa compared to Trump.
So raise a glass to Idiot President Trump. We salute your incompetence as we shake our heads and pray you’re removed from office very soon.
