Donald Trump is an idiot. There, I said it. But to hear him tell it, he’s brilliant. And of course this tells us that Trump is so freaking stupid that he doesn’t even realize just how clueless he is. That’s the very definition of pathetic.
The latest proof we have of Trump’s ignorance comes to us from a question MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson asked the president: Should he behave more civilly in consideration of the office he holds? Trump replied:
“I think the press makes me more uncivil than I am. You know people don’t understand. I went to an Ivy League college. I was a nice student, I did very well.
“I’m a very intelligent person. I really believe, I think the press creates a different image of Donald Trump than the real person.”
Notice how he switched to third person at the end of his statement? That alone should be enough to get him impeached.
Fortunately, plenty of people of Twitter were more than willing to make fun of the Dotard-in-Chief, and they did:
RT if the dumbest motherfucker you ever worked with went to an Ivy. https://t.co/csqmOtlYEj

I don't know about you, but when someone describes themselves as a "very intelligent person," I tend to assume the opposite. #trump

Donald Trump is NOT very intelligent. My dog is smarter than him, and a hell of a lot nicer.
