It’s really too easy, it’s sort of cheating, to write a blog about something stupid that Trump just said, because you can pretty much do that on any day that ends in a y, but here you go. Just one day after comparing himself to Elvis (not the old, fat Elvis, the young Elvis that all the ladies were swooning over, because of his good looks and beautiful voice), the American president said this, in defense of his ongoing war against planet Earth: “One of the problems that a lot of people like myself, we have very high levels of intelligence, but we’re not necessarily such believers. You look at our air and our water and it’s right now at a record clean. But when you look at China and you look at parts of Asia and when you look at South America, and when you look at many other places in this world, including Russia, including – just many other places — the air is incredibly dirty. And when you’re talking about an atmosphere, oceans are very small. And it blows over and it sails over. I mean, we take thousands of tons of garbage off our beaches all the time that comes over from Asia. It just flows right down the Pacific, it flows, and we say where does this come from. And it takes many people to start off with.”
It reminds me of the last words of Dutch Schultz (google it, it’s a hoot), it makes so little sense. The first sentence, which isn’t grammatically correct, speaks of his high level of intelligence. It takes a truly stupid man to think he is intelligent even while he is saying stuff which absolutely, 100% proves that he is a moron. This isn’t just a proof of the Dunning-Krueger theory, it is a comical illustration of it. Then “a record clean.” Again, not grammatical. It’s so ungrammatical that if I were going to correct a fellow internet commenter on it, I would check first to see if English was not their native language. But, the main point is that it’s not. That’s what the report, which he is so busy ignoring, is all about. Our air is at a record level of filthiness, our water is so bad it is poisoning the lettuce, and in a few short years it could pass the point of no return and doom the human race to extinction.
Then he insults China, Asia (Donald, Donald, Donald. China is part of Asia.), South America, and Russia. Also, China is planting trees and putting up solar panels like crazy. They are dealing with the pollution problem. The U.S. is not.
Then, he says oceans are very small, but not that long ago he was saying he couldn’t get aid to Puerto Rico because they are so big. Make up your damn mind.
Yes, the atmosphere is a relatively large area, but the pollution doesn’t “just blow over, just sail over.” It blows around, and around, and around the world but the pollution doesn’t blow out of the air because there’s no place for it to blow out to.
Seriously, the man has some sort of a mental handicap and this poses a threat to all mankind.
