Donald Trump: Stable Genius

I know I tend to post a lot of articles and quotes rather than “original” thoughts, but sometimes other people just say things SO MUCH BETTER than I ever could.

The following is one of those times.

The question below was asked by Thomas Bowler on QUORA — and replied to by Michael Campbell.

Donald Trump is always boasting he has such a high IQ. How can we get him to prove it?

He proves his smarts every day. His high IQ comes blasting through every time he tweets his genius thoughts.

The Top Ten Things Which Prove That Donald Trump is a Stable Genius

10.) Only he knows that the “sound of Wind Turbines causes cancer.”

9.) He makes speeches that nobody can understand, so he must be speaking at a level far above the average person. Much of what he says can only be heard by people who can hear “Dog Whistles”.

8.) He knows big words like “covfefe”, which most people have no idea what it means.

7.) Only he is smart enough to read between the lines of The Mueller Report and see that he is “TOTALLY and COMPLETELY EXONERATED!”, right after the passage where it says “Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

6.) Only Trump knows that, “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.” Tweeted by him on 11/6/2012.

5.) He got all perfect grades in all the schools he attended, which he sued to keep private, so as not to embarrass all the regular, stupid people who voted for him.

4.) Who else knew about the capture of all the airports during the Revolutionary War?

3.) The fact that he won’t release his tax returns lends credence to the fact that he is a genius at not paying taxes.

2.) The fact that dozens of people who surround him daily, say that he doesn’t read anything, proves that he already must know everything.

1.) He has all the degrees possible from Trump University.

The Next Top Ten Things Which Demonstrate that Donald Trump is a Stable Genius

10.) Only he is smart enough to change the path of a hurricane with a Sharpie.

9.) Only he knows that DOJ actually stands for “Donnie’s Own Judicial” system
and Bill Barr is his personal lawyer.

8.) His genius has determined that Senate acquittal means he was never really
impeached.

7.) Only he is smart enough to know that the Corona virus is just a fad and will be
gone when the weather warms up.

6.) Trump is smart enough to know that everyone else is just plain stupid,
especially the ones he hires and eventually fires for all his cabinet posts and
staff.

5.) Foregoing his $400,000 Presidential salary while he bills the government for
$140 million in golf expenses at his resorts is pure genius.

4.) It was a genius move to give The Presidential Medal of Freedom to Rush
Limbaugh at the State of the Union address. Nobody could possibly disagree
with that, right?

3.) Firing Gordon Sondland as EU Ambassador and keeping his $1 Million campaign donation was brilliant.

2.) Using the National Prayer Breakfast to swear revenge on his impeachment
enemies was something only “The Chosen One” would be smart enough to do.

1.) He is brilliant enough to divert $3.8 Billion from Congressionally allocated
military spending to fund his wall, which Mexico was supposed to pay for.

In South Korea, Success Fighting the Virus Brings Success at the Ballot Box

In an early demonstration of how a government’s response to an epidemic can alter the political landscape, South Korea’s ruling, center-left Democratic Party scored a landslide victory in legislative elections Wednesday, largely on the strength of its success in tackling COVID-19.

[…]

“Moon has shown steady leadership, trying to remain above the fray of partisanship and scandal while emphasizing a science-based, collective response to the pandemic. He has also represented South Korea on the international stage as a positive example of policy planning, implementation and cooperation.”

[…]

Moon has ceded much of the public limelight to Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Jung Eun-kyeong, an infectious diseases expert who, speaking to reporters in a yellow jumpsuit, has become the public face of South Korea’s battle against COVID-19.

And there’s more …

The contrast is notable. As are the results.

Ending Shelter-In-Place

I want to share an idea I had related to opening businesses, allowing people to return to work, and yet still keeping everyone safe from COVID-19. While I highly doubt I’m the only one who has thought of this since few ideas are “original,” I’m curious to know what my blog readers think.

Before you share your opinions, please know that I’m well aware there are those who would strongly resist my idea since they believe it would infringe on their “freedom.” But putting that aside, do you think such a plan would work? And would YOU be willing to follow it?

The most important requirement of this plan would be that EVERYONE … I mean, EVERYONE … would have to participate.

Ending the shelter in place

Until mass testing becomes available to identify who is or is not infected — or until a vaccine is available — we would ALL wear protective face masks.

NO EXCEPTIONS.

People could return to work, we could all go places, do things, and return to
semi-normal living. BUT we would have to wear a mask to protect both ourselves and others.

And these would not be “homemade” coverings. They would have to be masks that truly protect both parties — perhaps a type of N-95 mask that has been (quickly) designed by some innovative (i.e., money-oriented) company to be more comfortable for long periods of wear yet performs comparatively.

There would undoubtedly be resistance to such a requirement, so mask-wearing would need to be a government-mandated requirement, which means law enforcement may need to be involved.

As this action would allow people to return to work, all business establishments would be required to post messages to remind employees to thoroughly wash their hands and/or use hand sanitizer throughout the day.

I know. I know. The idea is probably pretty far-fetched, but absent mass testing or a vaccine, we are all at risk each and every time we come in contact with the public.

Moreover, many people are suffering greatly from the “shelter-in-place” restrictions. Not only from loss of income, but from the emotional toll as well.

As many of you know, Trump is currently pushing (threatening?) to open everything up by May 1st. I don’t think I need to expand on the dangers of this action until some type of safety restrictions are in place.
