The Mind of a ChildLeave a comment

Donald Trump has the mind of a child. That is in no way meant as a compliment. He is childish to the extreme. He rarely provides direct answers to questions. In fact, I sometimes wonder if he just has someone spinning an arrow on a wheel with predetermined answers.
“We’re going to look into that.”
“I’ll fix that problem.”
“I know how to fix that.”
“We’ll be strong when I’m President.”
“Through various means.”
“Through good management.”
Plus a handful of other standard answers that don’t actually provide any substance and shouldn’t provide any confidence that he has the first clue about how to run anything, but particularly our country.
His latest answer is a slight variation: “I would use different forms. It will take place and it will be done effectively and warmly and humanely. And a lot of people will be very happy about it.”
It really sounds like something a child would say to a teacher when asked a question about a reading assignment they didn’t actually complete.
I’m not surprised there are Americans that flock to that kind of mentality. After all, you have to remember that “half the people are below average.” But for 25-30% of Republicans to support him, according to numerous polls, is really beyond frightening.
I’m not sure I would trust him to drive my car. I’m in little doubt I would not let him stay in my house unattended (not that he would stoop to staying in my humble middle class home). And I’m positively certain I don’t want him running the country.
He reminds me of Chance The Gardner from “Being There.” But a mean spirited ungentlemanly version.
