Donald Trump doesn’t have the intellectual hardware to do any kind of reasoned analysis. His career as a reality TV star and self-styled tabloid celebrity was built upon his ability to cobble together talking points and weave them into a simplistic black and white, us vs. them philosophy. This is the same philosophy that he brings to the White House now and it is a disaster, to use of of his own 200 vocabulary words. But, nevertheless, this is all he’s got so it’s all we’re going to get. Here is Trump’s latest contribution to the national discourse, as the govenor of Minnesota puts the National Guard on full mobilization.
It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don’t lay the blame on others!

He says these things not because he believes them, but because he needs somebody to blame. He is incapable of the analysis it would take to reach a decision as to what’s what in any given situation, and so his kneejerk reaction is to figure out who to point the finger at. That’s the topic of this new ad, and it is spot on.

This is good because it’s got presidents of both parties. Whether they’re mediocre or great, real leaders take responsibility. You will never see that from Donald Trump. He doesn’t have it in him. He’s too small and immature a person.
