Jill Biden did an appearance on Jake Tapper’s show. In any normal world, it would have been a lightweight exchange of ideas between a prospective First Lady and a journalist on a Sunday morning, pre-election. This exchange was noteworthy for two reasons: first, it is so remarkable and refreshing to hear an intelligent, articulate woman put together sentences again, after the inscrutable and strictly ornamental Melania has been our titular First Lady. Secondly, whatever gaffes Biden has made, pale in insignificance to the blithering idiocy of Donald Trump.
If the airports of 1775 or a “gun on every table” have slipped your mind, walk down memory lane. Every president makes a few gaffes. Obama slipped once and said something about “52 states.” He also put the wrong date in a guest book at Buckingham Palace. To err is human, etc., but what Trump is doing is not error. This is madness.
The dictionary should put a picture of Trump next to the word “gaffe.”
