Have you ever had an epiphany? That one blinding moment when the clouds part, the sun shines down, Gabriel’s trumpet sounds, and all at once everything is crystal clear? I just had one. And the resulting brilliance of that epiphany? Donald Trump is a moron!
I’m serious. Everybody loves to call Trump a moron whenever he does something stupid, even his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson called him a fucking moron. But you know what? That’s just descriptive American slang, a derisive epithet.
What I’m saying is that Donald Trump is literally a moron. Even granting his purloined Wharton Business School diploma, bought with his sisters assistance, Donald Trump is a functional moron. He lives in a self protective cocoon of personal brilliance and success. The real world doesn’t make much of an impression. That’s why he so often comes across as totally tone deaf when he talks about things.
Trump by his nature is immature, insecure, and childish. He covets things. Wealth, fame, possessions, that is his nature. And as Hannibal Lecter said in Silence of the Lambs, How do you covet? You start by coveting things that you see every day.
Trump coverts. He covets to the point that he used Trump Charitable Foundation funds to buy a 6′ painting of himself, as well as a Tim Tebow autographed Florida Gators helmet. Which caused the closure of his foundation by New York state. Never having graced the cover of Time magazine as the Man of the Year, Trump dummied one up to put on his club wall.
What does this have to do with today, and current events? Here’s what. When Trump became President, suddenly he had access to the nations most sensitive secrets. What a rush for a doofus who could barely tie his shoes! Trump covets things. And when he had access to top secret documents, like Gollum from The Lord of the Rings, he had to have His precious! And so he horded them. Kept them close. And when he left the White House, he took His Precious with him.
Sweet Jesus! The NSA team couldn’t get Trump to read a daily briefing even if they bribed him with double bacon cheeseburgers! Trump didn’t give a shit about national security, all he cared about was his access to the documents.
And therein lies the saga of the Mar-A-Lago documents. Who cares if Trump shuffled through the documents in the storage locker? Does anybody really believe that Traitor Tot actually read through all of that shit? All Trump wanted to do was to thumb through them, and see those bright red Top Secret stamps at the top of every page. Those were His Preciousssss!
It was never about the secrets. It was about the documents. They were special and important, which meant that Trump had to possess them, whether he knew what was in them or not. And when he gets perp walked, Trump honestly won’t even know why. Trump is a functional moron, which in this instance, makes him the most dangerous man alive.
