Seeing a clip of Donald Trump looking foolish is like seeing grains of sand on the beach, there’s too many to count. But a recent mash up by the Lincoln Project really captures the essence of who Trump is. You’ve seen this footage before and you’ve even seen it juxtaposed with Barack Obama making a similar announcement about Osama bin Laden. That clip is below.
Watching how Obama expresses himself and how Biden expresses himself, with Donald Doofus in between and how he expresses himself is truly one for the ages. These three clips, together, need to be preserved somewhere for all the ages.

Then Obama/Trump (with Jimmy Kimmel’s audience in the background.)

If it’s Obama or Biden speaking, these things leap out at you: Knowledge, gravity, poise, context. It is an historic moment explained by an American president.
When you get to Trumpty Dumpty, you get: Cluelessness, winging it, who gives a shit, I have to do this, it’s all about me whatever it is.
Here’s another bonus clip where Trump’s making an ass out of himself in front of veterans. He handles the issues in this clip the same way he handles the issue above. He’s a game show host. That’s his most profound level of depth. He understands zip beyond that.

If this does get into a time capsule at some point, the question will be, “Who’s the immature old dummy who acts like he’s on a game show?” The answer will be, we’re still too embarrassed to tell you.
