"This is the evil genius of Trump—is that he knows how to keep, especially liberals, all scatterbrained," says filmmaker Michael Moore. "He becomes the master distractor. He knows how to get people off the topic and on to something else so that we won’t really be paying attention to what he’s really up to."
I would never use the word Genius associated with Trump! I'm going to agree with Varn's explanation of the situation. Trump is just a symptom of what is going wrong in our country and politics. At any other time in our history I don't think he would have stood a chance of being elected. The sad fact is that there are too many ignorant uninformed people in our country and the world for that matter!
Horseshit... ‘trump’ is intellectually lazy, thus uninformed. He’s obviously losing it mentally from his hay days in NYC (see the Netflix documentary). He’s a babbling, poorly educated lazy asshole who, though afflicted with the same mental condition as hitler (Malignant Narcissism), stumbled into power by filling the rhetorical niches created by corporate Republicans, implemented by their party lackys ..and nearly elected by a mere 30% of America’s bucket of deplorables.. He’s nowhere near smart enough to be the least bit manipulative and lacks the most basic ability to even know when to Shut Up…
Michael Moore’s wrong, on this one ~
There is only one thing he is good at and that is manipulating the news cycles with distraction so he can do horrible things to the environment and human rights without these incidents making it to the news cycle so people won't find out what he's really up to.
In this age ov ADD, ADHD, opiod epidemics across the country, and no pretense to the truth by most politicians, left and right, along with extreme polarization, this is no surprise. It's almost as if the collective IQ of the nation dropped 30 points since he came into office.
