Donald Trump’s literacy issues are the least of his problems. He’s a Russian operative who rigged the election and is illegally occupying the Oval Office. He has immigrant kids locked in cages. He’s plotting against the United States with a murderous Saudi Arabian prince. He’s pure evil. Even as we work to oust him and bring him to justice, Trump occasionally – and unwittingly – gives us something to make fun of him for.
Trump really wants us to believe that a whole lot of bad people are coming across the border. Today alone, he claimed that an astounding 42 million Latin American people are about to enter the United States. He then claimed that the Democrats are just fine with the ones who are supposedly murderers. At least we think he meant to say murderers.
Here’s what Trump came up with: “The Border Committee Democrats are behaving, all of a sudden, irrationally. Not only are they unwilling to give dollars for the obviously needed Wall (they overrode recommendations of Border Patrol experts), but they don’t even want to take muderers into custody! What’s going on?” Wait, what is a muderer?
The responses came fast and furious, and they weren’t exactly kind. The general consensus is that, while no one really cares whether or not Donald Trump knows how to spell or edit, he has the nearly limitless resources of the presidency at his disposal, and it would be very easy for him to avoid these kinds of embarrassing moments. We’re left to wonder if Trump hates the “muderers” so much because they stole all his “hamberders” amid “global waming.”
