ANTI-TRUMPERS PUSH NONSENSE
INSTEAD OF REAL CRITICISM
A video circulating on Facebook shows Donald Trump crowing about a new coin that commemorates the hundredth anniversary of women’s suffrage. In typical self-congratulatory mode he wonders why such a token wasn’t issued “a long time ago,” and boasts of being someone who can “get a lot of things done,” and so accomplished it.
The circulators of the video aren’t criticizing him for his tendency to claim credit — a trait he exhibits frequently — but for a silly slip of the tongue. Naturally, a coin commemorating an anniversary wouldn’t be issued “a long time” before the anniversary occurs. What Trump insists we should have commemorated earlier is women voting.
It’s the kind of common malapropism everyone makes from time to time. But as far as the circulators are concerned, for The Donald it’s proof positive that the “stable genius” really is “that dumb.”
Petty, petty, petty.
