Posted on 05/08/2017 1:16:22 PM PDT by EveningStar
It is urgent for Americans to think and speak clearly about President Trumps inability to do either. This seems to be not a mere disinclination but a disability. It is not merely the result of intellectual sloth but of an untrained mind bereft of information and married to stratospheric self-confidence.
In February, acknowledging Black History Month, Trump said that Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody whos done an amazing job and is getting recognized more and more, I notice. Because Trump is syntactically challenged, it was possible and tempting to see this not as a historical howler about a man who died 122 years ago, but as just another of Trumps verbal fender benders, this one involving verb tenses...
What is most alarming (and mortifying to the University of Pennsylvania, from which he graduated) is not that Trump has entered his eighth decade unscathed by even elementary knowledge about the nations history. As this column has said before, the problem isnt that he does not know this or that, or that he does not know that he does not know this or that. Rather, the dangerous thing is that he does not know what it is to know something...

George, at least Trump knows how to pronounce “Corpsman”.
George still suffering from post election butt hurt?
Yes, he puts his foot in his mouth occasionally, but he doesn’t have his head up his arse like his predecessor.
WTF has TRUMP disappointed Conservatives on?
From what I can tell, he's been very very good to Conservatives!!!
Can’t wait for Trump to troll George.
You know he will eventually.
Scott Adams already called this. “Hitler” is done, “incompetent” has worn off, and Trump destroyed “Russian puppet” with the Syrian strikes. Now the Never-Trumpers are moving on to “crazy.”
Expect to hear nothing but “Trump is deranged” from the media for a long time.
How very Soviet, Mr. Will. Stalin is smiling at you.
#NeverTrumpers are just as useful as the left wing useful idiots
I understand him which is all that matters to me George. Besides when I was in college, I was told by an instructor that all newspaper stories are written in grammar school level English. So what are you complaining about?
The statement about Frederick Douglass was both historically and syntactically correct.
George Will has outed himself as a WhINO.
President Trump may not know as much history as pecksniff George Will. OTOH, President Trump will make and profoundly influence world history whereas Will will be remembered mostly for his bowtie, if at all.
And he speaks without er, er, er, um, er, um, I, I, me, me, um, um, er, er, er....
George Will - Profiles in Irrelevance
At least it’s not having the worst toupee on the planet, second only to Sam Donaldson.
Expect to hear nothing but Trump is deranged from the media for a long time.
Talk about demonizing
And yet Zero everything out of his mouth was offensive Oh but he is black....the elephant in the room.
George Will is a bitter man.
And besides as a father of a disabled child he does a great disservice to the truly disabled with his insipid comparison
He should refer to him as Little George Weewee.
Will has to write this crap...he works at msnbc now
