Donald Trump is a very stupid person. He is not bright. If he hadn’t inherited millions-of-dollars from his dad, the likelihood is he would, today, be struggling in a minimum-wage job. His very limited intelligence would have offered little alternative.
The successes he’s had in business are down to him having his father’s money to hire intelligent and skilled people to do the work. He has reaped the financial benefit of others’ labour.
There is also a long list of Trump business-failures, where workers and creditors went unpaid, while he washed his hands of responsibility by declaring his companies bankrupt. Presumably these were the ventures where ‘Dimwit Donald’ thought he knew best and overruled the advice of staff.
Of course, Trump’s stupidity screams from him every time he opens his mouth on a public platform. During his run for the presidency of the United States of America, one of his most ignorant and offensive ideas has been to ban all Muslims from entering the US “until we know what’s going on”. The clear implication being that Mr Trump doesn’t “know what’s going on”, and believes barring entry to millions of followers of Islam would, in some way, stop whatever actually is going on.
Had Trump’s insane and unworkable ban on Muslims already been US policy, decent, hard-working people like Khizr and Ghazala Khan would not have been allowed to emigrate from their home country to the US and become American citizens. It would also have meant that the Khan’s son, Humayun, would not have grown-up in the States and would not have answered his country’s call by joining the military and fighting in the ill-fated and illegal war in Iraq.
In 2004, Humayun, then aged 24, was killed when an improvised-explosive-device detonated under the vehicle in which he was travelling with fellow US soldiers.
Last week, Humayun’s mum and dad attended the Democratic National Convention, where Mr Khan publicly, and rightly, noted his son’s bravery and commitment, before questioning what “sacrifice” Donald Trump had ever made for the United States.
In response, Trump mocked Mrs Khan because she had not contributed from the convention stage: “She had nothing to say,” argued Trump, before suggesting that she might not have been allowed to speak because she is a Muslim.
The Republican presidential candidate also indicated he had “sacrificed a lot”, because he had built businesses, created thousands of jobs and “been successful”.
As previously stated, Donald Trump is a very stupid person. He is also a coward.
Unlike Humayun Khan, Donald Trump did not serve his country – the United States of America.
Trump was at college during the 1960s, while the Vietnam war raged and thousands of young Americans fought and died in the killing fields of Vietnam and Cambodia. As a student – studying Real Estate – Trump received four deferments from military service to allow him to complete his course.
However, in 1968, as Trump completed his studies, the Viet Cong were inflicting extremely heavy casualties on American forces. The US was desperate for more young men to join the fight.
Donald Trump, though, discovered he had a medical condition – bone spurs in his heels – which secured for him another deferment, meaning he could join his daddy’s real estate company rather than fighting for his country.
According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, ‘spurs’ are a growth of calcium that can develop on bones. The condition causes pain in only half of those who suffer from the condition.
Generally, doctors recommend a change of footwear for people who have bone spurs on their heels. Dr John G Kennedy, a foot and ankle surgeon at New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery, advised, “If people wear the right shoes, most heel spurs will stop causing pain, even though the spurs themselves don’t go away.”
While attending college, Donald Trump played football, tennis, squash and golf, apparently without his heel spurs causing any problems.
Last December, Trump’s longtime personal physician, Dr Harold N Bonstein, stated that, over forty-years, his patient had “no significant medical problems”. Dr Bonstein made no mention of bone spurs.
When challenged this week by the New York Times about the bone spurs that exempted him from having to serve his country, Trump said they had been “temporary”, adding, “over a period of time, it healed up”. He described visiting a doctor who gave him a letter, granting him exemption from military service, but Trump could not remember the doctor’s name.
Donald Trump – idiot and coward.
