Donald Trump is soooooo stupid. Donald Trump is a racist and a fascist and a hypocrite and an ignoramus and a narcissist and a buffoon and a bully. Only an idiot would vote for Donald Trump.
So that leaves us two explanations for the events of the past year. Either Donald Trump is incredibly lucky or there are a lot more bigoted assholes in this country than anybody (except for Shaun King and Toure) ever realized.
I’m going with lucky.
Scott Adams on the “Lucky Hitler Hypothesis“:
That filter on reality says Trump is a terrible person on the inside – racist, narcissistic, and uncaring – and his success is due to his under-informed base of supporters plus luck. By this filter, no skill is involved except for the Reality TV kind. He was just in the right place at the right time, and loudly, as always. Hence, Lucky Hitler.
There is another explanation for Trump’s success, but it so far-fetched that no one in their right mind would believe it. According to that insane theory, Trump is a lot smarter than his critics and he knows exactly what he is doing.
But that’s cray cray.
