Too often the media reports snippets of Donald Trump’s rambling craziness; plucking a sentence or two that make some sense, but taken out of the context of the crazed narrative rant.
To get a full sense of the extent of Trump’s cognitive muddle one needs to see the whole of Trump’s recent ‘toilet’ rant.
The implications that the future of our nation is in the hands of such a mentally crippled man is really quite stunning.
“The light bulb — they got rid of the light bulb that people got used to. The new bulb is many times more expensive and — I hate to say it — it doesn’t make you look as good. Of course, being a vain person, that’s very important to me. It’s like — it gives you an orange look. I don’t want an orange look. Has anyone noticed that? So we’ll have to change those bulbs in at least a couple rooms where I am in the White House. … We have a situation where we’re looking very strongly at sinks and showers. And other elements of bathrooms — where you turn the faucet on, in areas where there’s tremendous amounts of water, where the water rushes out to sea because you could never handle it — and you don’t get any water. You turn on the faucet and you don’t get any water. They take a shower and water comes dripping out, just dripping out, very quietly, dripping out. People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once. They end up using more water. So EPA is looking at that very strongly, at my suggestion. You go into a new building, or a new house or a new home, and they have standards where you don’t get water. You can’t wash your hands practically, so little water comes out of the faucet. And the end result is you leave the faucet on and it takes you much longer to wash your hands. .. For the most part. you have many states where they have so much water, it comes down — it’s called rain. They don’t know what to do with it. … A lot of things we do are based on common sense. If I didn’t get elected you wouldn’t have a steel industry. … We weren’t going to have a steel industry.”
Great Moments In Presidential Speeches:
FDR: “We have nothing to fear, but fear itself”
JFK: “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country”
Trump: “Flush ten, fifteen times”
