Proves the point about his idiot base. He connects to them because he speaks at their illiterate level.

Trump would not be where he is at without the continued help from willing enablers. Some just think he is cute laughable caricature of a human clown. While others see him for what he is and know just how to play it to their advantages. Then there of course those who took the hook to the gills in blind obedience because he is a bigot racist like them.

No wonder Zero and Whell identify with their Dear Leader so readily.
Obama and Carter did indeed come across as condescending, and Trump is always addressing his base.

The average American reads at the 9th grade level. The average newspaper is written at the 11th grade level. Both are well above the level of Trump and his idiot base, which I suppose is why they feel they are being condescended to. Fox "News" must surely match the 4th grade level of its idiot viewers.

LeBron James on MLK Day and Trump

“We are in a difficult state right now as Americans, with the leader of our country,” James observed. “We all have to continue to come together and shine a brighter light on — I don’t want to use the word stupidity, but that’s basically what it comes down to.”

“The state of racism will never die, but what we cannot do is allow it to conquer us as people,” James explained.

“The guy in control has given people and racism, and negative racism, an opportunity to be out and outspoken without fear. And that’s the fearful thing for us because it’s with you, and it’s around every day, but he’s allowed people to come out and just feel confident about doing negative things,” James continued. “We can’t allow that to stop us from continuing to be together and preach the right word of living and loving and laughing and things of that nature. Because would we want to live anywhere else? I don’t think so. We love this place.”

As ignorant and racist as Trump is, I doubt he's stupid enough to take on King James.

Before leaving the White House for Florida on Friday, President Donald Trump encouraged the public to observe Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, "with acts of civic work and community service in honor of Dr. King's extraordinary life" and "his great legacy."

But Trump apparently did not partake in any such service on Monday.

Instead, he spent Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the golf course at the swanky Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The move is a departure from those of his recent predecessors, all of whom did some form of community service on the day during their presidencies, and sometimes after.

Surprise, surprise.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW, castigated Trump in its report, titled, “The Most Unethical Presidency: Year One,” saying his utter dismissal of standard ethics practices has led to legal challenges and scandals that have tainted the office.

This should be fun for a news cycle or two. There is some justice here as it's one psychopath calling the other psychopath a lunatic.

North Korea calls Trump a ‘lunatic’ and a ‘loser’ in response to nuclear button tweet

Quote:
“Trump’s bluff is regarded by the DPRK as just a spasm of a lunatic frightened by the might of Juche Korea and a bark of a rabid dog,” said the report, which summarized a commentary in the ruling party newspaper Rodong Sinmun. DPRK is the abbreviation of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's official name. Juche is the North Korean state ideology, often translated as self-reliance.
Can we have a show of hands to see whose hands are bigger since they both are poised over the N-Button.

Payback for Donny’s general assholiness. Online reviews of his properties describing them as shitholes. He could lose $100 million in four years. Well deserved, Donny, you ass. Resign now, save yourself $millions!
