Trump Consults with a Fool

An interviewer, aware that Trump has a very tiny storehouse of actual information about domestic or international issues, asked a question which has been raised by many others: “Who are you consulting with consistently so that you’re ready on day one?”

It turns out he has only one expert he turns to in order to keep learning: “I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things.”

It is bad business when a person in serious need of a quick education in very important and complex matters has only one advisor. It is worse when that advisor knows nothing. And it is worse still when that know-nothing advisor is oneself. He is a fool who turns to a fool for an education.

Donald Trump makes a bigger fool of himself every time he opens his mouth. He is incredibly inept as a presidential candidate and has few strong points: 1) He is a well-practiced bully; 2) He is an experienced manipulator; 3) He is an accomplished liar.

His popularity is proof that those who still want to call America a Christian nation are quite wrong. A follower of Jesus Christ will recognize that Donald Trump is as unlike Jesus as a person can get. He is much more like Hitler, very much more.
