Washington Post’s Dana Milbank noted soon after just how frequently Trump reflects on what he assumes others don’t know.
That Bill Clinton signed NAFTA: “A lot of people don’t know that.”
I never thought about who signed it before this election.
What a value-added tax is: “A lot of people don’t know what that means.”
I don’t know what it means.
That we have a trade deficit with Mexico: “People don’t know that.”
I didn’t know this before the election. Did you?
That Iraq has large oil reserves: “People don’t know this about Iraq.”
I vaguely heard something to the effect of “Bush went there for oil”, but that’s the extent of my knowledge on the subject.
That war is expensive: “People don’t realize it is a very, very expensive process.”
This I did know. Yay.
Whether he thinks “people” are incredibly uninformed, or whether he’s simply oblivious himself, will remain a subject of some debate.
I’m an incredibly uninformed people according to this supercilious twat. I’m at a coffee shop right now, and I’d bet good money most people here would fail this weird quiz.
And then the twats will wonder why people don’t vote for them or whomever they support. Yes, it’s a total mystery.
