The thing about Trump that is seldom mentioned

There is a fact about  Donald Trump that is seldom broached in accounts of his behavior.  But it is apparent in what he says and does.  Donald Trump is an incredibly stupid man.  He has the intelligence of a bucket of rocks, and he constantly puts it on display.

Lately, however, some news sources have compiled accounts of Trump's stupidity.  Salon put together a list of Trump's most stupid acts:

1)That time Trump suggested injecting household cleaners into people's lungs to cure them of the coronavirus.

2) That time he looked at a solar eclipse without eye protection — after everyone was repeatedly told not to look at the eclipse without eye protection. 

3) That time he couldn't admit he was wrong when he tweeted that Hurricane Dorian was going to hit Alabama, and so he drew on a weather map with a Sharpie to make it seem like he was right. 

4) That time he threw paper towels at people in Puerto Rico who had just endured Hurricane Maria.

5) That time he asked members of the National Security Council if they could nuke hurricanes rather than letting them hit the U.S. 

6) That time Trump was told to talk about Frederick Douglass at a Black History Month event, clearly had no idea who that was, and while trying to bullshit his way through the talk, implied that Douglass was still alive. 

7) That time he suggested that his much-desired border wall could just maybe be buttressed with alligator moats. 

8) That time he asked Canada's prime minister, Justin Trudeau, "Didn't you guys burn down the White House?”

9) That time Trump "liked" a tweet praising Rihanna. 

10) When he called the Second Epistle to the Corinthians "Two Corinthians."

This leaves us to ponder about the intelligence level of the nation that elected him to be its president.

My father would have observed: He fell from the top of the stupid tree, hit every branch on the way down, climbed to the top, and repeated the exercise.

We can never leave out the SCORES of rape and sexual misconduct allegations woman, including his ex-wife, have admitted publicly. They came forward with nothing to gain other than to warn other women. The humiliation missed Trump.
