No intelligence… I heard CNN newscaster, Don Lemon utter these words. As he was interviewing a Trump spokesperson about the claim that our former president ordered a wire-tap on Trump’s phone at Trump Tower, he simply asked the spokesperson if President Trump had any ‘intelligence’… and then “So, what your saying is that he has ‘No intelligence’.” I laughed out loud and I am sure that once he said it he knew what it really meant.
Of course our president has no intelligence. Conspiracy theories, die-hard supporters, poor judgement, and a quick finger when it comes to Twitter – he has those in spades… but intelligence he is lacking. He is surprised at the complexity of our healthcare issues, shocked that people are concerned about his connection to Russia, and has mentioned our former president more times in the past six weeks than Obama mentioned Bush in his entire presidency. He is becoming more unhinged as the days pass.
We have weathered more White House scandal than we have seen in decades… and he is just getting started. Wait until he gets on a roll!
Intelligence is the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills, the ability to deal with new or trying situations. Intelligence is what is required to process and synthesize information, to sift through a problem and come up with reasonable solutions. It is the ability to rise to the occasion, use clear language and speak to a topic. It is what we need as a nation.
A man who leads without intelligence is a danger to us all! We are being led by someone with no intelligence… and those who surround him are continuing to make excuses for him and cover it up… Those who surround him need to take his phone at night… give us all a break!
