Let's be honest here. He was an "idiot" look at who's in office now. Do you think it actually takes brains to get in office? You get in with a network of great connections. At least that how it is generally. Ronald Reagan a bloody actor got in. The US presidency is not massively hinged on intelligence, at least not in the last 35 years.

Intelligence mightn't be the barometer but you still need it to get the job.
the average dope doesn't have the capacity to handle the job nor speak to the masses.

Just cos you don't like somebody or they jumble their words doesn't mean they aren't smart.

Now run along...
Not twisting your words... you're the one calling the black man a bomber.... your excuses ring hollow... dunno if your post is racist, or ignorant of reality... but won't be engaging anymore with the likes of that, thank you

Where does trump lie in this average dopeness, and how good is he really, at addressing the masses?

In all fairness Trump is getting stuff done in the background. North Korea was asked to come to the table nicely and when they didnt 200 of their scientist were killed in an "accident" and then they came to the table. Trade with China is being re-negotiated. All these little side shows like "pussy grabbing" and "call girls" are a distraction to the real business.

The only thing that confuses me is why no-one wants to get out of a worthless country like Afghanistan. It has been tried before by countless empires and military minds and failed. Technology is of no advantage in Afghanistan and the cost of extracting the wealth is too high. I was sort of hoping China/Saudi would more in there next

He is pretty good when addressing a room of his own supporters. Not so good at the serious stuff.

Par Obama do you think Bush & Trump have the capacity to be president? They're both supported and propped by much smarter people.

Generally it does mean if someone jumbles up their words they aren't all that smart.

Because smart people can form coherent sentences, arguments with logic and elequence. Not continuously contradict themselves on a daily basis.

What an epitaph.
Owing to the fact that he only served one term, it could be argued that he was only half as bad as the next three presidents.

I wonder will it be unprecedented that a sitting President not only doesnt eulogise a former one, but is banned altogether from the Funeral. Betcha Obama speaks
Trump would only eulogise himself.

Trump doesnt have the charm or grace of Regan, Clinton or Obama. But he has a history of getting results in adverse conditions. He doesnt always succeed (no business man ever does) but he does come out on top more often than not.

He is a fantastic strategist (Beat Clinton with half of the money and without media backing or the old guard of the Republicans). He realised what he could and couldnt win and focused on the place he could win. He will put in place a new infrastructure project in his next term.

My favourite thing he did was get rid of that traitor John Brennan, publicly.
