* "The money is pouring into NATO coffers" - not how NATO works

* "immigrants are streaming across borders like never before" - 46 year low

* "Trade deal are killing the American economy" - profits have never been higher

* The Swedish terror attack that didn't exist

* The caravan story that was completely wrong

* The Bowling Green massacre

The list is pretty infinite. And his modern solution to border crossings is a massively expensive medieval structure similar to the French Maginot line (which, btw, would be bookended by oceans)


So however smart he was then, he's now a clueless fool.
I don't think that's a list of examples of him being an idiot. He is basically selling everyone within his reach what they want. For example if I was to do the same here I'd post a meme of a dog running around a golf course with an expensive earphones while his master is parking a BMW badly. Done, I'd get so many likes I'd be popular!

Now, reading a room and being able to actually be factual while negotiating a deal with long term implications to peoole is hard as we saw with the tpp and the Syrian refugees in Europe. A politician that can actually appeal to voters enough to get them to work with them for a better future is something we haven't had in a while.

"ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country." I'm not sure I translated that correctly but some redhead who didn't get much love from Texas said that.
