A Debate Postscript: How Ignorant Is Trump?

Paul has already noted one of the strangest incidents in last night’s debate, when Donald Trump repeatedly talked about judges signing “bills.” Before the debate fades into history, let’s go to the tape. It’s short:

Three times, Trump says his sister and Sam Alito signed the same bill. As Paul politely put it, judges don’t sign bills. I would say, how did this knucklehead get through the eighth grade?

We are faced with a likely presidential nominee who has no idea what a bill is, as opposed to a judicial opinion. I never imagined that this could be possible. It is like hiring someone to manage a major league baseball team who is unfamiliar with the terms “hit” and “out.” To the extent that there are know-nothings in the electorate, they obviously have found their candidate.

Hillary Clinton isn’t much of an intellect, but I am afraid she will make Trump look like an idiot. Even in the degraded culture of 21st century America, it is questionable whether someone perceived as an idiot can get more than 46% or 47% of the vote.
