Before he started his campaign I thought he must be bright even if he was an amoral crook. Now after witnessing this guy, I see that I way overestimated his intelligence.
First, it is painful to see him try to read from a teleprompter or any other text. I am guessing he reads at a fifth or sixth grade level. His vocabulary and syntax are at the same level.
The problem is that fifth or sixth graders are probably 10-12 years old. Chump's constant name calling is more like at a second grade level. I have never heard any grown up name call like this 70 year old.
But this week he demonstrated the mentally of a preschooler. Only a preschooler would fantasize that he or she would rush into a building unarmed and take down an assault weapon carrying gunman. This is a really sick 70 year old. So I now estimate his mental capacity as somewhere between a 4 year old and a 12 year old.
Just as I underestimated his appeal, I way overestimated his intelligence. Now the question will become whether we overestimate the intelligence of the American people. Next time around, I don't think so. Take care.
