Trump reports he has a very high level of intelligence

The Post had a conversation with Trump today; it went as well as you’d expect.

In a wide-ranging and sometimes discordant 20-minute interview with The Washington Post, Trump complained at length about Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome H. “Jay” Powell, whom he nominated earlier this year. When asked about declines on Wall Street and GM’s announcement that it was laying off 15 percent of its workforce, Trump responded by criticizing higher interest rates and other Fed policies, though he insisted that he is not worried about a recession.

“I’m doing deals, and I’m not being accommodated by the Fed,” Trump said. “They’re making a mistake because I have a gut, and my gut tells me more sometimes than anybody else’s brain can ever tell me.”

Classic. One, he thinks he has great instincts (wrong), and two, he thinks he knows more than anyone else (so very wrong).

He added: “So far, I’m not even a little bit happy with my selection of Jay. Not even a little bit. And I’m not blaming anybody, but I’m just telling you I think that the Fed is way off-base with what they’re doing.”

Classic. He tells us how bad Jay is, then he says he’s not blaming anybody.

Trump also dismissed the federal government’s landmark report released last week finding that damages from global warming are intensifying around the country. The president said that “I don’t see” climate change as man-made and that he does not believe the scientific consensus.

“One of the problems that a lot of people like myself, we have very high levels of intelligence but we’re not necessarily such believers,” Trump said. “You look at our air and our water, and it’s right now at a record clean.”

The president added of climate change, “As to whether or not it’s man-made and whether or not the effects that you’re talking about are there, I don’t see it.”

Says the imbecile who knows nothing at all about it except that he doesn’t like it. “Very high levels of intelligence” in a pig’s eye.

Trump again questioned the CIA’s assessment that Saudi Arabia’s crown prince ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a contributor to The Post, and said he has considered Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s repeated denials in his decision to maintain a close alliance with the oil-rich desert kingdom.

“Maybe he did and maybe he didn’t,” Trump said. “But he denies it. And people around him deny it. And the CIA did not say affirmatively he did it, either, by the way. I’m not saying that they’re saying he didn’t do it, but they didn’t say it affirmatively.”

He’s just repeating the same twenty stupid words he said about it last week. With all his high levels of intelligence, he doesn’t have enough nous to avoid constantly repeating the same stale formulas over and over and OVER again. That is not a sign of someone with an adept mind. Plus he’s so fucking thick that he thinks the normal explanation of what we can know and what we can’t equals “but they didn’t say it affirmatively.”

The CIA has assessed that Mohammed ordered Khashoggi’s killing and has shared its findings with lawmakers and the White House, according to people familiar with the matter. Intelligence assessments are rarely, if ever, ironclad…

What I’m saying! They’re not going to send him a note saying “We know for positive he did it, Sir!” That’s not what they do. Trump thinks every opinion he has is the certain truth, and people with functioning brains know they never know the certain truth.
