I am almost through reading the Mueller Report and, although this is not the most important takeaway one can have from reading it, the one takeaway that sticks out to me is – what a fucking moron the President of the United States is. This is not a new insight but it is one that is still remarkable to me two years into this madness. In Section II of the Mueller Report on page 91 under the section titled “The President Asks Corey Lewandowski to Deliver a Message to Session to Curtail the Special Counsel Investigation.” the report details a meeting between Trump and his former campaign manager Lewandowski in which Trump is again fuming over Sessions recusal from the Russian investigation, and our big boy President has the great idea to get Sessions to “unrecuse” (which is of course not a thing) and narrow the scope of the Russian investigation to future election interference. Trump tells Lewandowski to tell Sessions to deliver a speech is which he says the following (according to Lewandowski’s notes)
This is hilarious. Now, I understand that the President in his cheese brain mind would imagine Sessions cleaning up that language a bit but I can’t get the image out of my mind of our big boy President trying to write a very serious sounding speech and it coming out like a college sophomore who hasn’t done the reading and is simply trying to bullshit his way through the discussion. “our President is being treated very unfairly” is something a fifth grader would say not the most powerful person in the world. “He shouldn’t have a Special Prosecutor/Counsel” is something someone unfamiliar with the English language would write. Trump, along with his racism and his grifting of the American people, is also a goddamn moron. The 2020 election is the most important election in American history.
