After a Lifetime of Failure, Trump Finally Admits He’s a Total Idiot Asking ‘What the Hell Do I Know’?

Before Donald Trump, there was never a president with such a long record of business dealings that have gone south. And that doesn’t mean to Mexico. Trump’s accumulated failures must have set a record for pure incompetence. But his psychotic narcissism makes him think that he’s some kind of business genius, never mind all of the evidence to the contrary.

This unique combination of blunder and bullheaded conceit has resulted in a president who has the blind lunacy to post the following tweet in all seriousness:

So Trump’s advice to Boeing is to fix the problem that has caused two airliners to crash killing hundreds of people. Wow! I’ll bet Boeing never thought of that. Furthermore, Trump thinks it would be a good idea for the company to develop some “additional great features.” How does Trump think of these things? Nobody else could ever have imagined such a brilliant concept. These brainstorms are on a par with his plan to build a useless vanity wall along the southern border, and to give rich people tax cuts, ballooning the national debt by trillions of dollars.

As for Trump’s fabled expertise with business and branding, all we need to do is look at his collection of enterprises that he stamped his name onto that are all now defunct:

  • Trump University
  • Trump Steaks
  • Trump Water
  • Trump Air Shuttle
  • Trump Vodka
  • Trump Magazine
  • Trump Taj Mahal (and three other casinos)

Trump’s steel trap mind has also noticed that no other company’s brand has ever suffered like Boeing is now. He must never have heard of Tylenol, or Enron, or BP’s Deepwater Horizon, or Martin Shkreli’s Turing Pharmaceuticals, or the Exxon-Valdez. But never mind all of that. Trump says that Boeing can just change the name of the jet that crashed and all will be well. And then he tacks on in closing “But again, what the hell do I know?” Ironically, that’s actually is a darn good question. Does anyone have an answer?

Fox News vs Itself: Shep Cuts Off Conspiracy Nut’s Notre Dame Fire Rant, Hannity Embraces It

The heartbreaking news from Paris has caused shock and despair around the world as the famed, iconic, 800 year old Notre Dame Cathedral was engulfed in flames. The sight of this majestic testimony to the brilliance and creativity of humankind crumbling into ashes was literally painful to watch. Every decent citizen of the Earth is feeling the loss today.

So that leaves the indecent cretins with plenty of opportunity to demonstrate how repulsive they can be. And they lost no time in taking advantage of this tragic event. One of them was French official, Philippe Karsenty, who called into to Fox News and was interviewed by Shepard Smith. Karsenty is a right-wing character who regularly espouses ludicrous conspiracy theories and was recently convicted of defamation. His exchange with Smith nearly devolved into another fruitcake tirade until Smith cut him off (video below):

Karsenty: It’s like a 9/11, it’s a French 9/11. It’s a big shock. We’ve had churches desecrated each and every week all over France. So, of course, you will hear the story of the political correctness which will tell you it’s probably an accident.
Smith: Sir, sir, we’re not going to speculate of the cause of something that we don’t know. If you have observations or you know something, we would love to hear it.

Of course, Karsenty had nothing to offer other than his wild speculation. So Smith ended the interview and gave this admonition to any other conspiracy theorists and the weak, gullible minds they seek to disinform:

Smith: We’re not doing that here, not now, not on my watch. The man on the phone with us has absolutely no information of any kind about the origin of this fire and neither do I. The fire investigators will at some point come to a determination about what caused this and conspiracy theories about anything are worthless and in many cases counterproductive and injurious to society. And those who entertain them are not acting in the best interests of the people of this planet.

Well said, Shep. As for “those who entertain” such nonsense, one of Shep’s network colleagues may be among the first to dive further into the conspiracy soup. Sean Hannity told his radio audience that terrorism may have played a role in this fire. He had no facts, or even vague insinuations, to back that up. It was pure exploitation and fear mongering. What’s more, the wingnut Gateway Pundit and ex-Sputnik shill, Cassandra Fairbanks, praised Hannity and called Smith an “arrogant pompous douche.” And finally, Donald Trump himself weighed on the fire story:

Really? Trump is telling the French first responders to “act quickly,” something they probably never thought of. And his advice to have tankers drop thousands of pounds of water on the already damaged and fragile structure was immediately dismissed as incredibly stupid. But then, what else would you expect from Trump?
