Basically, We have an honest but ignorant president, maybe.

www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2020/6/1/21276918/obama-statement-protests-george-floyd-president-trump

Pretty much everyone that I encounter over the years who either voted for President Trump or likes President Trump, the main theme that I hear over and over again is that he’s honest and he speaks his mind.

I think the next thing that I heard, not so much now but a couple years ago when he first got elected, was that people wanted something different.

I know my blog really only gets to people that generally agree with me, and it’s not really going to touch the eardrums of those who might otherwise come upon some considerate sense.

Basically a different kind of president who speaks his mind and is honest. Ok; I’ll give him that. And I won’t even say that those are bad traits; I like those traits, I like someone who speaks their mind and is honest about their opinions and who they are, for sure. I’ll even give him that in as much as he might be seen to be spouting lies, to himself he is being honest, he is having integrity to who he is. OK, I’ll give him that also no problem. 

But what we find with Trump in him doing this is that he’s an ignorant person. He may (or may not) be very financially intelligent; OK, maybe he knows how to be a boss in a company and he knows how to work systems and rules in order to make sure that he stays very wealthy. OK, no judgment there.  As a person, I’m really OK with him doing personal things so far as their abilities and what they feel is good and right. I’m not making a judgment upon him as a person right now ethically.

I’ll even grant that he’s allowed to be ignorant about intellectual kinds of things. No judgment; all of us are ignorant about many avenues of this world.

But in Donald Trump being himself he just shows us that he is only intelligent in a very small domain. 

I believe someone who is running the most powerful country in the world should be intelligent in more than one domain, at that a small domain of finance and manipulation.

I feel that a great country should have a great leader. And I think a great leader should have some sort of intellectualism about them, someway to engage intellectually with that aspect of citizens who, for no mincing of words, are intelligent in many domains, even intellectual. But as well, be intelligent enough to be able to code switch; which is to say to be able to relate, include, and represent people who aren’t intellectualists, whose intellect and interests may be very small and limited.

In short, I think a leader of the United States of America should represent all the people in her or his capacity as leader. I’m not saying that there shouldn’t be politics or they shouldn’t be partisanship or people should not have their opinions about various agendas and how to run government. But I am saying that someone should have the intelligence to at least be able to understand the people that she or he represents. 

And Trump, if we can be honest, does not have that ability.

And honestly, I’m kind of embarrassed for all of us United States citizens; the best we could do is to elect a person that clearly is lacking in so many areas for which even a bad president would have competency.

  1. There are sociopathic con artists who honestly believe they are entitled to cheat others out of anything their marks are stupid enough to let them have. In that sense I guess XLV and his whole Gang Of Pirates are all honorable men and women, but I think they rob us of our sanity and our mother tongue if we grant them that.

  2. And if I can add this quality to the leader: humility with an open mind. What you see in the US today with the riots, has been our daily life for decades over here. The US was a part of this chaos in the ME.
