When you are so stupid to actually think you are the smartest guy in the room, you end up saying and doing a lot of very stupid things.

Some Trump classics I recall:

Nobody knew health care would be so complicated!

Can’t we just nuke the hurricane?

A friend of mine said to me; Who knew there were so many countries?

Can’t we just inject the bleach and do a cleaning inside the lungs? Or use the UV light on the insides to kill the virus? Can we look into that?

Trump on national tv proudly claiming how he ”aced” a cognitive test as if it was a test on intelligence! In reality it is a test that is designed to be so simple, that only those with serious cognitive impairment (think alzheimers) would have difficulty.

Using a sharpie to re-draw a hurricane track to prove it was heading where he said.

Suggesting that countries like Finland rake their forests. And the US should as well.

He openly admitted that he thought Finland was part of Russia.

He said that Belgium was a beautiful city.

When meeting with leaders of the Baltic nations, he introduced them as from the Balkans.

When discussing building the wall on the Mexican border, he talked about the section bordering Colorado!

Recently, Trump claimed we would be done with the virus once we achieve herd mentality!

I could go on as there are so many more, but you get the picture. Is it any wonder why so many people outside of the US think he is a clown.
