#Morongate has now extended into its second week, and while the world has devoted a lot of thought to whether or not Rex Tillerson actually did call Donald Trump a moron (he did), we never really asked ourselves “Why did Rex Tillerson call Donald Trump a moron?” Actually, a “fucking moron,” to be specific.
I think the reason we didn’t ask that question is because we take for granted that Donald Trump is a moron. It’s just understood. Like, if you were to say, “Harrison Ford is a crank,” no one would say, “Why do you say that?” They’d just nod their heads, like “yup.” Trump’s intelligence level is just not something we question. We don’t dig into the specifics. We don’t probe just how dumb he is. We simply accept as fact that he’s a fucking idiot.
I think it’s important, however, that we get to the bottom of this. Just how dumb is the President of the United States? What could he have said that was so stupefyingly imbecilic that the Secretary of State would call him a “fucking moron.” Yes, he’s a moron, but where exactly on the moron scale does he fall?
President Donald Trump said he wanted what amounted to a nearly tenfold increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal during a gathering this past summer of the nation’s highest ranking national security leaders, according to three officials who were in the room.
Trump’s comments, the officials said, came in response to a briefing slide he was shown that charted the steady reduction of U.S. nuclear weapons since the late 1960s. Trump indicated he wanted a bigger stockpile, not the bottom position on that downward-sloping curve.
We have 6,000 nuclear warheads, you guys. That’s enough to blow up the entire world several times over.
Donald Trump wanted 40,000 nuclear warheads.
What a fucking moron.
