Trump's Top 10 moments of presidential idiocy, according to Salon magazine

The author admitted that it was very difficult to narrow it down. No surprise there.


1) That time Trump suggested injecting household cleaners into people's lungs to cure them of the coronavirus.

2) That time he looked at a solar eclipse without eye protection after everyone was repeatedly told not to look at the eclipse without eye protection.

3) That time he couldn't admit he was wrong when he tweeted that Hurricane Dorian was going to hit Alabama, and so he drew on a weather map with a Sharpie to make it seem like he was right.

4) That time he threw paper towels at people in Puerto Rico who had just endured Hurricane Maria.

5) That time he asked members of the National Security Council if they could nuke hurricanes rather than letting them hit the U.S.

6) That time Trump was told to talk about Frederick Douglass at a Black History Month event, clearly had no idea who that was, and while trying to bullshit his way through the talk, implied that Douglass was still alive.

7) That time he suggested that his much-desired border wall could just maybe be buttressed with alligator moats.

8) That time he asked Canada's prime minister, Justin Trudeau, "Didn't you guys burn down the White House?"

9) That time Trump "liked" a tweet praising Rihanna.

10) When he called the Second Epistle to the Corinthians "Two Corinthians."

More context on each of these items at the source:

1. I think his pointless tear-gassing of protesters so he could hold up a bible should be #2.

What did he actually think he was accomplishing?

2. There you go!

That didn't make Salon's list and it's definitely a contender. So many boneheaded moments from the manic moron.

3. They forgot when Trump was having a hissy fit in 2017 over Jeff Bezos being a real billionare ...

... because he was getting too good of a deal from the USPS on delivering Amazon's packages so
he said, "Do you know what the post office does for Amazon? They pick up and deliver packages
for them."

Gee, Donny isn't that the job of the USPS? BTW the rate that Amazon is charged is set by the
Postal Rate Commission who are appointed by the POTUS.
