They are pretty good about censoring some stuff, but a lot gets by.


also could be a decision to leave it in for all to see his dimness.

41. Wharton is a school within University of Pennsylvania.


University of Pennsylvania has 12 schools.
Harvard is the same...one school is Harvard Law School.

Interestingly to me is most graduates will say they went to Harvard, but not mention
their school unless asked about their graduate degree, then will say Harvard Law or Economics, etc.

Trump always name drops Wharton, but there is no proof he actually got the 2 year BA degree.
Since the record is sealed no one knows.
Tho why one would hide the fact of their college degree beats me.

51. One of the least admirable traditions of the Ivy League

Is the "Gentleman's C". It is a passing grade given to members of "good families" (Hi, George W Bush) or to those whose families have donated large amounts of money to the school. I have no doubt that's how Trump get his degree from Penn -- Fred Trump bought it.

16. They believe it because they are just as stupid.

Or, they are stupider! They do not know what per capita means, either. Some of them may have looked it up by now. However, they will find a way to twist themselves into pretzels and convince themselves that he knew what he was talking about when he discussed "per capita."

-Thinks only the "elites" know them thar fancy words.

-Get aroused when he shows his ignorance.

-Totally ate it up like a nest full of baby robins waiting for his vomited Ambrosia.

Ask him a simple question. Go ahead. He'll never give you a straight answer.
He can't. I mean, he wouldn't even if he could, but he's incapable.
He'll babble in circles for three solid minutes and any answer he gives you will still be wrong.

25. The Russians Picked Their Candidate Well!

I heard that the producers who of The Apprentice originally approached Vladimir Putin wanting to do a reality show on a Russian oligarch; Putin sent them to Donald Trump. Even way back then, Putin had his sights on the long game: First, use this reality show to cultivate an image of Donald Trump as a successful businessman in the eyes of his MAGAts to be, and then get Trump to do a run for the White House, with their cyber-backing.
