100,000 American dead and 225,000 who are now on respirators expected to die, all due to a President who can’t read and now blames Obama, Biden and China
White House staffers all sign the same document as has everyone who works around Trump, a non-disclosure, not about his roaming hands (males and females) but rather his inability to read. They all say the same thing, “no attention span” or “Trump won’t read..he’s too busy.” The reality is illiteracy and a presidency that can only be described as a temper tantrump.
Note: Insiders told us long ago, Trump is illiterate. He keeps Kushner and his daughter around to run interference for him and he uses bluster and anger to hide the fact he simply can’t read.
Trump claims he is ADD and snorts Adderall to compensate but we have always known better
Of course, born a billioniare, Trump has had people covering for him all his life and his low intelligence has made him both very angry and combined with being the carrier of the Trump family insanity gene…
Daily Beast: President Trump struggles to read U.S. intelligence reports but enjoys the photographs and charts inside them, according to a report from The New York Times. The newspaper spoke to 10 current and ex intel officials said to be familiar with what goes on during Trump’s White House briefings.
Donald Trump proves everyday he is illiterate and lacks focus for detail. It's easier for Trump to tell lies.— Stephen Mintus (@StephenMintus) May 20, 2020
They said the president has an extraordinarily short attention span and won’t read papers, instead relying on gossip from conservative media and his friends such as former casino tycoon Steve Wynn. Joseph Maguire, the former acting director of national intelligence, reportedly told officials to remember Trump’s reality-TV background and think of him as a performer who is always putting on a show. From The Week:
“If you’re reading this sentence, you’ve read more than the president has today.
Last month, The Washington Post reported that President Trump ignored “more than a dozen’ intelligence briefings in January and February warning him of the coronavirus. They were in the President’s Daily Brief, which the president doesn’t read.
White House trade adviser Peter Navarro wrote a memo in January warning of ‘a full-blown coronavirus outbreak on U.S. soil.’ Trump said he didn’t see it because “Peter sends a lot of memos,” none of which he reads.
After failing to read about the coronavirus, Trump failed to respond to it. It’s not a stretch to say that if the president read, thousands of lives might have been saved.
Trump’s ghostwriter for The Art of the Deal, Tony Schwartz, speculated that Trump has never read a single book in his adult life, not even a book about him or “by” him, of which there are 17. Trump pretends to have written more books than he pretends to have read.
In an interview on Crossfire in 1987, Trump mentioned Tom Wolfe as one of his favorite authors. Seconds after saying he had not read The Bonfire of the Vanities, Trump said, ‘I really like Tom Wolfe’s last book,’ which was The Bonfire of the Vanities.
In 2015, Joe Scarborough asked Trump if he could read. After some awkward silence, according to Scarborough, ‘Trump quietly responded that he could while holding up a Bible.’
When Megyn Kelly asked him about the last book he read, Trump replied, “I read passages. I read areas. I’ll read chapters. I don’t have the time.” Trump didn’t have time to read the last book he read.
Reading — even about oneself — requires focus, and Trump has none. ‘It’s impossible to keep him focused on any topic, other than his own self-aggrandizement, for more than a few minutes,’ Schwartz said.”
Trump’s non-reading evinces not stupidity so much as incuriosity. Narcissists are easily bored, and Trump is no exception. In his 1990 book, Surviving at the Top, which he didn’t write, Trump says that travel, exercise, and successful people bore him. “I get bored too easily,” he says. “My attention span is short.”

Although he doesn’t like reading the reports, the newspaper was told that Trump does like to examine graphs, charts and, particularly, satellite photographs. Robert O’Brien, the national security adviser, disputed the characterization of Trump, saying he has a “laser-focused” attention to detail.
"Trump is devoid of humor – his idea of a joke is a vacuous comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.— William Byng (@WByng) May 14, 2020
He not only talks in crude, witless insults, he actually thinks in them. His mind is a bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices & knee-jerk nastiness"
