His alma mater must be so proud!
Donald Trump tweeted today: “Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart.”
No doubt Trump’s “smartness” was shaped by the great college education he received at the University of Pennsylvania. In fact, Trump proudly tells people he graduated at the top of his class.
But with all the fine courses Donald Trump undoubtedly took at UPenn, English could not have been part of his curriculum.
When someone says they are “like” something, they are not actually that thing. They are merely imitating or mimicking that thing.
If Trump wanted to say he is a really smart person, he should have said, “I am a really smart person.” Throw in the modifier “like”, well, he’s actually saying he is not really a smart person.
But grammar aside, Donald Trump did go on to tweet he is a genius.
I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star…to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!
Yes, we have a genius in the White House … even though he may not be the best grammarian.
This is so refreshing after eight years of that dullard Obama!
