Donald Trump is not a smart man—and his latest voter fraud statement proves it

Donald Trump claims to have a very, very large brain, and that he is really smart, and a stable genius as shown in the series of tweets below where he claims that he was a successful businessman and top TV star as if that makes him smart. While he may have been successful in the birth lottery having been born into a wealthy family, one cannot say he is particularly smart. Or even in touch with the average American.

His words and actions are that of a petulant child. He is unaware of how the average American even buys groceries.

“You know,” Mr. Trump knowingly told the approving crowd, “if you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card. You need ID.”

Now, I get that he is a person who has never had to step into a grocery store in his life, but even a stable genius he should know that you do not need an ID to buy groceries.

Which leads me to this, possibly the dumbest damn thing I have ever heard, we know he has a lying problem, and maybe this is just a lie, or maybe Donald Trump is really this f*cking stupid.

“The Republicans don’t win and that’s because of potentially illegal votes,” Trump said in an interview with The Daily Caller, a conservative news and opinion site. “When people get in line that have absolutely no right to vote and they go around in circles. Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again. Nobody takes anything. It’s really a disgrace what’s going on.”

Now the odds of this actually happening are between slim, and none, in fact, out of a billion votes cast since between 2000 and 2015 there were 4 cases of voter fraud. There are better odds of being struck by lightning twice, 1 in 9,000,000, than there are of voter fraud like Trump is describing happening.

The ward I vote at has had the same poll workers, for the most part, since I moved here in 2005. One of them is a former coworker. I am fairly confident Tom would catch on to me in with a wig, and hat voting a second time.

The fact of the matter is the struggle to get more than half of the U.S. population to actually vote once.

No matter how they’re measured, U.S. turnout rates have been fairly consistent over the past several decades, despite some election-to-election variation. Since 1976, voting-age turnout has remained within an 8.5-percentage-point range – from just under 50% in 1996, when Bill Clinton was re-elected, to just over 58% in 2008, when Barack Obama won the White House.

In Donald Trump’s fantasy world we evil Democrats are going in and voting, then going out to our cars and putting on Hollywood quality prosthetics to the Mission Impossible theme song just so we can vote a second time. Thwarting his efforts to become supreme world leader. Because all of us live our lives like we are spies working for the Impossible Missions Force.

As a nation, we need to do everything possible to ensure that every adult over the age of eighteen is able to vote. We need to make it easier, not harder to vote by passing ridiculous laws that curtail voting. We also need a leader, someone who actually is smart, to make sure all votes are counted, instead of spouting off ridiculous lies about people going out to their cars after voting and putting on a clown nose and then going back in and voting a second time.

Donald Trump is a megalomaniac, stemming from some kind of brain disorder. It was clearly evident during his childhood. Too bad his parents were so intent on making money that they ignored his sociopathic behavior. The did send him to military school at age 12 as he was so unmanageable—but look how successful that was. Why 30% of the voting public are so blind to his antics and lies is beyond me. The key to voting him out of office is to fire up those who are complacent to vote and to fight voter suppression like we are fighting a… Read more »

So how does one even vote twice. You sign your name when you vote. Does he think the second time they just make up a name and it magically appears on the voting list? He is a mentally disturbed man. This weekend he even said he only had one senator these last two years. He said he did not have the majority such as the house and senate. He also talked about how he tried to get rid of Obamacare and then he was just saying before the midterms that the Repubs would not get rid of pre-existing conditions. Do… Read more »
