One of the first things he did on assuming office was to have his lawyers issue warnings to every school he'd attended not to release his records. We'll never know how well or poorly Donald Trump fared as he passed through the educational machine. One professor from Wharton has said he found Trump pretty stupid but, beyond that...
One subject Trump didn't master was geography. That much emerged at a Trump rally in Pittsburgh where Trump delivered the now obligatory update on his wall along the US-Mexico border.
“You know why we’re going to win New Mexico?” Trump told the crowd on Wednesday, talking about a bona fide border state, which he lost in 2016. “Because they want safety on their border. And they didn’t have it. And we’re building a wall on the border of New Mexico, and we’re building a wall in Colorado. We’re building a beautiful wall. A big one that really works, that you can’t get over, that you can’t get under.”Colorado. The nearest Colorado gets to the Mexican border is 400 miles. Maybe the folks from Colorado have something against the folks from New Mexico or Texas or Oklahoma. Maybe they figure why should they not have a wall, some sort of wall?
I guess we shouldn't be too hard on Trump. Denver is a long way from Mar-a-Lardo.
