Trump Tells Fake History of Democratic Party at Wheeling Rally:  Fact checkers are once again shaking their heads in disbelief after President Trump delivered a really bizarre, totally fake history of the Democratic Party’s name to a group of followers at a Saturday night rally in Wheeling, West Virginia.

Now you can say what you want about these Trump rallies, but there’s something quite special about the awesome power of stupid people gathered together in extremely large groups.  Of course, after listening to this speech, if one weren’t properly trained - they might leave the rally with the impression that we actually have a right-wing internet troll sitting the White House - instead of someone looking out for the interests of everyone living in our country.  

And while some are even going so far as to claim the President’s mental faculties appear to be deteriorating, others point out that he’s always been lazy and stupid.  On the other hand, quite a few medical professionals are now arguing that he’s already brain dead, only his mouth and the rest of his body apparently haven’t received the memo as of yet.  

One thing’s for sure, until these endless scandals surrounding the Trump administration are finally resolved - I think a lot of us are gonna need a good, stiff drink.  And while I’m all out booze, word has it that Brett Kavanaugh’s fridge is usually well stocked with plenty of beer.

The problem here , of course, is that there is absolutely no way for stupid people to know, or discover, that they are stupid...

We're stuck with that fact of life and the people who personify it....

Very well said Ron!

The question isn’t whether they can know they are stupid. No cure for that anyway, so not a useful or kind observation made directly.

The question is whether they can know they are wrong. Stupid people learn every day.

This tendency to make up "facts" and history out of whole cloth is probably why he thinks all news is fake.  It's also why he doesn't read.  He trusts the voices in his head and only watches Fox News in order to decide what lie to tell next.

There's a reason, despite that most of them actually are Ivy League educated, that "leaders" of the great country continually call academia and higher education into question. This in spite of the fact that virtually every parent outside the worst trailer parks imaginable, and sometimes even within them, would want their own children to earn a degree and pull the family upward. Hypocrisy anyone?

Why it was ever called the Democratic Party in the first place seems to have been and continue to be misleading.  The Democrat Party is what it is or if Dems continue to identify with misnomer let them at least start calling the Republican Party the Republic Party; whatever the names of either Capitalist, Zionist predator duopolUSt$ one may choose to use to get their point across, their nation's long and seamless history of perpetrating unforgivable terror and horror on Humanity continues without abate, reason, accountability, justice.

@Kosh; "The question isn’t whether they can know they are stupid. No cure for that anyway, so not a useful or kind observation made directly.

The question is whether they can know they are wrong. Stupid people learn every day."

The determination of and distinction between "right and wrong", more often than not., requires a cognitive capacity to recognize, identify, and articulate the existential values that are at the very base of what we understand to be the moral foundation of the "just"society within which we seek to live.

It has been said that Trump is deficient or lacking in those "first principles" that inform and guide us in making decisions re morality and ethics or decisions that require the ability to distinguish between right and wrong.

The fact that Trump resonates with his base is clear and convincing evidence of the fact that they are as "stupid" or as bereft as he is.

The fact that they gather in large numbers represens  a clear and present danger to the nature of our civil society.

"We should never underestimate the power of stupid people gathered in large numbers...."

Yes, stupid people can "learn" the Pavlovian responses needed to function and interact in a "complex" social environment....

But learn what?

Why, do you suppose, we refer to "dog whistles" re racism and bigotry...

Truly Intelligent and enlightened people would not have perpetrated the Holocaust or perpetuated slavery....

The more that we learn the more "stupid" we recognize and acknowledge in such atrocities and yet there are those amongst us who would be more than willing to engage in repeating. and revisiting the ideologies and behaviors that result in such insane inhumanity.....

In my view you can't get more "stupid" than that.

And we need to continually and continuously remind ourselves of that fact.

Hence the "usefulness" of my observation.

It would be rather "stupid"  of you, or anyone else,  to argue to the contrary.

"We should never underestimate the power of of stupid people who gather in large numbers"

The Earth has far too many examples of this, and the horrendous outcomes of such gatherings, in its Herstory.

Specific to the US, I actually find myself agreeing some with moki here, but, more directly, a false narrative has been perpetuated on the "stupid" percent of people in the country, and, it, "The Dunning School" being codified and actually used by the Third Reich in their own materials, and the removal of the true descriptions of the civilizations that were found in North America when Gold Seekers and Religious Zealots first found their way here over the Atlantic, that until these lies are given sunshine our so called divide of tribal bullshit will continue with disastrous results. Few, but some, are pointing out we, the ones who saved the world, Twice so far, have now become a global laughingstock with literally a poorly written Tonight Show monologue knock-off masquerading as a a speech to to the UN providing the guffaws in real time to anyone with a screen.

Great points guys!

Ron,
I’m not arguing that they aren’t stupid. 

Learn what?

Well, to start with, that the beliefs they hold don’t add up to the same things. 

That homosexuality is not a choice and, if you think about it enough, you can figure that out. 

That there is still plenty of racism that we can prove has nothing to do with anything but race. Not wealth, not crime, not culture, just race. 

That people on welfare are not on welfare because they’re lazy. In fact, some people on assistance work multiple jobs.

That the fact that people can work multiple jobs and still be poor is not the fault of the people working.

That all this stuff about letting the rich keep their money and treating freedom from responsibility as more important than helping the poor and the marginal, even with government assistance, has nothing whatever to do with Jesus and, in fact, is pretty much the opposite of what he thought. 

How long a list would you like?
