Trump's Letter to Kim Jong Un Indicates Little Formal Education (Letter Grade "F")

 Image result for dunce

Do you recall back in 2008 when John McCain acquiesced to his party and named Sarah Palin his Vice Presidential running mate? Oh, the communication and cognitive horrors which were put upon us all! Palin was a walking advertisement for better education and required (spectacle) viewing for anyone who harbors disdain for reading.

Do you remember this?

Also, check out the coached hand Steepling. I offered Palin was handed to nonverbal in an effort to promote a false reality of confidence.  

Katie Couric as a highly competent TV journalist (and probably her staff) quickly discerned Palin's was a functional illiterate regarding communications skills. It only took a few weeks of watching and listening for Palin's shortcomings to unfold. Notice, we have avoided any criticism of the former Alaska Governor regarding her diminutive cognitive acuity.   

We are thankful we were not exposed to Palin on a national level any more than the failed McCain/Palin ticket.  Little did we know or suspect what was to come.

America conservatives, Russian and GOP internet operatives, and pathetic and gullible non-voters have handed the nation a horror which surpassed the wildest of nightmares regarding Palin. 

Little did we know of our future.

As for reading, writing and "rithmetic: as we learned from Kindergarten through various levels of primary education; some people even move on to higher levels of education. We would never reserve and promulgate intellect and learned skills (ability) as requisite to lead a happy and productive life only for people who finished high school or who went on the college-level education. However, we believe those who studied beyond their Freshman year of high school possess a certain level of communication acumen. I posit we have every right to expect erudite skill levels from the Oval Office.

In addition to recent analysis of Trump's Tweets and suggestions he may not write all of his tweets, we have empirical evidence of a total lack of learned skills. Trump offers a communications skills void which would lace Palin's in a crevasse with no bottom. 

Trump's letter to Kim Jong UN regarding canceling their planned June 12rthmeting, offers analysis opportunities which couldn't be resisted. Occupy Democrats posted a review of the letter and highlighted the extent of its lack of learned skills. We realize the letter was probably hastily crafted based on one-upping from the Trump team.  They could not allow Kim to place the final nail in the coffin of a summit Trump should not have accepted without close consultation with people well outside of his close an environment of ever-changing advisers.

The letter is, in part, hard to read but we could not locate a more readable copy. 

Any thought?

We really should have an expectation the US President have a much higher level of written communications resulting from leaned cognitive skills. Or, without question, we should feel the president would employ staff to handle critical communications while cloaking her/his inabilities.

We don't have nor can we have such expectation; we elected Trump.

There Is Something Adrift In The White House: Charlatanism

The Russia probe joins the long list of Trump fabrications and false feed to his base. 

Before we start, a special request. If you answered the previous questions with "no", two things come to mind and must be stated. First, you might have tendencies common to Trump Sycophancy. Second, You might wish to click-off this post you will not like what follows.

Speaking of the base, fabrications and purposeful feeding of lie after lie.

Spies in the Campaign?

Look how things have turned around on the Criminal Deep State. They go after Phony Collusion with Russia, a made up Scam, and end up getting caught in a major SPY scandal the likes of which this country may never have seen before! What goes around, comes around!
SPYGATE could be one of the biggest political scandals in history!

Two of the three prisoners were taken during Trump's first year in office.
Obama Taped Trump's Phones
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!
You actually knew it was a lie when you first heard it, right? 

Obama's Birth Certificate

Investigators in Hawaii?

How about this?


Of course, the number of presidential lies is long and exhaustive. I literally awaken each day with a second thought of. "What has Trump lied about overnight?" 

Various print media have reported Trump has documented lies of over 3,000 since taking office. Last June The New York Times published a definitive list of Trump lies. We are linking the piece here, but know it is far too exhaustive to finish the list without the stark reality of a pathological liar. Of course, 11 months later, we are certain Trump's "lie list" has grown exponentially.

We often post about Trump's lies. Our past posts have been pretty much void of comment or written pieces from psychology professional. Yesterday NBC published a piece with comments which indicated Trump's lying is becoming increasingly worse. Here is an excerpt from the piece.
Between when President Donald Trump assumed office in January 2017 and the end of April, the average number of public false or misleading statements he has made per day has been increasing. According to the Washington Post’s fact checkers on May 1, "for the president’s first 100 days, he averaged 4.9 claims a day... since we last updated this tally two months ago, the president has averaged about 9 claims a day." 
This is a significant rise. Our calculations suggest that if the current escalation rate remains steady, by the end of his term the president could be making as many as 19 public false statements a day, on average.
America We Have A Problem.
