Donald Trump on: What Is 2 + 2?

Donald TrumpDonald Trump answers the question: What is 2+2?

“I have to say a lot of people have been asking this question. No, really. A lot of people come up to me, and they ask me. They say, ‘What’s 2+2’? And I tell them, look, we know what 2+2 is. We’ve had almost eight years of the worst kind of math you can imagine. Oh, my God, I can’t believe it. Addition and subtraction of the 1s the 2s and the 3s. It’s terrible. It’s just terrible. Look, if you want to know what 2+2 is, do you want to know what 2+2 is? I’ll tell you. First of all the number 2, by the way, I love the number 2. It’s probably my favorite number, no it is my favorite number. You know what, it’s probably more like the number two but with a lot of zeros behind it. A lot. If I’m being honest, I mean, if I’m being honest. I like a lot of zeros. Except for Marco Rubio, now he’s a zero that I don’t like. Though, I probably shouldn’t say that. He’s a nice guy, but he’s like, ‘10101000101,’ on and on, like that. He’s like a computer! You know what I mean? He’s like a computer. I don’t know. I mean, you know. So, we have all these numbers, and we can add them and subtract them and add them. TIMES them even. Did you know that? We can times them OR divide them, they don’t tell you that, and I’ll tell you, no one is better at the order of operations than me. You wouldn’t believe it. So, we’re gonna be the best on 2+2, believe me.”

    • I lost it reading it. But I’m sure he just took some particular speech by Trump and put in “2+2.” It is exactly what Trump has to say about everything.

      You might be right about Gerson. In fact, it’s possible that the entire Republican Party since Reagan was satire, but they just forgot and now actually believe this nonsense.

    • I used to live in a building owned by Capone. In the basement you could still see the ramps used for the booze trucks. Saint Paul has a fine history of corruption; the deal during Prohibition was that any gangster would have safe haven in the city so long as he committed no violent crime. After Prohibition ended, though, things got a little wild; there was no money in illicit booze anymore, and gangsters took to kidnapping members of rich families for ransom. Which never ended well for either party.

      I wonder if Bill Clinton doesn’t sometimes wish he had just been a brothel owner. Life would have been so much simpler . . .

    • That does look fascinating. I will try to find some time for it. Sam Smith sounds like a very interesting guy. But I am crushed for time right now.
