Donald J. Trump

By Zeynab Gazal

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” This means that even the viral disease called coronavirus is not as dangerous as ignorance cum stupidity. So hypothetically, any man like Donald J. Trump found of displaying these two cognitive cankerworms in the public is undoubtedly far more dangerous than any disease on earth. 

The question now is: Is Donald J. Trump sincerely ignorant and conscientiously stupid?

A big fat YES! Absolutely, he is. You know why? Ok, let’s explore his public life during his first campaign for presidency and since he managed to become the President of the United States.

Trump’s lack of common sense has turned the known “United States” to “Disunited States”, especially in racial and religious line. Millions of Americans at all socio-economic ladders are now divided more than ever.

This man who lacks administrative strategy and apropos character started division among Americans along religious line long before he even assumed the position of the United States’ President. I remember in 2012, when Trump was responding to a radio interview. While he was fallaciously attacking Barack Obama, he told Americans to desist from associating themselves with Obama because he's a Muslim, for he believed that something is wrong with anyone associated with Islam. This is his words: “He (Barack Obama) doesn't have a birth certificate, or if he does, there's something on that certificate that is very bad for him. Now, somebody told me — and I have no idea if this is bad for him or not, but perhaps it would be — that where it says 'religion,' it might have 'Muslim'.” Only an absurd religious bigot will make such a statement! And in fact to cap it all, he openly declared hatred for Islam and Muslims when he remarked on CNN: I “think” Islam hates us (Americans). What a stupid thought!

To further confirm he’s ignoramus, on March 22, 2016 while talking to Fox Business – Trump called for a total shut down of mosques in the United States, simply because he just ‘felt’ non-Muslim Americans “are having problems with” American Muslims and Muslim immigrants, so Muslim should be allowed to exist in the United States.

In one of his speeches, President Trump revealed his plan and ultimate desire to demolish the religion of Islam from the state, accusing Muslims of terrorism with seemingly no solid evidence. This is like a man blaming a stranger for the terrible behaviour of his own children. Similarly, it is enough to prove the hypocrisy and dishonesty of this man who claimed to 'make America great.’

Donald J. Trump is widely known for his undiplomatic one-sided leadership. Only a conscientiously stupid person will tag an entire nation filled with millions of people criminals and drug cartels, and t “to protect” his co-called people from the stained nation, build walls at the borders. The wall which never lasted for up to a year before it started dilapidating.  

America is not a low intelligent society, and this why they keep hitting Trump back anytime he takes a stupid step. Mehmet Murat ildan would say: "In low intelligent ignorant societies, the clever are denigrated and the stupid are belauded; the brainy are stoned and the dull are held in high esteem! The stupid are always in a tendency to create enemies; on the other hand the clever are always in a tendency to create friendships!” Trust me – the real Americans I know don’t take shit from any leader. Having seen Trump’s advanced level of stupidity, they kicked against this move, even though he arrogantly turned his deafening ears to them, and pathetically got the support of his Republican butt lickers.

It's pathetic to note that somebody who lost his memory when describing Atlantic City - saying “If there is one word to describe Atlantic City, it's Big Business -- Or two words Big Business." -- ("President"(!)) Donald Trump” recklessly called Africa a shit-hole and began 2020 with the ban of the most successful black nation on earth – Nigeria along with other, except one, African countries . He stated that these banned nations posed a threat to the American society and were the reason behind the most recent threats to peace in the States. But to make himself look more ignorant and stupid, statistics proved contrary to that no single Nigerian immigrants, in particular, has ever committed any terrorist act in the States since 1978. Perhaps this is why the public was left with no option but to tag him as a disgustingly assaultive, undeserving President of the United States. Anyway, I don’t blame him. According to C. JoyBell C., “there are people who are generic. They make generic responses and they expect generic answers. They live inside a box and they think people who don't fit into their box are weird. But I'll tell you what, generic people are the weird people. They are like genetically-manipulated plants growing inside a laboratory, like indistinguishable faces, like droids. Like ignorance.”

Donald J. Trump that the world knows understands nothing which isn’t 'America'. He is infected by a much more fatal, non-biological disease called ignorance, which automatically begets racism. This poses inevitable threat to humanity. 

His ideology and racism, backed by false accusations, and fingers that he unjustifiably points at other nations in Africa, Middle East, as well as Asia, most noticeably contribute to favouritism, division and exclusion of certain groups from others. He instead aims to eliminate 'coloured people'. 

In the Middle East, Trump  officially banned most of the powerful citizens of Muslim dominated countries like Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Iran, among others from entering the U.S. by all means. 

Still dissatisfied, he further fuel political rivalry in the region with his military and technical support for Saudi-led Coalition in Syrian and Yemen and his nepotistic peace plan for Israelis and Palestinians, which triggered more disunity and hatred among the two states. In addition, the attack he launched in Iraq in January, for example, killing one of its most significant Iranian Army Generals, proves his level of weakness in international leadership and diplomacy. This Trump first claimed that it’s a payback on the Iranians for previously attack on the American Embassy based in Iraq. But he made a u-turn in another statement where he said that his predecessor had designated the Iraqi Army General a terrorist but did nothing about it.’ So he claimed killing Soleimani as a new star on his shoulder. He noted: “The world should thank me – I’ve killed the world’s number one terrorist.’ What this egotist doesn’t know is that it’s easy to kill a man, but it’s actually difficult to kill his ideology. This reason why over one hundred American forces at an Iraqi airbase became the victim of the Iranian 'payback' missile attacks! So who is at a lose?

The anti-environmentalist Trump isn’t only out of the context of humanity, but is also unrelated to maturity in its entirety. On December 12 2019, he, having taken the United States out of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change,  showed how retarded he is by publicly, and for the second time, mocking the 16 year-old Greta Thunberg after being Time’s Person of the Year. Perhaps, that was his only way to offload the bitter disappointment he felt because she was 'chosen over him'. That, right there, is a President on seat bullying a teenager. How is that even justifiable? No sane man on earth will act this way! Never! Anyway, Charles Darwin in The Descent of Man has summarily described Trump thus: “Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.” 

To cap his stupidity and ignorance, Trump, while looking for another way to loot the purse of the government to build the wall at the Mexican borders, recently accused Mexican beer maker, Corona, of creating and spreading coronavirus across the globe. He what he said:   “You don’t need to be as bigly smart as I am to figure out who’s behind this coronavirus. It’s clearly the Mexican beer makers and their hygiene laws. Their hygiene laws are so lax, unlike ours…‘I’m calling for a complete boycott on all Mexican products until this coronavirus is sorted out. We won’t pay for this, the Mexicans will. Just like the wall. Has that been built yet? I presume so. If not, we need to build it now!” What an inane hallucination! 

Anyway, I strongly believe that no reasonable American masses – white, black, Latinos or native – will call for the return of this heedless ignorant tyrant, unless they too want to experience more catastrophic socio-economic condition for the next four years, and perhaps even beyond. 

In conclusion, I believe it’s a misplacement of priority for Americans to be raising too much alarm over the outbreak of Coronavirus in far China; instead, they should all unite their voices to purge the most dangerous soul on earth stationed at the White House. Perhaps this is why I would leave this with all patriotic American voters: In the words of Stewart Stafford, whether it's personal foibles or a bureaucrat's ego, the stubborn defense of stupidity is unforgivable. I rest my case!
