Donald Trump has been claiming reporters are misinterpreting his words, making him sound stupid / insane and causing his plummeting poll numbers. Well Donny, man up and face reality. Heed Gump’s wisdom, “Stupid is as stupid does.”
1. Your words do make you sound stupid / insane.
2. Your drop in the polls is your own damned fault.
3. You cannot expect levelheaded reporters to kiss your butt.
Who you really need to worry about are your mentally unbalanced supporters, who do kiss your butt… who could misinterpret your words (e.g. re the Second Amendment) and endanger your political rival’s very life.
