Andrea Mitchell on Donald Trump: "He is completely Uneducated About Any Part of the World." Well somebody's going to get a nasty tweet now aren't they?

Andrea Mitchell was not the only journalist to express shock at Trump's lack of knowledge concerning world affairs, here is how Eugene Robinson responded to that Washington Post interview: 

Donald Trump’s ignorance of government policy, both foreign and domestic, is breathtaking. The Republican Party is likely to nominate for president a man who appears to know next to nothing about the issues that would confront him in the job.

Here is the transcript of the interview, just in case you think these journalists are exaggerating. But I warn you, some of your brain cells may not survive the experience.

    Andrea Mitchell just noticed Trump is a problem. Golly, quick on the uptake there, Andrea.

      Andrea Mitchell. She married her second husband, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, twenty years her senior, on April 6, 1997. HE WAS A PRODIGIOUS PART OF THE PROBLEM WE HAVE NOW! Fuck that MSM BITCH!

    Not only is he uneducated but like his soul mate, Palin, I suspect that he is also uneducable because of his ego and narcissism in spite of him having a "very good brain."

      Someone must have been paying off his teachers to give him passing grades when he was in school that continued on through his college education (if it's true he obtained a degree?).

      Kind of reminds me of Sarah Palin - we've never seen her degree from Idaho even though it was asked for many times!

    Andrea Mitchell had zero problem with Palin and got a lot of airtime interviewing her out in Bristol Bay, and somehow ignored how ignorant Palin was/is?

    More details to make Trump even harder to listen to: He repeats the last part of his sentence: says it twice. Then follows it with "Trust me," or something similar.

    Do you think any Repub learned ANYTHING re a totally uneducated candidate? If the 2012 is any indicator, I say NO.

    Trump is right up there with Palin on much he does not know. He who does not know history is bound to repeat it.

    I read the transcript of his interview with sheer horror. Like Sarah, Trump doesn't even know what he doesn't know. A 10th grader taking basic world history knows more than these two.

      I too have thought this from the start: Trump has never been interested in the POTUS job -- it's an ego thing. PLUS I have suspected that his financial condition is actually dire: if it implodes, he is toast. It is all so very leveraged. So I always thought he was trying to bolster his brand, to avoid the imminent implosion. Think how Madoff might have kept going awhile longer with a better stock market and better PR.

    Just like with Palin, the slavering media lapped up her idiocy because it made money for them that didn't look like it was going to dry up any time soon. Meanwhile, the rest of us are shocked and confused by the popularity of rude, crude idiots spewing hate to slavish worshippers. On the day Turnip's WP interview was published, so was our President's speech from Cuba, and the comparison of the two was clear as day. Turnip is an idiot, and now the media is making money writing about how bad he is. Too late, Andrea. Way too late.

      JUST IN: Trump Campaign Strategist Defiantly Resigns And Releases Damaging Inside Information

      A former Trump strategist penned a scathing open letter blasting the GOP front-runner, while addressing the hotel magnate’s supporters, too.

      “I don’t think even Trump thought he would get this far,” Stephanie Cegielski wrote in a post which was published on XOJane. “And I don’t even know that he wanted to, which is perhaps the scariest prospect of all.”

      ‘Trump never intended to be the candidate, but his pride is too out of control to stop him now,” she writes.....

    Just because Trump has a better vocabulary than S. Palin and occasionally reads a newspaper doesn't eliminate the ignorant bullying aspect of both their personalities. Both are psychologically incapable of focusing on anything other than themselves for longer than 15 seconds and as one poster put it, all a foreign gov't would have to do is make fun of Trump's hands and welcome to WW III.

    Can't believe Trump admitted it but he as much as said to the W.P. editorial board that he'll say or do anything to get elected and then as President, he'll be a different person. That may be but who and what is the "real" person he plans on being as President?

    I read the article. As ignorant as Trump is on policy, he inserts just enough "magical wordage" to keep his followers satisfied. Things about China having an unfair advantage in trade, etc. His explanation of how he would solve inner city blight (spoiler alert-it involves cheerleading and spirit) or his take on negotiating with Iran (pretty much his Mexican wall plan-tell them to do it and they do it) were hilarious and scary as hell, at the same time. But, the nearest answer to everything is the one I am hoping he uses when debating the Democratic nominee-I can't tell you my plan, otherwise our enemies will know it, too! Fucking brilliant!

  35. I have always been an ardent defender of a free and open press; these days I have to qualify my defense. I am only a defender of a responsible, investigative press. What passes for journalism these days is armchair journalism conducted in front of a monitor or political entertainment.

    Mitchell is so late this party she should be embarrassed. Since the beginning of the Trump campaign, ordinary individuals have been saying what she and so many others have apparently just arrived at--Trump is an empty suit.
    Trump speaks in glittering generalties, never specifics, never nuts and bolts, never policy.

    Would you hire a mechanic who told you he loved cars, that he can fix things when others can't, that you'll be so satisfied with his work without actually telling you what the problem is, what it will take to fix it, and how much it will cost? That's the bill of goods Trump has sold the media and a significant number of Americans. Because who better to take on terrorists and solve all other problems than a lifelong real estate developer?
