Remember when it all began?

Somebody sent this to me, and after SNL's premiere on Saturday I thought we could all use a trip down memory lane back to when Donald Trump, his campaign, and his earliest supporters were just one big joke.

They are still a joke, but the problem is that so many people in this country do not seem to recognize one when they see it.

    Palin's sing song rhyming speeches did channel Dr. Seuss books which may be at the cognitive level of the base of support.

    To many people suffer from the Dunning-Kruger Effect

    Are Trump Supporters Too Dumb To Know They’re Dumb? Science Says “Probably”

    the Dunning-Kruger effect is present everyone all across the political spectrum, and indeed, in every walk of life. We all overestimate our abilities and knowledge somewhere. However, the effect is especially pronounced in people with limited intellectual and social skills:

    “[P]eople who are unskilled in [intellectual and social domains] suffer a dual burden: Not only do these people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices, but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it.”

    So basically, yes, it’s possible to be too dumb to realize you’re dumb.

    In four separate studies, people who scored in the bottom quarter on tests involving everything from humor to logic, and even to grammar, grossly overestimated where they thought they would score. They averaged scores in the 12th percentile, while their average estimate of their own scores was the 62nd percentile.

    The researchers attribute that huge discrepancy to a literal inability to distinguish accuracy from error. Or, to put it another way, those who are the most lacking in skills and knowledge are the least able to see it.

      Trump loves them. He says he loves the uneducated. Because even Donald Trump knows better than to say he loves the too stupid to know they're stupid. They *are* his base.

    Obama Sees 'Straight Line' From Sarah Palin To Donald Trump

    ByCaitlin MacNealPublishedOctober 3, 2016, 8:28 AM EDT

    In an interview published on Sunday, President Obama said that the nomination of Sarah Palin as the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008 marked the beginning of a shift in the Republican party that led to the rise of Donald Trump.

    "I see a straight line from the announcement of Sarah Palin as the vice-presidential nominee to what we see today in Donald Trump, the emergence of the Freedom Caucus, the tea party, and the shift in the center of gravity for the Republican Party," Obama told New York Magazine.

    “Here comes Big Daddy,” she said, clapping. “The Donald. Big Daddy.”
    The first time she had seen him, at a rally in June, she was just beginning to realize how many people saw the world the way she did, that she was one among millions. At the time, her hips were still sore from a series of injections intended to calm her. She had gotten them in February, during a difficult time in her life, when she had been involuntarily hospitalized for several weeks after what she called a “rant,” a series of online postings that included one saying that Obama should be hanged and the White House fumigated and burned to the ground. On her discharge papers, in a box labeled “medical problem,” a doctor had typed “homicidal ideation.”

    Donald Trump Demeaned Female 'Apprentice' Contestants: AP Investigation

    NEW YORK — In his years as a reality TV boss on "The Apprentice," Donald Trump repeatedly demeaned women with sexist language, according to show insiders who said he rated female contestants by the size of their breasts and talked about which ones he'd like to have sex with.

    The Associated Press interviewed more than 20 people — former crew members, editors and contestants — who described crass behavior by Trump behind the scenes of the long-running hit show, in which aspiring capitalists were given tasks to perform as they competed for jobs working for him....

    Eight former crew members recalled that he repeatedly made lewd comments about a camerawoman he said had a nice rear, comparing her beauty to that of his daughter, Ivanka....

    Randal Pinkett, who won the program in December 2005 and who has recently criticized Trump during his run for president, said he remembered the real estate mogul talking about which female contestants he wanted to sleep with, even though Trump had married former model Melania Knauss earlier that year: "He was like 'Isn't she hot, check her out,' kind of gawking, something to the effect of 'I'd like to hit that.' " ....

    "We were in the boardroom one time figuring out who to blame for the task, and he just stopped in the middle and pointed to someone and said, 'You'd f*** her, wouldn't you? I'd f*** her. C'mon, wouldn't you?'"...

    Maybe I missed an announcement but I notice your blog is no longer emphasizing Palin. What's the long term plan here? I see that it's no longer just Palin we need to be concerned with, she was the brood mare for Trump and some other loonies out there.

      May I add to your good response the fact that Palin is not running in this election -- said election much more important than the grifter family that has not been seen for sometime. In fact, Trump kicked her to the curb. The only thing he's done that I agree with!!!

      I also see it that should Anon 6:20 want Palin stories 247 -- she find somewhere that does that.

      As for Gryphen having to explain a 'long term plan' -- NOT. It's his blog for which he can write what he wants with most certainly no explanation to 'Anon 6:20. If anyone doesn't like it -- go elsewhere. No one is twisting their arm to click on the site.

    I posted on a blog of Gryphen's a week or two ago and it keeps within the topic of this blog topic --

    What is the difference between Trump and Palin.

    My answer was 'She wears a skirt'.

    My meaning is that they are two peas in a pod -- they're both liars, frauds, grifters etc (list too long to post) and would screw every one of us to enrich themselves as they have done. Her PAC was her family slush fund as for him -- his foundation and 'bankruptcies', Trump U, brand name sale for which there are annual fees in the mega millions for use of his name and of course non-payment of income tax (again, too many to list).

    Remember too the reent story of Eric Trump's foundation paid over $800,000 to pay to golf. That's another family slush fund.

    You could be guaranteed now Palin has accountants/lawyers that file tax returns that she'd pay minimal if any taxes for the income earned via Fox, when she did do speeches, use of the house as a studio, etc.

    Trump’s actual sexism is exactly the sort of politics Stone specializes in. And it’s precisely the mentality driving this year’s Republican campaign.

    From 250,000 Apprentice applicants on Season One, wouldn't doubt it that Donnie reviewed pictures of the women because he needs a pretty face with a nice body and huuge breasts (that would be KRISTI FRANK) to attract male viewers (no flat chested losers) for his show. Donnie is sort of a hands on boss who demands pretty female restaurant employees so he went out got a pretty one for his Apprentice show.

    Oh crap Donald Trump did you pick the wrong one to marry?

      Sarah Palin is not jealous. Sarah is smarter. We know Sarah has a journalist degree from five schools and she has bigger huuuge breasts too.

      She has TWO degrees. That is a Masters of Science in Engineering. You can't get a masters until you have a bachelors.

      Donald likes his women pretty and DUMB. Probably another reason why he dumped Ivana.

      My Dad had a friend like that. He would marry women from Vietnam. As soon as they learned to speak English well enough and started to show some independence, he'd divorce them and find another one. He wanted them ignorant and dependent on him.

    Ah yes, the Iowa endorsement. Where he fidgeted with the goofy expressions, and he was never onstage beside her again. Oklahoma was the stop afterward, second leg, as he was on the floor watching. Then back to Alaska, feigning honestly real family issues that she never let get in her way before, then decided that the RNC was "too far to come."

    In her sing song voice that Tina emulates so well, only months earlier proclaimed that she couldn't wait to "get out there on the trail" and meet with rill Americans that make this country so great. So, why is she sitting on her bony ass in the dead lake compound?

    Anyone see any down ticket candidates so pleased to gain her endorsement? No? Her name has become synonymous with moron; who would?

    You can bet that Miss I Don't Need A Title" is still doing her dirty work underneath, and she's been told to shut up. This month's SarahPAC filing will be interesting.
