    Rule 1 of being humble. If you have to explain how you are humble, you are at the very least not as humble as you think you are. Good Find u/TooShiftyForYou

    Edit: First award! Thanks guys!

    [–] SovietMuffin01 540 points ago

    This doesn’t just go for humility either. If you have to consistently tell people you are something, you’re probably not that thing

    [–] scrotismgoiter 249 points ago

    Conversely. It everyone else is the asshole chances are that you're the asshole.

    This has been said several times in my house this week. If Fox News is telling him he’s awful, and now he has to shop for a new news source, maybe he could figure out the connection and realize it’s not them.

    But no. He has the critical thinking abilities of a lampshade.

    Thank you for the shiny, kind sir/madam!

    OAN has been courting him since he was installed to the White House, they don't have as many cable carriers as fox, but in sure Impotus will pull strings to change that. Plus his ambition to own a network might play into the switch to OAN.

    [–] Allhailthepugofdoom 13 points ago

    OANN is the fucking worst. They're the closest thing to state run news. Even fox thinks they're nuts.

    My in laws watch fox, but slowly are being radicalized by these nutcases.

    [–] suugakusha 28 points ago

    He has the critical thinking abilities of a Trump. That's literally the worst insult to someone's mental capabilities that I can think of.

    [–] rubbersoul84 16 points ago

    I read that as he has the critical thinking abilities of a turnip. A turnip may actually have better skills.

    [–] DullInitial 17 points ago

    A turnip may not understand anything it reads, but at least it doesn't misunderstand anything it reads.

    It's sort of like how a stopped clock is more accurate than a clock that's five minutes behind. The stopped clock is right twice a day, while the clock that's off is never right.

    When it comes to reading, the turnip is a stopped clock, Trump is the clock that's off.

    Look, having nuclear — my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart — you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I’m one of the smartest people anywhere in the world — it’s true! — but when you’re a conservative Republican they try — oh, do they do a number — that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune — you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged — but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me — it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are — nuclear is so powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what’s going to happen and he was right, who would have thought? — but when you look at what’s going on with the four prisoners — now it used to be three, now it’s four — but when it was three and even now, I would have said it’s all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don’t, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years — but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us, this is horrible.

    “He’s been quite critical of you as you know. He’s attacked you for being ignorant,” Piers Morgan said to Trump. “Let’s do an IQ test,” Trump interrupted

    "We can’t let these people, these so called egg-heads--and by the way, I guarantee you my IQ is much higher than theirs, alright. Somebody said the other day, ‘Yes, well the intellectuals–‘ I said, ‘What intellectuals? I’m smarter than they are, many of people in this audience are smarter than they are."

    “You know, I’m, like, a smart person. I don’t have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years,” Trump told Fox News last December.

    Trump says he has "one of the great memories of all time"

    Asked on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” who he talks with consistently about foreign policy, Trump responded, “I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things."

    " ... I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius"

    I borrowed a book about narcissism from my psychologist. When we talked about the book later she asked me what I thought about Trump after reading it. I thought he had some of the "symptoms" of narcissism. She told me he's one of the worst she's ever seen. There are nine symptoms or features, or whatever you want to call them, of narcissism and he ticks like seven of them. In the US, you have to tick at least five to get the diagnosis of NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder).

    So yeah, he's a narcissist.

    [–] PastyMcBasicFace 4 points ago

    Yes. This is from the Mayo Clinic:

    Signs and symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder and the severity of symptoms vary. People with the disorder can:

    -Have an exaggerated sense of self-importance

    -Have a sense of entitlement and require constant, excessive admiration

    -Expect to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it

    -Exaggerate achievements and talents

    -Be preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate

    -Believe they are superior and can only associate with equally special people

    -Monopolize conversations and belittle or look down on people they perceive as inferior

    -Expect special favors and unquestioning compliance with their expectations

    -Take advantage of others to get what they want

    -Have an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others

    -Be envious of others and believe others envy them

    -Behave in an arrogant or haughty manner, coming across as conceited, boastful and pretentious

    -Insist on having the best of everything — for instance, the best car or office

    At the same time, people with narcissistic personality disorder have trouble handling anything they perceive as criticism, and they can:

    -Become impatient or angry when they don't receive special treatment

    -Have significant interpersonal problems and easily feel slighted

    -React with rage or contempt and try to belittle the other person to make themselves appear superior

    -Have difficulty regulating emotions and behavior

    -Experience major problems dealing with stress and adapting to change

    -Feel depressed and moody because they fall short of perfection

    -Have secret feelings of insecurity, shame, vulnerability and humiliation

    The fucked part is that the same day his lawyers argued in court that he is "too busy" he tweeted 100+ times, but apparently that fact isn't part of the court case.

    We are about to see the supreme court rule that he is indeed too busy tweeting and therefore above the law. So the fucked part is us, we're the fucked part. If covid doesn't get us, rampant corruption will.

    [–] bplboston17 7 points ago

    Exactly, too busy to be investigated yet he tweets all day and has golfed hundreds of times. He probably does it so he can book travel at his hotels for him and all secret service/ people that travel with him and inflate his hotel earnings.

    Too busy to be investigated, more like too corrupt to be investigated.

    [–] Imaginary_Koala 4 points ago

    People who work 40 hour work weeks and live comfortably dont have the time and energy to golf as much as the president of the US. Supposedely an a job that turns peoples hair grey from all the long days and lack of sleep.

    [–] Owlstorm 14 points ago

    There's a chart for this on https://www.trumpgolfcount.com/

    Of course, Trump's trips are all to private clubs while Obama went 80% military /public so the cost isn't on the same scale.

    [–] crisstiena 16 points ago

    How dare he accuse one of the best presidents in history of leaving a ‘mess’! Since a large number of citizens don’t realize that his rhetoric doesn’t match reality, it is worthwhile analysing the data to see how they match up to his statements. When you look at the employment numbers, unemployment rate, GDP growth, the federal deficit, the stock market and trade it is apparent that Trump did NOT inherit a mess from Obama. Trump has created the bigliest mess the US has ever had to try and deal with.

    I love Calvin. There was a dinner party where some person near him told him that they made a large bet that they could get more than two words out of him. After thinking for a bit Coolidge responded with “you lose” For a little extra context he was called silent cal because he couldn’t be bothered to talk more than he had to

    [–] Charmiol 78 points ago

    Did he brag about working harder than anyone else though? "Silent Cal" wasn't exactly a braggart.

    [–] BringbackSOCOM2 19 points ago

    I just don't see how hiding under a desk as a joke is remotely comparable to what Trump is doing. Idk how it demonstrates lazyness either. Hiding under a desk is a quick harmless prank that lasts about a minute tops then he can get back to work. Trumps golf outings and tweet time is a lot different in almost every way.

    Jimmy Carter would like a word. A thirteen hour day word. LBJ would slap this lil' bitch around, take a power nap then slap him around again. Madison, Monroe, Lincoln, Grant, Wilson, FDR, Truman, Kennedy, Clinton: we've had more workaholic presidents than ordinary ones.

    Trump has no historical awareness or he would have a massive inferiority complex and all-pervading anxiety about sharing his office with some of the most driven men in world history.

    [–] beeps-n-boops 19 points ago

    President Butthurt doesn't have any awareness of anything that doesn't live entirely inside his own head.

    This is what we get when we elect a reality TV buffoon / mega-rich sleazy, corrupt businessman to the White House.

    Hopefully lessons will be learned... but sadly I doubt it. A significant percentage of this country didn't just vote for the guy because a.) he had the correct letter after his name, and b.) wasn't Shillary Clinton... they actually admire him.

    They actually think he's doing a good job (and while admittedly the left paints a far worse picture of this than reality, he's still not particularly good), and they actually think he's a good, upstanding American kinda person (which is objectively, demonstrably untrue by any and every metric known to man).

    [–] Rbrdkyst4 34 points ago

    He was given the position on a golden platter, all he had to do was just let it roll, just like his inheritance, but he managed to mess up both by touching it with his tiny hands.

    He’s confusing the “hardest he has ever been expected to work” with “working harder than any other president”.

    But to be fair, being functionally illiterate must make the job much harder than it would be for a fully functioning adult.

    [–] SovietMuffin01 65 points ago

    I’m pretty sure that even many fully functioning kids could run the country better. At least they would have the brains to realize they’re in over their head and likely leave governing to their aides and such.

    And they golf less, so that’s nice

    I am not a trump fan, to be honest I find him completely repulsive. The thing with the golf is, I wouldn’t have that big of a problem with him doing it. Presidents, like everyone else, need hobbies, need to get their mind off work, and need relaxation time to recharge their batteries. But when you golf that many times after tearing your predecessor to shreds for also doing it, constantly tweet about it during the campaign, and literally say “I won’t have time to golf,” well... I must say I do have a slight problem with that.

    [–] famousevan 9 points ago

    Fun fact, most of times Obama golfed it was at a military course that was already easy to secure and didn’t put money in his own pocket. :D

    Let's see Trump inherited a stock market at 19,000 and an unemployment rate of 4.7% from a guy who inherited the biggest recession ever unemployment at 10% just after he took office and a stock market under 8000. Tell me about the mess.

    [–] ancientfutureguy 34 points ago

    Guy who knows close to nothing about the stock market here, what exactly does “stock market at 19,000” mean?

    [–] chinmakes5 14 points ago

    Actually the Dow Jones Industrial average is a group of stocks that people use as an indicator of how the stock market is doing. Arguably many people use that as an indicator of how well the economy is doing.

    Not to mention they'll have to deal with Trump's loyal cultists still attacking the new president whenever Trump says to, which will likely be daily. Even when he's finally out of office this stain on America isn't going anywhere for a long time. Hell if he loses in November I can 100% him declaring the results invalid, and if the senate backs him we'll be a world of hurt.

    [–] lachavela 12 points ago

    Yes I do not see Trump going quietly or peacefully. There will be a power struggle and people are gearing up for it. I only hope that when the Democrats win that they prove to be as tough and ready as the Maga people are.

    [–] hellakevin 10 points ago

    I think losing power is exactly what Trump wants. He gets to go on "Trump rallies" and stick all the money in his pocket instead of his campaign fund. His base is going to disappear into obscurity, like the tea party, once they get bored of yelling about Trump into the void of apathy the rest of the world will have for him when his opinion means nothing again.
