Does there seem to be more stupidity on display now than ever before? It isn’t you. I’m hearing that from practically everyone I know. And I think I’ve figured out why.

Our culture used to be ashamed of displaying our stupidity. We sort of kept it on the down low. Not anymore. Now we’re proud of it. Revel in it. We parade our stupidity around like it’s the best thing since Jenny McCarthy’s anti-vaccine crusade.

Did you happen to catch Hillary Clinton’s sensationally stupid remarks from India last week? She characterized the American heartland – Trump voters – as being unhappy that blacks have rights and women have jobs. She also suggested that white women who voted for Trump were pressured by their husbands, sons and bosses.

Can you imagine anyone seriously suggesting anything so stupid in this day and age? Hard to believe that Clinton was almost President. And that’s not even the half of it. How can anyone possibly think that it benefits her and her party to spew such nonsense?

Meanwhile, the dems are running as far away from Clinton as they can get. If they could have sat her in that Tesla that Elon Musk shot into space a few weeks ago I’m sure they would have.

It’s worth pointing out that my wife wears the political pants in our family. No kidding.

In case you missed some of the stupendously stupid comments by the progressive media on President Trump’s appointment of CNBC’s Larry Kudlow as his top economic advisor, Paul Krugman, chief economic elitist at the NY Times tweeted this:

Always a class act, William Shatner, aka Captain Kirk of Star Trek’s USS Enterprise, replied, “How does a Nobel Laureate tweet such stupidity? Can I ask for a recount?” Afraid not Bill. Afraid not.

Meanwhile Ezra Klein, editor-at-large of Vox and Washington Post alum tweeted this:

Just so you know, Kudlow is an economist who worked with the great Art Laffer on President Reagan’s economic policy. He also worked on President Trump’s tax plan. He doesn’t just play an economist on TV. He is an economist.

And these people wonder why the nation swung the other way in 2016. How stupid can you get?

    It’s no longer about truth or lie, intelligence or stupidity. It’s all about manipulating and emotionally toying with your audience.

    That’s the new political shtick and everybody’s doing it.

      Not everybody!

    Another stupid thing is wanting us to put RED light bulbs outside our homes to show everybody its a GUN FREE zone. Come on crooks break in my house.

    How do we know that Trump did well in school? Because we don’t hear about it. Never was it to be allowed to be seen any kind of transcript of Obama’s grades. He was considered “smart” because he could read a teleprompter well…that’s it. When he spoke “off script” it was nonsense and full of uh’s. He never built anything. Hillary is certifiable. Stupid and unlikeable. The media just labels people stupid and smart….and that is the determiner. I’ve always said that Krugman believes only in things that are fantasy and hypothetical. He wants the world to be a certain way and fits his writing to make it that way…always leaving out human dynamics and innovation…which he believes comes from a collective and not just some “guy”. Crazy government types who are “elites” hate the citizens. In the end, they[we] have rejected that nonsense that the out of touch ruling class has been heaping on us.

    All those Trump voters having….you know…..lights and electricity and the internet and stuff and….you know….. wanting to keep more of the money they earn to spend on stupid stuff that puts Americans and others to work, owning homes, begin responsible and paying their bills, going to work and creating for the greater good. Now they’re all wanting the government out of their lives and getting back to the sensible norms that got us this far in the first place. Yeah and that stupid decoration of independence, declaration, whatever it is…..that is SO 241.3 years ago. It should be called the Declaration of Interdependence…..IT TAKES A VILLAGE AFTER ALL……..Go home Hillary, you’re drunk on expensive taxpayer wine and your own self-aggrandizement..That’s an ID ten T if I ever saw one.
