Before the speech has been delivered — which is a neat trick.
If that headline doesn’t make you laugh, you haven’t been paying attention. The headline could just as well read: “Trump to Awkwardly Read Off TelePrompTer Set of Positions He Does Not Care About Because They Are Not About How Great He Supposedly Is.” Bloomberg reports:
Donald Trump will propose a temporary moratorium on new financial regulations in an economic speech Monday in Detroit in an effort to draw a stark contrast with the domestic policies of Hillary Clinton, who he says “punishes” the American economy.
Of course, I don’t believe for one moment that he would do any of these things. I don’t think he understands what they are. And if he gets elected, his establishment buddies will tell him what’s what, and he will fall in line — because he doesn’t care about any of this stuff.
Actually, I kinda agree. The problem about Trump isn’t that he lies, or that he has unpopular views, or that his ideas will hurt America.
The problem with Trump is that he might not even believe or understand much of what he’s talking about. He’s not stupid. I think he has just risen to his level of incompetence. I don’t know that he’s all that interested in the nuts and bolts of governing.
But it’s a major, major policy speech. Best evah.
