Donald Trump, Andrew Jackson… and Abraham Lincoln

Hot-Headed Bob Newhart

Ex-Army Libertarian Nationalist

Many years ago, in an episode of Bob Newhart's Vermont show, several of the townspeople kept referring to Bob as "hot-headed." This was extraordinarily ludicrous, as it's hard to imagine a person less hot-headed than Bob Newhart in any of his incarnations. But that was for comedy and it was all in fun.

Right now we're going through a similar phenomenon with much less benign intentions and results. Trump is constantly being accused of things in much the same way. At the top of the list is the notion that he's "stupid." Leaving aside the impossibility of a stupid person accumulating that much money, you have to remember that for several decades now, the Democrats/liberals have called all Republicans stupid, especially Republican Presidents and Presidential candidates. It's just what they do. The last one they couldn't bring themselves to call stupid was Nixon, because he was so obviously intelligent that they had to settle for "unhip" instead. Meanwhile, of course, they've praised such mediocrities as Hillary, Biden, and Obama for their magnificent intellects.

Another accusation is "thin-skinned," which is absurd. He'd be a basket case by now if he were thin-skinned. The last time we had a President so hated and reviled by such a large group of people we had a civil war over it. And, frankly, Lincoln had a lot of it coming….

Intelligence, at least in the IQ sense, does not necessarily equate with rationality, common sense and clarity of thought.

Overeducated diversity fanatics, smugly (and falsely) believe that multiple liberal arts degrees confer an intellectual superiority that allows them to call others who disagree with them "stupid". They quickly default to labeling and name calling in order to cover up their inability to support their bankrupt ideology.
