That interview where Trump refuses to give an honest answer and ends up siting down on his desk and pretending to be busy to get the reporter to leave him alone looks like something out of The Office. Even the way it`s shot, with the camera awkwardly lingering on Trump as he fumbles whit his papers is spot on.

*Trump is the all-time record-holder of the Dunning-Kruger effect, the phenomenon in which the incompetent person is too incompetent to understand his own incompetence. We now have this perverse situation in which the vast analytic powers of the entire world are being spent trying to understand a guy whose thoughts are often just six fireflies beeping randomly in a jar.*

"A horrible sign that the disease is spreading", hearing this in 2020 is really discomforting

I used to be a transcriptionist. Not the medical kind, the kind that types up what people are saying during speeches, videos, stuff like that. I had a client that wanted recordings of some of Trump's speeches ... Worst day of my entire time working at that company ...

People keep talking about how the younger generation lacks respect but from what I can see there’s a lot of grown men - well into their 50s and 70s - who act like petty teenagers and babies. They need to take off the tie & put on a bib.

Trump makes Jared the illiterate 19 year-old look like a literary genius.

This segment is still as relevant today as it was when it first aired in Nov of 2017. It is now Feb, 2020!

(6:15) I'd counter Trump's whataboutism with whataboutism itself.

Trump: I'm not the only one who has criticized the press. What about Hillary Clinton, What about Barrack Obama, What about Bernie Sanders?
Me: By that rule, if I commit a theft, you cannot question me because there are other thieves out there on the streets. Is that correct?

That clip of Trump refusing to answer the question and going to sit at his desk and pretend to do paper work feels like it was taken straight out of The Office.

"He's had so many terrible moments this year, you probably forgot about many of them." ... ... Yeah....
Sh!z... 2 1/2 years later I've forgotten ALL the terrible Trump moments of 2017. He's leveled up on terrible so many times that it's fracking painful at this point and my greatest fear is now that he could get re-elected.

Watching this June 1st 2020... it’s crazy how back then the media didn’t take this seriously, Trump got elected, and now that people are dying, race tensions are at an all time high, and we’re still in the middle of a global pandemic, he’s hidden in a bunker instead of talking to his people. He was never in it for America, he just wanted to be king

“....We are familiar enough with his speech patterns that we get the basic gist...” Don’t we say the exact same thing about most toddlers??

John: Trump is using "whataboutism".
Trump supporters : well whatabout when liberals use whataboutism?!?
Me: If you are stupid enough to say that, there is no hope for you.
