Donald Trump, the man of the people who understands the working class, argued for voter IDs by saying everyone needs to show their IDs at grocery stores.
Now, since he was speaking at one of his rallies in Florida, every cashier in the Tampa region is going to have to deal with IDs being shoved in their faces by QAnon idiots each time they purchase toilet paper.
Of course, you don’t need an ID to purchase groceries. What’s obvious here is that Trump has never shopped for his own food in his entire life. As we have all come to learn, not knowing about something doesn’t stop Donald Trump from explaining how it works.
The nuclear triad, what NATO does, the three branches of government, the president of Puerto Rico, islands are surrounded by water, who fought in the War of 1812 or what year it was, the difference between HPV and HIV, invisible airplanes, the alphabet…there’s a lot of stuff Trump does not know. Now we can add grocery shopping. But, if you need someone to explain money laundering, how to steal from a charity or bust into a dressing room full of teenage girls, Trump’s your expert.
White House Spokesgoon Sarah Huckabee Sanders condescendingly explained to the press that he was talking about beer, liquor, and wine at grocery stores, and if they weren’t asking for IDs, then there was a problem with that store.
No. The problem is that you believe we’re stupid enough to buy that defense. The other problem is that we’re becoming used to this new stupidity and it’s becoming the new normal.
George H. W. Bush was once mocked and derided for being amazed at scanners in grocery stores. It perpetuated the image he was out of touch and didn’t understand the real world. That image aided in his defeat to Bill Clinton. But, President Bush wasn’t stupid. He was just out of touch.
Donald Trump is stupid. He probably still believes you need an ID at a grocery store (though he left that line out of his rally speech). I don’t know if Trump employs anyone who will correct him. The only person in the White House who can’t get fired is Ivanka, and we know she’s not going grocery shopping.
But, maybe Trump has done some of his own shopping. Because, that brain he bought was from someone named Abby Normal.
