Trump’s leadership is an exaggeration in dysfunction, and scary as hell.
The MAGA’s voice and posturing have obscured the lines between fact, information and elevated ignorance to stupid and currently border on lunacy.
Ignorance Definition: Lacking knowledge about something or deliberate disregard for information regarding facts or events. (I’m calling stupid on this one).
Stupid definition: “slow of mind; obtuse, given to unintelligent decisions or acts; acting in an unintelligent or careless manner.” Example: Trump Rally.
We are all ignorant at times about issues, but choosing to remain that way is stupid.
Given today’s access to information, stupid is a treatable condition but comes with a caveat – responsibility. Taking responsibility for seeking reliable sources for information is time-consuming. Accepting Twitter or Facebook blathering is unreliable. Many of the tweets are old information or from sources that are questionable.
Unfortunately, some of our elected officials have saturated the stratosphere with examples of ignorance and stupidity and advanced to lunacy.
If a visual is required check out Louie Gohmert.
Lunacy: “Unsoundness of mind sufficient to incapacitate one for civil transactions: a former legal term.”
It’s time to update legal terms to include lunacy.
