Most Americans are well aware that Donald Trump doesn’t know anything about the U.S. Constitution, and doesn’t care about the values that America was founded on. That has never been more evident than in the disgraceful way he has been “leading” our country over the past year, and it has only gotten worse over time.
What is shocking, however, is Trump’s complete lack of respect for the Constitution, which was highlighted in a major revelation of journalist Michael Wolff’s new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.” Among several other disturbing details that have been revealed by insiders, one shocking instance that was reported happened when aide Sam Nunberg tried explain the Constitution to Trump — and the failing president literally rolled his eyes.
The Daily Intelligencer published an excerpt from Wolff’s book that puts Trump’s ignorance on blast perfectly, and should make every Trump voter deeply ashamed. Wolff wrote:
Everybody in his rich-guy social circle knew about his wide-ranging ignorance. Early in the campaign, Sam Nunberg was sent to explain the Constitution to the candidate.”
Nunberg had told Wolff:
I got as far as the Fourth Amendment, before his finger is pulling down on his lip and his eyes are rolling back in his head.”
If that doesn’t make you seriously p*ssed off, I don’t know what will. This country is currently being led by a monster who doesn’t even care about its history and most important document.
The claims in Wolff’s book have been backed up by Tony Schwartz, who was the ghostwriter of Trump’s book, The Art of the Deal. Schwartz has previously said that Trump has “the attention span of a kindergartner.” Schwartz said:
It’s impossible to keep him focused on any topic, other than his own self-aggrandizement, for more than a few minutes.”
While Schwartz’s statements may be true, there are no excuses strong enough to justify a President rolling his eyes at the Constitution. Trump’s behavior is repulsive and disgraceful, and this proves it more than anything.
