If I said Trump is dumb, that wouldn’t be news. But, if I was to say he is dumber than Sarah Palin – well that’s a different story.
Sarah Palin posted a meme to her Facebook page, which included the fake Gandhi quote, to support Trump. We know facts and checking them are a concept foreign to her, so that’s not totally surprising. Trump totally ran with it, though, and now he looks even dumber than her which is something you really have to try hard to do.
Here is an image from Sarah’s Facebook of the original post.
There are some things that people should just know not do, once they reach a certain age and level of understanding. People should know not to use a hair dryer while sitting in a bathtub full of water, just like they should know not to repeat something Sarah Palin said without fact-checking it first. Trump seems to have not gotten the memo on that as you can see below. Do you think he will blame this one on a “staffer” like Republicans always do when they put something stupid on the internet?
Here is the tweet of the same quote sent by Trump. Note the date is after Sarah sent hers:
You can see the dates shown on the posts as well, which proves he actually got it from Sarah. Imagine hypothetically if he was president. Would he be taking input on how to do other aspects of the job from Sarah as well, since he takes campaign strategies from her now? God, that’s a terror of a thought. Isn’t it?
Needless to say, the internet did not give him a pass on this one.

Some clueless Trump supporter tried to defend him. It didn’t go well for her.

I can’t wait to hear his explanation for this one. Maybe he will just say “It’s an interesting quote, even though I totally knew it was fake.” Whatever he says, it’ll at least be better than explaining that he knew he quoted Mussolini.
