Just trump Stupid, Not Out Of Context, Nor Sarcastic

It amazes me that the white house staff is of such low quality that they feel it makes sense to say that a sound clip of donnie saying something stupid was taken out of context.

We all heard it; there was no editing, nor were there any editorial addenda; it was just donnie being stupid.

How can that be out of context?

As for sarcasm, donnie sounded pretty earnest; sarcasm has its own tone of voice; earnest is not that tone; I think donnie was trying to flex his genius muscles.

He did after all point to his head as exhibit A of his qualification for proffering opinions.

So sarcasm it wasn't; nor was it genius; it was just trump stupid.

And if sarcasm were what had been intended, and if the earnest tone of voice didn't belie that assertion, it wouldn't have been sarcasm; it would have been irony.

But donnie is so stupid he wouldn't know the difference, if he had the brains to intend to use one of those rhetorical devices.

Which he doesn't.

The good thing, though, is that a lot of public health people and cleaning products manufacturers are all concerned that a lot of donnie's followers will take his orders and drink the Kool-Aid; or shoot it into their veins.

That's not a bad thing.
