Thick as a Brick (2)



Donald Trump likes to portray himself as a genius, but more often that not the man comes across as frighteningly inarticulate - a stumbling, mumbling wreck - especially when he's not reading a prepared script from an autocue.

Memorial Day in America is a big public holiday which honours the men and women who have died serving in the US Armed Forces.

Joe Biden spent his laying a wreath in his home state of Delaware while Donald Trump found time to visit the golf course.

Here you go @JoeBiden the 30 second ads write themselves. It took me 10 minutes to make this. Trump golfs while Americans die. Let me know what you guys think.

Trump - Thick As A Brick (22/05/20)



I don't know what anyone else thinks about Donald Trump's musings on the meaning of 'per capita', but the thing that jumped into my head was this great track from Jethro Tull - 'Thick As A Brick'.
TRUMP: “When you say per capita, there’s many per capitas. It’s like per capita relative to what? But you can look at just about any category and we’re really at the top”
