George Conway's on a tear on Twitter eviscerating Trump

























George Conway @gtconway3d

A thread for those who think @realDonaldTrump could find Ukraine on a marked map:

.@realDonaldTrump thinks Belgium is a city, albeit a pretty one.

https://www.politico.eu/article/donald-trump-belgium-is-a-beautiful-city-hellhole-us-presidential-election-2016-america/
Donald Trump: ‘Belgium is a beautiful city’
At least it’s better than being called a ‘hellhole.’


.@realDonaldTrump seems to think Paris is in Germany. (It kind of was for a few years in the 1940s, I guess.)

Donald J. Trump ✔@realDonaldTrump

Man shot inside Paris police station. Just announced that terror threat is at highest level. Germany is a total mess-big crime. GET SMART!


.@realDonaldTrump thinks there are countries on this planet called “Nipple” and “Button.” (Do NOT, under any circumstances, ask him to point them out. PLEASE.)

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/08/13/trump-world-knowledge-diplomatic-774801
Trump’s diplomatic learning curve: Time zones, ‘Nambia’ and ‘Nipple’


Also, @realDonaldTrump didn’t understand that when it’s the afternoon in Washington, it’s the middle of the night in Tokyo.

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/08/13/trump-world-knowledge-diplomatic-774801
The president has often perplexed foreign officials and his own aides as he learns how to deal with the world beyond America's borders.


In a meeting with leaders from the *Baltic* states, @realDonaldTrump thought he was talking to people from the *Balkans*. (No, seriously. This created quite a stir in diplomatic circles.)

https://www.baltictimes.com/trump_confused_baltics_with_balkans_at_a_meeting_with_baltic_presidents_in_april_-_newspaper/


I have to say that really is my personal favorite. @realDonaldTrump is there trashing the presidents of Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia for the breakup Yugoslavia, and they’re like, WTF. And then it dons on them—Balkans, Baltics ... buffoon.

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2018/11/baltics-vs-balkans-trump-reportedly-gets-the-two-confused-at-meeting-with-leaders-of-estonia-latvia-and-lithuania.html
Is Anyone Surprised Trump Doesn’t Know the Difference Between Baltic States and the Balkans?
He reportedly mixed the two during a White House meeting with Dalia Grybauskaite of Lithuania, Kersti Kaljulaid of Estonia and Raimonds Vejonis of Latvia.


Don’t forget that beautiful border wall @realDonaldTrump is building between Colorado and Mexico.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/10/24/trump-colorado-wall-mocked-twitter/
‘Is Wyoming invading?’: Trump mocked for saying he’s building a wall in Colorado
“Well this is awkward ...” tweeted Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D). “Good thing Colorado now offers free full day kindergarten so our kids can learn basic geography.”


Oh, wait. A small correction. @realDonaldTrump thought Nipple and Button were in India, not separate countries. My bad—we all make mistakes. Sorry.

https://www.indiatoday.in/trending-news/story/donald-trump-nepal-bhutan-button-nipple-1449172-2019-02-06
Donald Trump thought Nepal and Bhutan were in India. Called them Nipple and Button
We're not kidding. Here's what the President of the United States once said about two independent South Asian countries -- both neighbours of India. (And what Twitterati said about that.)


.@realDonaldTrump once bombed Syria but thought he bombed Iraq.

https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2017/04/12/trump-xi-syria-iraq-misspeak-fox-intv-orig-vstop-aa.cnn
Trump misspeaks, says US bombed Iraq - CNN Video
During an interview on Fox Business Network, President Trump mistakenly said the US launched 59 missiles, "Heading to Iraq."


.@realDonaldTrump once got a call from the president of *South* Korea, but then told hundreds of journalists that he’d gotten a call from the leader of *North* Korea.

https://qz.com/1222154/trump-said-he-talked-to-north-korea-but-it-was-actually-south-korean-president-moon-jae-in/
Trump said he spoke with North Korea, but it was actually South Korea


“After I had won, everybody was calling me from all over the world. I never knew we had so many countries.”
— @realDonaldTrump


https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/world/trump-after-i-had-won-everybody-was-calling-me-from-all-over-the-world-i-never-knew-we-had-so-many-countries/2017/11/06/0d88c118-c2e9-11e7-9922-4151f5ca6168_video.html
At a Nov. 6 state banquet with Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, President Trump said he did not know he wasn't supposed to take visits from world leaders until he was in office.


.@realDonaldTrump once told the prime minister of India, “It’s not like you’ve got China on your border.” (India has a 2,520-mile border with China.)

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/its-not-like-youve-got-china-on-your-border-trump-geography-error-stunned-indian-prime-minister
'It’s not like you’ve got China on your border': Trump geography error stunned Indian prime minister
President Trump’s shaky grasp of geography almost derailed America’s relations with India, according to a new account of his initial meeting with the country’s prime minister.


.@realDonaldTrump has to be told in 2018 that Ireland isn’t part of the U.K.

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/uk/embarrassing-trump-told-ireland-is-not-part-of-uk-1.3563769
‘Embarrassing’ Trump told Ireland is not part of UK
Politicians in UK and US respond with outrage to president’s undiplomatic comments


... yet made the mistake again in 2019.

https://www.independent.ie/world-news/europe/us-president-donald-trump-calls-ireland-part-of-uk-as-he-boasts-about-his-british-properties-38437690.html
US PRESIDENT Donald Trump confused Ireland and the UK while answering questions about a post-Brexit trade deal and listed Doonbeg among his properties in Britain.


And just a few days ago, @realDonaldTrump earned global mockery when met with the president of *Iraqi* Kurdistan but thought he was taking to someone from *Syria*.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2020/01/23/trump-appears-confuse-kurds-syria-iraq-meeting-with-president-iraqi-kurdistan/
Analysis | Trump appears to confuse the Kurds of Syria and Iraq in a meeting with the president of...

12. Idiocy on full display for the whole world to see

What makes it worse is that with a good staff member he could be quickly briefed before each encounter or public comment about who and where. This would certainly be advisable, but we found out from Bloomberg that tRump claimed to be the smartest person and so (in tRump logic) did not need advice from anyone about anything.

And if so many still love him precisely for these “anti elite” comments.

Peggy Noonan once wrote that this is the revenge of the high school students who sat at the back of the class hating the ones who actually wanted to learn.

20. carpet-bomb twitter with all the stupidities of trumPutin ...

I hope this is picked up by other twitter users. Trump should experience a carpet-bombing of his ignorance in every field of education. He has not limited himself to geo-political commentary over the years, although that's still a target rich environment even after George Conway's series shown in the OP.

Trump has revealed his ignorance, stupidity and unwillingness to learn since before being installed in office. Collecting the drips and tweets, as above, makes his unfitness even more glaringly obvious.

Include the tweet, with photo. I am sure George would be all in.

Brief, and points out his EPIC stupidity. Even his deplorable knuckledraggers would get it.

... an INABILITY to learn?? Perhaps both. Maybe being unable to learn has lead to him not caring to learn. But in any case, this is the narcissistic buffoon that too many Americans thought was a genius at... who the fuck knows.

My favorite Trump dumb ass remark was something like, "Poland is a country."
He said that late last summer or in the early fall and I kept repeating for a few

Since Trump doesn't want to debate and like reality TV, maybe there could challenge matches of "Are you smarter than at 5th grader" instead.
