Over the weekend, Donald Trump gave a speech to young conservatives. Consider this short excerpt:

"We'll have an economy based on wind. I never understood wind. You know, I know windmills very much. I've studied it better than anybody. I know it's very expensive. They're made in China and Germany mostly -- very few made here, almost none. But they're manufactured tremendous -- if you're into this -- tremendous fumes. Gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint -- fumes are spewing into the air. Right? Spewing. Whether it's in China, Germany, it's going into the air. It's our air, their air, everything -- right? So they make these things and then they put them up."

What the fuck is he talking about?

This is why I can never understand why people support him. If you listen to what he's saying, he sounds like a blithering idiot.

I am reminded of Being There, a brilliant novel by Jerzy Kosinski turned into a terrific movie written by Kosinski and starring Peter Sellers and Shirley MacLaine. A simple-minded gardener is mistakenly thought to be a profound genius and people want him to run for President. And now we have life imitating art.

But keep speaking Donald. Keep reminding people you're a confused, babbling fool. You're talking yourself into losing your reelection bid. So keep it up.
