Why Does Trump Always Seem to Say Silly Things?

Updated on April 24, 2020

Politics used to be a great interest of mine, now I prefer analyzing the roots rather than the symptoms.


I'm not about to sit here and defend Trump, because I'm not a big fan of the man as a person. I support him as my POTUS, as any American should support their President to the degree of loyalty to the nation in which we live, but his methods are unarguably off-putting most of the time. My biggest issue I have right now, and even in the past, is the media's incessant need to corner the President with every slight slip up they make.

Trump deserves a fair and impartial interpretation of his words, just as anyone does, and where our media cannot offer that I am willing to step in.

I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute, and is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside, or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets inside the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that.

— Donald J Trump, POTUS

Say What?!

At first read, and hearing this, you can really feel the confusion starting to well. The confusion really starts to take root when fair and impartial interpretation from our information sources goes out the window in favor of smearing the President. Make no mistake, this is what many sources are doing, they are simply smearing the President because the President often wings it in his speeches and leaves his meaning up to interpretation.

Breaking this down myself, however, without depending on prejudice and biased news sources, I can see Trump is taking a metaphorical/figurative approach to the view of treating the virus. So here is how Trump was thinking here, simplified:

  • Cleaning materials can kill the virus quickly
  • Let's get imaginative here for a second
  • Can an injection act like a disinfectant?
  • The virus enters the lungs, so could we inject the lungs?
  • Treating the lungs directly could be a solution

Fair and impartial interpretation doesn't make this seem so stupid, now does it? Stop being so hateful, and letting hate dictate your immediate reaction. If the news media said Trump told everyone not to jump off a cliff, hatred would soon see suicide rates rising swiftly.

On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate Trump as President?

Stop Spreading Disinformation

I know that this can be a big, unfathomable request for many, and even further far outside the capability of many Americans and dissidents of the world at large, but you need to stop and think for yourself and stop letting resentment drive your thoughts. The powers that be love nothing more than sowing discord among its people, and when you jump on every ignorant bandwagon then you are doing the nation, and world as a whole a disservice. Take the time, if you are able, to approach everything you hear with a fair and impartial mind.

All this is to say, unless you like harassing old men who are seemingly losing their edge to senility. Personally, I like to pick harder targets, lest I be held on the same level as dotards.
