President Trump Illiterate?


For John, BLUFReading is important.  Not everyone enjoys it.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




It is the web site Boing Boing.  The article is authored by Ms Xeni Jardin, and was posted on Friday, 7 April.

Here is the lede plus one:

The President is “a moron,” says former SNL cast member Taran Killam.  That may be true.  But can he read?

When Donald Trump hosted Saturday Night Live in 2015, none of the regulars were happy about it, according to an interview with Killam in Brooklyn Magazine.

Then the article goes on to quote Mr Taran Killam, from an interview with Brooklyn Magazine
"What you see is what you get with him, really," he said.  "I mean, there was no big reveal.  He struggled to read at the table read, which did not give many of us great confidence.  Didn’t get the jokes, really.  He’s just a man who seems to be powered by bluster."
In posting this story at his own Blog Sight, Law Professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds quips:

If it’s true, then Hillary and all the brightest minds of the left were beaten like drums by a man who can’t even read!
Well, "beaten like a drum" may be a little over the top, but the basic fact remains, per this SNL cast member, a functional illiterate beat Ms Hillary Clinton.

To quote President Donald John Trump, "It is sad, very sad."

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

  On the other hand, we were told the same thing about President George W Bush, who read a number of books each year, and was even in a book reading contest with his advisor, Karl Rove.
