The latest talking media point, in addition to the notion that the President is mentally unstable, is that Trump is probably also illiterate. The point was raised, predictably, on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, with Joe Scarborough declaring “[Trump] doesn’t read. He didn’t read. […] [T]here has been a question of whether this guy can read, whether he does read.”
Scarborough noted that Wolff’s book contends that “senior staffers at the White House have low opinions of the President’s intelligence.” “There are many creative words. Quote: ‘Trump didn’t read. He didn’t really even skim. If it was print, it might as well not exist. Some believed that for all practical purposes, he was no more than semi-literate.'” Scarborough stated as he read from the text. “For Steve Mnuchin and Reince Priebus, he was an “idiot.” For Gary Cohn, he was “dumb as” blank [on screen: “s**t”]. For H.R. McMaster he was a ‘dope.’” the host continued.
Continuing to read from the text Scarborough noted that an email from Cohn shared between a dozen or more staffers stated “It’s worse than you can imagine. An idiot surrounded by clowns. Trump won’t read anything — not one-page memos, not the brief policy papers; nothing. He gets up halfway through meetings with world leaders because he is bored.” The White House has responded to the claims, saying that they are 100% false, and that Cohn did not write the email.
Scarborough scoffed that “of course they would say” that, and then launched into a monologue about Trump being illiterate. Joe Scarborough’s guest, Bloomberg Businessweek editor Megan Murphy, then essentially argued that it doesn’t matter whether any of claims in the book, including the one about Trump being illiterate, are true or not. “The main point is the same, which is that these are the kind of things you are hearing, regardless of whether every single allegation, every single piece of information, is, in fact, true, was said, is an accurate quote… this is incredibly serious stuff.” Murphy said. Indeed, this is the line the media is taking – that the claims in the book are likely totally false, but they should be reported as if they are true anyway. But then what else would America expect from the fake media?
