Trump and Trumper (yes, think of “Dumb and Dumber”)

One observation before getting to the subject. One need only pause and permit Donald Trump to speak, which he can not control, apparently, to be presented with something equivalent to a shot to his own foot from a gun in his own hand. I thought I was at a loss for words, but I was wrong.

I sought and found Trump’s comments and opinion on the “problem” of scarcity of Black, Oscar nominees and found the following:

“I thought it was an amazing interview [with Stacey Dash] actually. I never even thought of it from that standpoint.”
Trump was referring to comments made by Stacey Dash, a black actress and Fox News commentator.
“Either we want to have segregation or integration. If we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where you’re only awarded if you’re black,” Dash said on “Fox and Friends.”
Trump moved on, saying, “It would certainly be nice if everybody could be represented.”

Well, that’s “nice” but is devoid of principle.

I’m left to wonder, does he know the meaning of “segregation”? Further, does he know the meaning of “integration” and, particularly, forced integration?

He had the opportunity to demonstrate his understanding of the content and truth-value of what he claimed to see prior to being asked about the subject.

I’m thinking: “Worse and Worser.” The thing about this and those in the title is that he is the egomaniac to the left and rightpun thoroughly intended–of the word “and” in each of the phrases, where the original “Dumb and Dumber” referred to two individuals.
