Donald Trump doesn’t know a whole lot about history, or math, or grammar. But one thing he’s certainly well educated on is himself. And if all else fails, which it often does, he just reverts to talking about the one thing he’s a know-it-all on.
During a recent press conference, Donald was forced to fall back on his favorite subject when one reporter put him on the spot with a question about the impending anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising — a major operation during World War II in which the Polish underground resistance, led by the Home Army, moved to liberate Warsaw from the Germans — and the Trumpster pretty much didn’t know a damn thing about it.
So he did what he does best:
“Well, I have a lot of respect for Poland. And, as you know, the people of Poland like me, and I like them. And I’m going to be going to Poland fairly soon,” Donald responded, essentially proving that he knows jack shit about history or anything of the such and is only worried about what the Polish think of his hair and hands.
Completely beyond parody: Asked if he has a message for Poland on the anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, Trump says, “I have a lot of respect for Poland, and as you know the people of Poland like me. And I like them. And I’m going to be going to Poland fairly soon.” pic.twitter.com/jGd0xNJIH4

If your eyes are currently crossing at the stupidity of his response, don’t be alarmed. They’ll straighten up eventually, and you are certainly not alone. Twitter users had plenty to say about it as well:
If Trump was not POTUS, almost everyone functioning at a bare minimum level of cognition would laugh at him, ignore him or punch him in the face.

Side note: if I were in the press, I would ask him to comment on a different made up historical sounding event at every press conference for my own personal edification. And because he’s just going to lie so I may as well be amused.

Ask him if he thinks Snipe Hunting should be legal in all states.

He gives the most idiotic answers to cover the fact he has NO idea what he is talking about.
And yes. Why doesn’t the media embarrass him and ask legitimate questions that would force him to answer in a way that would prove he has knowledge on the subject? People like me. SMDH!

If only a requirement for the presidency had been knowledge of world history, we wouldn’t be in this mess.
