Lord Dampnut praises his own invidious motivations and “incompetent malevolence” with a tweet… SAD!


c4uxdvyueae7xdj_1_1You read that correctly: The President of the United States was tweeting approvingly an article describing his motivations as “invidious” and describing his actions using the phrase “incompetent malevolence.”

Orange Gazbag’s apparently so stupid that he’s apparently incapable of reading in context, and praises criticism of his White House’s incompetence and dysfunction on the ruling against the “Muslim ban”… based on a Morning Joe sound bite.

His Twitter spew will have not only a deleterious effect on legal proceedings but as his cultural illiteracy (as “President Donald”) with the Japanese PM shows, he’s as dim as his followers who trashed PBO for “bowing too low”, etc.


Think about it this way: If the Trump White House is so incompetent that it is citing my work by accident, how on earth can we trust it to handle North Korea?


This is not how the White House is supposed to work. Whole apparatuses are supposed to be there to protect the President from sending out unvetted executive orders, tweeting attacks on federal judges that hurt the government’s chances of prevailing in court, and yes, even from tweeting articles he hasn’t read and that don’t say what he thinks they say….

It is a portrait in inconsequential and comical miniature of the incompetence and dysfunction we’ve been seeing since day one of the Trump Administration. It’s the incompetence I wrote about the day after the executive order itself emerged with virtually no vetting.

Benjamin Wittes is editor in chief of Lawfare and a Senior Fellow in Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution. He is the author of several books and is co-chair of the Hoover Institution’s Working Group on National Security, Technology, and Law.

Please stop “fact checking” Trump’s madness as if it were a verifiable truth claim. That just inadvertently legitimizes it.


And why did not one MSM stenographer ask Lord Dampnut with Abe present why scooping up undocumented persons seemed much like EO 9066 in 1942.

  1. bigfatmike says:

    The only reasonable conclusion is that the president agrees his motivations were invidious and his actions best described as incompetent malevolence.

    I think we have to give serious consideration to the possibility that this president is much more aware and in control than we realized.

    Apparently his tweet was not a mistake – he was bragging! – or not.

    if the theory that Trump reads at a 4th grade level is correct, these words are not in his vocabulary – he may have just assumed they were complimentary.

  3. Now, now.

    It’s as Steve Martin used to say, “Some people have a way with the English language and some people . . . have not way.”

  4. We are seeing the real world implications of Stanley Milgram’s studies of compliance with authoritarian orders and Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment. It is amazing, even to the most critical scientific observer, how easy it is to bring out the darkest side of otherwise normal people.

  5. Chuck,

    To use the mythological parlance, one must recognize has a demon in order to put it on a leash. One can debate the absolute nature of Socrates assertion that the unexamined life is not worth living, but it is hard to deny that collectively a lack of that principle in action one of humanities least attractive traits and a root cause of much suffering.

  6. For those who have not figured it out yet, “Lord Dampnut” is an anagram made from “Donald Trump.”

    Another anagram is “Damn Turd Pol.”

    As you were. Carry on.
