A collection of Trumpian craps

Jun 2013
1. Donald Trump's claim that "the (Earth's) Moon is a part of Mars" certainly tops his list of craps tweeted or uttered so far. It won't be surprising, however, that his latest crap would give way very soon to more laughable nonsense. Let us take a look at his amazing scientific discovery which should deserve him a "Special Nobel Prize" in Physics. :halo:

On 7 June 2019, Trump tweeted:

For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon - We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!

2. Who doesn't know water is wet? Let us hear what the "Laughing Stock of American Democracy" has said about the "wetness of water" from the "standpoint of water":

Donald Trump posted a video, on Sept. 18 ( 2018 ), praising first responders for their efforts after Hurricane Florence ravaged the Carolinas, but one of his remarks has left the internet saying, “WTF?” After referring to the hurricane as “a nasty one…a big one,” Trump went on to say that it was, “one of the wettest we have seen from the standpoint of water.” Um, what?

Well, Twitter is having a field day and many users have responded with comments of their own, even using Trump’s own syntax against him. “One of the most dishonest presidents we have ever seen from the standpoint of dishonesty…,” wrote one user, while another mocked the President’s intelligence. “A classroom of second graders could have written a more thoughtful and coherent statement,” they wrote....

3. Donald Trump has long been known for his open contempt for institutions like NATO and the EU and skepticism about the value of longtime US alliances. The following is a good example of the craps he has accused his so-called US allies:

"We love the countries of the European Union. But the European Union, of course, was set up to take advantage of the United States," Trump said at a rally in North Dakota on Wednesday ( 27 June 2018 ). "And you know what, we can't let that happen."

P.S. Readers are welcome to give more examples of Trump's craps.

What is funnier is that he put foreign governments in quotes
like "foreign governments", there is no such thing I suppose.

Well said. There is no reason for him to put foreign governments in quotes. It shows that he does not know how to use the quotes correctly.

You are very observant. You seem to be the only person to spot the error as everybody is focusing on the "Prince of Whales" spelling gaffe.

It is not surprising to find grammatical or spelling errors in his tweets and speeches. He was found to speak at level of 8-year-old.

An analysis of the President's first 30,000 words uttered in office found Mr Trump speaks at a third- to seventh-grade reading level – lower than any other President since 1929. Mr Trump’s vocabulary and grammatical structure is “significantly more simple, and less diverse” than any President since Herbert Hoover, the analysis found.

More info on the "expertise" of Trump's NASA appointee:

Trump’s next NASA administrator is a Republican congressman with no background in science

Excerpts: (headline)
Trump’s next NASA administrator is a Republican congressman with no background in science

Bridenstine, 42, brings some odd qualifications to the job, and some controversy.

Typically, NASA administrators are chosen from within NASA’s ranks, come up through the military, or have a background in science. Bridenstine has none of that. His qualifications: He’s former Navy pilot who once ran the Air and Space Museum in Tulsa. He also sits on the House Committee that oversees NASA. The third-term representative is now the first member of Congress to hold the administrator job.

Even members of Bridenstine’s own party have voiced concerns over what putting a politician in charge could mean for the future of the agency.

Shocker: Moon to Mars was announced before Trump made his gaffe with his poorly constructed sentence. He is not crazy yet, just needs an English teacher to proofread his tweets.

Moon to Mars Overview
Working with U.S. companies and international partners, NASA will push the boundaries of human exploration forward to the Moon and on to Mars. NASA is working to establish a permanent human presence on the Moon within the next decade to uncover new scientific discoveries and lay the foundation for private companies to build a lunar economy.

Right now, NASA is taking steps to begin this next era of exploration.

It all starts with delivery services to the lunar surface from U.S. companies for scientific instruments and technology demonstrations as well as a spaceship, called the Gateway, in orbit around the Moon that will support human missions to the surface with reusable lander elements for decades to come. The Gateway will, for the first time, give NASA and its partners access to more of the lunar surface than ever before, supporting both human and robotic missions. The agency’s powerful Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft will be the backbone to build the Gateway and transport astronauts to and from Earth.

Looking to Mars

NASA also continues to work with companies to address the challenges of living in space, such as using existing resources, options for disposing of trash, and more. Missions to the Moon are about 1,000 times farther from Earth than missions to the International Space Station, requiring systems that can reliably operate far from home, support the needs of human life, and still be light enough to launch. These technologies will become increasingly more important for the 34 million mile trip to Mars.

Exploration of the Moon and Mars is intertwined. The Moon provides an opportunity to test new tools, instruments and equipment that could be used on Mars, including human habitats, life support systems, and technologies and practices that could help us build self-sustaining outposts away from Earth. Living on the Gateway for months at a time will also allow researchers to understand how the human body responds in a true deep space environment before committing to the years-long journey to Mars.
