Trumpian apologists are attempting to explain Our Donnie's abject ignorance by linking his comments to the Nullification Crisis of 1832. He was just too deep for us, intellectually.
That's nonsense. First, Our Donnie didn't even hint at the Nullification Crisis. I doubt that he is even aware of it. Why, you ask? Because he would have to read about it, and any written material about it has a lot of Big Werds, and is long. Too long for Our Donnie's attention span.
Our Donnie said: "People don’t realize, you know, the Civil War — if you think about it, why? People don’t ask that question, but why was there a Civil War? Why could that one not have been worked out?"
No one asks? Seriously? Our Donnie should take a walk through the Library of Congress and lookit all them things on duh shelfs. Them's 'books.' There's lotsa books about the Silver Ware. They gots stuff in dem about duh Silver Ware thing. Why and stuff like that.
I doubt that Our Donnie could tell Shelby Foote from his own foot, which is usually planted firmly in his own mouth.
Wait till he notices there are fifty stars on the flag. Then we'll get a Trumpian history and civics lesson.
"There are fifty stars on the flag. Most people have never noticed. People don't ask why, they don't ask that question. Think about it. And thirteen stripes. This is big. Huge. Thirteen. I think one of them is for Hawaii."
