A WORLD OF STUPID

There Is A World Of Stupid Being Reported On And It Is Getting Worse As Colleges And The Media Deliberately Dumb Down America
You ever browse around for news and see something so utterly stupid and unbelievable you think it just has to be satire, or a hoax, just to find out that it isn’t? Things that just make you shake your head in befuddlement before thinking “really, is this what it has come to?”
Well, this morning was one of those days for me, but it isn’t just one headline, one media outlet that that made me wonder what in the world were these people thinking, but a variety of different articles, about a wide range of topics, all of them so petty, unimportant, uninteresting, yet they give us a rounded picture that shows us there is a world of stupid out there and it is getting worse.
A WORLD OF STUPID
I am not assigning these examples any importance in order, just going through them as I came across them.
President Trump sent out a series of tweets on December 3, 2018, regarding his forer lawyer Michael Cohen, stating ““Michael Cohen asks judge for no Prison Time.” You mean he can do all of the TERRIBLE, unrelated to Trump, things having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc., and not serve a long prison term? He makes up stories to get a GREAT & ALREADY reduced deal for himself, and get…..” He then continued “….his wife and father-in-law (who has the money?) off Scott Free. He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence.”
Now, with the President’s fondness for tweeting, one would think his tweet, and his misspelling of “scot-free” would not be a “stop the presses” moment (although we should have expected it after the wall-to-wall coverage over the ‘covfefe’ tweet), unless you are the Washington Post that is. Wapo noticed that people then wanted to know “Who is Scott Free?” Yes, really. According to Merriam Webster, lookups for the term “scot-free” (showing that most knew exactly what he meant) increased by 3,100 percent on December 3.
President Trump’s “Scott Free” gaffe has mostly likely already generated more interest from Wapo than back in 2008 when Obama said“Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it.”
