Here's what I think is "dopey."

“You know when Abraham Lincoln made the Gettysburg Address speech, the great speech, you know he was ridiculed?” Trump told a rally in Montana on Thursday. “Fifty years after his death they said it may have been the greatest speech ever made in America. I have a feeling that’s going to happen with us. In different ways, that’s going to happen with us.”

Yes, David. President Trump does indeed say (and tweet) some very strange things. He's an enigma for sure. I certainly wouldnt claim to understand him. And I'm sure that those on the political Left are struggling too. I can understand them criticising Trump's weird and peculiar comments. But sometimes in their haste to attack they fall over themselves and , yes, make dopey comments. The result is false news or just plain poor journalism.
(We have a TV channel in Australia which is , in my view, very Left wing and is often taking the anti-Trump line).

Maybe there are indeed similarities with Lincoln. I believe that he received plenty of unfair comments by politically aligned journalists ... which often resulted in his standing amongst the community being increased. And I believe that he gave as good as he got.

Here is a comment that I posted today to the New York Times editorial titled "Confirmed: Brett Kavanaugh Can’t Be Trusted."

The Editorial Board made this subtitle commentary:

"A perfect nominee for a president with no clear relation to the truth."

In my opinion, there are times that the Editorial Board of the New York Times has "no clear relation to the truth."

But for the New York Times Editorial Board and the biased reporting and columnists' opinions (especially Krugman), We the People could have had Bernie Sanders as President. But the New York Times wanted Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic Party nominee and so it came to be (in no small part because of the role of superdelegates, instead of ordinary citizens, in deciding the Democratic Party nominee). But the Editorial Board made little or no objection to this undemocratic Democratic Party process.

My comment has already received 2 recommendations; mine was half of the total.
