Donald Trump being totally owned by his top trade rep is just an astonishing watch
Not the first time our jaws have dropped watching Donald Trump but it’s been a while since our jaw dropped quite as low as this.
It’s Donald Trump on live TV being flatly contradicted – totally owned, you might say – by his top trade representative as he attempts to downplay the importance of a ‘memorandum of understanding’.
Like so many things Trump, it’s astonishing, hilarious, and mildly terrifying.

This is what happens when you have someone in power that not only doesn't have any understanding of humanity, but of anything in general, and is ignorant enough to persist in the obvious.

this so embarrassing it made me cringe, i swear trump genuinely has no idea what hes saying half the time, just bursts out a whole lot of mumbo jumbo that doesn't mean anything and he only pulls it off because he says it with confidence.
i dont even know what to say anymore 😂 https://t.co/B7RYrXnekQ

Trump has no idea what he's talking about and is now arguing with an expert. I like that term better? These are legal terms, Donnie. You can't just make up phrases to fit your mood. There are legal consequences! Arrgh!
