Turns out it can always get worse, though in an admittedly mezmerizing sort of way. After the Washington Post Editorial Board met with Drumpf, they released, straight-faced, a transcript of the hour-long meeting. You may have thought it was surreal listening to The Donald speak, but there's nothing - except perhaps that famously replayed loop of the second plane churning into the Twin Towers - like seeing his mangled words in print. Given the blistering non-endorsement that followed, the WaPo honchos presumably knew just what they were doing by publishing, as is, the stupefyingly WTF mix of words - airports, China, ISIS, winning, bridges, me me me me. This is a small, sick, mean, racist, hand-and-penis-obsessed, twistedly narcissistic, and deeply insecure person. This is a moron. Oh, America.

As a great scientist and engineer, actually more than anything else. Dr. John Trump, a great guy. I’m an intelligent person.”
