Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told Fox News Tuesday that he was amazed by the “incredible prowess” failed, one-term ex-president Donald Trump demonstrated whenever he would interact with the media.
Here’s the video:
Prowess is defined as:
“Skill or expertise in a particular activity or field.”
Does that sound like Trump? What skill or expertise does the twice-impeached former head of state have other than lying and filing for bankruptcy?
As for Trump’s supposed prowess when it came to dealing with the media, there are endless examples of him making a complete fool of himself when asked simple questions.
During the COVID pandemic, Trump insisted on leading the daily updates on what his administration was doing to combat the virus. That led to these humiliating scenes, according to ABC News:
“So supposing we hit the body with a tremendous — whether it’s ultraviolet or just a very powerful light — and I think you said that hasn’t been checked because of the testing,” Trump said. “And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or some other way, and I think you said you’re going to test that too. Sounds interesting.”
“Then I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that,” he continued.
Asked on the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malaria drug unproven to treat COVID-19 that Trump has called a game changer, the president defended the unproven drug, citing, “a feeling.”
“Look, it may work and it may not work. And I agree with the doctor, what he said: It may work, it may not work. I feel good about it. That’s all it is. Just a feeling. You know, I’m a smart guy. I feel good about it,” he said on March 20.
How’s that for prowess? The word is quite clearly irrelevant if it applies to the Donald, which it most certainly doesn’t.
Twitter roared with laughter in response to Meadows:
