So if Donald Trump is going to call his opponents a bunch of idiots, then the least he can do is release his college transcripts, argues Rick Moran on PJ Media:
He said that Jeb Bush was “not a smart person” and Marco Rubio was “foolish and stupid.” He called John McCain a “dummy.” He said that Rick Perry should “take an IQ test.”
Now he comes out and says Rand Paul is “a spoiled brat without a properly functioning brain.”
What is it with these sandbox epithets? Five year olds shout “stupid” and “dummy” at one another, not grown men seeking the most powerful office in the world.
The obvious explanation is that Donald Trump has a massive insecurity when it comes to his own intelligence. He uses the insults to try to prove to himself that he is the equal of the mostly accomplished men and women who are running for the presidency. He also constantly refers to himself a “smart”or “a really smart person,” trying to convince himself of his own intellectual gifts.
He could prove it to us all — if he would only release his college transcripts.
