Oh, and it’s plainly evident that he knows AotD inside and out. If he didn’t read it, then he must have written it.
Elsewhere, on the wrong thread, someone’s harping that The Donald doesn’t read, and doesn’t attend briefings. When have we had a POTUS like that? I’ll give you a hint: we had one just like that for eight years before this one. People got on his case for it, too.
Executive summaries are for executives. A smart executive gets multiple summaries from different summarizers. A stupid executive reads just one summary, and an even stupider executive tries to read everything himself.
And just because someone doesn’t read what you think he should read doesn’t make him illiterate. After all, the stuff a lot of people think everyone should read is utter crap. I know, because I’ve read some of it.
I once had a discussion with a guy with a phenomenally high IQ (definition: higher than mine, and I’m well into the top percentile) about Moby Dick. He said the book is stupid because Ahab is stupid. I told him he’d missed the point. It’s not really about Ahab at all. All the same, you’re better off just watching the movie. The one with Gregory Peck. There’s a lot of info in the book that just doesn’t have any practical application unless you’re a 19th century whaler.
