The premise that President Donald J. Trump can barely read is
growing by leaps and bounds.
As the Full Frontal host said in a segment that premiered on Facebook Live , Bee began by reviewing tape of a recently unsealed deposition in which Trump was repeatedly asked to read from legal documents and refused, first saying he didn't have his glasses and then using the excuse that he's not a lawyer. "Objection!" Bee said. "How can you expect someone who isn't a fancy-pants lawyer to read words?"
Also: how can you expect someone with a sketchy education to read extensively? His transcripts, like his tax returns, are not available. He was a shadowy figure at Wharton:
One former classmate in an Accounting class remembers, "He rarely showed up to class and "everyone" knew he bought the answers to the final exam. He spent little time on campus preferring to travel back and forth to New York City."
Now we know why whenever he says "I'm really smart" it sounds as if its coming from someone who just passed his GED on the third try. In fact, his campaign speeches had grammar just above the sixth grade - just about the same level as his followers on Facebook.
