Donald Trump leads a very active fantasy life. In his fantasy life he is an unerringly successful businessman and he is always right in his predictions. In real life, he is a serial bankrupt who has created a smaller return on investment than if he’d just bought US Savings Bonds and he is provably and demonstrably wrong about virtually every claim he’s made to being prescient.

“Well, what I mean by that is it almost shouldn’t have been done. And you know, I really don’t even know what I mean, because that was a long time ago, and who knows what was in my head.”

Now he has attempted the same thing in regards to Libya. Trump was back, again, calling in to Morning Joe. Morning Joe has always been a very, very, very, very friendly venue for Trump.

If anyone is still under the illusion that his “list” of prospective Supreme Court nominees is any more substantial than his tax policy, his wall, or his position on Libya and Syria then they deserve whatever they get should Donald Trump become president.
