In the new book A Very Stable Genius recounts Trump’s war with reading and understanding the US Constitution. Trump was asked to be on a HBO special on the Constitution and he only had to read small passage. No one else had trouble with reading the Constitution but Trump: .”....the president stumbled, trying to get out the words in the arcane, stilted form the founding fathers had written. Trump grew irritated. “It’s very hard to do because of the language here,” Trump told the crew. “It’s very hard to get through that whole thing without a stumble.” He added, “It’s like a different language, right?” The cameraman tried to calm Trump, telling him it was no big deal, to take a moment and start over. Trump tried again, but again remarked, “It’s like a foreign language.”” ... “It’s Like a Foreign Language”: Donald Trump’s Encounter With the Constitution Did Not Go Well Can you imagine if Obama said this. But it makes sense for the semi-literate Trump. I would also guess that most Trumplicans would agree that the US Constitution is like a foreign language, since most of them haven’t a clue what it says or what it means. Trump obviously has no idea what his Constitutional role is which is why he keeps running roughshod over the Constitution.
