Quote of the Week – A Moron in the White House

Section:

Donald Trump’s presidency was worryingly first predicted in July 1920

 

blank

In ten days time, on 20th January 2017, the world will watch in horror as a reality television “star” is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America.

 

Bizarrely, this was predicted in July 1920 by H. L. Mencken, a journalist known as the ‘Sage of Baltimore’, in a column for the city’s Evening Sun newspaper. He wrote:

The larger the mob, the harder the test. In small areas, before small electorates, a first-rate man occasionally fights his way through, carrying even the mob with him by force of his personality. But when the field is nationwide, and the fight must be waged chiefly at second and third hand, and the force of personality cannot so readily make itself felt, then all the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre – the man who can most easily adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum.

 

The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

 

Mencken plainly foresaw the Presidency of Donald Trump and he equally surmised how Twitter would play its part in his rise. America has ditched reason and its chosen deviousness and mediocrity. God help us all.

  1. Donald Trump should lock you up Steeple!!!!!!!!!! He is going to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN and he beat Crooked Hillary hands down!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You left wing establishment elite people are finished!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Accept reality!!!!!!!!! Get on the page!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. This is ridiculous and irrelevant to the modern age! Donald Trump won fair and square and you should leave him be. I ask that he prioritise the search for Madeleine McCann though as he’s not touched on this yet in his campaign. I am concerned that dear Gerry and Kate are helped in their efforts to find their beloved daughter. FIND MADELEINE, FIND HER NOW.

    • Are you mad Pam? Madeleine is dead. The blood and cadaver dogs found her body fluids in the back of the McCanns hire car 28 days after she vanished and also behind a settee and in a cubboard in 5a. Kate’s response to cadaverine on her clothes and her childs toy was that she inspected bodies a week before while working as a GP. That was proved to be as untrue as jemmied shutters. Kindly don’t deliver me a similar response to the one the the male part of that Duo gave. It would be as unintelligent as his other utterings

  3. Not only was Mencken an anti-semite, he said very bad things about black people. The views you quote from him are profoundly anti-democratic. Doubtless you think the world should be governed by the 1%. Things are changing – get with the programme.

  4. It’s strange how one moron brings all the other morons out of the woodwork.
    I thought we had heard the last of the Looney Trott, and as for Rod, well, I’m convinced he’s just a robot on auto pilot.
