Just one example…

I verified this was an accurate quote here. I originally found it here with the clearer formatting.

Quote:

Look, having nuclear (my uncle
was a great professor and scientist
and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT)

good genes
very good genes, OK
very smart

the Wharton School of Finance
very good
very smart

You know, if you’re a conservative Republican
if I were a liberal (if, like, OK)
if I ran as a liberal Democrat
they would say I’m one of the smartest
people anywhere in the world

—it’s true!—

but when you’re a conservative Republican they try

—oh, do they do a number—

that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student
went there
went there
did this
built a fortune

—you know I have to give my like credentials all the time,
because we’re a little disadvantaged—

but you look at the nuclear deal the thing that really bothers me
—it would have been so easy
and it’s not as important as these lives are

(nuclear is powerful;
my uncle explained that to me many
many years ago the power
and that was 35 years ago
he would explain the power
of what’s going to happen and he was right
—who would have thought?

but when you look at what’s going on with the four prisoners

—now it used to be three, now it’s four—

but when it was three and even now
I would have said it’s all in the messenger; fellas
and it is fellas because, you know,
they don’t
they haven’t
figured that the women are smarter right now
than the men,
so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years

but the Persians are great negotiators
the Iranians are great negotiators
so
and they, they just killed, they just killed us.

Try to figure what he meant to say.  If unable, I think a reddit commentor got it close with this:

“Nuclear weapons are dangerous. It doesn’t take a genius to know that. The Iranians are brilliant negotiators and they managed to cut a deal with us that heavily favored them and their nuclear program. I wont make mistakes like that.”

I’m starting to buy in to the idea that he has the early signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s. His style has always been rambling, but in the more recent appearances where he not reading from a teleprompter, his lack of coherency is astounding.

But these are just my thoughts. ~64 million Americans voted for him last November, and many of those still support him.

By attacking the very notion of shared reality, the president-elect is making normal democratic politics impossible. When the truth is little more than an arbitrary personal decision, there is no common ground to be reached and no incentive to look for it.
