Trump: Reading Is Overrated

Via Mediaite:

“I know more about Syria than Marco Rubio knows about Syria,” Trump boasted. “I know about us beating ISIS and us trying to knock out ISIS, and them wanting to go against [Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad], and Assad saying, ‘I can’t believe it, Americans are killing my enemy, this is the greatest thing happening to me.’” . . .

“Yes, but how do you now know more about Syria than Marco Rubio?” [CNN’s Alisyn Camerota] asked.

“Look, Marco Rubio sits behind a desk sometimes, and he reads stuff, and he’s in committees. That’s all he does,” Trump said. “I create jobs all day long. I know more about all of this than all of them put together. Believe me, we’ll have a winning strategy.”

Ha! That Rubio, with his committees and his reading! What a chump! What do they even read on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, anyway? Probably not The Art of the Deal!

Which is a real shame. It’s Bashar Assad’s favorite book! He told Trump . . . that one time . . . down in Mar-a-Lago. . .
