Watch As Resurfaced Video Of Trump Seems To Show He Doesn’t Understand The Meaning Of Oval Office

He is so stupid it hurts. It physically hurts.

There is almost never a time that Donald Trump isn’t doing something stupid. A quick glance at his Twitter account, chock full of manic tweets penned from his own fat thumbs and ridiculous retweets from some of the nation’s biggest and most insane conspiracy theorists, is proof enough of that.

Frankly, it really doesn’t bode well for the guy who claimed during his campaign days and continues to claim now to be the smartest man that ever walked the face of the earth. However, as terrible as it is, we’ve all kind of grown accustomed to his bullshit.

It’s not that we don’t care anymore. We always, always care. But for one, you have to do something to preserve your sanity in this freakishly Orwellian day and age. And secondly, when he’s locking brown people in cages by the thousands, signing off on the slaughter of some of our closest allies, and attempting to extort whole entire countries for his own personal, political gain, well, it just makes it kind of difficult to get too terribly up in arms when he tweets some bullshit on the regular.

But, every once in a while, one of Trump’s extra stupid transgressions makes its way back to the front and center of social media for us all to share a lugubrious laugh that helps stave off the existential dread for just a few more minutes. Sometimes, if we’re really lucky, there’s video footage documenting his extraordinary stupidity and that makes it all the better.

And that’s precisely what we’ve been gifted with this go-around.

As Trump’s formal impeachment process is now in full swing and the next election is quickly creeping up on the dictator wannabe yet another resurfaced video has crept up on him as well, reminding us all of just how ignorant the guy really and truly is.

The footage is of a 2017 Face The Nation interview Trump participated in on the heels of his first 100 days in office.

Host John Dickerson attempted to squeeze some intellect or at least some form of deep-thinking out of the turnip when he spoke of former POTUS George W. Bush’s musings of the corner-free Oval Office that leaves the president nowhere to hide — something Bush saw as a symbol of accountability, meaning that all things come around to the president’s lap in the end.

But Donald Trump doesn’t have the mental capacity for metaphors — what with all those porn stars and naked beauty pageant contestants taking up space in that Adderall-riddled brain of his — and instead completely failed to see or understand the importance of the Oval Office, only noticing that it really did, in fact, not have a single corner to its name. Literally.

“Well, there’s truth to that,” Trump stated in his reply. “There is truth to that. There are certainly no corners. And you look, there’s a certain openness. But there’s nobody out there. You know, there is an openness, but I’ve never seen anybody out there actually, as you could imagine.”

Sometimes you think, “Maybe he couldn’t possibly be as stupid as he’s putting on, right? No one could possibly be that stupid.”

But he is. He really, really is.
