The President just held a press conference at the White House dedicated to trashing Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for refusing to meet him on a budget deal – but was forced to divert his attention and address the latest missile launch by the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea.
Our inspiring leader announced that “we will take care of it… it is a situation that we will handle” but failed to elaborate on what he would do about it.

It soon became clear that President Trump had not a clue about what actually happened, what the consequences could be, or how we should even begin to respond to this act of aggression.
The White House columnist for the Agence France Presse discovered Trump’s hand-written notes on the North Korea situation, and they prove once again that the President not only is barely capable of writing, it calls into serious question the President’s mental faculties.

That’s all he said on the issue during his stated remarks. While it’s true that perhaps he hadn’t had a chance to be briefed on the issue, it begs the question of why he would need to write down such a simple note.
Does he not trust himself to remember that? He’s already shown a distressing inability to remember basic facts or maintain coherent trains of thought for more than a few minutes at a time.
Trump says he has the “best memory of all time” – but the fact that he has to take to scrawling the most basic of notes in sharpie like a toddler with construction paper should be ringing alarm bells throughout the White House.
