An article from June 2017 entitled "Donald Trump might be the dimmest President the US has ever had" is making the rounds again, and there's been some debate about this on Twitter. Well, there really has been no debate. Instead, people are just tweeting the obvious response: "Might be?"
Much of Emmett Lee Dickinson's poem "He's dropped so low -- in all Regard" (below on the left), written in 1853, seems to document much what is going on with Trump today:
* He drops lower and lower in the polls (TBH, I can't fathom why even 39% of the population would support this fraud).
* He's dumber than a bag of stones.
* Many say his mind is unsound -- to the point that he is unhinged.
* He always applauds himself (recently he graded his presidency with an "A+," and he was thankful for himself on Thanksgiving).
* He generates racist scares, and he continues to amass wealth through shady politics and tax breaks for the rich.
It is simply amazing how visionary Dickinson was with this poem. Dickinson's poem also inspired third cousin Emily to pen her poem "It dropped so low -- in my Regard" (below on the right).
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
He’s dropped so low – in all Regard –
He’s fallen ‘neath the Ground –
And dumber than a bag of Stones
They say his Mind’s unsound –
We blame the Fate that brung it – forth
Though he applauds Himself
For generating Racist Scares
As he amasses Wealth –
By Emily Dickinson:
It dropped so low – in my Regard –
I heard it hit the Ground –
And go to pieces on the Stones
At bottom of my Mind –
Yet blamed the Fate that flung it – less
Than I denounced Myself,
For entertaining Plated Wares
Upon my Silver Shelf –
