Twitter slams Trump’s clueless debate answers with #TrumpBookReport

Back in July, the Washington Post pointed out that Donald Trump isn’t a big fan of books.

According to Trump, it’s a time thing. “I’m always busy doing a lot,” Trump said according to the Post. “Now I’m more busy, I guess, than ever before.”

In a tweet fired off after the third and final presidential debate Wednesday night, St. Louis mayoral candidate Antonio French observed that Trump’s debate performance sounded like a “teenager” giving a book report on a book he’s never read.

The tweet sparked the hashtag #TrumpBookReport, and the rest is history:

From the Washington Post:

[Trump] said in a series of interviews that he does not need to read extensively because he reaches the right decisions “with very little knowledge other than the knowledge I [already] had, plus the words ‘common sense,’ because I have a lot of common sense and I have a lot of business ability.”

Trump said he is skeptical of experts because “they can’t see the forest for the trees.” He believes that when he makes decisions, people see that he instinctively knows the right thing to do: “A lot of people said, ‘Man, he was more accurate than guys who have studied it all the time.’”
