The president is illiterate. He doesn’t read, but he does do a little writing. With a Sharpie! Part of his daily routine includes having aides print out articles on him, which he then covers in his crazily scrawled editorial notes, such as ”BAD WRITER!”, ”BAD PICTURE (NO SURPRISE)” and ”OH REALLY!”. He’s a regular H.L. Mencken.
On Wednesday mister president brought his own talking points, written out by hand, with one of those Sharpies he’s known to prefer, out on the White House lawn where he talked to reporters over the whirl of his helicopter, defending himself amid American Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland‘s testimony by reading from hand-written notes insisting he did not want a “quid pro quo.”
Trump began reading notes of what he says he talked about during an early September phone call with Sondland, who was trying to figure out whether the $400 million in military aid was being linked to whether Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy would publicly announce investigations into Joe and Hunter Biden and a debunked conspiracy involving Democrats and the 2016 election.
Some of Trump’s talking points are captured by a Reuters photographer.
