Trump just stunned the Pakistani Prime Minister with his display of ignorant arrogance

This morning, President Trump met with the press in the Oval Office with the Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan, and it almost immediately descended into his usual mess of preposterous bravado and embarrassing displays of ignorance.


Almost immediately, President Trump claimed that he was asked to help solve the diplomatic crisis between Pakistan and India over the province of Kashmir, and he clearly thinks it would be an easy feat.

The Kashmir conflict has smoldered since 1947 and has provoked no less than three wars during that time. By alleging that Indian Prime Minister Modi had asked him to mediate the razor-sharp tensions between the two nations, Trump may have just opened a whole new can of worms by making the Indians look weak in front of their rivals.

It’s hard to see how the President would make any kind of progress, especially since he went on to display his complete ignorance of the region in his next set of statements:

The president of the United States sounded like a sixth-grader trying to fudge a social studies report he hadn’t actually done any of the reading for with his empty praise for Pakistan’s “tremendous product.”

Clearly, he has no idea what that product might be — but in Trump world, who needs details when you can shield yourself with all your imaginary friends?

It is a sad state of affairs for our nation when the president embarrasses himself so utterly every single time he has a press conference with the leaders of foreign nations. Unwilling to put forth even the most cursory effort to learn anything about the countries he’s talking with, our arrogant President is a living caricature of the stereotypical ignorant American, and it is not going to be easy to repair our international standing when he’s finally gone.
