One day after telling a crowd of thrill seekers at a Trump rally near Bridgeport, that he was the smartest man alive, he stumbled when answering a simple question in a sixth grade civics class.
|Trump is stumped when quizzed on Adams|
Trump made a cockeyed face, played with his tie, shifted from one leg to the other and cleared his throat before answering, "Mr. Adams was known as a great beer brewer. I've never drank any, but some of the hot women I've known, swear it is still pretty good."
A hush came over the room before the room exploded with childhood laughter. Trump became noticeably irritated and signaled for his secret service agents to clear the kids out of the room. As the class room was emptied, one of his aides whispered something into his ear. Trump's eyes widened and he grabbed the microphone. "I was joking for God's sake, everybody knows that! John Adams was the second or third President of the United States. Someone be sure and tell those little laughing brats that."
Trump was then led out of the classroom where he was met by the news media who began questioning his claim of being the smartest man alive.
"Look, I told you I was joking when I said that. Go ahead, ask me a question with some meat to it. We all like meat don't we? I mean I'm a meaty type of guy, you can ask the Mrs."
A reporter from the UK quickly asked Trump who his favorite movie stars were. "Now there's a meaty question. I like that," he replied. "You gotta like Larry, Curly, and Moe, right? I do. I mean the Three Stooges were just joking. They were good at it, maybe the best, after me that is."
He was quickly whisked away by his aides before any more questions could be asked. OFF THE WALL NEWS reporter Dick Tater was allowed to follow the candidate into his waiting bus and will file a report at a later date.
