    No, no Richard. Only you. The rest are simply misinformed.

    I’d like to offer a new category. When one is crazy but not stupid and acts stupid to throw off the hint that they are crazy, then I call that a Buffoon. Donald Trump, or the mouth as we know him in NY, is crazy but not stupid, in fact very smart. I put him on the ultimate top of the buffoon scale. However, his followers, as I can think of no other description, are usually not crazy but they are stupid for believing in his unachievable delusions of grandeur. I haven’t figured out a word yet for them other than stupid.

    Richard, I was just yanking. I don’t think you’re stupid. Well, you’re not are you? I mean, I don’t know if you’re stupid or not. Well, maybe you are. Nah, you’re not stupid. Voting for the mouth? Well who knows. Well maybe. OK, you’re stupid.

    OK,OK,OK. No, of course you’re not stupid. I’m just yanking. But crazy, now that’s another matter. Anyway, maybe I did make up the name “the mouth” but it fits pretty well; don’t know for sure, but back in the 80s in NY I think that’s what they called him. Maybe it was someone else. Maybe I’m crazy, but certainly not stupid. Hey, maybe we both have something in common; we’re not stupid, but maybe we’re crazy. Dem convention night one went really well.
